    A bunch of New & Lingwood wallets

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Brown-Tan-New-Li...#ht_805wt_1141


    Does anyone know what the quality of these is like? My guess is that with a retail of around $60 to begin with, N&L are licensing their name....

    Yes - they're of totally average construction and quality, and probably of little interest for the average SF member. If it didn't have the N&L label you'd not stop for a second look.

    Thanks--I figured as much, especially given that they're being retailed through the House of Fraser! [​IMG]

    I've always wondered about these N&L items that you see on eBay for next to nothing.

    Such as the shirts for £19.99 BNWT.

    What's the deal here? They're simply licensing out the name? All those items look really shoddy and nothing like you'd expect from N&L.

    Agreed, I think they are awful but then again, for that price it's better than something from tj max

    Looks more like a side deal was struck to avoid Ebay fees.

    +1 seems the most likely answer, doesn't it.
