notwithit: do you have any evidence of the ebay transaction, perhaps in e-mail form at least?

if so, point out that it was indeed the one he sold to you and retain all correspondence so you have evidence if he decides to pursue a paypal claim. sounds like buyer's remorse to me.

A couple of months ago, someone posted a link to a Boglioli unstructured herringbone jacket in the official ebay/b&s thread. Fool that I am, I put in a snipe, forgot about it, and ended up winning. It's a nice jacket, and one that I could probably give a good home. Regardless, it was during the heady days of midsummer, and there was no way in hell I was going to wear outerwear before October arrived. I hung it in my closet in the "I need to tailor this shit" section and promptly forgot about it until recently.

A couple of weeks ago, the guy contacts me saying his wife reminded him that she helped him pick out the jacket and could he please buy it back. He offers me a higher price than I paid on ebay, and I say ok. It takes him a while to pay for some reason - he originally asked me to send him a Google checkout invoice, and I have no idea how to do that or any particular interest in learning - but eventually he sends the money via PayPal and I mail him the jacket, which I have neither worn nor tailored at this point.

A couple of days after the jacket has arrived, I get an email from the guy saying that it's the wrong jacket. He wanted to buy back the brown Boglioli unstructured herringbone jacket, and I sent him the burgundy Boglioli unstructured herringbone jacket. (FWIW, I agree that the jacket is probably more burgundy than brown, but it's close enough between the two that it's kind of splitting hairs.) As such, he'd like to get his money back and he'll return the jacket to me. The only thing I can figure, unless the guy is totally blowing smoke, is that he had two Boglioli unstructured herringbone jackets, one in a brownish burgundy and the other in a true brown, and he thought he sold me the latter - which he must have sold at around the same time and for a similar price - when he actually sold me the former.

I'm not entirely sure what to do at this point. I don't particularly need the jacket, and I don't particularly want to deal with this person any more. The whole thing smells a bit off and I'd just as soon wash my hands of the matter, but at the same time I don't want this person harassing me via email or opening a PayPal claim against me.

Yeah, what nahneun said. You've already bent over backward for this guy. He's extremely lucky that you were willing to sell back a jacket you bought and paid for months ago, and it was kind of you to do so. To now say, "whoops don't want it back after all, take it back" is ridiculous and wasting your time. Get ebay records, get paypal records, and tell him (politely) he's out of luck, and hope he doesn't open a claim.

On another topic: am I the only one who just can't stand how peacoats look at all anymore? I used to like them. Now if I see one, I either think "fits bad" or at best "okay but boring." Has styleforum broken me? Maybe it's just all the posts online with people so excited about their first peacoat, such a classic omg blargagagghbl

I've always disliked peacoats (and pretty much anything double breasted).

Oh and big thanks to nahneun, finally tested out that new cuckoo, was a bit of a pain in the ass to source and pretty expensive for a rice cooker but god damn! shit cooks fast, every single grain comes out perfect and leftover rice stays warm and soft overnight without issue.
Thanks again for that recommendation.

Oh, in the background?  That's just an advertiser site skin.  They pay the $$$ (well, more like $) so that I can keep this place running reasonably.  

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

I'll spare you the french media reaction. It's interesting how the first article was probably influenced by the recent Guy Debord exhibit at the BnF:

I think that they can be sorta cool, though yeah, not a huge fan of the traditional blue at this point.  But I think that some designers like McQueen do a good job of getting that Keith Richards circa Rock and Roll Circus look down pretty well.  There is a picture in the archives somewhere of him walking, with this cinched peacoat, hands in his pockets, walking, and he has these incredible flares and picklewinkers.  Such an awesome look for him.

Received my first law school acceptance email this morning! In at Notre Dame with a (yet to be determined) scholarship!

Interviewed with Georgetown yesterday, but I've really got my sights set on Michigan

NYT articles about Paris are such smh-factories, the final column from their last 2 departing bureau chiefs being good examples. Talk about judging things from an ivory tower...
