Well, for anyone reading this who hasn't used Gixen, just a quick update. Apparently you guys with multiple pairs of $500+ shoes decided to take pity on me and let me have these I got this pair of Santoni Ellison's for $79. http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=250285660487 Now... if they're real, and if they are in anything close to the shape they appear to be in, then I am wondering how the hell I could get such a deal. Whether or not they fit doesn't...

But yeah, this mostly occur with brands that are not SF endorsed. Wow, interesting question, one that honestly hadn't occurred to me. I have a feeling that if you polled SF members and asked them if they would be happy with a product if they purchased it as an...

You need one more...
[quote=lee_44106;1267497]With all due respect to your dry cleaner/alteration seamstress, she has no friggin clue what she's talking about. She would not know a Santoni from a Santini from a Santana the musician. [quote] lol.. I'll let her know you mentioned that In her defense, she was specifically talking about women's handbags but she did seem to think that the problem might extend to my Santoni shoes. Whoops, did i say Santoni? I meant Canali. It's a...

This thread may have helped you learn about fakes on ebay, but it also may have helped blow your spot (not that I'm going to the one bidding). Good luck. Hmmm... good point. It'll suck if I get...

Wow, I'm impressed by your connections! Thanks, this is making me feel a bot better. In the end, I understand that I'm buying a...

Products like Oxxford, Santoni, Edward Green, Incotex, etc are really too niche to warrant the making of a fake. I suspect Lin was talking about goods that have wider appeal. Hi there Yes, she did mentioned Chanel specifically when she was making her comments. I see, so the more niche products will...
I hope I can leave this post in this section, as opposed to WTB. I was at my dry cleaner today - she does my alterations as well. I was picking up a pair of RL jeans that I had hemmed. We were talking about getting older and wanting to start wearing better clothes. I told her that I wanted a pair of Santoni Oxfords and that I had found a great pair on eBay. You know how sometimes someone looks at you just after you've voiced an opinion and you just get the uneasy...

This is, needless to say, a foolish and entirely counterproductive practice on the part of the second bidder, but it is surprising to see how frequently it happens. Journeyman, thanks for your comments. Yes, I did a Google search on sniping and found a few studies on price discovery which showed...
