    ditto that
    and uses the worst camera I've ever seen for someone who actually sells with frequency. Probably also uses a brick cell phone like Zack Morris in Saved by the Bell.

    The funniest feedback on there is where his response to negative feedback was that he felt he was getting ripped off because somebody wanted to charge him $5 for shipping a CD. People should read the entire auction page and see what it says about shipping. Asking $5 to ship a CD is perfectly reasonable to me, especially considering the shipping price includes shipping AND handling, it costs people a buck or two just to go down to the post office. I'd stay away from this guy.

    I'm not as put off by this seller I guess. The seller always has detailed descriptions and lots of pictures, even though the pictures aren't all 100% clear. I've seen far, far worse auctions. Some of the negative feedback is unjustified, as you can see.

    This seller also is a pretty regular seller of very high end men's suits and blazers. He has sold quite a few that were from Savile Row. The prices are always low. Some (many?) of the items are a little "off" sometimes though - for example, a nice suit but with a very short inseam and no room for expansion. Or, as with this Kiton auction, very short arms.

    Feedback is not so bad, really.

    If you feel you can actually tell what the color of the fabric is, then bid yes.

    i would pass on this one; jacket looks too "furry" of a wool; there have been some really great kiton pieces lately that might better suit ya.
