    Aquascutum rain coat

    Perfect all around but has that thrifty smell to it.
    Will fit a 40-42 person perfectly

    Is haggling on best offer standard or do you just accept/decline the offer? I had great luck with it at first but lately everyone just ignores the counter.

    I haven't had any luck with haggling as a seller. As a buyer, I've only had luck on it once - on a bed cover for my Tacoma.

    I think the intention was to have it be an online bargaining/haggling tool. However, a lot of people simply jack up their prices when they use it as they know people will send low ball offers. I'm willing to haggle but I usually expect the first counter to be at least 10% off the original.

    If you don't like the results, I'd just say remove the OBO and leave it at a buy it now price.

    Offers have been reasonable-ish and it is built into my pricing. I was just trying to use it get a few extra bucks. Have a pair of shoes listed at 130, got offer for 95, countered at 105 assuming he would take it or split. Never heard back, wasn't worth losing the sale over $5-10 being greedy... oops.

    Garcon means boy :teach:

    SNS collab too? Id put that in B&S rather than the bay. Probably get more and save the 10% too.

    Went at lunch... Picked up a 40S Hugo Boss Einstein suit, solid charcoal, 3 button, for eBay unless someone's interested.

    Also got a pair of NOS Nettleton pebble grain longwings, 9D. Capnwes, you pick these up, right? Any tips for listing?

    How well can one clean suede? These are Giorgio Armani Made in Italy; but the size is 7 1/2 *cough* Brianpore *cough* Shouldn't it be in Italian sizing?

    If these can look new after a bit of work, and it's worth it to go get them, I'll sprint back at 5.

    The soles are perfect, so I guess they could be nice beaters regardless.
