Yeah the 5Zip is also very nice



Thanks guys, suede it is

I've wanted a 5 zip for years but I'm hesitant because of the varying leather quality/cut of the jacket

I've been looking for a nice leather leather one that I like for so long that I've had to hunt down the only Wool 5Zip I've seen. That tobacco suede 5Zip is up there on my purchase list as well, I just have to ask myself if I REALLY love it since its 3k and I get maybe a week max to wear it during the year

My favorite 5Zip at the moment

When e-mailing stores or sellers with questions about a specific item, is it common courtesy to reply after you are given the answer to tell them whether or not you are interested? I thank them in the first e-mail.

 

Had someone on the site that shall not be named spam me with "so?" after every question I asked, wanted to tell him to fuck off but also wanted to make sure I haven't been doing it wrong all this time.

 

Which reminds me, my favorite kind of offer is when someone lowballs you then adds "paypal ready!" As if even though they are lowballers, they are the honest kind who follow through, and not the other kind who leave you hanging after the lowball.

 

Second favorite is when someone offers $150 on a $200 item, then when you click on their account, it shows "Location: Asia." I just imagine them playing it off like, oops forgot shipping costs money, sorry bro.

 

Lastly, hope you don't mind but I thought this was hilarious, gonna use that line from now on. SFer who probably got lowballed one too many times:

I'm not sure that there is a rule on this. 

 

I kind of appreciate the "paypal ready" thing though, I can't count how many times someone pitched a best offer and didn't pay afterwards, or just asked to cancel the transaction after bidding.

Counterpoint - I can't count the number of times I've accepted an offer that came accompanied by ye olde "Paypal ready" and then never heard from the dude again. I don't really get excited about accepted offers anymore. Hell, given the stories I hear about scammers I don't even get excited about sales where the dude actually pays until 90 days after the transaction when they can't open a Paypal case anymore.

Lol. Dude should have the measurements there in the first place. If you can't be bothered to spend 5 minutes typing out measurements for what is a presumably hundreds of dollars... What are you doing. If someone asks me a question I'll answer it and usually it was something I overlooked so I'll update the post with that info. I always out no international shipping yet there's always tons of Canadians who put up low ball offers any ways.

He's asking for pictures though, not just the numbers.

post #6580 of 13859
I have sold a few items on Grilled where the person was out of the US (and their profile was blank, and they made no mention of it in our negotiations). I just asked them to please add another PayPal payment with $XX for the shipping. If they were not OK with that, I simply refund their payment. Pretty simple. Most everyone has been amicable and has sent the additional money.
post #6581 of 13859
Same difference. Not any more taxing and probably even quicker.
post #6582 of 13859

To be fair he did have measurements listed but I almost always ask for pictures to confirm cuz I don't trust anyone with a tape measure.

post #6583 of 13859

If I send a offer to someone that I'd could likely be taken as a lowball, I just say something like, "Would you consider XX? Not trying to lowball you, just trying to work within a budget. For what its worth, I'm a regular member/ top rated member/ etc. who'd pay immediately. Thanks for considering."

 

 At this point in the process, the seller has no compulsion to sell for anything lower that what he's asking for. Being nice is sometimes the only leverage you have.
