Yes, that one.    The Auction had like 6-7 days to go, and the seller didn't want to end the auction early. I was desperate as I needed it for NYE, and would never get it in time If I were to put a bid and wait... but at least I wouldn't have been in this mess If I did it the right way. 20/20 hindsight, and all that.    The money isn't really the issue here, what sucks is that the seller continues to ignore everything, and gets to do business as usual. 
I needed a tux before NYE, and this was a week before Christmas. Seller wrote in the auction that he/she could end it earlier if the item was needed for a certain date/event. I send a message asking for the BIN price, and we agree. Seller then sends me paypal address on a attached picture, and requested money as a gift/paypal (hence why I'm screwed).    Did a search for the seller, and couldn't really find anything that screamed scammer. Good feedback, has been flipping...
Hello all Torontonians,    It seems that I've been scammed by a store/Ebay flipper that is based in Toronto (From what I can gather). Since I'm in Europe, and pretty much SOL, is there anything one can do, like reporting the fraud to local Police? Or will that go straight in the bin?   Said scammer seems to have 30-60 items (suits) on Ebay at any given moment, so I'm sure some of you have seen the seller before. Even a member here on SF (I won't go into user name right...
Why are there certain auctions that I can't view or find?    I'm located in Norway, and follow some sellers from US and Canada. By pure coincidence, I came over one auction (via Ebay frontpage) that one of the sellers put out a few days ago. However, If I search for that auction, nothing shows up. Nor does it if I click on "See other items" or "items for sale" in his profile. I just get an empty list with "Your search returned 0 items."    They also come up If I do a...
From what I've heard, they're made in Italy, some are goodyear welted and with decent looking leather.    Have no idea how much they're going for, but I'm Imagining somewhere along Corneliani, Canali, Zegna and such shoes.    Anyone here that own, or have owned a pair? (Just as a reminder, we're NOT talking about regular HB shoes)   Just stumbled over them while plowing through Ebay, and I think this pair looks pretty sleek.  
[[SPOILER]] Just wondering, since I've seen Chiaia Napoli on Ebay a couple of times, do you have any experience with their RTW stuff? What brands are they comparable to, in terms of quality. 
I had the same problem last time I received something vith the Global shipping program. Couldn't track the package before it arrived customs here(after it was sent out from the sorting center)...I think the package used 2 or 3 weeks from US to Norway, and that was last March.   Keep in mind that the Holiday seasons can be incredibly slow and unpredictable. I've experienced that even 1-3 day guaranteed global express shipments have been stuck in customs for weeks during...
I had one suit from them, and it had more handwork than a Kiton from the same period (late 00s). Really nice suit. 
To the guys that are selling ties:    How do you deal with older stuff from the 90s? Where the style is horribly dated...wide ties with tiny knots.    Obviously lots of those ties are high quality, from high-end makers in some staple colors and geometries, but still, the "cut"/styling looks bad.   Do you mark them as vintage? 
They used to have a couple of really nice plain navy Washingtons, and it always sold out really fast. I have absolutely NO idea why they discontinued them.     But then again, the Lazio neither had any staple colors for the longest times, and then suddenly they started pushing that model some months ago.    I'm really not sure why they just can't keep some staple suits for all their models...nice plain navy, charcoal, etc.    Instead we get a boatload of these...
