    New game... Guess the actual brand from keyword spamming listings.

    Surprisingly, they're 3Sixteen. When I first encountered the listing, the item specifics listed them as APCs. No details in the listing, other than to say they are 32 with a 31" inseam and a "slim skinny" fit, though they sure look like straight fit in the pics.

    Awesome find that I will be posting on ebay shortly. Out it a vintage jacket that has some wear and tear literally on the liner. With it being a vintage piece would it be advised to repair or sell in original condition?

    Te best part is the original tags!

    Sold listings show between 150 and 300 for the jacket without original tags. What price point would you start this at?

    I purposely start it low to draw views to other listings, but rarely does something sell that low. I guess there's so much HF out there, stuff slips through the cracks.

    So I sold two borelli shirts to the same guy. But he didn't give me a chance to combine shipping and paid the shipping seperately on both ( wot).

    Should I just ship them both seperately since he paid for it like that?

    I'd ship together and give him a small refund.

    That's what I would do. And since you're shipping from Canada it's probably not an insignificant chunk of change either. I'm sure dude will be stoked.

    I do too. Was contemplating a large order from china but ended up getting enough from local stores and a bit less than $1 per pair.

    Everytime I did that people were REALLY happy, they'll give you glowing feedbacks, and... potential return clients too :)

    Just picked up 5 pairs of these. Any tips/suggestions on listing? I've not dealt much with flipping braces before. This is prob the nicest/most rare one. The other 4 seems to be more standard, but I don't know...any help is much appreciated.

    Got my first return in a couple of months today.

    "Color didn't match photos". Popped up my ipad showing the live ebay photo and laid the jacket in front under the photo lights.

    Anyone who buys online should know that coloring often will be slightly different than in real life.
    If he opened a snad on you he should be black listed for unreasonableness.
