I recommend reading the book How to Win Friends & Influence People while waiting outside for the exchange. Also should be sitting on the chair appropriately, following up The Definitive Book of Body Language of Allan Pease.

 

Smooth ebay transaction assured.

First BBGF 7 Fold I've seen. Nice quality 

 

The only place that I have seen them in the wild is at Marshalls and TJMaxx. They are usually in the $15-20 range. I have picked up a few. There is a local consignment store that has several BBGF (non-7 fold) for $12 but I am waiting for a price reduction before I purchase them. They do seem to be very well constructed.

I prefer to be caught reading Archie and Jughead comic books. It practically guarantees a comfortable space cushion between you and others.

With my new tie listings last night, I decided to add (read: shamelessly copy) Spoo's and Brian's verbiage about pre-owned items and how they could have additional minor runs etc. that have not been noted. I get a message about a rt 7 fold tie asking me if I can guarantee that the tie is flawless because for that money it better be flawless. I replied that I did not see any runs or stains on it, and if I did I would've noted it. Guy still seems unsatisfied ('Your disclaimer makes it seem that some tiny flaws may still be present and nobody wants that with a hundred dollar tie').

 

How to respond? I've already changed the location of the disclaimer in the terms and conditions rather than prominently in the item's description. In this case, the fabric is a typical rt fuck-you jacquard fabric with so much going on, one would have to look with a nanoscope to make sure there aren't any imperfections.

Nothing more you can do, if he buys it great (or probably not great honestly), and if not, someone else will

 

PS - By making the representation in the message that you "did not see any runs or stains" my guess is that if you end up in a case that message would void any disclaimer you had in the listing.

Thanks. I qualified it with '..but I still may have missed some tiny flaws, which clearly do not affect how the tie knots or hangs. You also have the full length picture of the tie where you can zoom to examine more closely'.

 

But yeah, I don't want to go on record saying something is flawless which would be so easy to refute in a pre-owned item.

@txwoodworker It looks like people are bidding aggressively for that item

I am again confused. Is this real? or there are that many idiots on Ebay (some with lots of feedback)

RIght. If there is damage to the item it does not matter that the seller did not notice it. In other words, a seller will not be able to transfer his problem (damaged goods) to the buyer by using some special wording.

Totes fake.  There are ABSOLUTELY that many stupid users on ebay.

 

Also, pic for user:

These hands:

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

As fake as that Burb jacket.  Which is also fake, and might I add, fake.  In closing, let me state for the record, fake.

Actually I've had the verbiage in the listing itself "might have flaws, etc, etc" work if there is a minor issues not noted in the listing. Obviously is there is a HUGE hole then of course, but something small the special wording works. What I was saying is that if he has the special wording but then goes and makes a different statement in the ebay messages that would nullify the special wording in the listing.
