    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Nice one. Enjoy it. I see a lot of Crombie and Magee here in the UK but it doesn't flip well. For personal use I bet there are a ton of nice pieces out there.

    That loro and stone island...om nom

    You just reminded me, I stumbled across my first Stone Island coat last week in the wild and they wanted £50 for it. Bastards knew what they had. It was the older label and I didn't think there was enough meat on the bones. Now I'm doubting myself. Was too big for me sadly else I'd have had it.

    Thanks for the info. I contacted Magee and they had no record of it because it dated back to 1977, long before they had computer records. 39 years and never worn out in the real world? WTF? I'm going to find a tailor to take the body in so it will be little more fitted. I only paid 20 bucks for it so I really can't lose

    To my friends who sell on EBAY GLOBAL SHIPPING.

    I shipped an item to EBAY GLOBAL SHIPPING CENTER about 3 weeks ago. I have tracking to show it was delivered 2 days later.

    Ebay put a hold on the payment I received to research that it was not received by the buyer. After 4 phone calls, I was still told it would take 2 weeks. THIS morning, I received another notice it will take ANOTHER 2 weeks to research and my funds are being held.


    Im glad this was only for a $30 sale. I wouldn't recommend EBAY Global Shipping to you and I am discontinuing it. I have 100% feedback with over 3,300 sales. It doesn't matter to them.

    This is BS becuase my assumption when they first started this is one it was received by their shipper....the seller was off the hook. Love how they change the rules.

    Can I get a legit check in these beat to fuck Prada lo-tops? I'm thinking real but would like confirmation before I clean them up. Don't worry they were cheap as chips.

    Look legit to me. I've seen that model in the same materials as well as patent leather. All the correct markings appear there from first glance.

    Thanks for confirming it for me. Now for the clean up operation! There's something massively satisfying about giving a beat up pair of shoes a new lease of life. Strangely therapeutic.

    I agree, they look legit. I have a pair not too unlike this, except mine are leather.

    The pair I have, when you pull out the insole insert it says PRADA underneath, also you could probably look up the code inside to see if it matches any. But ya so far from what I see, those look good

    Quick estate sale lunch hit. Showed up an eternity (2 hours) after the start time so didn't have my hopes up but surprisingly came away with a couple pieces. Shame, the guy had some sick custom sport coats but wasn't my size.

    A whopping $5 ppu. Sorry for the trunk pics
