Hello. I received the suit today and it is really a very nice suit but the pants were too tight. My tailor checked and the pants were apparently tailored already and all the fabric by the waist was already taken out and there is no more fabric for the tailor to let out. The pants were marked a 34 and I figured there should be 2 inches to let out, so no problem. But there is no more fabric to take out since the size 34 represents the size after this alteration. Can I please send the suit back to you for a refund (less your shipping charges which you can deduct)?

I think the buyer is being quite reasonable and fair. If a suit is represented as NWT is a reasonable assumption that the pants would have some material in the waist for letting out.

I'm not sure why I noticed, but then, I'm listing stuff at 1:00AM on a Thursday...

 

Why does the Country/Region of Manufacture dropdown on the Ebay selling manager list include Antarctica? I wonder how many listings get created with Antarctica selected?

I was really close from Oct on, but I kept missing it by less than $1000.

Apparently the number one export for Antarctica is telephones. Hmmm, Whodathunkit

Also, it seems they eat a lot of chocolate covered lobster there too.

So if the waist had been let out to 34 that likely means they were originally 32 (assuming they had the standard 2 inches to let). The jacket is a 42? That would make the suit a drop 10? Sounds to me like you might have mismatched pants.

I don't think they're mismatched

Congrats, Brian & Wes! This prompted me to check and realized that I've hit "Silver" status! But damn, "Gold" seems like a long way from here!

Thanks. Took me about a year to go from Silver to Gold. I never thought I would be able to do it. Now I have my sights set on the next level. Probably won't be this year, but I'm gonna try.
