This is by far the most psychotic buyer I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. More coming soon.
The silliness continues. 72 bids....twice the price I expected with 4 days left....most views I have had on a single item.

Ohh... further investigation reveals this dude used the global shipping program. Hope that goes well.
Got impatient and auctioned some stuff that I normally would have left sit as BIN. Had a Charles Tyrwhitt shirt go for $1.29 and another for $6.25, a Zegna for $5.50 and another for $4.25. Figure I probably lost about $120 by auctioning them versus BIN. Hopefully it at least brought a decent amount of traffic to my listings and will pay off in the long run. Most of the other items I auctioned along with them did okay. A PRL Corneliani blazer went for $99 that was badly stained, and in the auction I said that I took it to the cleaners and they could not get the stain out - so it's likely there to stay. Beats me.
"The more important one is , can the collar look any better after a good press or is it going to look wrinkled due to age no matter what?
I am not really sure what Doeskin is. Any explanation would be helpful.
I have some Tasmanian garments by Loro Piana which I am very happy with but anything less , just makes me itch."
What do I say to this? I'm pretty sure the jacket will look fine after pressing, but I don't want to guarantee anything.
Tell him to wikipedia Doeskin. I know I had to, but it's basically textured wool. Like saying moleskin.
Anyway, advice needed: Dude with excellent feedback wants me to invoice him so he can be sure to select his military address (saved on Ebay, so I would be sending to the EBAY listed address) as the one for me to send to. Do I recall that people have had trouble with thefts/fraud from military addresses?
I haven't had any trouble with the APO/FPO/DPO addresses, but tracking is hit and miss (mostly miss). Also be sure to print and attach the corresponding customs sheets along with the normal label. Not sure why it gets both, but it does.
Never had any issues myself....but I believe tracking stops once it is handed off to MPSA.
I believe it is a blanket requirement by the military/government to avoid any confusion. Sender may not know if address is domestic or international.
Thanks, guys. He says he hasn't gone overseas yet, so I've offered him to ship Express to his US address (he's just over the NY border -- hell, I could DRIVE it to him) at no extra charge, as a thank you for his service to our country.
Hope your local post office isn't being sold off:
They are selling off 57 or so properties...
I'm officially caught up on my listings.
Time to go shopping.
