 Good point and I do see that, too.  However, there are a few auctions where it specifically states it's "rare" and "expensive" shell cordovan (and frequently described as "cordovan shell") and how it retails for $650 you can get it at a cheap price.  Then you look at the picture and it's an old, creased up pair of calf (or not even) shoes.   That's actually nice to hear, maybe I should do the same.  I've become pretty cynical towards eBay lately after a handful of crappy...
Speaking of amateur flippers, I can't believe how many people are listing "cordovan shell" shoes that are clearly not shell.  Part of me wants to send them a message telling them they aren't shell, but then I stop myself because I'm certain I'm heading into a world of hurt.  I wonder how many are just ignorant and how many are actually trying to deceive.  
 $30 was my third offer.  I ended up using BIN to get it after that...
I submitted a few offers on a pair of J&M shoes recently.  My final offer was $30 and it was refused after a day of waiting.  I think the BIN price was $32.50.   Some people just make no sense.
Ohmagod, if I get one more fuckstick canceling an auction that I've bid on I'm going to scream.  Does this happen to other people more than it used to, or am I just blessed?  I've seriously had half a dozen people do it just this year so far.  I can count on one hand the number of times it happened to me in the previous 14 years.   Current eBay mood = why do I do this?   /rant
 I'd guess most of it is going to be transportation and immigration fees.  People just aren't as cheap as they used to be.  
Hands down, cafepress.com
I have this (very similar) Proper Cloth shirt coming this week and I'm really looking forward to it:   I've decided that I like the spread collar with french cuffs (with silk knots) with a grenadine tie for wearing with my canvas Bills Khakis and #8 shell boots.  Sure, it may be a bit confused in formalities, but I don't really care.
The road to personal style is a long one filled with many mistakes.  You're going to want to experiment with different fabrics, cuts, etc and find out which ones you like and why you like them, then capitalize on that.  I think a lot of people would suggest starting small because overbuying is a mistake almost everybody makes in the beginning...but maybe it's one they need to make.
And in the USPS commercials they show them clearly taping over the bar code
