    A series of fines dating back about 2 years ago that recently came back up. Driving under suspension and simple possession. Roughly $2600 worth of bullssssssshit.

    This is fair. I was more just typing it out as motivation for myself to get off my ass and sell things

    I am not really sure if these are any good. I thought cashmere must always be good. And linen-cotton blend shirt might be good for impending warm weather. Too bad I am more of a medium.

    EDIT: Actually, the cashmere sweater fits me fine so I'll keep that. Gitman is definitely too big in the body. If no one wants it, I might just take the buttons.

    This happened to me in 3 months during a 5 month timeframe. I was restricted from selling any item of "desired" brands. This included Armani, Hugo Boss, Gucci, Lacoste, Polo RL, and all sorts of other designers. For some reason I could still sell brands like Brioni, Zegna, Kiton, Canali, etc. Anyways, I have no idea why it kept happening to me, but I built up massive amounts of inventory because of it. Literally 3 months I couldn't sell that stuff... such a pain in the ass.

    I tried calling ebay a few times to figure out what the deal was, since I never had feedback issues. Ebay was completely useless in the issue. Oh yeah, and this happened even after I became a top rated seller.
