"KILLER Corneliani ID Silk Linen Outdoor Safari Textured Waffle Sport Coat Jacket 40R

I love it, great title. I love this jacket to, I wear a 44R and squeezed into it trying to tell myself that it didn't look too bad with the sleeves riding 1 ½" up my wrist :blush:

I have one of those size issues, this Banana Republic Linen chore coat is tagged a M but it fits me a L a little loose. I had my son try it on and it was baggy on him and he normally wears a M. I put M (L) in the title, listed the tagged size than added this blurb "Please check the measurements, I wear a 44R jacket and a large coat and this fits me with room to spare. I had my son who is a Medium try it on and it was very big on him. So unless you plan to wear a few layers or like your jacket really baggy please verify against the measurements below."

 

 

After trying it on I am tempted to keep it, but I have to clean some stuff out. My eBay room is looking like an episode of the hoarders.

Its up to you Shoeluv.  If you list the size labeled, and give measurements for that size, you are clearing yourself from any sizing issues related to SNAD.  If you give the blurb you have written, I strongly suggest you still put M (tagged size) in the title only, and also Medium ONLY in the item specifics.  From there you can keep that blurb in the listing, but do know that on a rare occasion, that could still hurt you.  A buyer can claim, well the seller told me this would fit if I am a Large, and it doesn't, so SNAD!

 

Its a gray area most of the time.  But just using listed size, and using measurements for that size, you are clearing yourself as best you can!

I'm listing a vintage PRL blazer, old enough that the size tag has fallen off into the inside pocket. Do you think I should include a photo of it to show the tagged size?

I noticed something else new today on my account, and it appears consistent for you.  If you click on your feedback #, it says Top Rated at the top of the page: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=nashvilleclosets&ftab=AllFeedback

I have an item that is large and weighs 1lb 12oz. To ship it Reg A is $7.55 and regular priority by weight is $7.17. Can you use a normal priority label on a regional box?

I don't see why not, if you cover the Regional markings with Priority stickers and do the measurements and weight when calculating shipping...hopefully I'm reading into this wrong and you're not really fretting over 38 cents, and instead just don't have any standard Priority boxes, but do have RRA boxes.

I've covered the RR print with the free priority mail stickers as well.  I've had the postal worker say out loud "Is this a regional box?" flip it on each side checking for the markings and then appeared to be fine enough with it when he could not "locate" any.  I did not answer his question, I just let him do his checking.

Of course I am, I am not doing this eBay thing to support USPS; but my family. My fiduciary duty to them is to find the cheapest shipping method, even to save 38¢. Eventually I would like to sell 100 items a month, saving that per item would add up over the course of a year. Yes it is reductio ad absurdum but if you save 38¢ on every package and ship 1200 a year you would save $456. Wouldn't you rather spend that money on yourself instead of donating it to the Government? That would pay for 4 months of Cross-Fit or 2 years of family membership at our local recreation center. That is a car payment (except for Spoo, it is half of his car payment. Then again he ships more than 100 items a months so he could save a car payment a year).

 

I worked for a guy when I was a teenager cleaning his apartments when people moved out. One day I had swept everything in the kitchen into a pile, he walked in and reached down and pulled out two pennies. He said you know what kind of person picks up pennies from the ground? Being a smart ass I said a homeless person? He replied "A millionaire" and jumped in his Mercedes drove away and left me with my broom and bicycle.

 

“Take care of your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves.” 

 

Did I sound like a pompous ass? Actually I went through my hundred or so priority boxes and realized I only ordered the Regional and Flat rate boxes and have never used or ordered any standard priority boxes. I just ordered one of each size. Now I need to figure out how to store these efficiently and out of the way. And as you can tell from the rambling, tonight has seen one bottle of Ménage à Trois Pinot Noir (Yes I just spent several minutes finding the proper accents for the symbols) disappear into my wine glass.

I do not have direct experience with this, however, I can tell you that sending non flat rate priority in Flat rate boxes can get them kicked back to you.

That is all very true.

But if I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to save 38 cents, Id lose probably $65. Of course, you are 100% right - but as they say, YMMV.
