    Weird. Are they in the business to raise money for themselves/charity, or shoe the less fortunate. If the latter, they should give them to a homeless shelter, not sell them.

    JBirdwatcher all day very small app that runs in the background, no memory usage just chills in the toolbar. you enter item number and snipe and you close and forget about it...then a couple days later you get a totally awesome surprise... don't use website operated ones based off server storage or whatever, they are way to prone to errors, theyll just not post your bid sometimes even though you did nothing wrong. If you want to snipe shit you want a program designed to store and maintain a database, detailed and precise and most importnatly, dependent solely on how well designed and operable it is. Simplicity and dependability. Jbirdwatcher. Your welcome.

    This just looks like a waist of money, whether it's 5 bucks or 40.... it's obviously older to start and beinga suit made of 8 percent cashmere, that means the fabric is probably gonna be super fragile, itll have soft spots, potential wear holes, and there's no pants because id bet my car the guys ass fell out them so he didn't donate them. I would proceed and not look back. and totally forget cashmere content because thsi situation it actually totally makes this thing more worthless than it already is.

    I fucked up big time! Either one "pair" was odd shoes, or I accidently took one shoe of each from two pairs....guess I have to go back, hopefully noone does the same mistake O_O

    Here are some
    Shitty pictures

    Wes, no, you could get that. We know this. But some average joe will not be able to market that thing in a way to even scratch 100....I give a guy with basic set of knowledge and selling ability 50 bucks flat tops....I just don't see where the demand lies in that...you have the abilty to create demand for DB Stafford jackets, but to be frank, those two garments are most likely extremely over treated/dry cleaned, and the fabrics in shitty fucking condition and the pants weren't forgotton, they obviously wore through so the overall integrity is in question...maybe someone dumb can be had, and you could probably merchandise the thing in a way that makes those two things look and sound like they should be wroth 150...nobody else, you god the gift of gab sir, we are all just witnesses

    Also are those teaser pics for whats about to go live? cuz that 15 mil with that rust pane looks awfully sexy...or is that stuff you just picked up?

    Sounds a bit socialist, no? Sweden isn't known at all for that! :happy:

    Working on getting all of the other PMs for the gift exchange answered! Don't worry though, if you've sent me a PM, I'm getting you on the list.

    Still lots of time, we've got 30+ members involved thus far.

    I've researched so much and I still can't tell the difference between an odd coat and a sport coat unless it is blatantly obvious [​IMG]

    Is that Burberry a sport coat Wes or Orphan? I'd guess orphan but I have no idea
