The age of the shirt has little bearing on its condition when contrasted with other factors such as how often it was worn, how it was cared for, did someone stain it, etc. I could have a suit from the 70's that's in better condition than a suit made a year ago. In the grand scheme of things, it seems like a nonsensical question unless it's related to a vintage/collectible item.

I think the "how old is it?" Question sort of encompasses all of what you said just people don't know how to communicate properly

Setting apart the fact that "current label" was mentioned in the listing, thus, indicating that it was a recent item, I don't think that the "how old is it" question is entirely horrible.

 

E.g., one of the things I occasionally search for is PRL sport coats. When I see a photo of a jacket that looks like it might have a low buttoning point, or it might just be the camera angle, I'm immediately on the lookout for label pictures. If I see that it's a PRL label from the 70s, I assume that the buttoning point is not down to a camera angle issue, but is actually a low buttoning point.

 

So, yes, in the case of an already stated "recent" item, it's an odd question. But I don't think it rules out the usefulness of the information in all cases.

So... Just had an item returned undeliverable as addressed. I shipped to the buyer's eBay address. What happens now?

If you look at pictures on the Ralph Lauren website the shoes do not say "made in italy" and the ralph lauren logo is in cursive

Look real to me, there is just way to much detail for a fake. The RL in the tread of the shoe, I would guess it is a prior year model hence the difference in the script (also a color that isn't available now).

Yeah but that is from the same seller haha. Thanks guys! Are they worth the price? I guess I fail to see how a $425 shoe would be $75 regardless of it being last years model.

Not at all. I let these go to unpaid item cases. Then I relist the item the following weekend. People need to understand that bidding on items on Ebay is a serious matter.


Good call, I also get a lot of PM asking favors even when they won the bidding

Person finds a few pairs at Marshall's/TJ Maxx/etc. on clearance for $39.99. Puts them on eBay for $75 or $85 and basically doubles their money quickly.

Send a message to the buyer explaining what has happened. This is NOT YOUR FAULT. Do not let the buyer convince you to mail it back to them at your expense. If the buyer wants to eat the shipping cost of re-sending the item, so be it. Remember, you upheld your end of the bargain. Now, just put the ball into their court to see how they want to handle it from here. Make sure that all messages are handled through eBay for the sake of documentation.

The reason it isn't in cursive is because they are not Purple Lable, they are Ralph Lauren collection

I am a sucker for eBay felons. Another person added to my buyer requirements exemption list. lol Believe it or not, once I have added someone to that list, they have never let me down on payment.

They're worth whatever they will sell for. Seems like the seller has no problems moving them at this price, so that's that.

 

The inventory in these kind of stores is very location specific. People find Brioni, Zegna, RLPL,, RLBL, Isaia, BB black fleece etc. at marshalls and tjmaxx all the time.
