Oo-err, I'm surprised whoever made them thinks there's a market for them? unless they've been made 'on the cheap' somehow. They don't look the best fit either :?

But it's used, somebody must have actually bought one. Ah, the seller is a breaker of sorts, so probably doesn't realise somebody made that eyesore out of an old wardrobe.

How very odd.

The pieces seem to fit very well, it's just that the material is far too thick and, erm, distinctive.
