Can anyone comment on whether this Brioni tie is genuine?

I have yet to see a fake Brioni anything. Brioni knockoff from biancoBrioni, but never a fake. It looks genuine to me!

I was hoping there was an easier way!  Glad to hear you're not doing it with garage sale, I am allergic to mac, and I really shouldn't be since my entire industry is Mac based..  Also, if I remember earlier conversations in this thread, you have the same Nikon D3100 as me.  Are you still doing a lot of post processing, or have you figured out a way to  get those great shots straight off the camera?

 

I use the square photo when I can for the 1st image in the listing and then rectangular images for all the rest. I think the square image lets you shower a larger item in the search page as it fills up the entire area.

That's a great tip!  I now have to think about making sure my first image is square.  It's the (not so) little things that can really make a difference!

Damn.  Writing code or using a program?

I have the D3100, the picture are a lot better now that I am using the auto white balance and I leave it set in "A" mode. I still do some post processing but have it set up to run auto so it is saving a lot of time. I'm down to only manually editing about 10% of the photos from 100% before.

 

I use dreamweaver so its a program but to get it to do what you want you have to manually edit some of the code. They have a nice split screen so you can see what it's doing as you do it.

We have a 4 bedroom house but with one room dedicated to a gym and the other a guest room, that only leaves 1 extra room other than the master for me to use as an office. There are no basements in 99% of houses here, so you've really gotta have a big pad to have any real storage space. I think we are around 2,400 SF.

Transitioning to a tabletop mannequin has really saved me a ton of room. Definitely the single best decision I've made with my setup. I guess I don't technically need anymore space, but if I were carrying the inventory that some of you are, I definitely would.

 

I dig rearranging spaces to make them more functional as well.  Today I counted how many times I went into different rooms in order to list something, well as pack & ship something that sold...total was 4 rooms each time.  Waste of time & energy - I need to get some "lean" up in this joint.

 

Not many basements around here either - I've got a 2-story with living area up and garage + the empty room down.  Time to put it to use I think.

It is both the measuring station and the mailing station. all boxes, tape, tissue, bubble wrap, are under it. 

 

Total investment was about $20. Oh. forgot to say that I clap it to saw horses on each end to keep it from moving. 

 

The thing against the wall is a zip-close garment storage unit, where I was keeping a lot of winter stuff during the summer (and now filling with lighter weight stuff for next year).

I like your door & saw horse idea, though I would need tall saw horses as bending over the table I use now puts a crick in my back.  So I could either do back-strengthening exercises, or get a taller table (guess which I am planning on).

Looks real to me.  A bit older, but real.  Here's a recent one I sold last week, showing all the markings - only thing slightly different is the "n" in Brioni, to my eye, and that could just be an update by them over the years...and of course they got rid of the little metal medallion thing a while back (thankfully - it reminds me of Donald J. Trump or Steve Harvey pieces).

But I like the fabric.

 

(Sorry - double post.)  That sounds familiar as well - or maybe "tonal plaid"...along those lines.  Well, I already listed it as "shadow plaid" so we'll see if that gets any bites - thanks!

Are you saying Bianco Brioni is a knockoff, or that the only knockoff you've seen is Bianco Brioni?

Thanks again, I have some work to do.

I've had a transaction "Pending Payment Through PayPal" since November 1. What gives? How long until I can cancel the transaction and relist?

Thanks, I guess I just haven't seen that style of label. It's not like I make it a point to handle $200+ ties everyday... :hide:

Ok I have a situation, a buyer purchased a Belstaff jacket from me , he's in NYC so there was sales tax he kept bitching about the tax so I refunded the tax, he receives jacket and files a snad claiming its fake, I personally bought this jacket at barneys sale and have a few more that still have tax , his reason for being fake is that it's not waxed, usually I take returns but this guy had pissed me off more than once already, is it worry fighting? I can probably dig up receipt from barneys but I sold item as nwot, I know if outcome is not in my favor I lose some seller rating bullshit, but I have the truth on my side, any advice? Btw here is the item, Item # : 301008758725

Yeah, it sucks.  I have a couple recent I'd rather fight, but chose to go the easy route.  Pissed me off for a few hours each though.

Got a guy who didn't read the listing or look at the pics, bid high and won. 

 

Asked me to falsify customs documents (I reported him)

 

Now the item doesn't fit and he demanded all of the money including the customs charges to be refunded before he sends it back. Or else he will open a paypal case against me.

 

Obviously I said "Fuck No!"

 

Paypal case opened.....I was prepared with 11 pieces of evidence against him.

 

Wish me luck.

Did you actually say "Fuck No"? :lol: That dosnt help your paypal case....

 

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but HE has to prove delivery back to you to be refunded. They might put the funds on hold until the item is delivered back and if delivered you have to pay the cost + initial shipping, but never have to pay the customs charges OR the return shipping.

 

Never dealt with the paypal dispute people but ebay people have gotten a lot better in the last 2-3 months when I needed to call and speak with people about this same type of situation.
