Hey guys, woke up to my first case opened this morning. Was hoping for some advice before I respond. FWIW I am a new seller but long time buyer with about 200 100% positive feedback. Buyer has about 2000 feedback 99.2% with 2 neutrals and one negative over the last 12 months, the rest positive.

 

The listing text is as follows:

Quote:

 

"Up for auction is a great j crew ludlow suit in charcoal gray Loro piana 100% wool super 120's fabric. Brand new these suits are $600+. You can get one in great condition here at a fraction of that price. Tags seem to indicate this is from the 2011 catalog. It is dual vented and a modern slim cut that j crew is known for. Please let me know if you have any questions, I answer quickly!

Measurements . . .

I do not accept returns, unless I screwed up major in describing something. Measure your best fitting garments and compare!

Let me know if you have any questions. I also combine shipping for multiple purchases."

 

 

In his offer the buyer asked the following question, however I accepted the offer so I never got a chance to respond. He paid immediately and I shipped:

 

"Buyer message: Is this the slim fit or classic fit? Can you give me the item #'s in the tags of both the suit jacke tand pants? Thanks!"

 

 This morning the case reads: This item doesn't match the description in your listing.

His note: "Pants have multiple snags, and the cuff is not sewn in properly. Can provide pictures if necessary."

 

I don't remember any snags whatsoever, and I actually provided a picture of the pant cuff in the listing:

 

$_1.JPG

 

Unfortunately the best picture i took of the pants is here, but cannot see any snags:

 

 

In addition, my listing says that I don't provide refunds, although it does seem to indicate for sizing, not something of this nature. Should I request the pictures or simply offer the refund? Part of me feels that he may just not have received the fit he liked (slim or classic as per his offer notes) and made something up to get a refund.

 

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

Well, you can buy them but that seriously cuts into margins.

My volume isn't too large so I scrounge. Two favourite places: bookstores (like Coles) and independent grocery stores.Both places get regular shipments in fairly small boxes (nobody shipping books or cans of beans in 2' x 3' boxes). You need bigger boxes? Hit a liquor store.

I've taken to then unfolding the box and then re-asembling it inside out so that there's just plain brown on the outside.

Never had anyone complain but if they did I'd play the "environmental" card - recycling, and all that.

Have him return for refund and resell. JCrew Ludlow anything sells easily.

That's how I used to do it too.

 

Otherwise, if you are going to be doing a lot of the same size stuff, buying them wholesale online or even locally is the best way. There are a ton of packaging sellers on eBay.

 

The best deal I can find right now is on Uline, because they are having a huge cardboard box sale. Not sure if they go to Canada though.

Hey guys,

This might not be the right thread for this question, but help would be appreciated.

I'm setting up a USPS PO box for items; what size PO box should I get? Will be for ties, shirts and suits mainly. Any ideas?

Options are:

1 (3 IN X 5.5 IN)
2 (5 IN X 5.5 IN)
3 (11 IN X 5.5 IN)
4 (11 IN X 11 IN)
5 (22.5 IN X 12 IN)
post #8003 of 14539
I'd say option three. Does the PO hold the occasional package that doesn't fit?

5 (22.5 IN X 12 IN)

I'd recommend option 5. A USPS regional flat rate box is just over 11". If it's a suit that won;t fit, my stuff is going out in a 13x10x4 box. Wouldn't fit in any option but option 5. Especially if you got 2 packages on the same day.

I don't know as this would be my first po box. If for example I order an item that doesn't fit in the po box, does it get sent back? Or does the post office hold it for a few days?

I assume they would put a slip in your box to pick up at the counter.

That's a pretty hard thing to miss during initial inspection and all his pictures seem to go to hiding it. I would contact him, and if he refuses to do anything that isn't 100% in your favor, open a case.
