Brianpore, where's that thread about the shared block list again?

Funny that I have a picture of the collar in there and no wear. ffffuuuu.gif

I am sorry this happened to you man.

While it is buyer responsibility to look at measurements, I feel that many pay lip service to these and go by size tag or inferred size tag (most have no clue about their measurements).

The suit measurements you posted indicate a trimmer 46R or certainly a bigger than average 44R (with 48US shoulders). Still though, stupid buyer for not checking measurements mad.gif

Suit probably did not fit the buyer well, and he is throwing as many random excuses to make sure he gets his money back.

I also hate how many buyers think that a private seller is somehow a Neiman Marcus. They do not realize that their stupid mistakes cost sellers money through eBay fees and postage (a full refund includes eBay total with postage to buyer so seller picks up this tab). I too would like to know the ID of this buyer since I could well live without those that think it is OK to return something on a whim (or if they make an error, the seller must pay for it). ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

1950's to 1960's. Ofcourse it works! These were (like everything else made in that time) built like tanks ....made to last a lifetime or two.
FYI, Underwriters Laboratories is a safety certification sticker and not the manufacturer.
A nice find with an art deco feel to it. I would consider a new paint job to warm it up from that battleship grey.

^^^ This conversation reminded me of a question that I had been meaning to ask on here.  Now that the new eBay policy requiring a 14 day return policy and 1 day turnaround for shipping to maintain the Top-Rated Seller 20% final value fee discount is in full effect...  How many of you are going to accept the 14 day return policy?

 

Personally, I weighed the possibility of an increase of bogus returns against the 20% FVF discount and came to the conclusion that 1 or 2 bogus returns per month would equal or exceed any potential savings by agreeing to eBay's new policy.  ffffuuuu.gif  Unless I'm missing something (which is probably the case), what do you guys think?

I'm willing to proxy this MINT RLPL tie. Crazy design, but it might work for someone here. Total cost is $35 which includes shipping + Paypal. It's consignment priced, so I'm not trying to gauge anyone here. PM if interested.

Those guys who I sold stuff to + proxied for, sorry about not shipping yet. I had a take home final for my real analysis and it was a real pain in the ass. (Klobber, DM7, vouch for me yeah?) 15 pages of proofs fuck me. I'll get them out tomorrow, or Sunday at the latest.

You guys are going to hate me, but I went thrifting after turning in my final. (Couldn't deal with the drive + long wait at the post office)

I'd say it was a pretty good day. Solid reward for my hard work nod[1].gif

Two Turnbull and Asser shirts, in pretty awesome fabrics, a pair of Brioni and Zanella Platnium UNICORNS icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Shirts are 16.5 and Zanellas + Brioni's are 40. There was another two pairs of Zanellas and a pair of Neiman Marcus made by Incotex in 40. They're very recent if anyone wants me grab them. There were alot of other Turnbull and Assers in 16.5, along with Thomas Pink and T.M Lewin in some pretty cool fabrics.

Alright, I'll be honest, I didn't get the Louis Vuitton from a thrift, but for $150, not bad.

Got myself a pair of Nike soccer cleats, a pair of Seavees chelseas, an Inter Milan jersey and a jacket that Bear Grylls advertises for.

Oh yeah, big boys. 42, 44 (ESPECIALLY 44), 46. Get at me. I'm moving out and I need to get rid of a lot of the stuff. I've got a shit ton of jackets and pants in your sizes. And they're mostly Brioni, Isaia and Oxxford. They'll go pretty cheap.

I ran this through Google translate: eBay to English:

Hello,

I just received the suit. It does not fit me well. Additionally my Wife yelled at me for the purchase as I wasn't supposed to spend this much on a suit. I assume that you will be allowing me to return this item because if you don't I will not only leave negative feedback but will also file a SNAD claim which I am certain to win. Please let me know your intentions


I get one or two of these per week and consider them a cost of doing business on eBay.

I'm saying fake. I'm pretty sure "Hermes Paris" isn't supposed to appear under the horse and carriage. Also, on the blade the front wheel of the carriage should be touching the ground. I see some pink underneath. Insert sex joke here.

The chest is only 47" around. That's a 44 in my book, MAYBE a 45, but not a 46 and certainly not a 48.

 

Here's what I told him:

 

I'm sorry that the suit doesn't work for you. As the listing said "The suit is marked a 48R but measures more like a 44R, but see the measurements below for details". Although it's marked a 48R, the suit jacket isn't even 48 inches around the chest, and would be 51 inches around on average for a 48R.

I don't usually do returns, but in this case I will accept a return and refund your purchase price minus shipping and a 10% relisting fee. Please let me know if you'd like to do this.

Never got there in the first place and returns are just a pain, so I have no desire to get there.

Yeah, I suppose so, but this is ridiculous. If you're going to come up with excuses at least make them ones that aren't covered in the listing and don't complain about wear on areas that have closeup photos. That's just lazy.

I use the 14 day return policy, but I charge a 10% restocking fee + shipping for returns relating to fit.

I'm always surprised I dont see more of your BB stuff on ebay. From what I have read, most people are going to a "restocking fee" to make up the difference in return shipping and fees as well as say the 14 day return policy is only for issues, not "just because". Tack a 15% restocking fee on and at least when someone returns it you dont lose money. Crappy buyers are going to return it either way and sellers are going to take it up the a$$ just like they do now so they dont get dinged with a neg feedback IMO. That being said, all my auction say no returns and thats not about to change.

Don't think it's enough fabric for a gun bag... maybe could hold a few casings. I'll see what I can work out.

*edit* Brian, I just sent a request for access to the block list smile.gif
