CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I believe those are US sized, as I don't think D or B width are used in UK sizing.
This is neither here nor there, but I'm almost positive that person is an online flipper. Seen that username pop up a ton on Poshmark for liking things that are pretty high value/CM.
Church's UK sizing looks like this: I've sold a lot of pairs and include this chart in the listing photos, never had any returns.
Huge pain. I did notice that even though it doesn't look like it updates, click away to another listing then go back, it's there. Usually.Glitchy as fuck. My initial problem was that they keychains saved in my computer were for GS 7, and now I'm using GS 8. So I deleted my eBay account from GS, rebooted, then added the eBay account back. That made it so I can upload and revise listings again. However, I'm still finding that after I select/enter all the item attributes, half of the time they revert back to defaults before I'm finished with the rest of the listing.
I assume they'll get this sorted, but it's a damn PITA.
Did you provide an actual measurement?
vanity sizing is not the seller’s fault, not is it required to be measured. If a buyer doesn’t know his size ona given brand, he should not be buying them online.Well, I'm just saying, without actual waist measurement specified, if I got a pair of jeans that were tagged a 34, but the actual waist measurement was off by that much to be 37 inches, I would probably ask for a return too. A waist measurement takes 2 seconds.
So the jeans were New Levis? If so you could direct them to the care tag which usually indicates a shrinkage rate of 5%-8%. So they would likely fit after washing.No. I don't on multiquantity new items unless my arbitrary threshold determines it to be useful (i.e. used Kiton suit vs Levis 505 with tags). I used to have someone that came in 10 hours a week to measure multiquantity items but most buyers who lie will lie irregardless if the return isn't free. Most buyers don't read measurements but definitely on anything used above $20 and anything new above $90 that isn't niche. Otherwise it didn't make financial sense to measure as I kept getting ones that said measurements were wrong when it was really they didn't fit
Yeah, but like I said, it only takes a couple of seconds to provide the waist measurement. I mean, we aren't new to selling on Ebay, and we know the types of buyers on Ebay, and we also know how Ebay treats sellers vs buyers, so I try to avoid these kind of issues, instead of sticking to the "I'm right, I'm not required to provide that, and you're dishonest" stance.vanity sizing is not the seller’s fault, not is it required to be measured.

This isn’t a case where the item was shrunk in the wash or defective. If the item is sized to manufacturers specs, there is no need for measurements. If they were altered, then yes, you should provide measurements.Yeah, but like I said, it only takes a couple of seconds to provide the waist measurement.

Hopefully, that was not "clothesgamesmisc"'s first or initial response to the customer. It just reads terrible from a seller.
