    Today I ordered a 3/4 car coat for in between seasons..

    It's too cold for a biker jacket, and too hot for my winter coats, so I need something smart but practical to wear during spring and autumn.

    I'll post pics when it arrives:)

    Unless it's different for newer members, the GSP is something you have to opt into. It's a fine program if you sell heavier items or want full protection if a package disappears. I sell lighter items, so it doesn't really make sense for me, but I know a lot of full-time eBay sellers who love the program since eBay foots the bill in the event that the package doesn't arrive at its intended destination.

    Regular insurance is a lot cheaper than GSP fees. It's just another middleman business racket.

    Guess that makes my decision easier. No worries, with Schneider sizing the way it is everyone's gonna be able to pick one up from b&s.

    At some point earlier this year eBay opted all (I believe) sellers into the GSP if you weren't already -- I know I received an email about it. You can still opt back out, but they're definitely pushing it hard.

    This colour way isn't popular it seems. I got mine for a similar price also nib. The pics don't do it justice. Really versatile boots.

    $500 is pretty much the price nib for older season models that aren't kangaroo or kudu. Suede generally goes for less too. My kudu pair are worn a looooot and I only paid $400 nib.

    This.

    Kudu leather is super tough, so much that the stitching will go undone before the leather stretches, at least that's what happened to my Peter Nappi.

    There was a new pair on Rakuten for $350, dark brown though.

    I bought some black derbies from Rokin a few weeks ago. Leather is not the prettiest - has some odd creasing on the surface - but the shape is really good. I expect leather quality will matter less for suede.
