I emailed Lordcolton as well and got a song and dance. Clearly he has overhyped and overpriced merchandise whcih I would agree should be avoided. Saw a 10 -year old Zegna suit he was hyping as $4K.

To add to the Nitr-o thread, I purchased aa wonderful Isaia cashmere jacket from Pete and have found him to be knowledgeable, responsive and honest in his representation of the item. I can get over the Nitro-meter and the layout. Anyone looking for Isaia should definitely check out his extensive inventory. Wish I could have bought a few more items from him.

I just saw something I've never seen before: the seller gave me feedback before I did. I bought a NWT BR sweater for $20 and paid immediately (I always try to do this). He left feedback for me after receiving payment. Nice.

This has happened to me a few times. I always try to be online when an auction i'm interested in ends (just so i can be sure i win it) and then pay immediately, generally before receiving the invoice. Anywho, i've had a few ppl leave feedback before me too... not bad at all!!

I also want to add that if you are looking for high end shoes, rusma81642 is amazing! I got a really nice pair for $31 shipped, Johnston & Murphys. They fit me great, and they're in need of just a little bit of Tender Lovin' Care, but they will turn out great with a few weeks of work.

I know prayerwarrior has gotten some flak from people on here lately, but I have bought a few things from her in the last couple weeks and both of them have been as described, great deals, and quite nice.

i believe he is the best in the history of ebay.

i have no affiliation with him.

I took a chance last week and bought a Paul Smith shirt from a seller with only 46 points and a 96% rating (Heck, I have even fewer points than that...but then I have a 100% rating). He represented the shirt as NWOT and then repeated it in the copy as NEW: WITHOUT TAGS. Silly me... I actually thought I was buying a new shirt.

The shirt arrived and I immediately saw that the collar was quite soiled. At first I was pissed...but then I figured that for only $17.50 (plus 7.50 shipping) I pretty much "stole" the shirt. I really like it and it fits great.

Here's the thing... When I first got the shirt I immediately contacted the seller and told him in no uncertain terms that I was upset, really upset...and why. But I also told him that I had no intention of going to all the hassle of packing it up and going to the Post Office to send it back (moot point...he doesn't accept returns, so he insisted). I asked if he'd be willing to refund me the $7.50 shipping costs to cover the dry cleaners and the gas for my car...and that I'd forget the matter.

But right after sending that message I felt bad about my response and sent him another message apologizing for showing any anger. I told him that I was simply going to go ahead and get the shirt cleaned. But I still asked if he could explain to me why the shirt was so soiled (and reeked of cologne, and was badly wrinkled).

His response was downright belligerent! He completely denied misrepresenting the shirt...and said that he had other time-stamped photos that he would send in to e-Bay if it was contested (he never showed those photos...and the soiled part of the collar had been cropped off of the photos in the listing). Mind you, this whole time all I was asking of him was that he "concede that he might have made a mistake" (my words to him). This was even after I sent him the following photos!



We went back and forth several times. I tried to be patient...he was non-stop aggressive. I finally gave up on trying to argue with him and decided to drop it. It wasn't worth the hassle. I happen to really like the shirt...and it was certainly cheap enough.

With this post, I'm "over this"... I'm gonna go ahead and take the shirt to the cleaners tomorrow. I'm sure it'll be just fine (the rest of the shirt is not soiled...and does look relatively new...except for the cologne and the wrinkles). But can you believe the nerve of this guy?!?! Not to mention stupidity. All he had to do was say... "I'm sorry about that."

BTW- I defintely learned a couple of lessons about e-bay as a result of this transaction.

Dennis, Sorry about your experience.

But the purpose of this thread is to name the sellers, so others might avoid your experience.

If the seller was abusive and non cooperative, he deserves to be named so others won't have the same thing happen to them.

Understood. I was waiting for the seller to post a feedback before I offered up his name. I strongly suspect that he was waiting to see what I would do before posting his feedback. After I gave him a positive feedback (more or less), he just now responded in kind, with a positive feedback for me. But based on the less-than-pleasant e-mails I received from him, I have no doubt that he gave that positive feedback reluctantly.

His ebay ID is orangegreggory ... Based on my experience, I certainly wouldn't trust him...at the very least not with any garment that he offered up as "NWOT"...

BTW- Last night, just out of curiosity, I googled his e-mail address.... and came up with only one (rather unexpected) hit. Based on his location in Texas, I have no doubt that this is the same guy. After the sour taste he had left with me, I couldn't help but think that this was pretty darned funny: http://www.imatchup.com/Man_Seeking_...ocCvrdNut.html

Particularly about fabric content (he says the fabrics are super 110s, 120s, whatever, when there is no proof that it is), and he is one of many that quotes absurd MSRPs. And finally, he is the type of seller that sells almost everything as NWOT and as "2007 Models", when clearly the items are not.

See this discussion in AAAC

When I Emailed him with my concerns, he basically said that even though he is lying, his buyers are still getting good deals.

I would definitely steer clear of this seller.

Here's his Toolhaus.org profile with 80 Negatives and Neutrals. Enough said!

I feel bad for the guy who won this.

Dennis -

Had a similar situation - bought a Jil Sander shirt advertised as 'mint' from an ebay seller (not parisvegas) that was completely faded, had frayed cuffs, and the kicker was the 1.5" rip in the front of the shirt by the third button. The seller had poor photos showing little detail, so I could not see these flaws in the initial photos. But for winning the shirt for less than $20 shipped, I would feel foolish returning it.

One time I had a buyer who won a $200+ Zegna shirt from me for $9.99. The fabric had faded slightly from being washed and pressed, but this was clearly seen in the photos and was not advertised as being in mint condition. The seller furiously emailed me about the shirt and demanded a % refund in price, so I offered 25%, and they happily took their $2.50 and moved on. I never want to be 'that guy' and expect everything to be perfect no matter how low the price. Ebay has built-in risk by nature, and not enough buyers realize that.

Vman, Why would you be sorry for the guy that bought this beautiful 15 year old "Mani" Armani, for $415? Just because it's a dated low end Mani suit that he overpaid for by a factor of 4 or 5 Poor Guy! Here is the buyer, wiselonestars feedback: Here's a link to wiselonestars feedback for lordrcolton Doesn't seem like a happy buyer to me! This seller is a particular sleezeball that overhypes every item and makes unsubstantiated claims that are lies. Claims like, "2007 Model", "Like New", "Nicest Suit on Ebay", and on and on, that are usually not true.

I got my first less than positive feedback last week - a buyer that was angry it took so long for him to receive his item, in Canada, even though I shipped it within 48 hrs

There are just as many bad buyers as bad sellers, unfortunately...

Anybody have any dealings with eBay seller: eplaksienko. ??? He has a pretty solid feedback rating, and seems to be dealing consistently in good items. I just bough a isaia 7-fold, and I'm worried he has been dealing with high quality items almost too frequently.

http://myworld.ebay.ca/eplaksienko/

and comments on this tie are welcome.... not sure if I got burned or not. Should be here any day now.

What is this? Should it be a source of concern in dealings with SF notables A Harris, V Man or edmorel too?

Regarding the tie, provided it comes as new, without or without discount department store tags(the most likely source), you did rather well. That Isaia 7-fold retails for $225, not $170 as the seller said; I sold the exact same one on eBay last month for ~$85. The tie is gorgeous BTW, wear it in good health.
