    Might as well block this bozo to save yourself from potential aggravation: 122391musician

    Bought a pair of size 10 B shoes. Stated size and width 4 times in the listing:

    Listing title:
    New Florsheim vintage NOS dress loafers, size 10B, cognac leather, never worn

    Listing specifics:
    US Shoe Size (Men's): 10
    Width: Narrow (C, B)

    Parts of listing text:
    New vintage Florsheim cognac brown dress loafers. New old stock / dead stock. Never worn. Size 10B. ...
    Size 10 B / narrow. ...
    Ensure that you purchase your correct size as returns are not accepted due to "does not fit." ...

    Messages AFTER paid and shipped:
    Buyer: i bought this shoes, but i want tell you that the size must be like this but EE . Please, i hope that you didnt shipping already.
    Me: The shoes were already shipped, on Monday 30th June.
    Buyer: Wao, but you have like this, but EE?
    Me: I do not. The only pair I had was the pair that you purchased, size 10 B.
    Buyer: ok, lets waiting that it fit.
    Me: <silence>

    Figured I'd ask this here.

    I run a site for searching for menswear on eBay (link in sig). Right now it searches mostly by keyword, but I've recently started adding the entire listings of sellers who stock nice mens clothing, and I figured the ebay sellers on styleforum would be a good place to start.

    Here's who I've got so far:

    balearic1
    1luxoticthread
    the-seam-store
    gooseguy84
    rightcoastsrf24
    abubolz
    florian-lafage
    wardroberenovations
    txwoodworker
    sartorialsociety
    repeat_business
    styleinstride
    dominicsagona3
    koala-t-menswear
    nbthreads

    Anyone else I should add?

    Thanks!

    I have a two part question...

    A buyer bought something (international). After he got the item, he contacted me to request a return. The item just got back in the last two days(the purchase was made on May 2nd). He's trying to get the original shipping charge refunded, which I have no intention of doing.

    Can he still open a case through Ebay? What is his deadline for leaving negative feedback?

    You could browse the "what I'm selling on ebay" thread here and see who makes the cut insofar as what you consider nice stuff. Many folks who post here also post their listings there.

    Nice, thanks for the inclusion! I don't spend much time on reddit, where do you post your roundups?

    I generally post them to /r/frugalmalefashion, with the angle "all buy it now, all under $75", since, well, they're about frugal male fashion.

    /r/malefashionadvice would be better, but there was some discussion as to whether they belonged in that subreddit or not, and I decided not to push my luck since the whole thing is a thinly-veiled ad for my site anyway.

    I also have a weekly email blast that I'm still toying with the format of, but for right now is similar. People seem to REALLY like buy it now, as long as the price is good.

    You should add @GMMcL 's accounts. I can't remember the names. I think repeatbusiness is one of them. Thought he had another?

    PS: I use your search site all the time. Thanks for the amazing resource!
