Oxxford 2btn

Canali 2btn

I've bought a Canali suit and a Charvet tie from Italian Suit Warehouse.
The quality was good, the service/communication was good and the prices I paid were very good.
When I have a look at their auctions, I do sometimes notice that quite a few of their suits are a bit dated in style.
However, as they often have auctions with very low starting bids, there is the potential to end up with a nice, used suit at a low price.

Dear members of the forum, I would like to seek some advice over a transaction. I have bid for this shirt and won the auction. Admittedly at the starting bid. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN:IT&ih=012 However the seller send me an invoice with a much higher shipping cost ( $33) when the auction started the shipping cost to be $20 to Singapore. I protested but the seller insist that I pay the "adjusted" shipping rate or there is no deal and he is re-listing the auction. If the seller feels that the price I won is far below what he hopes to fetch, I am fine to drop the transaction but I did not feel it was right for him to try to make it back by inflating the shipping exorbitantly hoping that I will drop the transaction. What do you think I should do? Drop the transaction and leave a negative feedback which in my dealing on eBay has only done once as I do not wish to go around dropping a negative for every failed transaction or just let it go? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I think there are two issues: what is right, and what you may want to do
I think that you could certainly (though ebay) make the seller honor the original shipping, which is still in the auction listing
however, the shirt looks very faded to me, and even at the opening bid of $1, adding even the $20 for shipping to singapore just gets you a really old-looking shirt for $20

Thanks for the advice. Think I will just let it go.

Good advice

I've just had an unlucky ebay purchase and I'm after some guidance to what my expectations should be as a buyer. I won some black AE park avenues from a high volume ebay seller. The pictures provided were two standard ebay hosted images (fairly small but decent) and going by the sole of the shoes they were practically brand new. The sole leather still had its original colour. Shoes arrived and they are practically new but wrong size compared to the description, and each shoe has a 4 inch slice through the leather along the outside top back just bellow the top seam, and glue along the inside (the glue is trivial to remove) like someone tried to remove some stickers with a box cutter and cut into the leather. The damage wasn't mentioned and isn't visible in the ebay photos unless you know its there and even then you can't tell its extent. The seller offered to refund everything except for the shipping (to Australia it was US $35) and I keep the shoes. Even though I can't wear them because of the size, I've thought about this for a couple of days and in the end decided to cop the 35 loss (plus paypal and currency conversion fees) just to avoid more hassles of having to ship the shoes back and further dellays. I might also be able to give them to someone as beaters. Since there are a lot of regular ebay sellers here, would I have been in my right to expect a full refund, including full shipping there and back and full fee coverage? Has anyone had to dispute what is and isn't superficial damage? If the shoes weren't the wrong size I really didn't feel like arguing with someone on the other side of the globe over what damage is acceptable on second hand goods.

This is not about a seller, but a buyer.

Sold a $49.99 J Press blue coat to misterfinearts.

Shipped it my usual way, wrapped in dry cleaners plastic and in a Priority Mail tyvek envelope.

No communication until negative feedback saying "no packing/padding/cardboard--Well-Wrinkled!"

Only my second neg in over 2500 transactions.

Deal with this person at your peril.

Ok, but is there a buyer name?

I would be miffed by a coat shipped in Tyvek envelope. Pants, shirts, OK, but I like to see boxes for jackets/suits. I wouldn't leave a negative (out of the blue or not) for it though. My 2 cents. Most of the time I even ship shirts and pants in boxes because they typically weigh slightly over 1 pound and it doesn't matter if it's 1lb 1oz or 1lb 15oz, Priority postage is the same. So I throw it in a 7oz box.

Blondy's Bay is/was a seller on eBay that appears to sell under multiple names. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=40745

Reading the replies made me think twice of really trying on ebay . But I guess a lot of people do purchase on them , probably it was just a coincedence that some sellers are terrible . hehehe

I've heard that there are a lot of websites trying to compete with Ebay this days, particularly per country location. A lot of auction sites are arising online. Have heard of one that sounds quiet interesting since it's new. Maybe they give off much better deals.
