Well, that took longer than expected. But it’s finally here! We’re very proud to announce the launch of our new area on the site: the IA Classifieds. A marketplace dedicated to fans of James Bond, Steve McQueen and all our other favorite men’s style masters. You can head there now if you don’t want to read the rest of this post:
So what exactly are the IA Classifieds? Simply put, it’s a place where you can sell and buy clothing, props and memorabilia related to our favorite MI6 agent and the other style icons we discuss here. And it’s completely free to use. There’s no charge for creating your account, posting a listing, or contacting sellers. None. Zilch. Zero.
We also don’t process any payments. Which means we don’t collect any fees or commissions when you actually sell or buy an item. All that’s between you, the other person and Paypal (or whatever payment system you decide to use). All we do is help you promote the stuff you’re selling, find the stuff you want to buy, and facilitate initial contact between the buyer and the seller. Then we get the hell out of the way.
You can learn more about how the IA Classifieds operate in this Introduction Guide.
What kind of stuff will I find?
The Classifieds currently has eight categories: Outerwear, Pants and Shorts, Shirts and Sweaters, Shoes and Boots, Suits and Sport Coats, Ties and Accessories, Watches and Jewelry and Props and Memorabilia. So pretty much anything Bond-related should turn up at some point. Here are a couple of examples of items currently available.
Who can use the IA Classifieds?
Pretty much anyone anywhere. There’s just two basic rules and one suggestion. First, you must be 18 years of age or older to post a listing. Second, you can’t post anything offensive or illegal. And third, we suggest that you keep the items you’re selling focused on the things other fans of Bond, McQueen, etc. will want. The rest of legalese can be found in our Terms and Conditions.
Can I link to other sites in my listing?
Yep! If you have an item already listed on Ebay, The Real Real, Etsy, Grailed or some other market place site, you can include a link to your listing on that site in the “Item Description”.
What if I’m a company and I want to promote or sell my products in the Classified(s)?
We have plans for that. You can use the Contact Form on this page to send us a message or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to discuss options with you.
To start, the IA Classifieds will be a fairly basic service. Not a lot of bells and whistles. But we have some ideas about where we’d like to see it go in the coming months. And of course, you’re ideas, suggestions and recommendations are always welcome. Thanks again for visiting us and I really hope this new feature helps you find good homes for the items you’re selling or discover that grail item you’ve been looking for!
