    As an aside, if anyone wants the user ID of the dude who flaked, PM me. I won't fire shots in public, but I'll disclose in private, just so others can be aware of a potential flaker down the road.

    Speaking of SuFu transactions, I sold a guy a pair of CP safari boots a few weeks back, and he got them and guess he didn't like them so he was trying to resell them. He PMs me last night or this morning telling me that I sold him samples and he's hosed about it. Sounds fishy, but maybe Oki-Ni sold me samples.

    Nah, don't sweat it. Dude is probably full of shit. Like the time i sold a drkshdw jacket on ebay. I described the color as a black/charcoal with hints of blue/green and said it's hard to describe but overall looks dark and black to most. The guy got the jacket and claimed it was very green and that it smelled really bad both which were lies. Though i accepted a return on the item with him paying for shipping because i feared him taking advantage of how shitty ebay is to sellers and just getting a chargeback and just keeping the jacket and me getting fucked. I ended up selling it for more than he paid the next auction so i lucked out

    Yeah, I feel you. It happened to me a lot, but all the dudes I've completed transactions on here with have been really easy to deal with.

    This is kinda unrelated but I feel bad for you, asobu. You have nice things in your thread I would be all over it if sizes were smaller.

    i hate the "can you hold X until Friday?" i've done that twice and have gotten burned. turned away prospective buyers while waiting for money that never arrives. never again unless i've done business with people before, which i have an uncanny ability to remember that kind of stuff.

    Happened to me with a pretty popular poster here/sufu (he pm'd me on sufu). I held an item for about a week on a promise he'd "pay Friday," didn't bump my threads and told people who pm'd me they were sold because someone was taking them on Friday. Didn't pay and responded to my message Sunday or Monday saying he thinks they're too big... I think that's the worst kind of flaking, when you miss out on possible sales because you're holding something for someone who promises to pay and doesn't...

    Oh, I know it happens here. It just hasn't happened to me recently. I didn't want anyone who I've interacted with via PM the last couple of weeks to think I was referring to them. Except for the dude who told me he was sending payment for something in the next day and then stopped responding to messages, even though he's logged in every day since.
    Love this. I know you can see these PMs, prickless!
    Most of it is crap though. SuFu could be alot better. The marketplace has alot of people on it and I do find things I like.
    Too much of a hassle going through Supermarket. Used to check it periodically, but now it's maybe one in 100 threads have anything that interests me and one in twenty of those at reasonable prices, plus it moves too fast to get past the first page without having new threads/bumps shift everything around. Haven't checked SuFu Supermarket in months, and have no plans to do so (actually, I haven't checked SuFu at all in months [​IMG]) Edit: UPS tracking is completely useless. My trench arrives tomorrow

    Indeed. Maybe it's just me, but even without the pop-up notification, I find it almost impossible to visit this forum and not quickly notice I have a new message.

    Edit: Haha. Du (TM Jet) is in the Ask a Question thread now and talking about making cops.

    Where can I buy dress shirts? Like slim ones? For cheap? And in bulk?? Got these Brooks Brothers slim fit non-irons at $50 a pop, they look ridiculous with Jil Sander pants [​IMG] But at least decent under a suit [​IMG]

    Sadly those are the best option. I picked up several of those today for use as work beater shirts. I had to size way down to get a decent fit. btw I hate that damn Brooks Brothers downtown. They treat everyone like idiots and are always in a sour mood. They get feverish if you want to disassemble one of their shirts to try it on. It is really the only store in the city like that.

    I wish they had a better selection of these. There just aren't many styles available.
