The most distinctive aspect of ReRuns, a U.S.-only website for pre-owned clothes, is their pledge to donate the entirety of their 20% seller’s fee profit to a charity of the seller’s choice. Otherwise, everything’s pretty standard–sellers list item photos, descriptions, and prices for buyers to review and then choose which charity ReRun’s profits will go to for the sale. Once an item is purchased by a buyer, sellers use ReRun’s shipping methods to send out their item. You can learn more on ReRun’s FAQ page here.
Have a suit made. Having a suit made is a perfect illustration of the idea expressed above. Number one, it takes time. And number two, you can almost guarantee that nobody will have the same exact suit. Sure, you could get that Ludlow suit from J.Crew tomorrow. You could go to SuitSupply. But so could everyone else. And a lot of people do because they need/want a new suit, and stat. Hunting for sartorial instant gratification will almost certainly lead to you awkwardly bumping into a coworker (or someone on the sidewalk) and being like, “Hey, um, we’ve got the same SuitSupply blazer…cool…”
