I bought a pair of jeans on ebay, the guy sent them over and they looked fine. When I uncuffed them, a bunch of dirt fell out and there was lint and dust in there. It was disgusting. Thing is, I did this after I tried them on and they fit pretty damn well.

What do you consider a fair outcome in this case?

Brush them and wear them.

Big deal... You bought used jeans and they were dirty? Or were these the Gustins? If so, I'd contact the seller and request a small discount since you paid "like new" price for them.

So I sold a pair of shoes on Feb 8th. Buyer paid and left positive feedback on Feb 14. I get and email today saying he wore them a few times and they have fell apart. I asked him for pics and he sent this over. Well damn. I feel bad, but I have to also think of how he may have worn them, trickery, etc. What would you do?

What was the age if the shoes?
They look like they rotted over time.

I don't think this is a big deal. The only way it matters if if the jeans were supposed to be new with tag. This is a natural side effect of wearing cuffed pants. It doesn't effect the long term wearability of the pants.

Honesty I am not 100% sure of the age. 

 

Oh geez. He's a State Rep for a Midwest state.

True. But I'd be horrified if I sold something where the buyer uncuffed pants and dirt/sand actually fell out. I wouldn't give a full refund, but I'd give something back or pay a bit to have them cleaned. Or at least ask then to return if that's what they wanted.

Yup that they are.

I could swallow my pride on that, but dirt sand falling out was pretty gross.

You've never had a pair of cuffed pants do this?

That's very common in cuffed pants, and doesn't take much for that stuff to add up in there. I certainly won't clean cuffed pants I sell, especially if they are tacked. Now if they are jeans I find, I'll probably end up uncuffing them at some point, and just brush them out real quick.

And if I purchased a pair of pants, and found it. I wouldn't complain as long as the integrity of the pants are not jeperadized.

Clean and move on.

My advice stands. You paid a "like new" price for those. I'd mention it to the seller and ask for a small refund. It's not like these jeans were advertised as well-used.

I was thinking more of the ripped cover. But I also take issue with the listing for advertising a recent label Spooner shirt as vintage...

Yeah, I should've mentioned I was just kidding.

Really though, how could a person think that was ok? Esp for an asking price that high.... Spend the 47 seconds and get it right.
