Is selling stuff on eBay worthwhile?

Is selling stuff on eBay worthwhile?
This is kind of a twist on “Should I or shouldn’t I buy?” Instead I’m wondering “Should or shouldn’t I sell?”I have a few items of clothing that I never really liked and almost never wear: a couple fine-gauge knits from Charles Tyrwhitt, a pair of department store jeans, etc. All in good condition with minimal wear. Is selling these things on eBay worth the trouble of shipping and dealing with potential bad buyers? Or would low-to-midrange items not fetch enough cash to be worthwhile?I don’t really want this to go into simple questions, as I’m hoping to spark more general discussion of when selling stuff is or isn’t a good idea.

What are some well-fitting dress shirt for top-heavy guys?

What are some well-fitting dress shirt for top-heavy guys?
So I have a 17.5″ collar, a 44″ chest, but only a 34″ waist. This almost always means that to find a dress shirt that fits me in the upper body, I’m buying bed-sheet shirts. Any MFAers found a brand whose fit has a good taper for top heavy/athletic/triangle-shaped guys? As a baseline, Charles Tyrwhitt extra slim fit is too baggy at the waist for me (and I don’t want to buy a smaller neck size, since I occasionally have to wear a tie).EDIT: Yep, forgot an “s” in the title.

Leather jacket newbie here. How to pull it off?

Leather jacket newbie here. How to pull it off?
Hey guys,I picked up this leather jacket from a consignment store for a steal ($185) early on in the summer. The jacket’s fit on me is absolutely perfect in my opinion and I’d like to make it a central part of my wardrobe now that fall is on its way (I live in Chicago).I’ve always wanted a leather jacket and now that I have one I don’t know much about wearing it with style. The best I can come up with is a white T-shirt, gray (or dark) jeans and white sneakers (I have Killshots). I also picked up a pair of JCrew Kenton Plain Toe Boots that match really well with the jacket.My question to you stylish gentlemen (and ladies) is how do I go beyond the simple T-shirt, leather jacket, and jeans look that is my go-to so far? Any layering I could be doing? I feel like I should definitely take advantage of steal I got for that jacket.

Thursday Discussion: Discontent

Thursday Discussion: Discontent
We’ve done several “contentedness” threads but we’ve never done discontent, so here goes.Every six months or so I feel the urge to throw out all of my old clothes and buy an entirely new wardrobe. I look at stuff that I LOVED just a few months ago and can’t stand it. I want to make radical changes (well probably not actually radical – but going from all black to adding a splash of color feels radical to me) and completely change my style.Sometimes the feeling passes if I wait long enough and sometimes I give into it and sell stuff. Often, I regret selling something a few months later when my tastes have circled back. I don’t know if it’s boredom or dissatisfaction or what, but it’s definitely frustrating.Does anyone else experience feelings like that? How do you fight it? What do you think is at the root of it?Are you bored for another reason? Dissatisfied with your wardrobe? Tell me about it, I’m here to listen.
