I uploaded a dozen last night and it was the easiest time I've ever had. Not sure what's up with those server errors.

It came with a few holes in one shoulder and the inside of one arm torn. I'm considering getting it reweaved, but I've never done anything of the sort. Is it worth it? Also does anyone know any good sellers on Ebay for those of us that aren't so financially inclined? Thanks for the help in advance!

The lining issue could be an honest mistake, but the moth holes...throw it away or return it. Contact the seller if the holes were not disclosed, although if you have to pay shipping then you won't gain anything on the return of a $10 item which may cost $10 to ship. A BB orphan is not worth reweaving.

If you search diligently you may be able to find sellers on SF who will help you out with reasonably priced stuff. Maybe even Brooks Brothers if you are lucky.

Not ebay, but I got an ebayesque question from an SF member: is Brooks 3 inch tie much larger from Brooks 2.75 inch tie? baldy[1].gif

Tell that to Spoo...

That was my point. "He" referred to the other seller, sorry for the ambiguous pronoun.

For a question that simple, I'd reply by asking him how much larger he considered 3 inches than 2.75 inches.

^ Or tell him "It's 9% larger."

If those holes weren't disclosed, I'd consider asking for a return.

Reweaving will run you $40-50 per hole. Check out http://www.fabricreweaversusa.com/ There's also Alex's in LA, but I've heard they're more expensive. Be patient, the process takes time.

You can send your item to both FRU and Alex's and they will fix and send back all for one price.

Ebay's just a waiting game. Know what you want, know your budget then pounce when you find something you like within your budget.

As others have said, 100% not worth it and post up the Ebay item number and you'll get some better advice as what to do with it...return or toss in trash. Also what size are you?

Im surprised no one has called him out/advised him about buying a pinstriped orphan too.

OK gents....any info would be great..... this just came in on consignment along with 5 other Brooks Brothers suits and I am told it was bought in a Brooks Brothers store.....did some research and TAL is a HUGE HUGE HUGE clothing manufacturer, but how do I go about listing this thing on ebay?

Sadly for this young man, the fish he must currently fry are of a larger variety.

Brian, TAL makes BB's non-iron shirts and probably all their made-in-Thailand SCs, too. That's about all I know. I'd guess that one probably came from the BB clearance center in NC, where you can find all kinds of odds and ends like stuff BB makes for other brands, etc. Can't give any advice on listing, it though.

You are probably correct about it coming from the Clearance Center. I have seen that label on samples.

eBay is a joke! Won't remove negative feedback from a buyer that couldn't read, message clearly shows he retaliated for me not refunding money due to being illiterate. They really need a better system that levels the playing field, right now buyers have all the power..
