    Do you know where the ones not marked "Made in China" were made? I'm not a general basher of Chinese-produced goods, but I've had bad luck with belts, so I'm hesitant.

    Whats a "ruby" shirt? the polo I just posted?


    mostly Italy. But even the ones made in China are of equal quality. If none were marked with any country of origin, I would guess Italy for them all.

    I see. On reflection, my entire studly mother of pearl stud set (see what I did there?) is probably worth less than just one of those Kiton MoP buttons so it was probably a dumb question from the jump.

    Meanwhile, not being experienced in feng shebay, why would someone bid against themselves over this shirt as "s***o" did earlier today? For that matter, why would anyone bid until the final second of an auction using their sniper app?

    ^ :laugh:

    Ive done this before, but it does not affect the bid. Say you bid $100, but an hour later want to be sure you win and put in $150. Youll see an outbid notice in the history, but the price does not go up.

    Stitchy, it looks like it wasn't meant to be. Why don't these dumb-ass shoemakers all use a last based on my feet? :cloud:

    The way eBay works is, you put in your bid for the highest price you would pay for an item. Then eBay auto-bids up to that amount for you.

    Say the current bid on a tie is $50. I put in my auto-bid max amount at $200. If somebody else then bids $51, eBay will automatically override their bid with a bid of $52 from me. If you look in the log, it'll say my name for $50 and then my name for $52 right after it. So I'm not bidding against myself, it's just registering that my bid is still the highest and I've staved off a counteroffer attempt.

    The auto-bidding system also prevents sniping. If my auto-bid max is $200, and the guy sniper bids $150 at the very last second, I still win. It's impossible to know what other people's max bids are, so there's no guarantee of winning with a last-second sniper bid unless the sniper bid is exorbitantly high.

    Sniping was a lot of fun back in the day. But yeah, the autobid is for the best.
