I actually was one of the first guys who saw that thread when the seller created
Was discussing a deal for the Stooges Small /LS silky lamb AW10 gleam and Intarsia XS Release SS10 oiled calf for 1500 USD. These leathers seem ok , not really grails or sought after. Much prefer the AW season in oiled calf or hammered lamb.
Was about the hit the send money, then had second thoughts - I tried the stooges a while back and didnt work out for me. Was tempted by the prices too to be honest. and rather save myself the hassle from trying to resell if it didn't work out.
My advise is just wait for what you actually want and pay a bit extra for it. Dont be tempted by the prices
I am actually waiting for an intarsia oiled calf AW10 gleam to show up
