    @Blackadder was explaining the speculation market a few weeks back...sellers will sometimes accept bids on ebay, and then purchase the item from a yahoo japan auction pocketing the difference.

    Gorgeous jacket. The only thing I don’t like is the lack of piping around the zippers on the d pocket and pillion pockets.

    I developed a pastime some time ago where I send the ebay reseller a link to the original yahoo auction I recognise the pictures from. I've had ebay later sent me one of their helpful emails to say 'an item you were interested in has been discounted . . .' , still massively inflated but in a lot of cases they are folding in delivery charges

    There is also the risk factor of return. Most if not all Yahoo auction Japan sellers do not accept return and the proxy service do not usually return any item for you (if you pay the premium on the proxy service insurance then you are "somewhat" covered) but it seems easier to get a refund on ebay. If the ebay seller accepts return then that risk is most certainly included in the price.

    The maker is Y2. Unfortunately I’m not sure when it was made. This jacket is on eBay right now : https://www.ebay.com/itm/362993430771
    for a very reasonable price but in a tiny size. If it were my size these pictures would’ve instead been posted in the incoming thread! I LOVE this jacket and the rising sun back is just too cool.

    It is inspired by the smoke jacket from East West, this is the Jelado repro

    Too small for me... otherwise would have been tempting!

    Would fit me perfectly but too similar to the Deadwood. I wish it was in another colour....

    For some reason I can't see any photos you post the last week or so in Chrome. I switch to Microsoft Edge and I can see your pics (I hate using Edge).

    Strange as some people can see the pics I upload and some do not. I use Firefox...perhaps that's the reason as Chrome and Firefox don't like each other ;)

    Only happens with a few sites and normally not this one. The problem is with Chrome.
