I’ve always loved Ralph Lauren’s unapologetically American styling and aesthetic — he, to this day, manages to parlay casual sophistication without it feeling contrived. That said, I didn’t get really into RL until I discovered the brand’s vintage pieces selling secondhand all of the internet. SO MANY HORSES. SO MUCH WOOL. SO, SO GOOD. Go ahead, take a walk in someone else’s riding pants — you’ll be glad you did!
- I never recommend anything I wouldn’t buy myself, and I keep an eye on price to ensure the consignment price is significantly lower than the cost of buying new.
- I double check Poshmark finds to ensure there are no obvious signs of overwear or damage.
- Remember: Poshmark encourages offers, and you can often achieve a 20-30% lower price using this tool. It differs from eBay’s bidding system in that you will automatically be awarded the purchase if the buyer accepts your offer price. A seller can also counteroffer a different price, which you will be prompted to accept, counteroffer, or decline.
- Search the product name in The RealReal before buying, if your purchase can wait. I’ve noticed if TRR has a lot of a certain product in stock, the products they received more recently will be priced higher than the items that have been in the system for a while.
