I went shopping with Ms. CWI today. Sale season at a bunch of random little boutiques in SF: bought 1 necklace, 2x cuffs, 5 knits, 1 dress, 1 skirt and 1 shirt for < $200. Meanwhile on Styleforum: foo.gif

I think I've gotten one thing from them in the last 2 years and it wasn't even for me, was a gift... their shit isn't even on sale really.

I bought a merino sweater from ebay and there are two little moth holes near the neck, unmentioned in the listing.  It was very cheap ($40 for a dries knit), but at the same time I feel a bit ripped off.  On the other hand, I can probably have it repaired for another $20 and still have got a deal.

 

What would you guys do? Send it back or keep?  It's quite nice apart from the holes.

Ask for $10 back
If it's still a deal keep and get $ to offset
Seller may not have noticed but take pics

As annoying as it may be, I would probably keep it and give the seller a negative or neutral review (not that he cares). But I think I'm quite poor compared to other people on this board. Maybe I would send it back when I would have more money.

Then you're a dick.

 

Basically, just do what Sparrow said.  I've been on both sides of that scenario and civilly asking for a partial refund has always been just fine for both parties.

And unless it's a super fine knit, a couple minutes with a needle and thread can usually cinch together small holes to the point where they're only noticeable from close up.

Finally got my shit in order and got a new job after resigning from my old one last year, I think I'm going to have to go buy some suits.

Yea, I would never just leave negative feedback; I'm not even sure the seller noticed the holes.  It is an extremely fine knit, I can barely see the threads.

I think there are places you can send that will repair moth holes. No idea how well they work. Anyone done it?

You might want to have it cleaned to make sure there are no eggs in it or it could be the most expensive knit you've ever bought.

Our man GDL just hit 30k posts, so to celebrate there is a super special SF discount on NMWA.  This is a good chance to jump on the new Schneider drops in particular (or Buttero, or Porter bags,. or Inis Meain or, or or or .....) so I wouldn't sleep on it. Basically the lowest prices on any of this stuff you'll see until 5 months from now when sales hit and stock is low.
