I haven't done an auction style listing in over 5 years..  Ebay doesn't punish buyers anymore, only sellers. A seller that gets 3 listing violations or opens buyer's remorse aka "buyer protection" cases within 3 months will be on the verge of suspension by an automated system and this can take months to overturn (if at all.)

 

This is why BIN w/Immediate Payment eliminates 99% of ebay trolls.

In other news - anyone waiting for RRL to do some new designs instead of just new colors of the last two-three years designs? It seems a bit tired to me lately, IMO...

I have only been buying RRL over the last 5 seasons (less then 2 years) and I was just the other day thinking the same thing. bored.gif

Seller is solid. I have transacted with him before and I have been pleased with the results. I messaged him after the auction to congratulate him and he admitted to being totally shocked by the results. I hope it works out for him, because he is a decent guy.

To make things worse, when a buyer renegs, everyone thinks there's something fishy with the seller when the item is relisted, so they are leery of bidding. Same thing with second chance offers.

When I sell things (not often), I often only sell to the US for that reason.

Selling to only the US pretty much kills you making any money. All the money is overseas. I sell records sometimes on ebay and vinyl will easily go for 3-4 times in Europe what its US value is so when I see sellers listing records as US only it blows my mind. The only real problem I have with overseas sellers is customs can take forever (especially in the UK) and they somehow think you can do something about it

Question on the slim fit New Black and Black wash...

 

I bought a pair back in September. I like them, but I don't nearly wear them enough because they're really stiff and just uncomfortable - they're the right size, just mostly due to the fabric. I'm usually all about wearing my jeans as long as possible before washing, but I'm thinking of doing that now to soften them up.

 

Is that a good or bad idea? Anyone have any experience with them?

I don't think they'll lose their color on the first wash, if that's what you're asking.  But really, it sounds like a good problem to have.  

 

Here are my straight-leg rigids a couple of washes in:

Black on black is just overdyed right? Don't see any harm in washing since you aren't going for any fades. Will probably shrink a tiny bit but stretch out no probs.

It's pretty TTS, but the selvedge ones do stretch a little. The rise has been lower in my experience, I wear a size 29.

On topic: Where are the officer chino's online (the khaki twill ones described as selvedge that go for $240), can't seem to find them anymore, but they were online, in several sizes, last week.

Question Time. does anybody know why in the UK the prices are so much higher than the USA for certain items but not for others.

Example, I bought the sulphur wash denim for £350ish.The USA price is $390. then the nautical arran style shawl collar cardigan lists at $695 in the USA. The UK price is £850!

can anyone explain this?

Swet baby Jesus, enough with the sweatpants already! You make me want to tear my fucking eyes out so I no longer feel inclined to read this thread.
