They said (in broken english) that they have nothing to do with Attolini and to keep the Barbera name pure and unconfused with competitive tailors, they protect their trademark against any other names being used in tandem.

agree. but I think its specific to LB - they just got bought out or changed management or something similar, so Im sure they are just cleaning things up.post #25024 of 3045112/6/15 at 8:23amQuote:Originally Posted by kbadgley84

also, just a heads up for you guys - if you are selling any Luciano Barbera tailored items that are made by Attolini - DO NOT list them with Attolini anywhere in the description. I recently had an item taken down from Vero and had to go through lengthy discussions with their legal department in Rome - who spoke about as much english as I did Italian - to get it removed. I finally did but they did tell me that they are proactively looking for these to take down.Quote:Originally Posted by SpooPoker

Have had this happen a few times from Vero and they "put your account on hold for 10 days, etc etc" which is scary at first but I was always able to just call in and explain to an eBay rep what the situation was and they just remove the hold and say how to/not to list it (without Attolini, etc) and it goes back up no problem. Did have one company complain because I was selling a sample makeup thing and they said it was not for distribution or to be resold (kinda odd) so was considered "fake"
Should note, from speaking with ebay Vero only gets involved when the company actually files a formal complaint with ebay. So if Polo or Corneliani dont file a complaint with your specific item number then ebay is not going to go and start removing items.post #25025 of 3045112/6/15 at 10:43amQuote:Originally Posted by mormonopoly
I've been selling primarily on etsy for a few years and I love it. It takes a while, but you can get much better prices for the unspectacular stuff and the fees are way lower. Most importantly, the buyers are so much easier to deal with. I've had hundreds of transactions and can count the number of issues on one hand. It's so much less of a hassle than Ebay.
Do you think Etsy would be a good option for vintage department store / trad-type stuff? (Vintage Brooks Brothers, Hart Schaffner Marx, Southwick, etc.)post #25026 of 3045112/6/15 at 1:39pmQuote:
Yeah, I think it would be a way better option than ebay, as long as you're patient. You might sit on things for months or longer, but you'll get much better prices. There are some very successful etsy stores that focus on that type of clohting.post #25027 of 3045112/6/15 at 3:56pmQuote:Hell yes. Speaking from experience here. It does take a while but it works much better. Load it up with key words. Etsy lets you use brands as key words, even if unrelated to the item. Go ahead and slap a Brooks Brothers key word on that JC Penny item. Cricketeer or Corbin? Add J Press or Chipp.
Etsy does definitely attract artsy/bohemian types, so theatrical/cinematic/televisual tags are also a big plus. Mad Men, etc...post #25028 of 3045112/6/15 at 4:42pmpost #25029 of 3045112/6/15 at 5:04pmQuote:Originally Posted by FLW

Won't do it automatically, will hang out for weeks if they never return it, plus they'll still be able to return it 2 weeks later if you don't call and close it out. You can close it out 5 working days after return approved.post #25032 of 3045112/6/15 at 11:09pmpost #25033 of 3045112/7/15 at 5:10ampost #25034 of 3045112/7/15 at 6:01ampost #25035 of 3045112/7/15 at 6:04am
Nice, Doc! I'm curious as to where others operate in terms of profit margin. I know there are plenty of variables that can skew the numbers, but I'd still be interested to see them. I'm at about 50%. I don't do free shipping and I'd estimate that 85-90% of the items I sell are true thrift.
