My Trusty eBayers!

 

Women's or Men's?

 

P2P is 20.5" but this could have shrunk as the tag is listed as size L. I'm seeing a lot of the "Sportswear" line in reference to Men's clothing on eBay...

 

also, the wool is not "soft" but almost crispy, like it has been dry cleaned a lot. What is a good way to describe that?

 

 

 

 

Thanks!!

Definitely a 40r measurment. I would save yourself the hassle and block him. From my experience it won't turn out good. The measurements are there just cause they don't match the factory means nothing it's used.

Gotta be mens, sportswear diffusions are almost always for men. And it's wool, it must have got into some hot water and if that happens forget about it, this shrinkage I'm sure didn't help the hand of the wool however over dry cleaning and all those chemicals involved would have done the most damage. However I also believe that the original product starting out most likely wasn't of the highest quality of fabric anyway. This was from the licensed years, so it was outsourced and cheaply made. There really isn't a soft way of stating that fact. You can try to word it like saying it has the hand of a fine Shetland wool (which means nothing cuz that just means its rough) which would probably piss someone off, but I don't know if you can dance a round that fact while stating it too.

When I have unlabeled sport or suit coats I base a lot of the regular, short, long off of the sleeve. I do this mainly because for the not so smart buyers on eBay this is what matters most. So if I have a 32 BOC but a 23 sleeve, it's a short in my book. Yes... I know you can't (or maybe can but a lot of work/money adjust the boc). This has been my solution anyway, but do as you wish.

That is not a good practice. Regular, short, and long are based off of BOC. Some people have a long torso and short arms. They still need a long coat. If a coat has a 32 BOC, you need to list it as a long and then call attention to the actual sleeve length in the body of the listing.

It's the situation of your screwed if you do, screwed if you don't. I used to get a lot of returns based of sleeve length from people who buy off the rack. They notice sleeves, and don't notice the length. I used to handle it your way, but I ended up still eating return after return for sleeve length issues. The hours spent on the phone with eBay was a pain, so I switched to this way. I have personally experienced much less hassle this way. Although I agree with what your saying. 

 

If an item has a size listed something other then measured, I will notate that.

Someone just bid on something of mine.  They have zero feedback and joined ebay yesterday.   I have had a few buyers with zero feedback buy and/or bid on my stuff and it worked out fine.  No problems.   But, this person's user name is 

 

 

In the middle of that is Data M Bot.   Am I being paranoid?  If someone or something was actually a bot, would they put it in their user name?
