I remember this and believe it was Suited. I assumed that since the buyer himself left the positive feedback, I stood a good chance. Just didn't know if anyone had first hand experience of having a case opened after getting positive feedback. 

It was me, there were a number of factors at play. The buyer claimed that the jacket smelled. If you total up the main points of the case (which eBay likely did), his story didn't add up:

1) When the buyer opened the case I informed him that I always inspect items for smells, in addition to physical damage. I told him that this coat did not have any smell.
2) I sold another overcoat that came from the same donor just days before. This coat was the same brand, same size, same style. The buyer of that coat left positive feedback.
3) In the auction description, I mentioned that I had tried this jacket on myself so I could accurately gauge the size. The auction description said something like "I'm a 42R suit jacket and this is a very snug fit for me." This means that I was wearing the jacket at one point and would have surely smelled any strong odors.
4) I offered to pay for a cleaning, the buyer declined and said that the jacket smelled so bad that a cleaning would not help.
5) I offered a partial refund, which the buyer initially declined, then came back and said he wanted "at least a 50% refund plus cleaning costs."
6) I declined the above offer and questioned his logic. If the jacket smelled so bad that he was convinced a professional cleaning would not remove the smell, why would he even entice a partial refund?
7) I offered one last time to pay for a cleaning, and generously offered $25 in cleaning costs. He declined even after I had informed him that I spoke with an eBay rep and they advised me that I was not at fault here.

At one point during the case he attempted to leverage his 100% positive feedback. I replied by saying that I understood his point, but it just didn't make sense for me to risk my business, which helps pay my mortgage, by misrepresenting an item. We can all relate to that.

Is "smells bad" the new go to for buyers looking for a NAD case? It can't be pinned down in pictures, and eBay is not about to send a customer service rep out to smell the goods.

Same buyer as above? :smarmy:

I bought a number of these poly bags for inside priority mail boxes (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EM5PZH2/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) Are there any clothing items that you just toss into a poly bag and ship?

Closest I get to "toss & ship" are shirts.  Fold shirt, toss in USPS free bag :hide:, then throw into that poly.

Yeah, I use just the mailers for standard shipping for cheap-ish shirts, except I double bag them. I use the legal flat rate priority envelope for pants, and most pants fit inside it. Except I have a pair of heavy size 40 Orvis corduroy pants that will absolutely not fit. Thinking of using just the mailers and no box with that weight. I don't think I can ship them priority for less than $5.95 (which I charge for pants) unless the buyer's close by and I can just use the RRA box. Hope I get lucky there.

 

Is there a better/cheaper way to ship heavy pants via priority? I don't want to charge them $10 for pants - it seems too much.

The padded flat rate envelope will hold considerably more than the paper ones. Give that a try.

+1. And for only $0.36 more than the legal flat rate.

Gents,

 

Does this looks Genuine? RLBL Anthony Fit.

My only doubt is the sleeve size says 24, when the anthony fit usually has a 25" sleeve for a 36R suit.

Thanks

Thanks for the tip! I just assumed the legal flat rate would hold more because it is longer. Will give it a try.

Hola,

The cleat on the toe was broken off during shipping. It can be replaced, but the shoes are completely usable even without that cleat.

Cheers,

 

GF is Mexican...hope this helps. 

 

Hola,

 

En los zapatos, unos de los "tacos" tapones se rompio durante el envio de correo. El "taco" se pude reponer, pero los zapatos estan completamente usables sin el "taco." 

 

Gracias!

I concur. However, is the speaker Mexican or from some other central/south American country? There are differences within the diff Spanish variations.

I assume Mexican, as Ebay says the buyer is in Mexico. I feel like something gets lost in the translation. There are pictures in the listing, so hopefully he can figure it out!

Ok, wasn't going to bash in public, but this tea bagger earned this one.  Finally had a person ask for free shipping AFTER auction end, when I said no (sorry not going to encourage this behavior, he'll buy from YOU next) he said that he saw some flaw in the pictures (NO) and now wants to cancel the transaction.  So, I already blocked the ahole, I recommend you do the same.

Here's where you go, EVERYONE who sells on eBay should block this person, take a second, enter the name above in the box.
