Perhaps the best and most honest Ebay seller out there.

Plus, he doesn't hype his stuff and his ad designs lack pizazz

So there's an excellent chance for real bargains buying from "briiian13".

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.

Glad to hear it. I'm a pretty diligent reasearcher when it comes to buying and I thought I did my due diligence. Maybe this thread is making me paranoid! I guess having that many quality items and relatively low starting bids, with limited bidding. I was the only bid on this 7-fold tie, for 50 dollars. I guess after reading this thread, just sent of some alarm bells.

As I said before, this seller has had great feedback, with many high end items. If it does arrive as advertised, I will be thrilled, and I agree, it is a stunning tie, and I look forward to wearing it proudly.

Thanks for the feedback, I will report back when I receive it.

Particularly about fabric content (he says the fabrics are super 110s, 120s, whatever, when there is no proof that they are), 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!

lordrcolton is now called barimenswear

He now even has a silly sound addition to his listings.

But a little lipstick hasn't changed this pig.

It's the same exaggerations, lies, and careless flouting of facts as before (maybe worse!).

Here's his current inventory

He has some nice items and he has some relics like 25 year old "Mani" suits (with the very old label), that he hypes up.

I wonder if a seller like this realizes that he would probably net as much on his sales by being honest. Oh well!

Re: lordcolton now barimenswear... Just love the 15 year old Zegna suit he's advertising as a $3250 new item. And that revolting audio track...

It's rare indeed when I applaud an ebay seller, but Andrew Harris came through on a stunning Logsdail suit that will require zero alterations. Well done, Andrew.
post #308 of 659
Glad you like it. The fabric on that suit is killer, and it's the best cut Logsdail I've seen too.

[random rant]
The reply I got from a seller (that I won't name) after asking for measurements of a suit he's selling (for none was listed):

"Sorry, we do not provide all the measurments you requested. Since we do not have a return policy, I suggest you do NOT bid on this item."

Hmmm... a seller who doesn't want business? Really?

On the other hand, the $ had a very high exchange rate against other currency 15years ago, so this guy is really doing you a favor.......

G'day all,
Has anyone had any dealings with nicorico04? He has a 100% record, despite having been trading since 2004, albeit with only 42 hits.

I'm quite sure s/he has, or had another account which sold Dior, Tom Ford and Christian Lacroix shoes (not sure if I remember the Lacroix correctly)

He or she is currently stocking a brand of shoes called Priamo, which I like a great deal (and suspect most of you will cringe, by the look of em. Be warned. ;p)

I am hoping anyone on this board knows more about them, or the seller.

Thank you all.

Another unsolicited plug for Nitr-o (Pete Testa). Here's a recent purchase:

With only 31 rating points (100% positive), I'm still somewhat new to ebay. So I don't yet know what are considered to be reasonable expectations.

Last week I listed an Etro shirt for sale and the auction ended on Wednesday. After two days I sent the buyer a gentle reminder note that payment was due. He responded within a few hours with, "Hi, I plan to send paypal."

It's now Sunday and no payment, and no further communication. At what point would it be reasonable for me to get a little more aggressive (like a more strongly worded "nudge")?

Considering that the buyer has 297 points with a 99.6% rating, I'm certainly not overly concerned with this particular buyer. But for the future, I would like to know what's normal and expected.

Thanks.

Dennis

Good experience with sellers twosistershoegallery
They have some Johnston Murphy shoes, belts and luggage. Picked up a melton cap toe shoe for 50 bucks 100 off retail.
