    Was it not all the way up yesterday?

    Would you consider it semi-up?

    I think peir wu started doing only direct sales and is no longer carried by stockists, but I'm probably wrong about that.

    i think you should drastically reduce the price, it seems pretty worn as their seems to be fading on various areas of the carpet print

    Eh, dude obviously just really likes the jacket. Can't really blame him for trying (repeatedly)

    if he liked it that much, he should fucking pay 2k or at least offer somewhere near that. if he had to complain about "areas of wear", he doesn't want it that much.

    You pretty much know what you're getting into when you put something on Groiled, i.e. lowballs, dumb requests

    Yeah I know, normally I wouldn't care, but I only shared it because of this:

    I just thought it was an odd thought process: see a jacket that hasn't had a change in the listing for 8 months, not read the listing at all and make a comment on lowering the price because of two levels of perceived faults (ignoring the photos and not realizing it was a rug in the first place, and not reading the part that explains that the wear patterns on the rug were strategically placed on the jacket) and offer 40% of the asking price. Then make a formal offer for $2000. Then make an informal offer for $1500 Canadian? All within the span of a few hours.

    I mean, if you want someone to sell you a high-value item and trust that you aren't going to fuck them over, it's not really the best way to go about it.

    doubt he would've followed through with the 2k offer tho.

    I left a negative feedback for a seller that failed to mention the item had been altered. A couple days later the feedback with comments disappeared and was replaced with a generic 5/5 feedback. Wonder if this is a special feature for power sellers.

    I have had very pleasant experience with Gr. Some of my high price items was sold quickly with reasonable offers on Gr. TOJ leather, Sandro leather, BBJ sashiko, SS cardigan... ; also got some nice stuffs for much cheaper than retail.

    Overall, positive for sure. The 'hate' part of it is the crazy lowballs and flaky buyers. Eventually though, things sell.

    It looks retarded especially, when there's no chance of rain within the next week, nor have their been in the last week.

    It must also give some odd tan lines.

    Grailed ain't too bad. I always sold shit on there. Low ball offers only come when you have higher ticket items. Things selling 250 and under usually ain't as bad on the low balls.

    Need some recommendations for shopping in Washington, DC. Would like a place to try on Geller or Ervell, or a Bloomingdales that has SF brands on sale? So far I have -
