The Ebay Round Up - The Things I Can't Afford To Purchase, Perhaps You Can

I heard recently that there is a blog that focuses on every week putting a list together of things that they like on Ebay. My first thought was 'how silly, why would you want to have more people competing for the things you want' but this was only Ebayer talking. I realised that of all the things I trawl, most items are out of my budget or else in the wrong size so I thought I would be generous with my time and right you readers out there a list of things which I think are heavenly and if you have Ebay you ought to jump on them.

Vintage Rolex 1806 Yellow Gold With Original Box And Papers

This is a beautiful piece and would look elegant on most men with the leather strap making it a little more subdued and less bling bling.

Genuine Herm├Ęs Belt Kit 32 mm Reversible BROWN Gold Brushed Buckle

 Because gold doesn't feature heavily on too many men these days I am inclined to give this a go just because when they zig you should zag. I used to find the H offensive and brash but in actual fact it's fairly clean and uncomplicated and has a lovely set up where it is detachable.

$1300 Zilli Mens 2014 Patent Leather Black Shoes Size 10.5 / 11.5 US

Given that dinner suit shoes are hard to come by I think that these Zilli oxfords represent very good value on their sale price of $499 USD. Zilli is perhaps very 'Russian' in some of it's offering but I think these shoes would look swish no matter what tuxedo you wore with them.

Brand New Brioni  Polo Neck Contrast Short Sleeve 100% Cotton Size 3XL

Coming into summer I think this is a pretty fun loving t-shirt that could be worn on the back of a yacht on Sydney harbour with a pair of trousers and you would look like a new Onassis.

I particularly like the contrast between the pannacotta jersey and the trim.

SMYTHSON Mara Collection Dark Berry Cardholder

I have always been partial to Smythson so I think this Mara card holder in berry is a great way to present your business card. And for 49.95 GBP I think it's very reasonable and looks undamaged.

Finally, I think these Gucci chelsea boots are not exactly good value for money at 349 GBP, especially since they have been worn a couple of times, but I still think they would be exceptional shoes and make any chap look cool coming into winter in the northern hemisphere.

Well, I think that for a first Ebay round up that's not a bad start and I have a whole lot more I wish to tell you about in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to the blog as I will post the next round up in a fortnight towards the Christmas rush.
