    I think that’s because the grilled guy created an account here (and other places) to message others and advertise/ lure people away from b&s.

    Anyway, when I check pms on Grailed, I keep getting pop-up messages about not completing transactions off-site, though there’s nothing to indicate that. (Message literally says, “If that’s a 21 p2p, I’ll take it!”). Surely a human goes over things before banning people, right?

    You guys remember the "Burberry Sport Coat" search issue from a couple weeks ago....

    Still ongoing....with 32 results.

    But try "Sport Coat Burberry" ....2182 results.

    Aren't we so, so glad we're "partnered" with such a fine organization?

    Same results here with the burberry searches.

    But when I added a fourth search term ("40R" in this case), the results were the same whether 'burberry' was first or last.

    I think the reason for that is structured fields, aka item specifics. When I list a Burb piece, it autocompletes to Burberry's for me. I have to knock off the "'S" unless its vintage. I bet they have scripts to pull from that field only. Look at the fields in the ones that come up with low results, I bet thats it.

    Is there any reason not to use their global ship program? Someone would like to purchase but from Japan. I have not personally ever shipped outside of the US mainland. Any advice?

    Odd. I always have to add the S if needed.

    If you are going to ship internationally, Japan is a good place to ship. Japan has a very solid postal system. Personally, I despise the GSP.

    Thanks for the reply. Any particular reason? I am not very familiar with it at all.
