Buying shirts overseas & reselling locally

Recently a friend approach me asking do I have friends overseas.

He have this idea where he gets friends/friends of friends to buy branded stuff(Coach,off-white..) overseas where it might be cheaper and reselling it here in SG.

Personally I don't think it would work, any opinions on this?

How many ppl tompang? Ppl flying on business freq too busy to earn this little money
Ppl travel far away to Europe Or USA willing to tompang?
For ppl around me, the profit not worth the hassle.
Ppl willing to pay more than local but lower than online retailers.

Probably just enough margin to buy coffee and meet daily small expenses...some wont go through the hassles to make the small sum. Try it for experience after all make some money.
