Christian Dior and Loro Piana?

Legit check? Seems real to me, but I found a fake Burberry in the same store so I'm cautious. Good construction, no eagle logos. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Question about shipping a tie to an APO address. I usually ship ties first class in a 6x4x4 box (thanks Wes!). Seems like there are customs forms associated with APO/FPO addresses. If so, the forms would be too big to attach to a small box. Should I look for a bigger box? Or just ship it in a priority flat rate envelope, given the unreliability of mailing to APO/FPO, which is also something I've read.

 

Thanks!

There is about a 99% chance that no extra forms will be required. I ship ties frequently to APO/FPO addresses without issue. You will be able to click a link to acquire the necessary forms. However, it is very common that once you input the requested information, it will inform you that no additional forms are necessary. This has been my experience... yours may vary.

Thanks. I originally thought hopsack, but it feels so much softer and finer than the typical brooks brothers hopsack I just figured it to be something different.

In case anyone needed a reminder, always call back if you don't get the desired results when dealing with eBay.

 

Backstory: I listed something that had alterations which I noted and included measurements, they left negative feedback because of fit.

 

The first lady (seemed like she was american) was actually pretty rude about the situation vaguely saying I didn't do enough to aid the buyer. I even got her to admit that it seemed like buyers remorse and the buyer was taking advantage of the system, yet she didn't budge. So I hung up, called back and got a foreign lady who was joking with me about how that buyer didn't seem too smart and 2 minutes later told me that the feedback would be removed in 24-48 hours (with Ref #). :slayer:

 

It ALL depends on the person you get. 

 

Edit: it's already gone

Just a heads up... Sometimes the CSRs will use this tactic to get you off the phone. I have had them tell me the 24-48 hr business only to have nothing happen. If they truly want to remove the feedback, they will remove it in less than 30 seconds. She is probably going to appeal your case to a supervisor. It may or may not be removed. Either way, I fully agree with your tactic of calling until you receive a satisfactory outcome.

Makes sense, but I just checked and it's already gone! Plus I got a reference number from her in case it didn't go through.

I have two nearly identical items, same tag measurements, same model. However due to shrinking/stretching they are slightly different measured sizes....

 

How strict is eBay's duplicate listing policy? Do I need to wait until the first one sells before listing the other? Or, do I just need to make the titles different enough?

 

Thanks for any tips here all!

 

eta: Found it!

It looks like if I make the listings different enough I should be okay.

Awesome! When it comes to CSRs, in most instances, I prefer to speak with an American to prevent any language barriers. However, that being said, some of the foreign eBay reps are amazing!

I am interested in this too. Hopsack is a basket weave and this is not a basic hopsack. The best way I can explain the difference is that the diagonals are more pronounced. This weave is common in older Oxxford blazers and I have only recently seen it in some made in Thailand Brooks Brothers Cambridge fit blazers.

i know it's a tall order but it's eye-crossingly hard to see what's going on with that pic. with that in mind:

 

if it's all wool and fairly fine, then dobby weave is probably the best description. feel free to pm and we can get into this shit a little.

 

here's something likely similar: http://www.indochino.com/product/midnight-blue-dobby-twill-suit

those ladyboys are very lenient on "don't worry, we will protect you" in buyers remorse cases but when it comes to anything other than that they are certainly sticklers.

I had just got done responding to a message about a return due to fit because, as usual, they didn't read the measurements, when I get this on another item:

 

I appreciate the quick shipping on the sweater, and it is very nice, but it is black and gray. Usually this would not be a problem for most, but I do not wear black. How would you like to handle this, because unfortunately I will not wear it?

 

I listed this sweater never questioning the color. It was obviously navy and every picture showed it be. About ready to lose it at this point, I let myself calm and respond with how the pictures are representative of the true color and suggest he compare it in natural light to something he knows to be black. Then I sit back and wait for the NAD case to open. Here is his response:

 

I looked at it a lot closer, and I think you are right. It is a very dark navy. I will keep the sweater, I am sorry to bother you. Thanks.

Faith in eBay buyers restored, if only til the next bogus case.
