Interestingly enough, this seller switched to BIN listings only a few months ago and has since listed his stuff at surprisingly high prices in general. His items for sale list is getting longer and longer - the new method doen't appear to work too well.
He does have some great early stuff occasionally, though.

it's interesting though, just how many repairs the jacket's owner decided that the jacket deserved.
i would have stopped wearing the jacket after just one major hole on the front, if it was a 'smart' jacket. but if it's a gardening jacket or work jacket where do you stop ?

It makes me wonder whether the jacket was found in a completely knackered condition and the repairs have now been made for effect. After all, if the jacket was just for gardening/work would you really bother to make that many repairs?

Jinkies, those longjohns look like they're too far gone even to serve as a pattern. I'd call them overpriced, even if they were worn by Elvis himself.
