Wait, what's the implicit agreement for trades? I just realized (a) I've listed something in B&S I traded for, but no longer fits, and (b) have at least three traded-for items that obviously fell victim to some very creative or hopeful measuring. facepalm.gif

I mean, I'm pretty sure I know whatThe Ethicist Randy Cohen would say (If it's yours, it's yours, screw it...) but why pass up a chance for that li'l pot-stirrer guy? smile.gif

Soooo, do any Pendleton-heads (if such a thing exists) have any thoughts on this?  I'm keeping it for myself and it feels good enough quality to keep me happy, but inquiring minds must know.  I also paid a lot for it (this place marked up leather jackets), so I care fractionally more than I otherwise would I guess.

I was really excited to find this, even before I saw the brand.  I've been looking for a motorcycle/heavy leather jacket for some time now...the fact that it's Pendleton was just the icing on the cake. BUT, seeing "made in China" label and some Chinese instructions on the reverse side of the materials tag got me a bit concerned.  But everything else seemed fine.  The liner seems very "Pendleton-esque", the metal-wear seemed pretty solid, and the leather itself seems to be great quality and very heavy duty.  Thoughts?

If it is from me, simply send me a courtesy note.

Lol I get you on B, and I mean on A, if you've worn something for a while and it just stops fitting I think you've gotten the use that the original forum member intended.Most of us have been here long enough to know whos flipping stuff and not.

Why that guy posted a private PM that made him look worst is beyond me, but I'm pretty sure it's a judgement thing. .

Also, for you guys that eBay, later tonight I'll have those things you all can have for free+shipping. Should fetch some of you guys some decent bills (20-30 a piece) and I've got no real time to deal with them.

Ummm, how's that different from my case? I've worn something for awhile and now I am cleaning my closet... How's that make me a flipper?

I consider myself a Pendleton head and I ride motorcycles, but I wouldn't be much interested in that jacket unless it south of ten bucks. The China part is a drag. I can't get my head around Pendleton and leather (or cotton Pendleton anything, for that matter). Doesn't seem very Pendleton nor very motorcycle--a 'tweener, if you will.

Just throwing my 2 cents out there as I can

 

1) Its pretty crappy to post private messages unless there is something really  really wrong like a stolen teddy bear sweater. Better to just reference a conversation without calling out someone by name FYI

 

2) If you thrift/consignment shop/marshalls, etc something and want to sell it for a HUGE profit go for it. If you want to make that huge profit on ebay or styleforum go for it, no ones stopping you. Thats called capitalism and some people will get butt hurt that you are selling your $6 thrifted shirt for $70 but either a) its a good deal and they will buy it as they cant get it for less then $70 anywhere else, b) they will not buy it or c) they will offer you a lower price they feel is fair. Pretty simple.

 

3) If you buy something from a fellow thrift thread member at a MUCH LOWER price then that member could have gotten on ebay or the B&S as he is doing you a favor, that is pretty crappy to then go and resell it for more. BUT IMO (and I might get lambasted for this) if you pay what someone is asking on the B&S forum classified or ebay where anyone (not thrifters, or "friends of this thread" but people anywhere even not members of this forum) can buy it then you can go and resell it for any price you would like, as if you dont buy it, someone else is going to if the deal is that good. Again this is called capitalism. The idea of flipping a super great deal from a fellow thread member is just wrong. You should offer it back up to the community for what you paid.

 

PS - DM7 stop crying. This is the Internet.

Thanks, let's stop it at that. I guess you guys are reading this all wrong. I do not buy on this thread with the mindset to flip, if that was my intention I would have bought the Isaia shirt from 46n2 and post it on ebay next week.

If I were you and I ended up reselling something I didn't want anymore, then I would split the profit 50/50 with the person who sold it to me for cheap.

That sounds fair. Hold on! if intentionally post something on this thread for sell, wouldn't that considered as SPAM? I would have to post it in B&S, right? just trying to figure out how this works

Does anyone know anything about women's shoes?  Picked these up, and I'm not sure if they are real or fake.  Quality seems nice, but the current Prada shoes label says "Prada Milano", not "Prada Made in Italy".  Anyone know?

Also picked up this beast for $6 (98.6% off retail), as seen here http://www.rugby.com/shop/item.aspx?productId=11884479&categoryId=11373427&cp=3138868.  This is made by Corneliani, right?  Fits me well, so unavailable.

Prada Milano and Prada Made in Italy are two different lines. Just like Versace Classic, Versace Jeans Couture, Versace Sport, etc... Another example is Armani - Collezioni, Giorgio Armani, Armani Exchange, etc...

 

I have seen shoes that say Prada Made in Italy (on 2 lines, just like on the shoes you bought) and I've also seen Prada Milano.  The best way I have found to tell apart fake and genuine is to observe knit patters, feel the material, bend the shoe to see if it makes any weird sounds, lightly bang the heal against cement to see how sturdy the heal is, etc... It's usually the little things that give it away.
