    0 Feedback bidder and a clown chiseling it up bid by bid.

    Wait for the relist with the usual "Relisted due to non paying bidder".

    Pretty sure eBay still does the Second Chance Offer where you can move the under bidder who missed it? "No, I was just bidding up the other guy...but thanks..." ;)

    Regardless, still may be a deal to some, considering that a new one from BK would run over $2100.00 USD in the Victory HH. ;)

    Too rich for my tastes, had a go but think I'll have to try winning their competition instead.

    No doubting it is a great jacket and I LOVE my BK Werber in the Victory Russet.. I don't know how they have doubled in price in the last five years though? Glad I put an original Crown zip in it now!!

    As far as eBay auctions go though it is as dodgy as a $3 bill....

    I don't get it. The username is bkchicago but the location is Greece. So where exactly are they based?

    And the website suggests Blakelands, MK, UK. They make great jackets but I don't get why they're confusing people (like me)?

    Made in Greece, company registered in the UK, owner lives in the USA, who knows.
    Mine was posted from Greece, of that I'm certain.

    or worse. its your jacket that you have up on greedbay, and some smartyass, or asses play silly bugger with the auction, bidding up you jacket with no intention of ever paying for it. at the end,, ya think ya dun gud, only to find nada, and it back to relisting and fielding Qs from watchers, like didnt that jacket sell a week or two ago?, why is it relisted?, whats wrong with it?, etc. and....going through the eb rigamarole of fees applied to the "final sale". more fun with dick and jane. btw, sometimes these cretins have "feedbacks" of more then 5, just to be able to bid on the auctions that stipulate "no bidders with less then 5 feedbacks". when ya wise up and go to their feedback, ya find they have only purchased 5 low priced brat junk.

    Yeah. I linked that one in my “wow what a looker” thread too as I saw that. I am keeping my eye out for another one in 36-38.

    At least the last one went to a nice guy here.

    A hell of a jacket. I certainly hope you guys are right about it being re-listed.
