Dear Seller
I will double check , but it appears that the size "L" and the pit to pit dimension you wrote in your description ARE WRONG and the real pit to pit lenght instead to be 21 inches = 53,3 cm is 44 cm !!! this means that I cannot use it AT ALL 
could you pls tell how can be possible ?? what you plan to do before I'll decide to open a claim ?
THanks for a prompt answer

i know it's a 21" pit to pit because i wore it and measured it. if it was a 44cm pit to pit i wouldn't have been able to get it on or button it up.

plus it is tagged a Large.

I've asked him to send me a pic of the coat with a tape measure showing how he's measuring and he said that he would do it on friday evening, so i'm waiting but feeling not good about this.

any ideas? tips on what i should be doing?

Ask for a pic of the coat with the tape across it.

Fun times... I just listed my eleventy-first item of the week (since Monday morning). Tomorrow should give me a personal record for most listings in a work week. I'm only nine short. :slayer:

That's what i did. he made an excuse about being busy but said he would do it tomorrow night.

he also got pissed when i addressed him as BR which he kept signing his messages with. Apparently it means 'best regards' .

That feeling when you are preparing to list a gorgeous Jay Kos sport coat only to realize that, once placed on the mannequin, one sleeve is 24.5" and the other is 25.5". :fu:

(anyone want a nice 44L Jay Kos for the price of shipping? lol)

That is beautiful, and you should list it with each arm measurement. Someone with shorter arms can have the longer sleeve shortened.

Not so easy with working cuffs.

Ahhh I missed that part... They would have to take it in at the shoulder or have a hack with the buttons at the edge.

I have a pair of Alden Shell Cordovan Tassel Loafers Style. Based on the style number #563 these are Color #8 Shell Cordovan.  BUT, these loafers are a very rich mellow brown color instead of #8.  

 

This raises a few questions for listing them. 

 

Did Alden have a different style # for the other colors besides black?  Or have these shoes just aged into brown?  

 

When I list these I am wondering if I should call them Cigar Shell Brown (which is what they really look like) or color #8 even though they don't have that reddish burgundy (what lay people call cordovan) tone? 

 

Here's a pic.  

 

The picture is slightly darker than in person, but they really are pretty dark brown instead of what I think of a traditional "cordovan" color.

I would avoid the use of "Cigar" in the description. That's a particular color for Alden shell and these shoes are not Cigar, but have obtained a similar color from built up polish, it appears. IMO, it's ok to clarify in the description that the color is #8 but appear closer to Cigar, but I would leave it out of the title.

They look like #8 to me and I'd be surprised if Alden had changed the style numbers in a stock model recently.

I would definitely not use "Cigar" in your listing. You'll likely piss off more people than you attract.

If I could add any feature to eBay, it'd be blocking 0 feedback buyers. Recently, they've accounted for ~10% of my sales... and none of them have paid. 

 

\rant

Annnnd I just ate crow. 5 days into an unpaid item case, one of my 0-feedback buyers paid for their item! :)

Thanks to you both, good advice!  

 

I don't think the color is because of a build up of polish.  I used Saphir Renovateur and cleaned them. They don't have built up polish. After the renovatuer, I didn't use any polish at all, just lots of brushing and elbow grease. I was just reading about the various Horween colors and they said that #8 will darken to a deep brown just with age.  

 

I e-thrifted these for myself and had them restored at B. Nelson.  I was hoping that it would tighten up the last a little because they are 11D.  Sometimes I can wear 11D in the aberdeen last, but unfortunately for me, they are still just a little too wide (I usually wear 11.5 Narrow (C or sometimes B).  So, I am listing them.  A resole (including replacing the welt) is not very good economically for resale, but I guess its a lesson learned.
