    I just bought some new beeswax Clarks Desert Boots from Amazon. I have learned that it's common for them to come with some marks on them, they're supposed to get a worn look anyway so I don't care too much.

    But there's one long straight mark (not sure if it's a scratch mark or what) that stands out and bothers me a little.

    How common do you think this is? Would you go to the trouble of exchanging them with an online retailer?

    Would you recommend using Kiwi mink oil or Obenauf's LP, do you think that would darken or cover that scratch?

    I wouldn't be worried at all. Paypal virtually always sides with the buyer, regardless of the situation. As an eBay seller I've had buyers "change their mind" after using a product for 2 weeks and get their money back. I've heard stories of buyers receiving refunds and shipping back a box of rocks - but to Paypal any package with a tracking number is proof of a return, so the seller can't do anything.

    Also if you buy on Paypal with a credit card as the source of payment, you also have the option of filing for a chargeback on the purchase with your credit card company.

    Nope. With the one who is actually writing something about the case.
    I have won my last dispute because only me, as a seller, wrote something to solve the case.

    Then I suspect there wasn't much of a case to be had there. But when it's one man's word against another's and the evidence is inconclusive, the buyer usually comes out on top. Paypal works very hard to support their image as risk-free for buyers.

    Quote: Potemkin, notice it says "doesn't arrive," not "doesn't ship." The seller needs to show the item's status as delivered and the date of delivery: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-safety-and-security.

    as long as you can give a full statement about the case (and the buyer does not) you are the winner.
    it depends thought, you are right.

    This is 100% common and will jut go away w/ use. Or rub it a little with your fingers. Don't use any product. Trust me.
    This. I went to elaborate lengths in terms of communication on a claim filed against me (seller) for an expensive item I shipped to Russia. PP sided w/ the Buyer, who literally did nothing save for open the claim. I was furious. As I was out my item, and the money. In the end, the item showed up one day at my house, weeks later, returned by the Russian post office as undeliverable--triple checking revealed I'd sent it to the exact adress listed in both eBay and PP. Go figure Odd, lame, but in line w/ almost every PP story I hear

    i currently have the following 4 pairs of denim jeans in different shades of blue, but wanted to know if gray jeans are suitable with casual shirts e.g OCBD, flannel, checked , vertical stripes ?

    are these dark gray jeans a versatile color?
    for a 27 y/o man

    It's not as much about color as it is about fading and details. The True Religions you posted have obnoxious back pockets and an ugly, unnatural fade. You'll want something with subtle or no details; Levi's are fine, but since you seem to have the money for stuff like True Religion, look into a brand like APC or 3Sixteen, who make denim with very minimal details. The result is a cleaner, better looking, more "grown up" looking jean. Alternatively, check out the "What Are You Wearing Today" thread on here. A lot of guys post the brands that they're wearing, so if you see something you like, you can look into it more that way as well.

    Washes can be done well, but it would be better for you to go with something minimally processed (no fades). Find a brand with details you like, then look into their washes to see if they offer a "raw/rigid/rinse" colorway, which is just dark blue without fading. A decent pair of this kind of denim goes with most things. People on this board like gray/white/black too, but you should probably start with a dark blue pair first.

    Since it seems like you're just starting out with this stuff, I'd recommend you take some time and read a site like putthison.com. Check out the articles in the links on the right side of the page. They do a web series and they had an episode on denim in their first season; I'd definitely look into that just to get some good basic knowledge on this type of stuff.
