BOSS never shows drop.  The name on the label will usually tell you whether it's a SC or Suit. PM me with the labels I'll tell you what they are.

I'm a bit peeved as the description didn't say shit about this. Is it fading, or just dirt? 

Are these from dickiebowmemorabilia by any chance? He's so light on details and pics are so poor it's a total lottery.

I'm afraid so, fucker.

 

The main image was alright, slight wear on the blade is fine. But the dick pincher didn't say the silk was ballsed up. Buddahman and I both bought ties from him, I hope his one came out alright!

Yeah I've bought loads from him, half good and half shite. But so cheap I can never be bothered returning! He's a proper arse-candle.

Frustrating since I'm pricing myself out of my own market.

Maybe buy a couple cheap pieces of junk with the good item, to throw them off?

Smart thing I should do! When I buy something that's a sort of nothing-brand, I do make a big deal of it. Oh, and the old lady that volunteers trots something out every time and says "Oh, Hr. HansderHund, this would look great!" I buy one of her suggestions every couple of weeks and then redonate it a couple of months later.

I don't read Chinese but I messed around with Google Translate for a bit and came out with hemp or (more likely) linen / flax. Cannabis and leprosy were apparently also strong contenders so take this with a grain of salt...

Not my auction but seems like a good deal for someone, a couple recent dildos and the older one looks to be a wool or cashmere herringbone blend. I love me some wool blend dildos nod[1].gif

Thanks, that makes sense... That was the one fabric I didn't think of looking for. :cheers:

That Couture one would flip for 30 easy, and the navy wool, very least 25, I nearly said fuck it why not, take those remainding 6 and turn them into the very least 120 of pure profit, but I'm drowning in ties, but far more significantly, any seller who wants 17 dollars to ship 8 ties sucks and gets no business on principle.

A few more things from a short getaway yesterday. It's hard to take decent pictures of giant scarves.
