It's even on the same item. I had to re-list it after the Japanese guy went silent. Now I've got a German guy who seems baffled that I won't ship to Germany for twenty bucks.

I had this on my ad:

You may notice this is a re-listed auction. To be clear: THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR UNITED STATES SHIPPING ONLY.

It should look like this (I think the picture he linked was in reference to color, because that's a purse, lol)

The one I posted a link to and said I liked it better? That looked awesome on their website. I'd gladly carry that into a meeting.

Yea, you posted an unclear mobile link, but my last case was handles only and i think I ultimately prefer no strap.

Then there is the single vent vs. Double
I like both fits, depending on the suit and like dave mentioned, there aren't too many regent fit suits available in store
I have several regent fit jackets but no suits

I had to relist my phone multiple times because two winning bidders were from other countries and a US member never paid
Ebay does not care about the sellers anymore
You can't even leave a negative feedback and it doesn't mean anything anymore if people don't pay for items they bid on

This was supposed to be a joke--the "fix" would require Japan and Germany being added to the continental US.

on a whim, i ordered a pair of "lived in slim khakis" from Gap
they fit very nicely
not loose and not stupid skinny
just right for me
but dang ... when did the Gap get so expensive? these were still over $40 after 30% discount
$59.95 full price

looking on the website now ... they are on sale for $45 ... + 30% discount on top? i think i will have to price adjust or return and reorder

oh ... only certain colors are on sale
i think i might give one of the sale colors a try

Just for perspective, go check out a few bags at twice and half the price level, to see how they compare. Then you'll probably get a better sense for whether the Bosca bag is a a good value.
Took your advice and did exactly that. The Bosca has a level of construction I'd put in the $750-$1,000+ range, IMO; the leather also has a great feel of quality to it. Overall, very pleased with the purchase and will make a great Channukah gift (especially at $341 OTD)
