post #7366 of 16760
I'm taking all of my denim in and getting the perfect fit. Lately the newer versions have been looking sloppy to me. I feel like they either stretched or my legs got skinner. Anyone with feet bigger than a size 10/43 have experience with a hem less than 5.5 inches? I'm taking my stretch pairs in. I know my raw won't go over my ankles in anything less than 5.5

all black leather santiag boots from ss15 fit a bit narrow.  As I walk, I feel my pinky toe gently pressing against the front toe area.  It's not too bad but I couldn't imagine walking over a mile like this without it beginning to bug the crap out of me.  The boots are barely worn and I am wondering if they will stretch out some?

Black leather boots do stretch over (a lot of ) time. Usually though they don't stretch in the more sturdy areas, as the toe tip usually has a toe cap/stiffener inside the leather.

Wanted to ask 2 things: 

1) The quality of the suede on the cropped Jodhpurs - how is it? When I look online, many of the used pairs look a bit frazzled - what has the experience been like for folks in terms of durability?
2) I've found them particularly difficult to hunt down at a reasonable price in my size [44/45, ideally in cigar suede, but also black leather] - anyone here trying to offload theirs?
man, I didn't realize how lucky I was to get my black leather ones new in size 44 for 500 on grailed... Really glad I bought them now

A terrible thing has happened...one i did not want to believe would happen among my fellow SLP lovers but I have been scammed out of $825 buying used Wyatt Harness boots.  I do not want to go into all the details here unless people would like to know just how incredible of a level of trickery and deceit this person used in order to trick me.  

 

Thank god i did not do a personal payment and I have already escalated the case with paypal so i will be receiving a refund (eventually).  

 

Can someone please tell me how to handle this within Style Forum?  I would like to make sure that my fellow SF folks are protected and aware.

 

the seller is: TIMPOWERS

 

He is a complete scumbag and i cannot believe that i have been duped.  I am pretty savvy but this person takes scamming to a whole next level. 

 

If someone can help with the process of handling this with SF or maybe a mod will see this and help me out?  That would be fantastic.

 

I am still looking for Wyatt Harness Boots 43-44 Suede (OCHERE or NUT).  The OCHRE FW 13 version preferred so please let me know if you would like to work something out on that front as well but I will be taking all necessary steps to make sure this doesn't happen again...so NO SCAMMERS welcome. sheesh.

I think it would be good for all of us to know how this happened so we can try to prevent something like this happening to ourselves (if you're willing to share). Sorry I can't be of any help, though. The closest I've been to a scam was quickly resolved with a PayPal dispute.

I placed a WTB ad for the Wyatts (without specifying the season i wanted)...i thought that maybe the seller who had more information for me would be a good sign that he knew about the boots thus it would be a little easier for me to tell if he was some bullshit artist who didn't know anything about SLP.

 

A day after posting the WTB add, I got a message saying he had Wyatts and what was my budget....i wrote him back saying i want to see pictures and i'd like a description.  He then sent me extensive pictures (including pictures of the shoebox and sticker barcode from the box) and also indicated that they were FW 13, etc.  To me, this was a good thing...he seemed to know his stuff.

 

I spoke to him all week long about doing this and voiced my concerns about being ripped off or scammed.  He assured me that he was not a scammer and just wanted to sell his boots.  He continued to send pictures and also mentioned that he had the boots re-soled at a place named ARTURO's in Beverly Hills.  I am in LA so the fact that he knew my cobbler a block away from the SLP Rodeo store made it seem even more legit...my guard was down at that point.  When i asked about the legitimacy of the boots, he said they were absolutely authentic and that if I had any doubts, he'd be happy to do a refund.  Although all the pictures he sent with the box and dustbag, there was no way these were fakes.  I felt pretty good about this transaction....

 

So then the day came to send funds...I told him that I was ready to send funds as soon as he confirmed that he could make it fedex that day and provide overnight shipping like i requested (i sent him a pre-paid fedex return label) so all he had to do was print it out and take right to fedex and it would come right to me.  I was ready and looking forward to it.  Every question i would ask over email, he would respond within a few minutes.  Very patient and legit...he agreed to make it to fedex as soon as I sent payment.

 

I then sent payment via paypal and told him to confirm receipt of payment ASAP...I heard nothing for about an half hour...not too big of deal...then an hour passed, still nothing.  I then began to panic.  I took one of his pictures that he sent me and put it in a reverse google image search.  To my dismay, i clicked a cached link to an eBay auction that ended back in june....there were all the pictures he sent me.  Not just that, but there in the description of the boots was even a little blurb about the shoes being re-soled at ARTURO's in Beverly Hills.  I was stunned and shocked and called paypal immediately.  Even though the seller told me he would be shipping from San francisco and gave me a legit San Fran address for the prepaid shipping label i gave to him, upon talking to paypal, they told me this seller was in fact in Thailand.

 

I have emailed the seller repeatedly but know its a lost cause.  I really don't think I could have handled anything differently EXCEPT:

--Run any images sent to you/posted by a buyer in google reverse image search to make sure that these pics are in fact native to your seller.

 

--Ask the seller to send a 'tagged picture' of the items but with a piece of paper with today's date and his or your name.  (i did ask the seller to do this in the beginning, but his response was something along the lines of: "just trust me man, i just want to sell my boots"

 

So there you have it...a couple of mistakes on my end and a lot of crafty bullshit on his and now i am out $825.  I guess i wanted these damn FW13 wyatts so bad, that i believed what i wanted to believe...I certainly don't think i deserve this in the slightest but i guess I just thought on style forum it was a lot of really great people just trying to help other great fashion obsessed people locate those coveted items no longer available by retail or online shopping.

 

I should be receiving a refund from paypal eventually (although we all know how quick they are to respond when its someone else's funds on the line).

 

Hope all of this helps...sorry for the long post but I just wanted to share the facts with all of you.  Any tips or feedback is appreciated.

 

Best,

Jared

It happens. The key is to use PayPal and not gift the money.
post #7374 of 16760
Damn I'm sorry. I know exactly the pair you're talking about, I remember reading that description and it was for those wyatts for sure. I love PayPal for their protection but the return time on these scams is definitely frustrating. I'm just worried about what would happen if somebody sends me a fake package sometime. What would I do in that situation?...or if somebody claims they didnt get the package/the package was fake when I sent the real thing.

Wow terrible story, but sounds as though you acted quickly with PayPal so you should be in the clear.

I feel like a dinosaur here, but how does one conduct a reverse image search for items such as this? I can envision it being extremely useful.
post #7376 of 16760


it is quite easy actually but i only started doing it recently:

 

Go to the url below and a google search box will appear, there is a camera in the search box...click the camera and then a pop=up will appear asking you to either upload an image from your computer's files or drag and drop the photo into the search box.  Extremely useful for these sorts of things...just wish i did it before dropping nearly $1k to some lady-boy thai hustler (no offense intended, please take a joke all)

most of all, always pay by paypal invoice and you will always be protected

 

so scammers have the legit shoes and everything but will send you a box full of paper instead. theres no way to know whether you will get scammed but paypal always has your back

other option is to try buying from FB group SLP and ask the people for 'legit check' before hands

Another method you can use (if you are using Google Chrome), right-click the image then click "Search image using Google" or something to that effect.

Keep in mind just because the search yielded no results doesn't mean it's 100% legit.
