The overcoat may end up being a better deal, even if it is fake, but still.
So do I contact the seller first, or put in a claim through paypal?
I'd make sure you stay on top of paypal's timing requirements but contact the seller first. He could agree to give a refund. Or, alternatively, he could try to give you some bs explanation. In the process of doing so, he could well end up saying something stupid and demonstrably false that would only help your case with paypal. I don't see much downside in contacting him - at the very least, you may get a preview of what his story is going to be.
