can you provide photos of the pants laid out flat and to the side so I can see the length.
This made me wonder how others handle this type of thing. Do you always provide the requested information? I used to, but lately I have observed that the more ridiculous the question, the less likely the person is to bid on the item.
Wait, could you turn the pants inside out and try them on for me? I'll go to reasonable lengths to make sure that the potential buyer is happy, but I also try to keep in mind that I'm a hobby seller and I wouldn't go to unreasonable (i.e., your person's request) lengths to try to satisfy them. You provided measurements, they can measure them on their own. If they want to know something more specific, I'd be happy to answer, but asking you to take redundant photos seems a bit much. Only my opinion though!

Now here is my impatient repost:
I am messing with a border to separate the "who we are portion," any thoughts? I also removed the borders around the images.http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/2015/ebaycodingexample4.jpg
Does anyone have any advice on the background color? The Papyrus color I am unsure about but can't really decide on anything better...
I'd say you can keep it going here as it seems pertinent to quite a few people. If you'd like more focused response, you can create your own thread, but it's always nice to have it in one spot to help refer people in the future! Oh, and by the way, it seems like you're doing both a great job with it and a nice service to others
