    Why some many comments here, I am glad this jacket does not fit me? I feel this comment misses the point of seeking cool jackets here at fair prices, deals you will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. If I see a jacket I would like to own at an attractive price here and the size does not work I am disappointed

    I really do think that such comments are intended as compliments. Like saying, "such a nice jacket, I'd have to buy it if it fit me."

    sometimes they are also just giving the sale a bump up the line of sale threads.

    Well I'm tempted to reply that way a lot but don't. Particularly with ton's sales! If we were same size I would have spent some serious coin and have a whole rack of his jackets lol

    Showing interest may increase the chance of sell. At least better than 0 comments. lol

    It’s “if this fit me I’d be forced to buy it” 1000% a compliment

    No mystery there. I am often glad when I see something really cool which doesn't fit. Just means I won't be tempted to blow money on an umpteenth jacket I wont get a chance to wear anyway.

    Interesting you're interpreting it that way, Jon, but the thought that it's about disappointment never once crossed my mind.
    I mean, I can see your point now but... It's just a very nice way of saying how much someone loves a jacket being sold, despite the fact that they cannot wear it. Personally, the type of comment I love to see. It's well intended, useful as it bumps the sale thread to the top & shows that there's an interest toward an item, especially if said by an a long time member. And ultimately, it's the truth.

    It's to reflect the fact that you can put the money you would have spent on the jacket towards saving for college!
