1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Gentlemen I got the following hand-tailored cashmere jacket from Chester Barrie as a gift. The jacket is of amazing quality - Unfortunately, it is too big for me. 1) What is the approximate retail value of the jacket? 2) Would anyone be interested to buy it? Measurements - Neck to foot of tail 33 3/4 inches - Armpit to armpit 25 1/2 Inches - Shoulder to shoulder 21 Inches - Sleeve length 26 3/4 inches from shoulder top to end of arm Thank you very much.

    Too big for me.

    I would imagine it retails for at least $1500.

    Newtrane, your solution only compounded the mistake, unfortunately.  You now have duplicate listings for the same item.  I strongly recommend that you log into your seller account and cancel the older one immediately, if not sooner.  <s>Stupi</s>--erm, unobservant people are legion on eBay, and they will bid on your auction despite your warning.  Worse, there are probably others (like me [​IMG]) who have third-party auto-snipe bids set for the final 5 seconds.  None of these people will be amused by the result--and neither will you if the the final bid goes above your "real" listing.  For future reference, the best way to deal with a "wrong category" screwup is to revise the existing auction listing--no need to submit a duplicate.  And, if necessary, you can cancel a listing even if there are bids on it: you just have to manually cancel those bids first, with all the attendant customer aggravation that implies. It's a nice-looking coat, and I hope you get a good price for it.  It's my exact size, actually, but unfortunately not a good color for me.  (If it were, I'd be cursing you for realizing you'd put it in the wrong category. [​IMG])
