thats none of your business. u UNDERSTAND ENGLISH, i already say no zero feeback bidder!! u should have least email me 1st,but u didnt and u still talk to me this rude.what is this!!! if u email me these nonesense again, i will report to ebay and they will deal with u!!!

Just to be clear: his auction text stated clearly "no 0 feedback bidders" but you still placed a bid while you have 0 feedback, correct?

Does anyone have any experience buying from "Nitr-o Sartorial Fashions" on eBay? He has some interesting items advertised for decent prices. His whole eBay store page design and color seem a bit odd for someone selling fine clothing. The garish colors and name "Nitr-o" make me think more funny cars than fine clothes. I won't hold his bad web page design against him if anyone has had some positive experiences with him.

Thanks

His auction text was written in really poor english so I didn't read it in very great detail and failed to notice the no 0 feedback. It was an honest mistake which I freely admit to, he freaked out over it though and started sending me crazy messages and ultimately reported me to ebay. Very strange behavior, but I suppose that is why he has an 85% positive rating out of 14 transactions...

your bid being rejected was probably for the better than anyway.

Zipangu Treasures in Japan. Excellent communication, great items (from whom I just today got my SDA SD-105 and a "tombo" tenugui - you can never have enough of those ). Items were dispatched fast and as described.

+1. Fast and friendly communication too (despite the time difference).

Hopefully he gets his shopping service back up soon. Fees look reasonable.

Some of you seem a little new to ebay; as an experienced bidder and seller, let me give you a couple of pointers. If you place a bid, and it appears no one else is bidding until the very last minute, then you've been outbid by an 'auction sniper' program, by someone like me who wants to win without bidding the price up over the course of the auction.
If you use your bank account via paypal or atm/bank card to pay for your auctions, you're essentially unprotected, as you're spending your own money and nobody at the bank really cares if you've been had. On the other hand, if you use a credit card, it's the bank's money you're spending, and they have some motivation to take care of refunds etc. Trust me on this one.

Also, as a general rule, if you're buying a designer clothing item from Hong Kong, Korea, or anywhere in China (perhaps most places in Asia), there's a very good chance you're being offered a fake. There are two reasons for this;
1. China doesn't respect international copyright laws as a matter of national policy. Therefore, there are no legal repercussions for a seller/manufacturer of fake goods.
2. Many of your favorite designer brands have their stuff made in China/Korea, or prototyped there. Thus, manufacturers there already have the patterns, fabrics, designs, etc, on hand to make more when the designer is finished with their order. They simply make more, and sell 'Dolce & Gabbana' suits on ebay for $200, which represents a massive profit for them. If you look carefully at the tags, you'll invariably find errors in grammar or spelling, even if they are very good reproductions. I don't know why this happens, as they copy the originals, but they never get it quite right in my experience. Especially when it comes to holographic security stickers!

My best advice; be skeptical! But act in good faith. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. But then, I've bought Vivienne Westwood suits for $200, so you never know!

I don't like the page design, but he (or she) is an good seller with and has some nice and interesting clothing at reasonable prices.

I recently bought a pair of pants from *dressforless*, listed as a size 32, with an actual waist measurement of 32. In fact, the waist measured 30.5. I contacted him & he agreed t orefund my payment; I sent the pants, & when he received them, he claimed that the listing was correct (I measured the pants 3 times--I can guarantee that it wasn't), and that he therefore would not refund the $12 shipping he had charged (the actual shipping cost was only $5). I had to file a claim with Paypal to get my $$$ back & finally did get it, along with some very nasty messages from him.

I am sorry to hear that , I did buy some pants from him and he charged shipping and handling for 3 pants separately but them all in the same box.

When I questioned him about the unusually high shipping, here's what he said: "Our price for shipping is $12. This includes the cost of shipping, a portion of the rent, heating,lighting, insurance and person that does the shipping." Last time I checked, businesses factored utilities, rent and wages into the price of their items. This practice violates eBay's excessive shipping policy, a policy that eBay unfortunately doesn't seem to enforce.

I purchased a beautiful navy Isaia sportcoat from him, top of the line item. Prompt service, no problems at all, I would/will buy from him again.
