This thread used to be a place where people found great great things and wore them with pride or passed them at cost as favours - you might have noticed or not but I'm doing that myself with a Caruso jacket.
Nowadays it's just a joke because it reeks of niggardly greed.
"Shite jacket by some awful maker - AVAILABLE"
A true true joke.
It's still a place where people brag about their finds, and it's gotten so you have to say whether it's available or not so you don't get a hundred PMs inquiring on stuff you plan to keep.
But there's also some of what you say going on.
