    This is a first for me. I had hoped to get a higher price for these boots, but I'm not gonna do it like this.

    Plus one. I'd likely preemptively block them for stratospheric levels of douchebaggery.

    Agreed. Not that I think @Tyrone MacStiophain was even entertaining the offer, but it's just good to remember that details should never be given out.

    Imagine if you bought something at a shop and the clerk gave out your information to the next customer in line simply because they asked.

    Again, I don't think @Tyrone MacStiophain was even considering it, just a reminder.

    In situations like this, I offer to contact the bidder and say someone is interested, and if youd like to sell them, etc, let me know and I can pass on his user ID. But I would never without the other guys permish.

    I was just planning to block and ignore, but per @SpooPoker's example, I contacted the buyer to let him know I'd be willing to put him in touch with Johnnie Come Lately, along with all the warnings against transacting outside eBay. The boots are already on their way to the rightful winner.

    My understanding is that all Coogi tags have five different colors.

    I thought the o on yours was yellow. Definitely looks wrong.

    Authenticity check on this? Actually hoping it's fake because it smells like ass.

    Cheers (thank God)! I went to check for the tag and somehow the smell got worse overnight (even after I sprayed with vinegar). Not even going to try and return it for the 8 dollars or so it smells so bad.
