So Spoo - did you get them?
The winning bidder has a feedback score of 5241 as does Spoos Ebay account balearic1 ( Feedback Score Of 5241) so my guess is that they are his.
Pocket-watch transformation. Really interesting!
4000 SEK equals to about 620$.

So Spoo, I did not bid on these, as much as I liked them, too, because 1. you called dibbs and that means something to me and 2. I am a true 8.5 and require snug fitting gloves. I have a hand condition that requires me to wear gloves pretty much the entire Fall and Winter into early Spring here so I have a rather large glove collection. I managed to get a pair of some Seraphin gloves recommended by RJ that really are amazing, but am always looking for more. So, as much as you wanted these, I assume to wear, if they turn out to be a small 9 and closer to an 8.5 and simply do not fit you I am happy to take them, literally, "off your hands." Otherwise, congrats on getting your long sought after alligator gloves.
Thanks bud - I appreciate you not bidding. Im very pleased with the $258 I paid. (Was $119 until 10 seconds left ) If they don't work out for some reason, I will let you know.
Just curious Spoo, what was your max bid on it?
I had a bid of $369 in and I was refreshing it ready to go up to $450 if need be. There is a pair of black alligator gloves at a Neiman Marcus that is marked at $1250 for the last 6 months and they refuse to put it lower than 40% off, even though its dusty as hell. So, anything that was better than that price would have worked.
Baller Congrats on your new gloves P.S: Picking up my first bespoke suit in about 3 hours
Thanks... all went OK? Pics!

Yes, and I also hate the way they named their business so oddly similar to mine.
