    What is it called when a barrel cuff shirt has a buttonhole on both sides (plus a button), thus allowing it to either be used with links or be buttoned?

    Has anyone ever shipped to south korea? I just got an offer on my sutor mantellassi's asking exactly what I was hoping for but I'm not sure how to proceed.

    Upon doing so, how would you ship? Insured? Tracking?

    So one of my USPS Priority shipments isn't showing any updated tracking information. It should have been delivered by now. Does this happen often and they just haven't updated it, or do I have to go through the hassle of calling USPS?

    USPS priority mail international? A flat rate medium box is 60 bucks. Sound about right?

    Have you checked on the USPS site or via the ebay site? I'd check the first.

    If you still can't find out the info then you're gonna have to call USPS and speak to ppl who don't understand our language. GL


    Spoo gave you an answer. Yet you question his answer LOL :p

    Everyone who sends overseas sends usps express like Spoo said. I'd trust him.

    I'm looking at the options online at USPS and trying to figure out which one he said!
    If your comment re: understand our language is reference to outsourcing, then I'll be okay. I'm fluent in hindi.

    It was sarcasm but they're from the Phillipines. They can speak english but can't understand the logic. Sorry, had a really bad incident with a "cesar" recently

    Express mail seems very expensive for international buyers. Is it really the only full-tracking option?

    No, there are a few.

    You can do registered air and add tracking

    You can do priority flat and that comes with tracking

    You can do express (like spoo said) and this is the most safest option out there

    Thanks, Brianpore for educating me the other day!

    I like the pre photo better and agree with above that it's certainly not worth the time in post-processing to go with the white background. The white is to bright and distracting IMHO.

    Many countries have recently discontinued tracking USPS packages even for international Priority.

    What do you guys think about opening up a postal fraud case when ebay/paypal rules against you?

    I sold a pair of nwt jeans. The buyer was 1) not satisfied with the quality and 2) he had to go to the post office to pick them up (!). I've been through this before so I told him. Send them back (buyer responsible for return postage as per my T&C) and I'll issue a refund. He cries foul and opens up a case. Long story short ebay rules against me (Surprise!). I"m out my $$ and my jeans.

    Now, I'm thinking of opening up a postal fraud case to put the fear of god in him. Or, so he won't do this to one of you guys, at least.
