Until recently, I was shipping rolled in a 2x3x5 box. Had two come back from the same buyer. He claimed they were not as discribed, but never gave an explaination of what he meant. Both were in Excellent shape when sent, but returned a bit creased and required pressing. I assume this is what he was referring to. Now I use a small flat rate priority box with it loosely folded. No feedback on the new method yet.

 

See Brianpore for other options...which may or may not be considered federal crime.

No idea what your talking about dozingoff.gif

 

I did a gif of how I ship ties before, can't find it now, but will look harder for it. I have never had a complait and had many of compliments on my shipping method.

 

Basically:

 

  • Fold it in thirds, but make sure the fat end is folded in first so the tip does not get creased
  • Wrap it in tissue paper so no pulls
  • Put it in a bad to water proof it - choose whatever kind of bad you want that it fits in without bending or creasing
  • Put is in a more ridgid envelope type thing - your choice what you want to use, between 2 pieces of cardboard would work also.
  • Put in another bag (this step is optional)
  • Put in a white thing plastic security mailer envelope  (which I use to ship everything that goes 1st class mail)

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic?

Seems that I have a difficult time selling high end Italian jackets for much more.  I have sold four sweaters this week, which may be signaling the start of the new season. One of the sweaters, a heavy wool one sold to Brazil(?) So not sure that is part of the seasonal flux since it is winter there, or as much as winter that it can be. . .  

I know what you mean. I just sold a linen sport coat and there is interest in my other linen stuff, it just isn't selling like it was in May. Same with sunglasses. At the same time, I don't see a lot of views on the few fall items that I've listed. I guess that just means we're in between seasons and that a month will change the ballgame quite a bit. It's hard for retailers at this time of the year when they are trying to push summer stuff out the door and get people into a fall mindset. They really push "back to school" to drive people in the right direction.

I just noticed that ebay.de and ebay.com isn't allowing me to filter my searches with "new without tags." Are people not allowed to list items under this category anymore?

When buying, never under-estimate the ability of users to make spelling mistakes. I've picked up several nice pairs of "Brouge" shoes quite cheap, for example.

 

When selling, remember that a high-quality picture is worth a thousand words

100% don't count that wasted then fistbump.gif I'd take 30 = remove one neg feedback every time, hell I'd spend an hour on the phone if I could have gotten it removed. What was your "reason"?

Zenga Suits, Vinyard Vines ties used to be $, but now the "Brands" tab on item specifics page kinda kills that

The "Brands" field is a two edged sword for stupid sellers though.

 

I'm watching a coat at the minute... the label pics say Aquascutum, the description says Aquascutum... but the item specifics doesn't have it, and nor does the title of the sale!

 

So anyone searching for it by brand or name won't find it. But I spotted it. And I have no concerns over taking advantage of stupid people.

I have a seller that I follow that buys his clothing from one of the highest end men's stores in NYC, and he has absolutely no idea what the brands are that he buys.  He consistently lists his items under the "store name" rather than the brands, and I completely take advantage of it.

I had eBay emails from the buyer (who left neg feedback without talking to me first) stating he had misread the listing and asking to send him feedback revision request. The buyer never followed up with the feedback request. Had to go through three reps before they took it off. One rep clearly had no idea what she was doing and asked me to contact the buyer and have them call eBay to get it removed even though she was looking at the emails.

This is a little off topic but since it's going on ebay I thought I'd start here.
This is from a Boss suit I picked up. I'll included measurements of course but what the hell size is this tagged?
What is "102"? Being Canadian I'm inclined to think that this is 102 cm which equals 40.25 inches.
Thoughts?

You'll also see these types of sizes in pants. I believe you would call it a "long" (slim?). Here is a quick table I found that might be able to explain it better than I can.

Thanks HansH. Since it's Made in Germany I thought you'd have some insight.
