I try not to lowball because I feel as though I appreciate the value of higher end stuff, but i certainly can see why people do it. it's whatever. you don't have to say yes.

We've been over this a billion times. Lowballs are whatever if they're polite. Lowballs are ok if they're actually offers (e.g. hey I don't have that much at the moment but can you maybe go down to xxxxx? if not let me know if you ever do). Low balls are NOT OK when they're demands, curt, and lowballs are not OK when they act like they're doing you a favor. It's obvious that you don't have to accept, but if you sell a lot this becomes the norm, making it really fucking annoying. Sellers already have to go through a whole lot to try and make their items attractive and sellable, the last thing we want is a bunch of assholes acting like it's a blessing that they would even offer you 50% of your asking price, shipped to Australia within the day, regardless of whether or not you have an OBO.

The general term low-ball is misused I think. I'm pretty sure it was used originally for craigslist and stuff where you would agree on a price and the buyer would show up with less than that amount, expecting to get it anyway. Like agreeing to buy a bike for $200 and both meeting a location halfway between neighborhoods and the buyer has $150. Getting a low offer online can be annoying, but that's a real dick move. Especially when the seller has just wasted time (and probably gasoline) - sometimes a lot in big metropolitan areas. But it makes him more inclined to not go home empty handed.

That jacket fits really small. When I owned it, it was really snug around the chest, shoulders and forearms. I'm at least five pounds leaner than I was then and I still think it would be too tight.

EDIT: Unless you're looking for a matte black that will wear over time, the snaps are a really dark gunmetal, close enough to black in real life and in most light.

how do you guys do if you want to buy something from Y!jp? make a normal account there and then use some proxy-service, or do you use sites like rinkya?

just went through hide-san sharpservice, per rec of a member here. so far so good, but i'm in no rush to get it so is ok if it takes some time...
