    ^No, actually the only pictures uploaded were of his own personal pair. He's actually wearing them in the pictures. They looked new to me...and since he didn't state any conditon or damage to them, I thought they were brand new. The price of $95 seems like a lot for a pair of shoes I had to take a toothbrush too and bleach the laces(which didn't help). I see other german army trainers gong for much less. There are two new listings or these exact shoes...brand new and they are asking $95 shipped from Australia & Germany. Another listing has a used pair going for $40. I don't mind the worn in look, but I was looking forward to breaking them in myself...and thought in the mean time I could get away with wearng them semi-dressed up w/ a peacoat. They're too banged up for that. I've exchanged messages back & forth with the seller and he keeps telling me they look way better worn in and ignores my hints on a refund. I'm not asking to return them...I just think a $20 refund is more than fair for both parties. edit: And the fact he had 5 different sizes listed, also led me to believe they were brand new
    link to thread? did he in fact advertise them as deadstock?

    Can anyone ID this jumpsuit or recommend something similar? I like the slim fit and the pockets.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    Found a trench coat that was exactly what what I have been looking for in terms of style and fit at Zara, yesterday. I never shop at the store because I'm not a big fan of their fits or typical quality, but I couldn't pass this item up. The issue I have is that apparently it provides very little, if any, level of water resistance. I tested it when I got home. For the price I paid, I didn't think I would get GOTEX level water proofing, but being that it is a trench coat I would expect it to be able to provide some basic water resistance. Since the price was good and I like everything else about it I am considering ways to add some water proofing. A spray or even perhaps a wax. Anyone have experience or advice with this? I think I may return it if it's a lost cause. [​IMG]

    Adidas GATs Lows [​IMG]
    $20 via paypal to the 1st person who can find me somewhere i can buy these online, in a size US11.5 or US11 (UK 11 or UK10.5), new, that ships to Ireland. They are Adidas Originals A.039 Resplit Lo in black to help you get started on google. Gogogogogogogo. EDIT: Someone found them for me in the non-baller sneaker thread.

    The stuff you use in the washing machine is infinitely superior to the stuff you spray on.

    He was saying it didn't list a description.

    I'm beasting over an Undercover coat and wonder if I should go with size 3/III or 4/IV !?
    I'm usually a EU48 or a small EU50 ( if I want to wear a thick sweater under it ) in most coats. 18" shoulder width and 20.5" chest width are pretty much ideal for me...

    Any opinions ?

    did he in fact advertise them as deadstock?


    Here's a link to the thread...and yes he did state them as deadstock. I thought that meant brand new, not to be produced ever again. Seems the true defintion just means "no longer in production". Whatever the guy keeps ignoring my hints on a partial refund. Check out the listng...was I reaching that much by assuming they were new?

    Edit the first post and change the title.

    Nikwax is pretty good and cheap, iirc.
