It's a tough read for sure.
Why on earth is the BIN the same as the starting bid? Why not just do BIN?
because there are people who might be silly enough to do the starting bid...
FRATELLI BORGIOLI SUEDE ANKLE BOOTS 10
If this was a size 9 my 6 month search would have been over
I know, those are nice. Wish they were 12/13
Seller calls them a US 10 but I bet they're an EU 10 - almost 13" long.
Not even an EU 10. An ITALIAN 10. Probably 1 1/2 sizes up to US size... 11 1/2.
That makes sense - I have an old pair of Costume National boots that are in Italian 8 and they fit US 9.5
An interesting end to two auctions I was watching... same seller
BNIB w/ trees Lobb Becketts
BNIB w/ trees Lobb Garnier
Both black both Prestige line. 8000 vs 7000 lasts
Garnier's ended an hour and a half later almost $200 more. I assume it was more due to the timing of the auctions as opposed to the difference in shoes?
In days gone by you could only achieve international visibility by listing an auction- so most people would list a BIN with auction starting price a penny cheaper.
Not sure if that rule still applies.
this is correct. they are a US 11.5
C&J Chukkas decent bin:
No mystery here. Bidder A***k lost the first auction with a high bid of $720. 90 minutes later, he was more determined (and willing to pay more) to win the other (last) pair of Lobbs. He was much more aggressive and went up to $900 this time. AND... LOST once again. To a totally different buyer.
Tough luck for this fella. It feels like crap to come in 2nd 2 times in a row. If only...
