    @Jompso there is a business lesson to be learned here. There are people who are into everything under the sun. There are so many companies that I look at it in my day job that make no sense to me as a customer, but there is a market for them. All you need to do is look at completed listings on eBay to confirm that exotic skins sell. These aficionados very well may be "weirdos," but most of society would consider us "weirdos" for driving all around our cities on a daily basis spending untold hours rifling through 99.5% old, shitty clothing, interacting with the clientele at thrift shops, looking for treasure. I know my wife and my friends do.

    $220 tops. 1. I think Mister Freedom dug a little deep in the vintage vault when he pulled out that inspiration, I think the styling might dampen the market a little bit, yet there's still a strong enough market out there for this 2. More significantly, it's been worn for a decent amount of time by someone else and it has also been soaked. The fact it has touched water by the hands of a stranger and the fact that its been worn long enough that the creases of a stranger with a different body than yourself have set and now your wear marks are gonna be little weird really takes it down. 3. It doesn't say made in Japan. I know Mister Freedom is made in the US but with a Sugar Cane collab you'd expect a rare Japan stamp to mark the tag but you don't have one.

    Edit: Did not see that it is actual Sugar Cane and not the brand, so the US stamp is appropriate. That being said though, nothing changes.

    I actually didn't buy it. Broken zipper killed it for me. If it was a s/m instead of a XL, I would have grabbed it.

    It's a suitcase from the 20's. Condition is pretty good except one of the straps is cracked and coming off. Still haven't figured out what to do about that. I'm not sure if that kind of damage can be restored.

    Brag worthy?
    THE MOST PRISTINE pair of these I have ever seen/you will ever see.
    I wish I had held onto these, forever.
    Now, I cannot justify the $1800 I sold them for. [​IMG]

    Damn, dude goes in hard on @troika ... what's worse, wearing a shitty fit and posting a pic or taking the many hours trolling the endless forums on this site looking for the shitty fits to clown on... one will never know

    @troika was on there? Didn't notice.. or maybe I just don't know what he really looks like. That person goes pretty hard on @Takai though. -_-
