Got my first negative in eight years of selling this month. As I posted previously, the asshole tried to return the coat I sold him (for $60 measly dollars) FIFTY (50) DAYS AFTER HE RECEIVED IT, citing "closet fragrances" on it, which were evidently my fault since I stored in a space bag in a dresser drawer for a year before I sold it. Naturally, I refused the refund in an apparently misguided attempt to take a stand. Days later, he posted negative feedback. I reported the buyer, and spoke to some guy in eBay customer service (no small feat getting someone on the phone) and he refused to remove the feedback. I must have paid close to $1K in seller fees last year and this is how eBay protects their income sources? Total bullshit.

I finally relented, offered the guy a refund in exchange for removing the feedback, and he refused to alter it, letting the official request lapse. A week later, he decides he does want the refund but can no longer remove it, as there is only one opportunity per transaction to remove negative feedback, which is via a 3-day seller request. What an absolute douche.

Meanwhile, I can't post negative feedback for him, though he's clearly the worst type of buyer, and sellers should be warned.

The feedback model/mechanism is beyond flawed; rather it is seriously broken. I can't see myself selling much if at all on eBay in the future, and from what I've read here in this thread, I am not the only seller taken behind the woodshed and summarily fucked by eBay. How long until a boycott?

Never... where else are you going to find that demand in one spot for your used clothing...

I have a killer Paul Stuart suit, dual vent and ticket pocket, flat front, in this weave.

I'd call it basketweave, but that's just descriptive, not based on any true nomenclature.

Ok, one more shog[1].gif

I don't know why I bothered.

Have you considered a RETURN POLICY WITH A RESTOCKING FEE?
Rather than deal with the hassles of this and especially ebay, I sold the shirt on ebay tonight for $40. With fees shipping costs, I took a loss of about $20. Over and out!

And he did in fact resell it... using my pictures. Copyright infringement. His sense of entitlement will never wane.

You stole my pictures. That's theft and copyright infringement (FYI copyright is a big deal in the USA, although the Chinese don't seem to mind violating it). Congratulations on the sale.

The shirt was purchased from Saks, a USA based retail store. If you have to convince yourself that it was intended for some other market to feel good about the way you have conducted yourself throughout this transaction, then I am yet again left feeling sorry for you. Cheers.

Maybe I went too far frown.gif

In light of the FAQ on the TRUE RELIGION website, I felt I had to find out more about the size discrepancy since you seemed to avoid the issue.

As to the one picture -- Sue me!

TTFN

And from his listing:

TRUE RELIGION Western Style Shirt

I have been looking for a good vendor of western shirts and decided to try to find one on eBay. Never had a True Religion product and since they are expensive, I took a chance on a good price with a maker other than my usual favorite LLBean where the quality is exceptional and a size 2XLTall fits perfectly.

So for about the same price as LLBean I bought ITEM NUMBER: 121062004566 with the expectation that a 3XL would work. Seems a lot of the imported from Ceylon and China stuff runs to the small side even though clearly marked. Take a look at the original listing for more pictures etc.

I checked the True Religion website and found this FAQ:

"I bought your product on eBay, is it authentic?
We have been getting hundreds of complaints from customers who have purchased on eBay (or other auction/web sites) in regards to counterfeit products. To be sure that you're not buying a counterfeit product, we suggest you shop on our website or from one of our authorized retailers."
My thought was to check with True Religion to see if I bought a knock-off but from the sound of that it seems they don't care?

MY BAD: Caveat Emptor ("Let the buyer beware") prevails once again. The Seller has a no return policy and the eBay Buyer Protection Plan apparently protects the Seller in this case meaning, I guess, that simply stating the size is good enough. In this instance, I am stuck with a new shirt that I like but cannot use so I am re-selling it at a loss. Gimme forty bucks and it is yours with free shipping and handling. Next time I will look to make sure the item is not a slim fit garment and to check the Seller's description for a size definition.


The shirt tag says $146 ... so this looks like a good deal for someone a bit skinnier than me.

Funny thing, the True Religion web site has this: FREE SHIPPING & RETURNS ON ALL US ORDERS

Now that's my story and please, no returns (LOL) ... if you are familiar with True Religion sizing, there should be no problem.

Sorry HansderHund, I went back on my word to move on frown.gif

Just a heads up.. there is a thing called "follow up feedback". You can leave it as both a buyer and sell for items you both sell and buy. Most people dont know about it, BUT even if he leaves you pos, neut, neg feedback he can still go back and add another comment in. Just saying.....

I thought there was a way to reply, couldn't find it. Thanks for the link.

Not too worried about if he leaves further feedback. I started out just trying to show him the differences in sizing between the two brands because he seemed honestly convinced I cheated him... then I became an ass. Oh well lol8[1].gif
post #2323 of 15761

Couple of weeks back on the Thrift bragging thread someone had posted a Brioni jacket without the brand tag and with only the size tag.  Yesterday, I picked this jacket at a local thrift store.  I want to list this on eBay but since there is no brand tag, can I state its a Brioni?  Is there any way to smartly list it so that I dont get into trouble once its sold?

 

Thanks

 

 

 

post #2324 of 15761
Yes, you can list it as brioni. Just make sure to note in the auction that the tag is missing and you should be fine. Photograph anything you can that identifies the jacket as brioni.

If there was ever a guy who deserved to be punched in the face...it's the douche who bought that shirt from you.

As you accurately pointed out, it's the entitlement that I find so irritating. Clearly the world revolves around him and his 3XL llbean shirts.
