From someone who has had long discussions with the fine people at Luciano Barbera's legal office - it is 100% NOT kosher.

Good stuff! I'll probably just let it ride out on auctions then. I mean if 5 people are willing to pay that, maybe they'll get it cheaper(or pay more). Appreciate all the insight. You should link to your Patagonia guide in your signature to make it easy for me to find haha.

Oh fine, I added the link back in my signature. The two most recent posts on my blog are about Patagonia.

I've begun compiling my spreadsheet of Patagonia style numbers... I've only done the jackets from two different catalogs (Spring 1988 and Fall 2001. So far, I have 110 models accounted for. Damn, these folks are prolific...

Need some urgent help.

 

Sold an Anderson&Sheppard blazer to an international buyer. Clearly mentioned it was a bespoke item, so please pay attention to measurements. Got a return request saying it doesn't fit ('..maybe because it was a bespoke jacket..'). Buyer seemed nice so I accepted the return. Instead of going through the returns process, buyer prints out a standalone DHL label, doesn't mark it as a return. DHL is holding the package until I give them $95 for customs charges.

 

Am I fucked here?

I'd say no.  If he's on the hook for return shipping, he's on the hook for customs.  If you deny it, they will send it back to him.  That's one hell of a customs charge, what was the value of the package?

No but depending on the situation. You obviously accepted a return but did you also agree to pay for return shipping? If not then let it sit there until he pays for return postage. If you did agree to pay then obviously yes customs are on you. That's what's hard sometimes about international sales. I why I still continue to use the gsp cause I only have to make sure it reaches Kentucky for delivery. Sounds to me like he knows what he's doing and trying to get you to flip the bill for his mistake. I make everyone who wants to do a return do it the formal way through ebay. They get there label and a tracking number and it's easier to deal with when something comes up.

That is more than just customs charges. Seems that he has found a way of deferring all return shipping fees to you. Make sure that you didn't agree to pay for return shipping. Usually, if it is just a "doesn't fit" issue, the buyer pays all return shipping expenses.

Yeah, doesn't fit, def not your problem.

Thanks, guys.

 

No, I clearly mentioned to him that he was on the hook for return shipping, plus I wouldn't refund him the original shipping. He accepted. The jacket sold for $300. In the return details he said 'I wish you had said somewhere this was a bespoke item', to which I replied that I did mention that in the listing.

 

I guess your reasoning makes sense. If I don't receive it, I can't refund him. Though, I'm not sure what language to use that diplomatically says he'd better pay up for DHL custom charges. Feel bad for the guy. $300 jacket plus $35 shipping plus $125 import duties for him, plus return shipping, and now this. I told him it might make some financial sense to sell it himself and use my pictures/description. He still went for the return option.

What's the best way to deal with folks who ask "what's your lowest price?" on BINOBO? Tempted to tell him to just make me an offer.

Ignore.

Lol just looked at his feedback and he's definitely a reseller. He's asking about a pair of Jordans and everything he's sold has been Jordans in different sizes.

Edit: spoke too soon. Most of what he sold was the same size as my auction with a few oddballs thrown in.

I'll ignore. If he wants to make an offer he can make an offer.

Yeah, it sucks, but he's a douche for trying to make you pay for the return.  I had a person return something, and put in the tracking number I used to ship the item to him as the return tracking, so it appeared the item was already delivered back to me.  Turns out, a week and a half after he received, opened, and decided to return the item, he boxed it back up and wrote "return to sender" on the label.  I finally got the item weeks later, after eBay closed the return in my favor.

My usual response is "What's the most you will pay for the item?  If what you want to pay, and what I want to get for it are close, we can make a deal."  I always keep it cordial, every once in awhile people actually make a reasonable offer.  You can also respond to the message using ebay's "respond with offer" option.  Go to the high end of what you want for it with your first offer.

I usually respond, "Just make me your best offer. All that I can do is accept it or deny it".

Is this a 56 or a 56 L? My google fu and searching styleforum has been weak tonight...

 

Is that "Stat" field for Long or Regular Status? The sleeves are 26" and the length is 32.5"

 

This is an old Zegna of course...

 

 

Thanks!
