So, someone is asking about the length of my jacket being a tad shirt for a tagged Regular (30") and I agree. Then again this is a su misura line.
Anyway, i measured the boc and then measured to see if there is any extra length for him to lengthen. I did this by measuring 3 parts (l, m, r) of the back vent. There seems to be about 2". Is this the right way to measure?
Also, should I measure to see if there is any extra length on the front? How do I do this because when I felt for any extra material I couldn't find anything
Hi k4lnamja, that would have been me. Thanks for looking into this for me. I've been on the hunt for a 42R E.Z. Milano for a little bit, because I liked the fit in the store. I think the stock length is something like a 32, and the tailor at the EZ store said it didn't need to be shortened (i'm 6'1"). That one may not be the suit for me, if it's a big deal or big $$$ to let it out the length (never really heard of this being done, although I'd like to imagine it's possible)post #5063 of 288909/5/13 at 8:23pmQuote:
Is that on the navy Brioni? I think cutting it would make a run in the fabric. Better to accept an offer from me and let me spend time massaging the snags out.post #5064 of 288909/5/13 at 9:23pmQuote:
You buy one of these and have at it. Super useful for fixing snags where there's a loop of thread visible. I've fixed a few jacket snags now with one, it really is a miracle worker. It has a knurled/textured end that, as the needle slips through, grabs onto the loose thread and pulls it back down.post #5065 of 288909/5/13 at 9:26pm
You mean this?
Also, am I the only one who packs everything while listing? I can't imagine keeping inventory hanging or even folded on shelves.
These are the boxes, medium flat and regional A. Scotched taped closed for neatness, I pop the tape, reverse the flaps, pull the adhesive backer and put a piece of priority tape on it, slap on a label and throw them in the basket I take to the post office on my way to work in the morning.
rows and rows of pants, pull the tape, close them up, slap on a label that covers the seam (usually no extra tape unless there are some seriously big pants in there, or it's going international)
Not pictured... shoes, shoes, shoes...shirts.
The things that were paid for before 8am get labelled and shipped every day. Takes about 1min per package.
I can't seem to use Pay Pal's multiple label print thing, there's no Regional Rate box or Legal flat rate envelope choice. Anyone use a tool to buy postage and print multiple labels at once? I would love it if my auction description showed up on the mailing label too.post #5066 of 288909/6/13 at 6:55ampost #5067 of 288909/6/13 at 7:00ampost #5068 of 288909/6/13 at 7:01am
It's been a long time since I made the switch, so I don't have any numerical data, but I can tell you I saw a marked increase in sales. This is partly due to the fact that if you meet Top Rated Seller criteria, eBay gives you better listing search placement.....and a nice little discount each month on some of the fees.post #5069 of 288909/6/13 at 7:06amQuote:Originally Posted by Evil Abed

I have one of these. Works like a dream! Found it accidentally at Hobby Lobby about a month ago. It is hard to keep track of if you set it down somewhere, so I keep mine in a sleeve on the handle of my seam ripper.post #5070 of 288909/6/13 at 7:07amQuote:
I made no attempt to determine whether it increased sales. If sales increased then it was by a very small amount which was washed out by normal seasonal fluctuations. I have been happy to observe that returns have not increased by a great deal.
My reason for allowing returns was to avoid the negative or neutral feedback from the occasional dipshit who orders by labeled size and doesn't understand measurements. It has been successful in that regard. I charge a small ($10) restocking fee.
