Couldn't find this makers tag in the tag thread, but it looks familiar. It's a made in Italy Mr. Sid jacket. Anyone know who it is?

Nothing else out there will come close to USPS 1st Class Intl rates...

Mid 90s at latest.

Honestly dude, just take a shot with and let a little more light in so the contrast isn't as extreme, of the linings, make the statement that "there is staining on the interior lining of the pants," and call it a fucking day. It surprisingly effects market median resale prices by roughly 20-30 bucks, tops. However if you choose to highly detail and describe what in fact these stains are from etc... well this will not help your cause.

 

NOTE: Not condoning over saturation of the image to mask the stain, the stain has to be photographed and apparent, more light will just make your listing appear little less offensive to the eye, the message will still be made honestly.

Well in efforts of full transparency, I'd start by representing this as a Suit Jacket opposed to a Sport Coat, an item that it apparently doesn't happen to be. The pattern, perhaps a tweed base with a bold tonal stripe overlay?

 

EDIT: The base fabrtic design almost appears as if it's trying to mirror an exotic skin, it appears to have scale type effect actually...this ones tough.

Yeah the scaly effect was what made me think it was a sport coat rather than a suit jacket. Do the stripes trump that? Below is the tag which doesn't give much more info

@leisurewear Personally, if I had an obscure pattern, I wouldn't sweat too much about identifying the pattern exactly by name because not too many people will search that keyword anyway. I'd use kw's that will get you eyes on your listing and describe the pattern close enough.

Yeah good point. Thanks!

Had a buyer open downs not seem authentic case. How will this affect my rating?

Latest "tracking" on a package that went to USA:  "Verifying recipient's address: Possible delay"

 

That doesn't sound good.  I'll wait and see what the next update is.  I did email the customer pro-actively, and told him I see this in the tracking, so told him to keep me updated from his end, and also verified his address again (same as what I used), and he confirmed it's a house, and not some apartment or other unit.

 

Hoping it gets to him with no issues.  The shipping label also has the buyer's phone number on it, so I assume they would try that number, if there was a problem.

Have any of you upgraded to GarageSale 7?

 

I've gotten this window a few times, and am curious as to whether it's an improvement. I'm also a bit miffed that the upgrade is $19.99...

GS V7: Different interface.  Some things greatly improved, other things take some getting used to.  Test drive it, install separately from GS6 and import some listings to play with it, $20 is a bargain for a program that runs your business.  Your mind would be blown if you knew how much a month I pay for the SAS at my main company.

The $20 hit me because every other upgrade I've been around for was free. I spend far more on Photoshop and Illustrator for side jobs.

 

 

One thing that caught my attention was not having a differentiation between auctions and templates. How does that work in reality? I have a pretty refined process for reusing templates.

Every time that I think about upgrading to Apple and GS software, I read something like this and it reminds me of how little I understand computer and software technologies. :confused:
