Take the refund...if you dont ebay will favor with them and tell them to "destroy the item" as they do not want a "fake" item returned/resold. You've all read about the "fake" guitar, right?

I'm going to JAB today to pick up enough black OCBD dress shirts in my size to wear to work (stupid dress code!) without having to wash my inventory every 4 days. They're advertising them on the radio for $25/per.
I'm always looking out for black shirts in your size, but never seem to find any

I can't be the only one... right???
I never open the front jacket pockets. What's the point? Now if you find basting on the vent, or the (2 or 4) thread stitching on the end of the sleeve that is there to hold on the tag, that is when I consider the item NWOT and only then will I say NWOT. Who wears a jacket without taking the basting out of the vent or removing the random thread from the cuff?

Nice find. Likely an orphan, though. See if you can find the trousers in the ladies section. Should be easy to spot in that pattern, and with "Paul Smith" on the waistband.
A few things to know about Paul Smith: First, generally considered a "fashion" house, though I think the Mainline suits (just say "Paul Smith", not "London") get some respect around here. Same with their Japan stuff, I think. Half canvas at best (and that's Mainline), iirc. "PS" is their bottom rung diffusion line.
Also, different suit models have different cuts. All are, in my experience, slimmer than normal. But Westbourne and Byard are particularly slim, iirc. I found a nice 42R Westbourne navy pinstripe once -- actually the only pair of trousers I've ever reunited with a jacket at a Goodwill. But alas, I looked like Chris Farley from Tommy Boy in it.
+1 Paul Smith mainline does not say "London", as that is the more fashion line PS is the lowest line. I have found most anything from Paul Smith flips on ebay well though!
PS - We need a thumbs down smiley face...who do I talk to about that
