    Buyer beware. I bought a TF suit from this guy last month that was also listed as "new without tags" and I got a suit with a stain on the collar that reeked of cologne. He's been a real ball buster about it too.

    why does ebay even offer a NWOT option? it's like dangling a carrot in front of sellers to lie. I've purchased the following NWOT...jacket that had denim stains at teh waist (at least this was mentioned in the listing, which said "part of the jacket is new", still not entirely clear on how that works), a cotton rain jacket that had cat hair all over it, and, my personal favorite, a pair of jeans with a hair elastic and a gum wrapper in teh pocket. the last one i called the seller out on, and they were a total b1tch about it, "just bought it at the boutique and never even tried it on", pocket contents must be part of the finish treatment, eh?

    Solution: stop buying on eBay. Just one of those episodes would be enough of a lesson for me...

    really not that big of a deal...take a picture, relist with an honest description, and resell at a loss...no different from buying something on b&s that does not fit. simply a part of the cost of buying online (anyplace that does not have free shipping & returns, really) vs. in store.

    Phuck me, this is one of he reasons this forum rocks. It took me three tries to vaguely confirm that shoes in the pix were 12D

    Great catch. That would certainly explain why they show no wear!
