1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Didn't he or someone (with zero feedback) relist very recently with a similar looking photo?

    Possibly. He probably has some other IDs running the same scam. I think between me and the other buyers - he netted somewhere in the region of £8k.

    He did get me a while back. It's the same MO of the guy that I dealt with. I ended up getting my money back, but it took a ton of work with Paypal. Apparently the buyer protections don't apply the same way to international purchases, which was not explained in the Paypal terms at the time.

    My memory doesn't fail me then :)

    Absolute nightmare trying to get the money back. I must have spent around 2 - 3 hours on the phone to PayPal over the course of a month. It's the sole reason I will not buy *or* ship anything to Italy.


    +1. That LV duffel is a pretty little thing...

    I had a LV weekender listed on SF for about half the price.

    Oh and Spoo, aren't those RLPL shoulders a bit wide?

    All problems can be solved with less shoulder pads...

    Do you routinely remove padding from shoulders?

    When necessary, sure. I had a lot of jackets that had some hard shoulders that i had narrowed/removed.

    They all worked out more or less? Was considering this with some of my SC's. If you don't mind me asking, how much did your tailor charge for this?
