They are just fucking with you because you used "Licenced" in the listing instead of "Licensed". :hide:

Please add this person to your block list: buena-suerte

 

Will  attempt to contest you on your measurements, make really rude and uncomfortable comments and attempt to extort feedback.

 

This person just ruined my night.

How can he still has 100% positive feedback since 2001?!?  Ebay rating system needs to be updated really

He's only been a buyer. Ebay hasn't allowed sellers to leave negative feedback for buyers for quite a few years now. Ahh, the good old days!

Backup your auction templates if you use Garage Sale. A card on my iMac went bust and none of my USB ports worked. I took it to Apple and the repair was going to cost $600, so I just bought a new computer (mine was 5 years old). Because the old computer no longer has the ability to use a keyboard or mouse, they are going through a roundabout way to transfer my files onto the new iMac, and I'm desperately hoping the user files come over in a way that allows me to recover my auction templates.

Garage Sale support said that if the user files are transferred I should have my templates. At one point I thought I had copied and pasted my code into a word document and saved it, but I can't be certain until I see what was transferred over to the new computer.

I tend to not get emotional or take it personally with bad eBay transactions, but that dude dug deep.

You can report buyers for extortion though right?

Really sorry to hear that! I think we've all been there, try your best to mentally chalk it up to business/life and move on. I tell myself to quit thinking about getting burned by something as soon as it's been completed. I.e., as soon as I refund a crazy return in PayPal, I say "well, that's done. It's out of my account and mind."

I only take a look at a buyer's feedback to see what they've left for other sellers, that's the most helpful piece of information you can get from it.

I thought I read a while back that someone is keeping an excel or word doc with a list of banned bidders, where can I find that?  I also have another to add to the list leighanmurray

 

She won bidding on one of my wife's old purses and hasn't paid or returned messages. She was $1 ahead of the next highest bidder who in the mean time already bought another purse and is no longer interested... back to square one.  Her rap sheet of non-payment is long and distinguished, just wish I would have seen it ahead of time.

You might want to reconfigure your/your wife's Buyer requirements under Selling Preferences. If this person has as many unpaid strikes as it appears they should from the feedback, they wouldn't be able to bid on my items in the first place. I'm set as strict as I can be, which is blocking anyone who has at least 2 unpaid strikes in 12 months.

Didn't even realize that was an option - already changed it going forward.  I'm still new around here and new to selling on ebay, so I'm getting my sea legs.  Thanks for the advice!!!

i agree. i think it would be fair to call this a boucle twill. i also think you could get away with calling it a ragg twill.

 

 

i'll add that - imo - it's sometimes best not to cut things too finely, else you can get caught by somebody else's perception of what *these things* mean.

I too agree with you both, when he was asking what to call the blazer I was just figuring he wanted a descriptive word for the appearance of the color since, as he stated, it's not tweed however it looks to be tweed, which is why I suggest Mottled due to the irregularity in color and tweed like appearance however apparently lacking the tweed like characteristics. However I didn't look closely at the actual fabric itself and finish. Although this would be a very subtle example of a boucle fabric, I definitely would agree with you guys as this possessing characteristics of a Boucle woven wool. With that said, the way boucle is produced, it isn't capable of creating a sheet of fabric with a standard 3x1 twill weave. For the most part Boucle is looked at as a fabric weave finish just as twill is, or herringbone, chevron, etc.. However there are examples of boucle woven twill, but to this day I have never seen an example that isn't a broken/irregular twill weave, it's just the nature of the fabric. but of course, I haven't seen it all nor do I know it, just my 2 cents, while agreeing with you guys as well.

 

 

All that said though, for the pure sake of marketing and selling the garment, I would still stick with Mottled. Boucle is mostly used in womens garments and I wouldn't use it to describe a blazer but that's just me.
