Everything You Need To Get Started As A Consignor!

Please let us know if you have any other questions!

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CONSIGNMENT STORE AND A THRIFT STORE?

At a Consignment Stores you contractually agree to have your items sold on your behalf for a percentage of a mutually agreed upon total sale price. At a thrift store you donate your items to be sold and you expect no compensation in return.  Some Men Like It Haute is a Men’s Fine Fashion and Accessories Consignment Store.
 

WHY A MEN’S ONLY CONSIGNMENT STORE?

Some Men Like It Haute recognizes that great fashion has no gender exclusivity or limitations so, while we specialize in men’s fashion and accessories, we welcomes all customers to consign and shop with us.  Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors have an abundance of thrift and consignment stores.  High end fashion consignment stores predominantly feature designer women’s clothing and usually have a small men’s selection.  Some Men Like It Haute was created to provide all individuals with an option for finding great men’s high end designer fashion and provide the oppportunity for reinvestment of your high end designer men’s fashion and accessories.  So whether it’s your own wardrobe, your significant other’s closet that needs a makeover, or you’re just looking for a great gift, please stop in and see us at Some Men Like It Haute!

HOW MAY I CONSIGN WITH YOU?

Please contact us at (954) 561-8650 to arrange an appointment to consign your fine men’s designer fashion and accessory items.  Please review our Consignment Quality Standards by clicking on the CONSIGNABLES tab on this page to determine if your fashion and accessory items will be a match for the designer, condition, season and other relevant criteria that we are looking for our store.
 
You will be asked to bring in your items and to complete a Consignment Contract. Once your items are accepted, you will be given a copy of your Consignment Contract, a detailed Consignor Inventory of your items and will be issued a Client Account Number that will be used for this and all future consignment contracts.  All Consignment Contracts are for 90 days. 
 

WHAT TYPE OF ITEMS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Some Men Like It Haute is looking for upscale designer men’s clothing and accessories in new or gently used condition.  We look for items that are one or two seasons ahead of the current season.  For example, in winter, we are looking for spring and summer fashion items – shorts, jeans, lighter fabric suits, sports coats, pants, short sleeve dress and polo shirts, sandals, etc.  We are always looking for great accessories such as hats, sunglasses, belts watches, luggage, bags, fine jewelry and watches.  A list of the upscale men’s fashion designers we are seeking is on our home page. We will also be featuring a select amount of finer home furnishings and decor, framed artwork, posters and photography.
 

WHAT IS GENTLY USED CONDITION?

Gently used means that the garment or item has been worn a very limited amount of times and shows little or no wear and tear.  There should be no damage (tears, buttons missing, wear marks, stains, etc). Chances are, if it was one of your favorite go to pieces to wear, it’s worn…not gently worn.
 

HOW MANY ITEMS MAY I CONSIGN AT A TIME?

We want to provide you with a pleasant, open shopping experience that is not cluttered and crowded with over packed racks and displays.  Initially we are setting a limit of 10 items per consignor but as our reputation grows, we may have to limit the number of items we accept as we have a limited amount of floor, display and storage space.
 

HOW IS THE PRICE DETERMINED?

All pricing is determined by Some Men Like It Haute.  Our pricing policy, in general, is if the item is brand new with the original designer tag and price tag, we will offer 50% of the original price as the starting selling price.  For example, if a new item is $1000.00, the starting sale price will be $500.00.  Gently worn items will be priced based on the designer, condition, style, season, and other relevant item critieria.
 

WHAT IS THE CONSIGNMENT COMMISSION PERCENTAGE?

Some Men Like It Haute provides a beautiful, upscale retail storefront in a high traffic location, professional quality sales staff and creative advertising to sell your items in the best possible environment! Our percentage commission policy for consignment sales is the consignor receives forty percent (40%) of the sale price after sales tax is deducted and Some Men Like It Haute receives sixty percent (60%) of the sale price after sales tax is deducted.
 

CONSIGNMENT LIABILITY

All consigned items remain the property of the owner are left at the owner’s risk.  Some Men Like It Haute is not responsible for loss by theft, fire, water damage, or negligent handling by customers.
 

HOW SOON WILL MY ITEMS BE SOLD?

Some Men Like It Haute will present your items in a beautiful, upscale retail setting, however there is no guarantee that your consigned items will be sold.  Our automatic reduced pricing policy is designed to move items that have been in the shop and may benefit from a lower price point. Your Consignment Contract is for 90 days.
 

WHEN CAN I EXPECT MY CONSIGNMENT COMMISSION CHECK?

Once your items have sold, we will contact you.  Please do not contact us to request the status of your consigned items, as this will distract our staff from focusing on customers who are in the store wishing to purchase your items. Settlement checks will be processed on the 15th,or the first business day, of the month after your item(s) have sold.  You may pick up your payment check at the store or we can mail it to the address we have on file.

WHAT IF MY CONSIGNED ITEMS DON’T SELL?

After 90 days, if your items have not sold, you have the option of reclaiming your items or leaving them for us to donate. You will be asked to select one option when you complete your Consignment Contract.  After 90 days, we will remove the items from the floor and handle them according to the specified option in your Consignment Contract. Consigned items that are not picked up 10 days after the contract deadline will become the property of Some Men Like It Haute and used for our Renaissance Man Program.

WHAT IS THE RENAISSANCE MAN PROGRAM?

We are planning to use all unclaimed and donated fashions and accessories for our Renaissance Man Program.  Your items will used to offer gentlemen who are re-entering the workforce and need a strong look for an interview or on the job.  Items that are not selected for our program will be donated to one of our favorite thrift stores or other non-profits! We will be happy to provide you with a receipt for your taxes as well!
