2 words: deep pile.

the more muppet-y the better these things seem to do.

o.g. printed synchilla is $$ also.

Oh here's a question for you guys. So I sold 4 perfume samples, buyer says 2 were empty, I don't believe him but refund him for the 2 anyway. Problem is he's already left negative feedback. Can he change it?

He added a reply/comment to say 'cool' but that doesn't really help me since it's filed as a negative. Assuming he actually wants to change it, how can he? (is this really simple and I'm missing it?)

Thanks y'all.


Yes, you can send him/her a feedback revision form and hope for the best.

Looks like maybe a 1980s version. Are the tags still in? Old Patagonia fleeces can go for ridiculous money. I heard of a ~1982 model selling for $2000.

They are still in it:

It's definitely a Fall 1988 model. The coloration, especially on the fleece side is consistent with stuff in the Spring 1988 catalog. This particular model isn't in that catalog, though Patagonia rarely put everything in the catalogs. I wish I had the Fall catalog from that year, as they did tend to put all of the jackets in the fall catalogs...

Appreciate it, dude. I've had like 5 offers between $100-$125 so I was trying to figure out WHY it was so desirable to these people.

Because Patagonia stuff never goes out of style with those who appreciate it. They probably had that jacket in the 80s, and want nothing more than to have it on their backs again... I feel the same way about a few key pieces of Patagonia gear (mostly, the expedition weight capilene Wallace Beery (henley) shirts. I loved those things, and they haven't made them for years. Fortunately, I thrifted one a couple of years ago. Perfect for those cold weather snowshoe hikes like the one I'm doing tomorrow. ;)

Good stuff! I'll probably just let it ride out on auctions then. I mean if 5 people are willing to pay that, maybe they'll get it cheaper(or pay more). Appreciate all the insight. You should link to your Patagonia guide in your signature to make it easy for me to find haha.

You might be surprised to learn that in 1988, Patagonia had a line called "Unfashion", which included things like travel Blazers...

Haha, this. I know he posted it recently but I forgot to read and now I can't find it.

Does anyone else find the label bombing that some people do with their listings super annoying?  I'm not talking about things like the Barbera/Attolini thing, I am talking about people who take an Isaia jacket and just randomly throw in Brioni , Kiton, etc in the title .  Seems to be happening more lately

Yup. Keyword spamming. It's so annoying as a buyer and against eBay T&C (search and browse manipulation), so I always report it. I don't want to see your JCPenney knockoff when I'm looking for a Baracuta Harrington.

Edit: and rereading that policy, it seems like that if it's not on the label, you can't/shouldn't include it. So the Barbera/Attolini thing may not be kosher.

Years ago ebay was full of it: JC Penney not Brioni Kiton...

Yep, officially, that's not cool.  Still gonig to list my EZ slacks by Inco, PRL by corneliani, etc until it gets called out.  Things like that slide under the radar.
