Price Drops.
Hi all. Of the ones that I've tried (which are a few): I would say Finamore, Kiton, Loro Piana/Borrelli (I hope I'm not cheating). Cheers Clint
Hi all, I'm thinking about selling some of my stuff off to pay some bills. I know what the market is like, so I want to price the stuff keenly to move. However, I want to "test the water" by listing these items. I doubt that there'll be price drops as they are as low as practicable (especially with shipping from the UK being expensive). I may as well keep them, than drop. The prices quoted are for Paypal Personal Payments. Please add 4% if you wish to pay in the...
LOL, you're quite right. I'm not going to fight it. After all, I'm still getting the items for a very good price. I just like to understand how/why things works. You've tried valiantly to explain and I do understand. I just guess that i'd better buy less from the States . Thanks again Clint Quote: Originally Posted by clee1982 you can try to fight it, but not sure if it will be successful. I think someone was able to buy a pair of EG in...
Thanks for the explanation. I figured that this was pretty much the case. The "problem" that I have is that previously, one could "get away" without any Tax or duty.

That's the bit I...

Hi, having purchased this 100% cashmere Kiton SC from a respected member here (who assured me that it was New Without Tags), I find that it is just too big for me. So, I'm ideally looking to trade this coat for something else which is around EU52 - EU54 of a similar value. Important: The sleeves have been altered (by the original owner) and have working buttons. Therefore, please make a note of the mesurements. SOLD Shoulder Seam to Shoulder Seam - 20" Pit...
Very impressive. Now, if I was slighly smaller and taller.... Excellent selection of items.
