Could you give me some examples? I tried some Italian brands for blazers, and the ones that fit in chest were too big in shoulders. Don't know what brands to look for for general outerwear/streetwear though.
Stuff that is made for the Italian mid-market, like Paolo Pecora and Dondup, and brands like Barena, will probably work. Your questions is general, so it's hard to give better recommendations.
If everything in KJ's second statement (especially the bolded part) is true, then no, he should not have return the money or the item. Both parties entered into an agreement brokered by eBay and agreed to the eBay's terms of service. The seller chose not to adhere to those terms and got burned. Frankly, after waiting for a month I don't see why the seller even bothered to ship the item. At that point the seller should have either kept the item and either refunded the money or dealt with the inevitable Paypal dispute.
KJ, should keep the item and the money.
This is so, so stupid. Handling time is not binding nor strictly enforced.
Once every few weeks I look at mr porter's new arrivals and laugh at all the junk they buy. For several years I was conditioned to higher and higher prices and it reached an inflection point sometime last year. Now, instead of accepting this extortionate pricing structure I balk at the prices. I now look at most of this stuff with common sense and realize how grossly overpriced everything is. A t-shirt for 255? Spare me. Boots for $2000? No thanks, that's a caribbean vacation. Or a mortgage payment. Or a decent couch, two pairs is a sick couch. I don't know maybe I'm just burned out from all this shit since I'm content with everything I have and nothing nowadays holds a candle. This is why I really enjoy honest designers like stephan schneider, he allows you to look good and enjoy other pleasures without ripping you off. I place a high value on, well, value these days.
