I wrote and deleted one reply. B/c this is floating twds the top of the thread, I'll try again. 1) I posted this stuff mainly b/c I thought that folks would enjoy the briefcase p0rn, not b/c I thought it would really boost sales. This stuff is out of reach for most, even on this board (I know that it is for me) 2) Shitting on B&S threads is generally discouraged, IIRC. If you're going to do so, please don't pretend like you aren't. You clearly do mean to imply any and every negative thing you can about my friend and classmate. 3) I gave full disclosure b/c it is the right thing to do, not b/c I hoped to spur a discussion of MBAs or the program that I attend. Jinda, your use of the MBA as a club to beat the seller with is pointless. I have not monitored his correspondence, but Ebay is a rough place and ALL CAPS ARE SOMETIMES USED. 4) All this said, I do think that every seller needs to live or die by their reputation, which needs to be contested on eBay. That said, I've seen the cases in the flesh and they sure look legit to me. I have not seen every article of clothing up there, but everything I have seen from the seller is real. I hesitated to post the link in the first place b/c I knew that the iSleuths on the board love to talk trash. I had just enjoyed looking at some of this stuff the other day and thought that others might also get a kick out of it. I was happy that the first page or so basically involved ogling the merchandise, which was the thread's primary intent (I purposely put it in B&S so as not to clog the main boards with it). One more note: I have no personal financial interest in any of this, and only hope that I have not inadvertently hurt my friend's business.
