    Opticalman is a paradox. On one hand he's sort of being helpful (although since he keeps saying the same brands who knows how helpful he really is) but on the other he's spamming his site's link left and right while at the same time bumping decomposing threads. [​IMG]

    hahaha.



    I think I could get into geller but have too little first hand experience. The shirt I have is nice though, love the soft fabric.

    Nice


    Cop-blocking is the main reason I'm sometimes reluctant to post things on the sales alert thread. "Man, there was only one size medium left, and I totally got cop blocked!"

    So is MA+, Raf, whatever. I think that it's because kids who can't afford the stuff (whatever the brand) essentially treat purchases as temporary.

    This is one time where I feel "kop" would actually be the preferred spelling.

    I've seen so many ninja and other labels in the classifieds on sufu and sz (with the few instances I've looked) that it's mind blowing. If they truely liked these pieces they wouldn't let them go which only means one thing and that is they're mostly due to forum hype. Everyone will get excited over something then realizing it was a lamentable pickup they will hype it up even more to try and unload it.

    Sufu classifies are huge, there is a ton of Dior, HL, Raf, rick owens (drkshdw). I really don't see that much Geller, definitely a lot more Raf Simons (unsurprising considering how bad a lot of it is) plus the few pieces that are up are like 46's. Sufu is still one of the better marketplaces though, SZ is no man's land for anyone bigger than 5'9 and 160lbs. Hype is a vicious beast, personally I cannot afford the insta-kop attitude, so I try to think shit out long and hard before I actually pull the trigger.

    i actually have hadf to part with shit i love to make some cash, and it sucks and all, but certain labels seem to just always wind up in the regrettable purchases bin.

    ^there are always exceptions of course

    Oxnard- Agreed, I almost never instakop and I wasn't saying geller and others are hype just that the line in general and select pieces do get super hyped. There are wonderful poell pieces I'd love to have for instance but I think people who generally do not know what they are doing hastily cop like you said without any calculations.

    I don't think I'd ever buy a sweater/knit online over $60. I definitely would have to feel it in person. Everything else I'd be fine with. Just to [​IMG] posters with good taste in jackets shirts etc. sometimes put up footwear that has me thinking WTF? I must be pretty damn picky, but I'm having a hard time finding attractive boots that aren't $5 bills+ Oh yeah I'm basically a member of SuFu and SZ to use their B&S. Eventually I'll find something great after sifting through 3 pages of $1000 black shirts held together with bondage tape. SuFu is just to annoying to post alot in.

    You also see ninja brands on the classifieds a lot because people buy them second hand or on sale because they're getting a good deal, even if the size isn't correct. Then when they realize it doesn't look good to wear ill-fitting clothing, they sell it again.
