Would this be made by Alden, Rancourt or AE?   Can't quite determine by the script.

Exactly. 'No major scuffs' can be interpreted in so many ways. But a picture is a picture.

 

I describe every imperfection I can find and also ask they to please see all pictures. I will then circle some of the flaws in the pictures as well. Only been dinged once for something that I indeed missed.

When the seller has called out imperfections, I'm generally less wary. It's when the seller basically says "the pictures constitute the description" I know I'm going to need to look at those photos on a desktop monitor at the highest resolution if I'm at all interested in bidding.

That style of listing screams "I know there's an issue, but I'm going to make you find it in the photos."

I can see that. By the way, if the defect is hard to see or photograph I either put a coin beside it or mspaint an arrow indicating the location of the defect. I just don't like to go on record with the declaration 'This item is flawless' because that would be so easy for a shady buyer to refute.

He shoots, he scores (within the character limit too!). Thanks, man.

I was under the impression they did it themselves. Don't they have a factory in Tennessee?

I have a nwt gitman brothers shirt up for $22 free shipping. This guy offered $12.50. I countered with $18. He messages me, "are you serious? Keep it" I said I will. Then he sends me this.


I just replied $18 shipped sounds fair and blocked him. It's been up for 3 weeks. Is that a long time now?

For Generation Y, it probably is. Some people are way to effing cheap these days.

Sometimes I think these folks are psychotic and they give the rest of us who like binobo a bad rep. (i enjoy negotiations when both sides are willing to play the game so to speak)

Heck, I love older gitman brothers buttondowns (vintage, not Vintage) and I'd be thrilled to get a NWT one I wanted for $18 shipped, seems like I end up paying around $18+shipping at a minimum for used ones. I mean, they're always in great condition and either a real staple color/pattern or a fairly attractive variation but they're still not NWT. I'd say ignore him.

Yeah. This one looks like a baseball jersey because it's white with blue pinstripes. I started taking best offers off my listings because people are frustrating. The items I get a lot of lowball offers on eventually sell for the price I want.
