La-La-Land sounds awfully nice but what about behaving like a responsible adult? Complete strangers are not your friends, especially when you never interacted with them in any other manner than to buy stuff they're trying to sell. Continue to believe in the "brotherhood of SF" all you want and you may soon end up in disappointment like the OP.

oh... and that Nigerian penpal of yours is not really your friend either...

Although I disagree with you about it being the buyer's fault, I 100% agree with this post

In those circumstances, saying 'it is the duty of the buyer to ask if not stated the measurements' is plainly wrong IMO.

I'm getting confused here - isn't the critical measurement usually the shoulder, which cannot be altered? Were the suits taken in in the chest and waist and the excess material removed so it can't be let out?

If the shoulder fits we must ...

While true, let it be known that old Slyced, among many others here, is a man of great integrity.

I have been reading through this thread today. As a frequent seller, I have a normal no return policy, but if there is ANYTHING that is even possibly attributable to my own fault, I will gladly take a return. This context is different, however. There was no listing. Why don't we all agree to relist the suits on SF and the two parties split whatever, if any, loss.

I think both are at fault actually - it was a half-baked haphazard sale that went too fast with too little communication - I'm just trying to emphasize caveat emptor so other buyers remember that they have responsibilities when buying used items.

BTW - this thread is now overtaken by sellers telling us how great they are and pointing the finger to another seller to make themselves look good. Slightly lame IMO.

Thanks for the kind words, Andy. I wish I could drive out to all my customers and have them inspect my merchandise in person before any sale is made. Barring that, I always offer the next-best thing -- a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee on everything I sell. It's that simple.

Buying on B&S should be hassle and worry-free. Despite what gdl203 says, I too believe in the "brotherhood of SF".

That is not my intention at all. I would rather buyers vouch for my sales history. I think it is important to know what opinions come from sellers. If someone on here was saying it is all the buyer's fault, wouldn't your value of their opinion differ if you knew they were a regular seller... Of course it would.

I concur.... I wanted feedback and got it.

I'm thankful for all parties, regardless of opinion, who were kind enough to take the time to share their thoughts. The money lost will hopefully save money and time in the future by being a more educated buyer.

Also, if anyone is interested in some nice 42 long RLPL stuff, let me know. Cheap... and with measurements .

Thanks all.

Do you have any Asian females in your family?

^^I don't know, but I wish Ed would come out to inspect the underwear he sold me to make sure it fits.

Whatever man, it's a toss up. I can't believe people pay that much for used RLPL btw.

+1 I going to keep my eye out for a few used 44L RLPL and see if I can flip em

Of course a 44 chest is most often a 46"-48" chest and a a 42 chest os more like 44"-46" unless of course it a RL then sometimes a 44 chest is a 44 chest.

The tags never really mean much to me. I have severl 40r jackets, a few 41r, a couple 42r, 42l and even a 43r and fit about the same.
