Obviously they aren't visible when the shirt is worn, but I imagine value suffers at least somewhat due to the writing. Wondering if they are still worth the time. Thanks in advance for your help.

No way to know how much the value is impacted, unless you offer 2 identical shirts but one has a name written in it, and see what they sell for. If they're nice, I've listed them, noting and photographing the name. Same for dry cleaner name tags ( which at least can be removed with a bit of effort ).

In my case, it was a navy chino that I listed as "blue." The return reason was super vague though without indicating what the discrepancy was (ie too dark/light). Will have a chat with CSR and report back.

Color descrepencies can be tough to fight with SNAD claims. I've used the approach that I only stayed "blue" successfully. I may have an advantage since a lot of my work experience and education revolves around color theory.

Tips on how I should go about it? CSR seemed to think if the point of contention was something like 'too dark' it would be more or less moot because of variations in how the color shows on diff screens.

Update on this clown, with only one day to send the suit (the deadline was till the 26) now he messages me saying he will keep the suit and leave good feedback for a 20% refund... how would you handle this? I'm inclined to refund (since I slipped in the first place) and get over with, should I ask him to close the return and leave good feedback, and then refund?

Again, block this guy, precog377.

Asking for good feedback as a precondition to giving a refund might be against the rules, so I would phrase it differently. But yeah, definitely wait for him to close the return before giving a refund.

If you only described the color as blue, and the picture shows a blue item, and the buyer received a blue item; your listing is accurate.

He's stating an irrelevant fact in stating that the color is darker than it appears on screen. If he had his monitor set too bright, this would always be the case.

Call back, you will be able to win this.

I know that the pictures you provided in the auction were of the actual physical garment that you shipped out. Looks like the Navy blue color that camera effects produced in the photos is some what different than the real color perse. The real or actual color is different from the photos.

I messaged him and got this vague answer. Do I need to just flat out ask him if it was lighter or darker before I ping the ÇSR?

winner is you.

Zing! Talked to another CSR and they took all of 30 secs to come to a decision. They said to them it was pretty much a textbook case of buyers remorse. Thanks again fellas.

Don't refund. Call eBay now and have them check the messages. He's extorting you.

Militaria experts?
I bought a 1969 Alpha Industries M-65 in very good condition, and I'm pretty sure I want to flip it. (It fits quite well, but like I need another coat?)
Prices on the Bay for vintage M-65s are all over the map. Is that just the market being fickle, or are there particular features or qualities that I should take note of in the listing?

Figured I'd throw this here because it worked like a champ.  Bought some dirt cheap AE lizard tassels today and the tassels were all crazy wonky.  Wrapped them in wet twine sprayed the bundle a couple times to make sure the tassels were wet.  They dried a couple hours later, unwrapped, and they're perfect.

I just spray the tassels and put tiny black orthodontic rubber bands on them. However, you can't argue with success. Those tassels look great now.

So I picked up a box of the free eBay tape. What do you all think? Does it cheapen the Flat rate boxes to use the eBay tape to seal them up? Does it invite theft? I have like 8 rolls of the stuff but haven't used it much yet.

 

Thanks for any thoughts anyone has on this. :-)
