just found it a little offensive that he's asking for significantly more than what he bought it for, and isn't disclosing the fact that the jacket is pretty beat up and has a leather rip/tear at the bottom of the front/right zipper. 

aside from that, this isn't B&S so he should GTFO

We're assuming Chaos did PM him, since he didn't list the price yet Chaos knows what he's asking. And he didn't tell Chaos that it's defective.

I have no problem with trying to turn a profit.

i did PM him. i'm not going to post his responses but needless to say this guy is pretty shady. it's evident that he's using the RP thread to advertise the jacket before he posts it to B&S to gather more interest; the least he can do is be upfront about the damage to the jacket in this thread. 

 

i'm not usually opposed to flipping and selling at a profit but just from the things he was mentioning via PM, i figured i would give a heads up to the rest of the users here so that any potential buyers don't get screwed over. also, it's sellers like this guy that drive up prices (tacking on a profit margin on top of the original cost/shipping/fees of the item) in the marketplace with over-inflated shit, it's no wonder the B&S doesn't move.

B&S really, really sucks these days. I miss the old days.

Would be great if you could post a short review when you get them.

Well, these came in today. Definitely should have sized down one. Really disappointed to say the least, since the shoes themselves are very nice (if a bit shinier irl than the stock photos). One cool detail I didn't notice is that the 'eyelets' are actually just embossed (or is it debossed?) into the leather. I would not pay full retail for these, but they are certainly worth the $250 that I paid.

If anyone is interested in these (sz 42, but best for a 43) before I send them back feel free to shoot me a PM. If this offer is part of the 'no advertising' clause then I'll take it down right away shog[1].gif

pure cluster fuck, cannot find anything
post #35608 of 45778
The new B&S format is much better than the old one, people just don't tag things appropriately. Search by category is vastly improved. If you want to see a shitty marketplace system, look at SuFu.

The content/pricing of B&S is a different matter.

supermarket has gotten easier to navigate, 72hours bump is long though.
post #35610 of 45778

SuFu's site's functions needs to enforce the mechanics that make it succeed instead of relying on users to use it. Or there just needs to be sub boards. That place is a clusterfuck.
