post #95881 of 124685

I like going through sold listings, and half the pictures, I've already seen on this site.

 

Quick e-bay question (Click to show)
Same guy bought two pairs of pants, but both have an assigned shipping price on them. How do I adjust so that he only pays for one box? Or was he planning on paying double the shipping i'm okay with that too aha

 

Edit: ^^^ Great finds!

I remember seeing that shirt. Was on my watch list but forgot to bid. Laughed at the comment about the button being replaced with red thread. lol8[1].gif

I'm kicking myself for not looking at her other items. $15 Zegna suits?! Glad someone on here got 'em, though.


I'd definitely ask her to combine shipping. It would be very unreasonable of her not to. If not, she'd be pocketing $70+ just on shipping.

Bam!  I would also like a tie, and you didn't say it had to be of ourselves.

I know folks hate the "please look at this off ebay" posts, but this is close enough to tailor for me, so I snagged it.  Am I missing something?  Loro Piana Super 190s suit for $120 seems insane.  It has the 14 day return policy in case there is hidden damage.  Is it fake or am I just massively off on pricing?

Since they only show the "fabric by Loro Piana" tag, I wouldn't be surprised if it's not actually a Loro Piana suit. Black + pleated trousers, too...I think you overpaid quite a bit.

That could be a Jos A Banks or some other lower end brand. He specifically avoided taking pictures of the manufacturer and just showed the fabric tag. Also in classic menswear a black suit is for formal engagements and funerals not for everyday wear. This is of course a matter of taste as well, but I agree with Chet the pleated pants and the color is probably why you got it for the price you did.

Saw this shirt.  I am pretty sure its made in japan and says hero on the front.  Feels like its really good quality for a t-shirt. 

Any ideas of what it is?  (Bottom picture - Front, Top - Back)

Been staring at this thing for a few minutes. Can't make out the characters due to being cursive...It does indeed says "hero" on the front. Any tags?

Total is about $295 with $98 of that shipping. Do you think it would be unreasonable to ask for a discount for shipping since she can place everything in one box?

 

The most expensive thing was a Canali Tux for $61 that I have been after for a year. 7 are my size including the suits and the tux, I am hoping the Tux fits it should be a 42R or so and typically I wear a 44R but have been know to fit a 42R. I think if nothing else I should be able to trade it away here.

A hint within, it would have been better to take pictures on the floor rather than putting the suits on the female mannequin. I am guessing this is why there was no competition on any of them.

Thanks for the thoughts guys!  Guess I'll find out if it is bespoke by LP or something else pretty soon. :)
