    I like the rocks, or at least heavily chilled. Unless I am sick, then I heat it up.

    What's the deal with vintage synchillas? Sure patagonia is a name, but the thing looks horrible.

    Back in the day, they were the best fleece in town... People get all gushy for things that remind them of the good old days. I never could stand them, but I've sold about ten of them this year.

    Hey Br˚s,

    I am about to unload a shitload of Hickey Freeman BNWT 40R suits + sport coats on eBay and wanted to get your advice on where to start prices. Pretty much all suits that I have retail for $1495, and SCs retail for a minimum of $1200. Obviously, I don't expect to make near what retail would be, but I would appreciate any advice on anything beyond the normal advice. Perhaps, some of you successful guys who have listed a lot on eBay could advise on what layout to use? What shots are important to take? What type of camera lenses to use? What details to highlight? Thanks in advance.

    Should be a nobrainer, but be sure to include that you have "many other HF suits in the same size" in your other listings. Hell, it might be worth the $.50 (or whatever) to include that in the subtitle of each listing - if people are already browsing for suits in your provided size/brand, they'll see you listing and will have to go through your listing to see your other items.

    So, I went almost 3 weeks with 100% positive feedback. Back to 99.9%

    Sounds like a dick! What exactly was he claiming was misrepresented? One more added to my blocked list.

    This excerpt was included in my listing from the Black Jack website.
    " Black Jack Boots takes great pride in presenting the finest in hand-made boot, belts and accessories. The process of making Black Jack Boots begins with the selection of only the best leathers and findings around the world to ensure the best in fit, comfort and durability. Making a pair of Black Jack Boots involves over 100 steps."

    He claims I misrepresented them because they did not fit as the listing said they would. They were too small.

    I offered a full refund, but he wanted the refund and the boots.

    He waited too long to open an ebay claim, so he did it through paypal. They told him the same thing I did. Now he is even more pissed.

    He only has 6 more days to return them.

    ^^Why wouldn't you just call ebay and show them what he's complaining about and that you didn't misrepresent anything?
    Just sold a tie for 125 times what I paid![​IMG][​IMG]

    feedback for not fitting is grounds for being removed. thats buyer remorse (make sure you tell that to your agent in your call). your messages indicate that it was not represented because they didnt fit him correct? Get on the horn.

    Yeah, but he claims they are defective because the don't fit him. I will try the call, maybe they will side with me.

    Funny part....in his original message he climes I sold them to him, knowing they wouldn't fit him. Like I knew he fucking shoe size. lol.
