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.
This. The likelihood that this buyer will go over your tie with a magnifying glass looking for the tiniest imperfection is 120%. Sell it to someone else.
