Could it have been an honest mistake? How much Kiton for women is floating around the 'bay?

Clearly a seller to add to the eBay banned list.

Seller either flipped the pic or took the picture in a mirror...either way an experienced seller should know the difference between a jacket for a man or a woman.

A good amount of women's Kiton out there--it doesn't sell for much.

I could understand it being a simple mistake if the pictures were not flipped. Like Hmmurdock says, it was either intentionally flipped or photos taken in a mirror. Either of those reasons still makes the seller kind of a moron.

And sorry, Brian. This is the only thread I post in anymore, and I forget there are other threads dedicated to this sort of thing.

Wanted to square up with the Dealer for the service of looking at my car to identify that I has a cracked radiator (which I told them when I dropped it off) - $62.50.

BUT they don't except credit card transactions over the phone. They told me the towing company would pay for the charge and then charge me. I called the towing company to verify. NOPE, they don't do that. SO, I had to leave work and drive 2 hours to pay the bill before they would release the car to the tow truck. Damn that was stupid. 

 

End Rant

 

Ouch! I hope you will be compensated with a few Kitons or Shells.

I don't want to disagree....but unless the seller relocated the breast pocket for his photo, the image was not flipped, just buttoned all the way up. Since it is buttoned from the opposite side, it naturally appears to be lying there as an unbuttoned men's jacket. Still, the seller should take full responsibility for the mistake, whether intentional or accidental.

Ah, you are correct. I suppose it could have been an accident. I'm more angry because this is the second or third time this week I've bought something on eBay that was significantly different than advertised.

also regarding comics is there anyone here into them at all? Most of my friends are really nerdy but they still don't read comics, they read manga instead of good old fashioned american ones hrumph.

2 store. 5 finds. All 9 out of 10 condition or better.

L to R:
Pristine J Press Pressidential sport coat in a check tweed, 3 roll 2, single vent, 41R/S.
Tom James Royal Classic dated 2008, slim cut, dual vent, flat front, crimson paisley lining, ~41S
Antonio Fusco navy blue chalk stripe flannel, dual vent. Thought I recognized the tag, and quality is there (e.g., hand sewn lapel flap; vent flap strap). 42R with Michael Strahan shoulders. May be a return candidate.
PRL USA gray nailhead, single breast, 2 button. 42R.
Pristine J Press charcoal flannel, 3 roll 2, single breast, flat front trou. 40R/S

The one thing that pisses me off is I also found a vintage Barney's house brand 100% wool paisley tie. Not knit. Woven. Ancient madder colors, too. It was really cool. But I took the suits on hangers, and forgot it was mixed in. I think I must have dropped it. Hopefully I dropped it in the store, and not the parking lot. I doubt they'll let me take it without paying again, which will mean I'll have to decide whether it's worth DOUBLE the already high purchase price....

Edit:
Oh, also, here are those straight ties I bragged about the other day sans pics. Aren't they awesome? I know someone wants these at cost plus shipping plus a few bucks for beer money.

Agree. I've read the whole series and I sort of lost interest in the TV series. IMO the comics are better and way more nuanced.

I love comics. I read a couple series but am more into graphic novels. Check out the Richard Stark Parker series by Darwyn Cooke. I also really liked a series from Europe called Largo Winch - kind of like Tintin for grown ups (not that Tintin isn't for grown ups). ; )

Its funny I started out watching the show and when I caught up I started reading the comics. Now that I am past the storyline of the show I find it really boring in comparison. The comics dont suffer from bad acting or low budget special effects. I also find it kinda takes me out of the story when not a single person can say Fuck in the show. If this was a real world situation everyone would be swearing like sailors. Im not sure what it is about cussing but it seems to make things more realistic for me.

Today's haul:


Recent Eddie Bauer brown leather bomber with sheepskin collar. Size M but fits. Mint. No wear.





Looks like a regular belt, right? Nope. Knew it was something right when I picked it up.




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ties





Baller black t-shirt





RLPL linen





Willis & Geiger wool shirt





And I've been after a pair like this for a long time. Paid up quite a bit but they were NIB and my size. Now to do some serious breaking in.....

The two novels take steps toward humanizing him by explaining his back story and how he becomes The Governor.
