    Its a nice jacket. Not my size or I'd bid on it. Just went back an re-read Spoo's post 5140 on putting key words in the title and you've got most of them. If you take out Lagerfield, what do you add? Made in USA? Premium Fabric?

    Minor point, but I prefer to leave a jacket unbuttoned on a hanger. Unbutton it, let the front overlap with the button side on top. You get somewhat the same look but it slims the jacket and it takes away that fold in the middle.

    (edit: quoted wrong poster - was for jgill79...)
    30+ views ain't all that bad for a blazer among a sea of tens of thousands, without the blazer being a Kiton and the seller not being a Spoo. Personally I have no expectations, just hopes.
    Made in USA does appeal to some buyers. As does a blurb about condition being "excellent" or "flawless" &c.
    Noticed you have the Country of Manufacture as France, but it's clearly made in the USA from that UNITE label.
    Sometimes an item gets views, sometimes it doesn't until you relist it and suddenly for some reason there is more interest - eBay is a fickle mistress.

    I just reposted it in the eBay selling forum and here, so the views have bumped up quite a bit in the last couple hours. It was 3 before I did that. Oh well! Ii appreciate all the input from everyone, though! Thanks for calling out the "France" problem.

    Hickey Freeman doesnt get a lot of love, which isnt helping you. Furthermore, the vast majority of HF stuff on ebay is single vented and buyers know that, so I would stick dual or side vent in the title somewhere - it is much more desirable.
    You should do whatever you can to make your main photo look good. Make it brighter, get it in focus. The jacket looks to be very nice, but the low gorge and fish-mouthy notch make it look a bit dated though.

    Does anyone know where the Gallery Plus option went? I can't find it anywhere when I'm starting a listing

    On the review page. There is a drop down arrow now with all the extras including the listing preview.

    How to upgrade


    To upgrade to Gallery Plus, go to the second page of the Sell Your Item form, "Review your listing." It's under the "Maximize your listing's visibility" section. You can upgrade when you first create your listing, or later.

    I bought it for myself from Nordstrom Rack with the tags on it. I don't deal in thrifted clothing. The only NWOT that I sell is stuff from my closet that I know for a fact has never been worn/washed etc.

    Hmmm I went to check as well and it isn't there, then I looked at my listings and all of my clothing listings have it. I didn't add it, so must have been free as part of the 1000000 free listings?

    Isn't that little magnifying glass what you are looking for? Maybe it was automatic for me at least, but it is only my clothing that has this I have a few other things in other categories that don't.

    Wow that sucks, can eBay do anything about his claims? more-so, did they enforce you to perform any further actions?
