    This will still end up causing me grief won't it?

    Taking it to the next level, fellas. You now have to all step your game up. http://www.ebay.com/itm/360639550010?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

    Might have to....my wife has been bugging me to get her a new laptop anyway. She could have mine and I could switch. I would just have to buy all new CAD software for it....[​IMG]

    Nope the buyer already paid, and it was shipped.

    It probably will. But mainly because your chest measurement isn't for a 42R.

    +1...a 21" p2p is a 42" chest, which indicates a 40R, not 42. Gotta have room to breathe in there.

    +1. At least 40R, maybe even 38-39. Modern cuts often have 3-4" extra breathing space in the chest.

    In your experience, BIN sells higher? I set my auctions to start at what my BIN will be so if anything gets bid up, it's gravy, like the Robert Graham shirt I sold practically at retail that I would have never listed BIN at $80. The only down side is the relisting fee when things don't sell, so it's a balancing act between pricing things so they will sell without too many relists, and keeping my prices up when they sell with only one bid.

    Immediate assistance requested:

    Someone with a feedback score of 1 just bought a high-priced item from me. He's been a member since January 09, 2012.

    The only feedback:

    Quick response and fast payment. Perfect! THANKS!!



    What should I do? Message him and make sure he's not going to pull a fast one on me? He already paid, but that doesn't make me feel any better.
