Yes, but s/he is willing to give full measurements and descriptions if you email. One of my favorite eBayers, even if I know he is just raiding the Fayetteville Brook's clearance center.

I'm unpinning this and moving it to Buying and Selling, where it will be pinned there.

Just another warning as I have posted this before. I bought a tie to check it out as I have many many Brioni ties from over the last 3 years to compare with. These ties are without a doubt FAKE.

Ebay is apparently changing their feedback system.

What kind of changes?

Any examples?

How so?

madmax69trojan came in for praise a long while back in this thread. I have to say I'm pretty unimpressed. He quoted me 2.5 x selling price to ship a tie to Australia. I pointed out that shipping is related to weight and size, not the auction price, upon which he gave me the brush-off. He currently has a Charvet tie for about $19. Using his formula, even if the price doesn't go up at all, I would be charged about $45-50 to ship a tie. That is ridiculous pricing, totally unrelated to the real cost. I can't see myself doing business with such a person.

Shows you what feedback's worth.

Here's a request for advice: I purchased a pair of shoes more than two weeks ago, paid for them via paypal immediately after winning them. I never heard a thing back from the seller. I waited until about a week ago and then contacted them asking when my shoes would ship. They wrote back saying they ship everything within 2 days of shipment but wanted my name and zip to check it out. I sent that back immediately. It's now been a few days and I have not heard back from them. I'm thinking my next move is start getting a bit stern with them, so far I've been very polite and patient. Anyone have advice?
post #205 of 659
I'd suggest giving them one more polite message -- "Just checking to see if you had determined the status of my missing order." Better to err on the side of patience, if you want the shoes. Plus, it allows you to document the good-faith efforts you've made. But if they don't respond fairly promptly, then I'd ratchet it up a notch.
post #206 of 659
I sent a polite message, he replied a few hours later saying he was still looking and to please be patient. He also said "I apologize". Very concise and still polite, so I guess I will keep on waiting.

Some of the best?


Without a doubt - http://myworld.ebay.com/ireneling/ gets her stock from Blooming dales and I have gotten many Baker, RL, Mason's etc.. items that are beautiful. Fast shipping too.
Also xStyle has been my number one. They get stock from YOOX and I cannot say enough good about the fair treatment. Alas Clair has left so I have not had many dealings with the new management. But getting a $3,000.00 Jil Sanders leather blazer for 150 or those incredible Costume National $400.00 t-shirts for 10 bucks is as good as it gets.

Almost forgot the worst e-Bay seller - VIP_COUTURE. Ridiculously high shipping rates and inflated retail costs are two points that are pure proof of his dealings.

I must say that it was the most unplesant experience I have ever had buying on line. I was sent incorrect colors, wrong sizes and on and on.

He will never get another penny from me.

I've been browsing today and seen these two auctions from mptobis that worry me a bit: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/155-NWT-Nicky...QQcmdZViewItem http://cgi.ebay.com.au/140-NWT-Turnb...QQcmdZViewItem Both are advertised as NWT but, to me, the photos in each clearly show that each tie is damaged. The seller has made sure the damage is shown, but he doesn't mention it in the text at all. My suspicion is that this is all to offload damaged goods on an unwary buyer, and then claim to have been upfront because the damage was shown, albeit not pointed out. Strictly speaking I guess the buyer would have no comeback, but I think this indicates a somewhat deceptive seller that I'd hesitate to get involved with.

What's wrong with the second tie, other than being kind of rumply? Maybe I'm not seeing it.

In any case, that does seem pretty borderline, looking at the first one.
