    Ohhhhh. I'd be interested if those don't work out for you.

    TheWGP - I might be interested in an even trade. I'll take a look at some green mixers and see if I like the color.

    Man...you hail from a world of "judging shit" that I can't even begin to comprehend. That looks like ballin' ass gear to n00b eyes like my own.

    (this can easily be misconstrued as sarcasm, but it's legitimate praise...I've seen you and your ilk's calls on other high-end gear play out as correct time and again, so I truly believe there's a science to this that my feeble-slash-Nautica-infested-mind simply don't comprehend. It's cool shit, basically.)

    Here are the JL Powell boots I picked up. I have them on B&S, but always open for trades.

    Well, Chet has me second guessing myself with those other pics, but Ill reserve final call until I see better pics, including the rolled edges, label, and trademark in the corner.

    Communicating about payment methods
    Sellers need to say in their listing specifically which payment methods they accept and only offer payment methods approved by eBay. Sellers aren't allowed to:
    • Ask buyers to contact them for additional payment methods
    • Offer a payment method to some buyers and not to others
    • Discourage buyers from using any payment method the seller specified in the listing
    • Ask buyers to pay using a method not mentioned in the listing.
    This applies to all transaction-related correspondence between a seller and buyer as well as the listings.
    Violation consequences
    Make sure your listing follows our guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and your buying and selling privileges could be restricted.

    In your thrift store 10 minutes ago
    Paypal sucks. A necessary evil of online life. I've hated them since they were X.com, before they were paypal, before eBay swallowed them up. There was, like, a 3-day span in their early history when it cost $0.35 per transaction and they didn't suck. Since then, suck.

    Today: Gucci loafers (size 45D) and a yellow with purple houndstooth Lorenzini flannel-ish shirt with the MOP buttons.

    I think the shoes are a tad big for my f-i-l (he's got dibs, will see if the glass slipper fits friday evening) and if so -- they're up for swap. Looking for cufflinks, linen jacket for summer (40R), or any interesting 9D shoes you thrifted if true apples-to-apples is a concern. If you're not a tire-kicker, I am happy to take much better photos (just had the blackberry handy here).

    The Tintin tie kicked ass. My son (obsessing over reading all the books this season) would go psycho with joy if I brought home something like that.

    I feel less n00b now. I saw those hand-rolled edges and [​IMG]'d.





    Still, cred. It takes a man to admit when he's wrong. [​IMG]

    What I passed:

    A Brioni red sportcoat, almost in my size, but a little bit too small, one small hole on the shoulder, and not cheap.
    A pair of NTW Alexander McQueen black laceups in 40 or 41D. They are very well-made. But the store asks over $200 for them.
    An Isaia shirt, in 43/17, not cheap.
    A Luciano Barberra jacket for women, in size 40.
    A very nice pair of Santoni light brown tassel loafers trimmed with lizard leather, almost new, probably worn less than 5 times, in size 12B. The leather is very soft and flawless. I may be able to proxy on thess shoes.

    What I got today:
    An Isaia navy pinstripe suit in 44L. Available.
