    idk, I've seen people flake over the tiniest of things or even nothing at all, even after promising to make the purchase. So I might be willing to accept a few dollars less if it seems more likely for the buyer to go through with it.

    I don't understand this sometimes either, and I'm pretty welcome to offers. I've tried to meet people halfway if I think their offer is a bit too steep, and this is usually like $10-15. And I won't ever hear back from them, leaving me somewhat perplexed. If you're already willing to pay 200+ on a pair of pants, what's another $10? Maybe bag a lunch tomorrow? [​IMG]

    It's often times not really about the money but instead feeling like you "won". That small amount makes the buyer feel like they're getting a concession. The seller is just happy to sell the damn thing at a "fair" price. Both come off thinking they "won" That's all bartering is about.

    Lol dunno what you're really looking for w/ this item, provided it's the one in your sig. You started it $30 off retail after a year of wear and 3 flaws from wear? I'm not arguing whether or not its current listed price is fair, but I know that when I see people's original asking prices start way too high, well, that's certainly going to affect whether or not I shoot a lower offer.

    Not the item in question. Thanks for playing.

    Yup, faux noir. I actually think the regular indigo looked a bit better fresh OTR, but I don't want any more faded blue jeans, I already have two nice pairs I don't like to wear because they're too light. Aeglus recommended going +1 size from the indigo and I think he's right. The indigo stretch much more, I fit into a 29 (couldn't quite get the top button done but I think if I really tried I could have) but the 30 in black fit the same. Nice jeans though, happy to get a semi-dressy/sexy cut of nice denim again.

    Nomad just replied me about shipping after I emailed them more than two weeks ago. Apparently shipping a pair of W+H Utility pants to Singapore's $85. Don't matter now since the pants are sold out in my size anyway. Rant over.
