Yea I don't like people questioning authenticity, I never answer those questions

PSA folks... I just got this email, which somehow made it through my spam filter. Note that this is SPAM. Do not click on the links in the email if you get it.

Don't like to answer that question even if I know it is. Any suggestions?
I typically sell new stuff so I will sometimes tell them where I bought it and that will satisfy. Obviously I can't always tell where so I'll just say it's from a reputable department store or something and I know if it comes down to it I can always pull out the receipt.
With used stuff it's not a solution though. Sometimes it's enough to just say you guarantee its authentic.
Honestly I think its a pretty fair question considering the many sellers who knowingly sell fakes.

the one Fueco posted is 100% spam. Paypal would never send an official email from an @inte.com email address.

I agree. And outsole measurements mean even less. That's why I don't give measurements of shoes.

Bump for the day crowd. It's a Trafalgar belt but it doesn't have the leather description markings like some others I've had. 

 

(PS - sorry to bump this. I usually hate it when people do this, but I feel okay about it this time since it's me and not a different person.)

imo, resembles an outsized python scale

Any recommendations on a plastic sleeve that can store a tie rolled up while still being small enough to fit into a 6x4x4 box?

 

I got a message from a buyer who was happy with the tie itself, but upset at the way I packaged the tie (fortunately he still left positive feedback, which I'm grateful for - and honestly, I agree with him that it's not the best way to ship a tie).  I currently use 6x4x4 boxes which are pretty small, but I think they would be fine if I rolled them up instead of laying flat.  The biggest issue I have is I don't know what to use to cover the ties before I put them in the box.  Right now, I wrap the tie with tissue paper then wrap it again with a plastic sleeve to protect it in case the box breaks, gets a hole, gets water in it, etc., then I put it in the box folded almost like a U-shape so that it's not completely bent and creased.  

 

I've looked into getting some tie boxes from ULine, but getting those boxes would increase my box costs by 4-5x what it currently costs me.  Ideally, I'd like to use the current boxes I have, but get a solution to store the tie rolled up into some sort of plastic to still keep it safe while small enough to still fit inside the box.  However, I'm open to suggestions and if nothing else I have the tie boxes to fall back to.  Thoughts?

These work perfectly fine for me: http://www.ebay.com/itm/200-CLEAR-6-x-10-POLY-BAGS-PLASTIC-1-MIL-FLAT-OPEN-TOP-/111145792853?hash=item19e0ce3555:g:3hgAAOSw5VFWImGX

 

EDIT: I roll my ties and put them in those bags. Then they go in a 6x3x3 uline box. I have some 6x4x4 boxes that can fit 3 or so ties if someone buys more than one.

Here is an interesting and well-researched article on pricing. Some of it is definitely relevant to ebay sellers ($9.99 vs $10, free shipping vs charge separately).

I fold ties in half three times and then place them in a tyvek bag. This goes into a 6x4 padded manilla envelope. I have never had any issues or poor feedback doing it this way for 3 years now.
