What are you getting?
Want to get a Kapital ring coat. Bought one on Grail ed, but let's just say it came not as advertised.

Yeah I saw you getting that one. What didn't work out? Which one are you looking at from Kapital?

The "gently used" jacket came with various stains, some wear spots, and a torn pocket which someone had repaired.

Since I live in the south, I don't want anything too heavy. Some of the wool once look nice but may be too warm and I dislike the tag on the hood. The Alpine model has a few too many pockets (especially on the back), just a little much for me.

This one is pretty cool but it is both warm and has the logo on the hood that I don't like.

So, just going with the plain ole Army ripstop in khaki (which is actually a green but I wish it was a shade darker) so I'm on the fence and the "gold" is actually a dark khaki that I do like.


and I think I will pick up this cardigan. I went back and forth on this or the longer one last night but I think the shorter one with the long sleeve will be easier to wear outside the house or as a layering piece.


So, maybe I'll get the Chino x Nylon Quilted Biver that I posted above but I can't decide if khaki or black. The khaki seems to be the darker green that I like and then I get the rip stop on gold but the black looks easier to dress up.

Decisions, decisions.

Maybe get a katsuragi cotton (brushed cotton, almost like moleskin)? Same color and fabric as these two:

That second one is awesome.

I can't find that (available). Do you have a link?
They should both be the same, its the katsuragi cotton version in khaki. Don't think they're available right now, but they'll probably show up again. Maybe someone in the Kapital thread can chime in?

More examples of the same:

Yeah, that's what I'm looking for (the short version). I wounder if the ripstop is the same shade and just crappy photos as they seem to call that green khaki.

No its not. It's a much lighter summer version.

Same color here:

Yeah, its not the same. Maybe I'll ask one of my old Air Force buddies who live in Japan to find me one.

I still like that cardigan though.

I have had that cardigan in my cart awaiting verification for almost 24 hours. Not sure who is working the carts at Zenmarket.

It can take a day or two. I made a recent purchase on Zenmarket that took more than one business day.
I just realized that if you add or subtract anything from the cart, it all has to be verified again. So my usual shopping style of adding everything to a cart (so I don't have to find it later) and then subtract and add other things over the next few days as I think about and find other stuff is very inefficient for both them and I as I assume that someone has to re-verify everything in the cart every time I do that.

quick question, is yahoo Auctions bidding system similar to eBay bidding system where people can bid last second? I was wondering how I can high my chance of winning a popular bid item?

Yes, just like that. They even have something called "delayed bid" which will only bid in the last few minutes of the auction.

Just don't be surprised when seller does not ship the item you won and relists it. In Japan winning bid is not binding for the seller. The offer to sell is not a contract in Japan.
