There's an angry drunk in every corner bar. He'd fight you for real except every time he stands up his pants fall down.

As is always recommended - if you don't like it, don't click in it.

My take on that (you're interested in my take, aren't you??) is that if a buyer gets an item promptly shipped and it's in 'great condition', it's unnecessary and unfair to leave a neutral feedback just because the tone of the email isn't friendly enough. Granted, all caps are annoying, but the problem originates with the buyer's neutral, IMO.

I have no opinion about the rest of it, about this seller or the 'red flags' that some are claiming.

I'm just sayin' that even many of his positive feedbacks are actually negatives in disguise...

"cool but the jacket is dirty and it's difficult to clean 'cause it's goretex" -- 12/13/08

"quality knock off print....though definately not a genuine article" -- 12/11/08

"not the real deal." -- 12/4/08

etc. etc. etc.

I'm not trying to start anything here... not saying his briefcases are as fake as his Obama posters or anything like that - just sayin' perhaps it would have been better to post pictures of the briefcases (without links to his auctions) in the Men's Clothing section and not B&S if the intent was merely to show-off some briefcase pr0n...

Communication is very important. Instead of retorting like a baby in all caps, "!ALL MY E-MAILS ARE FRIENDLY, THERE IS NO REASON YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT A NEUTRAL!", he should have just not replied at all, or replied something like, "Thank you for your comment - I will work on improving the content and tone of my emails in the future." And he should fix his ad copy because it's misleading. He can edit his listings to state the truth -- i.e., that he has negatives. Or just remove that sentence claiming to have zero negatives. That's all I'm asking. Not trying to start anything here.... is it too much to ask for a little accountability? A little professionalism?

Quoted for irony.


Any eBay sellers who have completed 3000+ transactions (I would actually estimate the total to be around 5-6K, I only received feedbacks on about half of mine FWIW) would have a handful of negatives and the like from not-perfectly-satisfied customers. It's inevitable.


Not sure what you're trying to start here either, but I'd advise you give up.

Well like I said before, it's par for the course for many sellers (but not all sellers) that they would have some negatives after 3,000 transactions. But he certainly doesn't need to lie and claim that he has perfect feedback, as he's currently doing in all his active auctions: "NOTE: I HAVE MORE THAN 3000 POSITIVE FEEDBACK ON EBAY AND NO NEGATIVES." That's all I'm trying to say here, Whacked. So are you defending misleading and dishonest eBay auctions? I'd advise you give that up, Whacked. Honesty is the best policy. Ya dig?

I'm following this thread with interest as I was looking at the sellers listings last night before I found this thread. I was specifically looking at the Brioni overcoat quoted in a previous post. His price/selection seemed very good so I thought I would check him out on SF. As usual, you guys deliver! With 3000+ transactions I can't say I'm surprised or all that worried to see a couple negatives and neutrals, stuff happens. I am more concerned about the ones quoted above by Amerikajinda re: knockoffs, not the real deal etc.
Does anyone else have experience, good or bad, buying from this seller?
thanks

That's either an incredibly unusual coincidence, or someone is shill bidding. Here's a screen capture:
I had an experience with him from years ago and it was quite irritating he didn't ship all of a product and then made a big deal living up to what was promised. Took him literally months to make it right and all the way with rude emails. If I remember right the item and most of the stuff is just from a california outlet mall that I purchased from him. I wouldn't really care that much about those negatives, a few will popup in that many sales. On the auctions, bid what you think is a fair price that you are happy with if shill bidding was going on they are just going to end up with the product again instead of selling it. If you pay a fair price and get the item fully quickly , who cares about the other stuff. Pay by credit card and you are protected.

The knock off claims are from the Obama posters, which have seemed to generate the bulk of this guys netural/negative feedback. To me these people seem pi$$ed off they spent so much on a poster.

If the seller has more than a few feedbacks which complain about knock-offs being sold as the real deal, that's a separate issue.

With regard to your suggestion about the correct response to a neutral based on the friendliness of his emails, we'll agree to disagree, except for the all caps which are never pleasant. I would actually respond more strongly than he did because I feel the complaint was that of a crybaby. If you purchase an item, it is shipped promptly and it is in 'great condition' as the buyer stated, it is wrong to leave a neutral just because the seller didn't spend his time composing touchy-feely responses to your emails.

This thread and the feedbacks which suggest fakes would be enough for me to can any deals with the seller.

Bought something from him, item arrived in time and in decent conditions.

I have been watching these items for more than a few months now (found them first listed back in around September time frame w/ high starting price/BIN).

I have tried to email him for measurements but he never replied, emailed him once about color and he says the pictures are the true colors. So the seller communications are definitely far from friendly.

You guys need to ease up, jeez. His feedback is excellent, especially given the sheer bulk of transactions he does. Also, I know the seller, I know where he gets most of his stuff, and have seen a lot of it in person. The clothing he sells is authentic.

Oh just shut up already. You conveniently ignored this post which provides a reasonable explanation for what you so dearly protest.

And I like how completely alter your earlier post, only leaving the sentence I quoted intact. Says more about yourself than anything.

If you take a look at the negatives, all of them (at least the recent ones) are from buyers of Obama posters; some claim the posters are not authentic (read: not published directly by His Hopeness, I suppose ). None deals with clothes or other luxurious goods he offers.
