I'd just like to repeat the positivity that goes around about sartorial solutions. I ordered a blazer that seems to be canvassed for a very good price.

One would be foolish to overlook sartorial solutions.

Now here's the curious thing: After I paid, the seller immediately left me positive feedback. Why in the world would someone selling a stained, wrinkled tie do that?

I'll contact the seller, and hopeful we can get this straightened out. If not, I can leave negative feedback without worrying about retaliation. I've never felt more empowered as a buyer!

He played his trump card right away, while you still have yours, so you are in a good position. Hopefully it can be straightened out.

As a seller, I leave feedback after the buyer has left me feedback. Not because I can use the threat of a negative to my advantage if a problem arises, but rather because I've heard of buyers trying to extort sellers through the use of neg. feedback.

Of course with Ebay allowing sellers to make 100s of accounts from the same IP address leaving negative feedback does not seem to be a big deterrent for cheaters.

I was bidding on a pair of RLPL shoes (black Piersons) being sold by GVH on eBay. As of this morning, I was the high bidder.

I just logged back into eBay to see where things stood and the shoes are gone! The buy it now feature wasn't active anymore b/c there were active bids on the item, so that can't be it.

Has this ever happened to anyone? What's the deal?

(And where are my stinkin' RLPLs???)

This has been reported a couple times during the GVH RLPL blowout. I suspect he is getting direct offers for the items and selling them.

No, it's far more likely there are simply items listed in error (wrong size, item, not in inventory...) and the auctions are cancelled when the error is discovered. Many people have received the wrong items. They are not taking offline offers.

Tonight I accidentally bid $1,450 on a tie, when I meant to bid $14.50.

I won the auction.

I certainly hope that the seller at least offers to waive the shipping fee.
post #148 of 659
OMG, well that should not be a problem. In the Ebay regulations it is stated that such an offer can be made invalid.

I contacted him and mailed it back the same day priority with a tracking # and he signed for it. He never refunded the money for the jacket or answered any emails.

This is about as slimy as it gets , I thought it might help someone else to be careful of this seller. It is guys like him that ruin it for everybody.
Huh...this guy claims to live in my hometown, which is rather small. I'd suspect that he just buys stuff when it comes into the outlet store.

I have had good experiences with Italiansuitwearhouse (ISW), and of course honest*goods (now www.ehaberdasher.com).
