    Talking about crocodile/gator belts :

    e-thrift opportunity or just fucked-up belt?

    seller says - roughly translated - that "2 pieces of croc are SLIGHTLY used". With my experience with french sellers it could mean anything from slightly used to completely fucked ([​IMG]). 50 EUR.

    Not something you find everyday.
    Morning dress for Ascot, and a good fit on me, so I had to buy it, even though I'll have few opportunities to ever wear it.

    Moss Bros, and probably an ex-rental suit, but in superb condition.

    It looks like the knife flattened her left breast.

    Not the best haul, but grabbed a YSL Tuxedo Jacket, Armani Le Collezioni White Dress Shirt, Boss Black Label Dress shirt, Jack Lipson dress shirt, Brooks Brothers dress shirt, and a bunch of nice polos yesterday, mostly at Amvets.

    Anyone interested in a Trench Coat with fur lining and fur collar. I don't mean shearling or fake fur, I mean FUR. I saw it an estate sale yesterday. It appeared to be a very nice vintage Trench Coat. But, I could not tell the brand. The only label is where you would usually see the brand label. It says Lee's Fur For Men. It had all the cool trench coat details and had large horn (or horn like) buttons. The fur was actually well done. I did not find a size and didn't have time to measure. But, if I had to guess it would be a 42-44. It was pretty pricey, but I get the feeling I could talk them down especially on the last day.

    Pm if interested.

    I'm not sure about sizing, but @ReubenR several of these items are probably calling your name.

    There was a woman last year that was selling 8 pair of men's shoes. 6 of them were alligator and they were really top brands. She had a BIN or Best Offer. So, I offered her a reasonable offer given her asking price and she rejected and replied with some nasty comment. The more I thought about it the more I realized, I should buy them even at her price. So, I did. I did the Buy it now and paid immeadiately. Nothing happens for a couple days and I get a message that she is not selling them to me. She decided it was too cheap. She offered to send me two pair for what I paid. And she actually listed all individual pairs in new listings. Obviously I went back and forth and she never once said she put in the wrong price. She just wasn't going to sell them to me for that price. I contacted ebay and they said they couldn't make her sell. They wouldn't do anything about it.
