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.

    This feels too similar to the Corben. [​IMG] Deals sometimes ARE too good to be true. Of course I have bought a couple of Belvest sportcoats on ebay before, and for considerably less, so I thought it was worth a shot.

    He has apparently improved his English translation services.

    Suit's going back tomorrow via some sort or registered international mail. I'm stuck with shipping costs on both ends apparently, which is a shame, but not the end of the world. Is it possible to dispute the shipping charges, or am I s.o.l.?

    The verdict is still out on the veracity of my coat. I too would be shocked to see a faked Belvest item. I bought from a similar post at AAAC http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...hlight=belvest
    I think the forum posting helped to relax my guard a bit and assume more risk than I would have otherwise. I will let people know how it turns out.

    As far as the suit is concerned, would a real belvest have lined up the pattern of the jacket and pocket? Or is this not always the case?


    I just took a quick look you are write, all my plaid belvests match on the pocket.

    I am wondering though if this guy is just getting factory overruns or other issues and is just reselling those. As soon as my coat is here I will take more pics.

    Not yet. To make matters worse I screwed up an gave him feedback by accident! Oops. I am confident it will show up soon as the seller has good feedback and is an active SF member.

    Finally got my refund. A pain, and a hassle that I'm out money because of it, but I figure ebay balances out.
