Refunded the item + return shipping. I think he wants me to pay for the original shipping too. Is there any grounds for that?

Only if not as described. If it was just a size or buyer's remorse, he shouldn't get return shipping.

Does the 25% off mean that's how much of the shirt is missing?
post #24274 of 31126

just got this message from a buyer (of course AFTER he sent in a best offer that was accepted) - 

 

I have just noticed that the fastener on the collar strap does not have a Schott branded button stud. This would be unusual since they appear on all their jackets. That triggered me to research the Schott label inside the jacket and cannot find a similar one use by the company, nor any records of them manufacturing in Spain.... I am now concerned as to the authenticity of the jacket.

it's for the item above.  not sure how to respond or if what he's saying has any validity to it.

Anyone else noticing this? I just read somewhere that Ebay is not forcing sellers to offer holiday returns, but it still looks like it's showing that in the Seller Dashboard. Has anyone spoken to Ebay CS about this recently?

WTF. Why even bother listing something like that?

Sounds like the buyer is fishing for a way to get out of their purchase. Tell them to cancel the order - can almost guarantee a problem buyer. That's what I'd do. Looks real and legit to me.

really? i'd be extremely skeptical of this...

 

why would schott manufacture a cafe racer in spain? 

 

why would they not brand their buttons? i've had schott's with no interior tags but with branded buttons (zip out liner was missing)

 

i'm not casting shade on anybody here, but how does this look real and legit? find me another made in spain schott and i might consider it legit, otherwise... all of em i've seen are made in nyc. I'm not the buyer, btw.

 

EDIT: were it me i'd dig a little bit more on this... i see that the zippers have an "S" on them but it still looks funny... if you decide to relist it might help a buyer to see that the zip pulls are branded. but again, i'd make sure it's legit, but that's just me. peace!

Schott seems to be "in your face" about being made in America. I've only seen a few of their pieces, but all were made in America.

The current cafe racers are made here, it seems odd that older ones would have been made overseas.

I've seen Schott not made in USA a handful of times and those are the ones I pass on. Either way I'd accept a sale cancel on it - if not legit then so be it - was not aware of anyone making fake Schott leather jackets.
post #24281 of 31126

i'm sure the point is well taken.

 

i guess i would just add that it might be the buyer is shooting straight with a legit issue - rather than finding any excuse not to go forward. if it turns out he's right then the problem is the seller's, not the buyer's, and he's saving himself a headache.

 

i know there are a few shitty buyers out there, but that pen writes both ways. worth a check imo.

I've had Schott not made in USA, some of their more "non-classical" designs especially but they are usually in China or something.  Never seen Spain and the logo just looks a bit off.  Usually when they do the NYC its N.Y.C.

 

Schott customer service is usually pretty responsive and could probably help.

Quick question on recent zegna and pz sizing.

Is the euro size one size "up" for us size. IE if the tag says 52R, is the equiv US size 42 or 40?

Everything looks ok on my end. I offer 14-day returns and I haven't changed anything. I certainly will not be offering the ridiculous holiday returns.

I think an IT 52 could be labeled a us 42, thiugh it may fir a bit slimmer than a typical us 42. Certainly not a us 40. When you get up to it 56, thats when it gets wonky, usually equating to a us 44. Some brands like isaia and kiton are cut so slim that 52s really are closer to a 40, but not zegna in my experience. Don't know about pz.
