Yes, just filter by jeans. They're there.

 

Put in a request. I'd love to get a pair.

Here's one of mine.  Wore them all spring after I got them.

Red Wing for Jcrew 6" Moc-Toes.  Got it on steep discount during a sale, and they're now unfortunately discontinued.  My favorite beater pair by far.

Strange that an item shows up when filtered by jeans that doesn't show up when unfiltered.  I would have thought the unfiltered main screen would show all items.  Seems like a bug.

 

Check out the Japan #221 Indigo x black.  $79 is much less than I paid for my Japan #205 blue x black which were $135!

 

Steep price difference.  The #221 is 13.5 oz while the #205 is 13.0 oz, so very similar but the less expensive pair is more heavy weight.

 

I know that denim quality, rareness, and hence price vary.  But this is almost a 200% difference for what appears to be the same.

 

The #221 is likely a killer deal and I'd buy if I didn't already have the $205.

Finally got confirmation on the CXL briefcase funding.  I said earlier that I didn't care about the manipulation but I think I've changed my mind in this run -- it's pretty annoying to see something hit 90%+ one or two days in and then stay open 10+ days while staying at more or less 97 - 98% the whole time.  Sorry to rehash the whole issue - and I get that I'm not really negatively affected (unless the huge increase in orders leads to delays in fulfilling them) - I'm just saying I now understand why some people get annoyed because it's pretty bizarre in cases like this one.

I'm still not particularly "annoyed" by it, but I'll admit this one looked quite odd.  The #8 (clearly the favorite of the 3) took off from the start, but was obviously held up at the end.  Would definitely prefer they list it as 100% but allow overfunding.  I wouldn't even complain if they didn't want to say how many units they will allow to be overfunded, so they can maintain the "buy now or it may run out!" urgency.

 

Oh well, we all get our nice #8 briefcases anyway (hopefully).

What information do you guys have that points to manipulation vs. saturation of the mainstream Gustin customers?  It wouldn't surprise me at all that some things slow to a crawl based on the Gustin regulars getting on board and then having to wait for "regular" orders to flow in.

 

That is intended as an honest question btw

I have no information.  Nevertheless, I am confident that the chances that the first 90 - 93% funded in 24-36 hours and, without any manipulation, the remaining amount took 10 days, is miniscule.  Perhaps I am wrong.  Note that the same thing happened with the Dublin Nut Brown.

Just seems weird when they closed the CXL jackets and then re-opened saying they had more material.  They had a couple runs of Okayama Standard closer together than normal recently (I missed the first one, was surprised to see the second and ultimately had to cancel when it became clear I'd ordered the wrong size.  I'm now on the current order).


Anyway, it seems like there are multiple "normal" reasons why some things stretch out before I'd think "tampering"


But whatever - stuff seems to happen and deliver in the general expectation they set.  I can deal with that.

Also if you refer back to my prior observations about strange behavior on the #8 CXL bag, there would also have needed to be bursts of large numbers of cancellations because the %funded also went backward significant amounts in short periods of time and did not advance when backed.

 

If someone wants to imagine an incredible sequence including very large numbers of an item, bursts of many purchases, bursts of many cancellations, and then long gaps of no orders, etc then I guess they could explain the data without manipulation.  But anyone who interprets this data as the natural pattern of funding is trying hard to do so.

 

There have been numerous times when auctions follow weird patterns such as this.

 

It's fine that it bothers some of us (myself included) and doesn't bother others.

 

There are a lot of ways it could be improved.  A simple recent idea someone posted would be to allow a listing to hit 100% or 0 days and then put it in "bonus extension mode" and just flag that its been fully backed so will be produced, and could close any moment, but has been extended to accept bonus orders due to popular demand.  There are lots of better ways than modifying the number available midway through and causing the %backed to flip all around in weird ways.  If it bothers some of us fans then that should be enough reason to make an adjustment to the approach.

Lined oxblood is back in updated trucker.  Kind of makes me regret picking mine up last spring, as the updated trucker looks substantially improved over the first version.  That being said, the oxblood is still awesome so I'm not that unhappy.

Does anyone have the rainbow tattersall that just went up again for funding? Looks like there was a previous shipment back in May.
