    Anything from the seller "linda*s***stuff". How the heck this seller has 364,926 feedback on Ebay is amazing.

    Take for instance this listing:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAUL-STUART...SA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item3cd3d83022

    I guess the seller doesn't have an iron, lol.

    Descriptions such as:

    •Collar: Fold down pointed, notched collar and lapel
    •Sleeve Type: Long Sleeves
    •Neckline: V-neck
    •Print or Graphic(s): Striped
    •Embellishment(s)/Embroidery: None
    •Number of Pockets and Location: Two on lower front
    •Lining: Lining on the front and sleeves
    •Closure: Buttons

    Classic, in a BAD, BAD way.

    I have e-thrifted and flipped multiple items from Linda's Stuff - always BINOBO items with their auto-accept feature set to a pretty low amount. I guess with over 163,000 active listings, things will slip under their radar. They are a consignor - no idea how they manage / stock / obtain that many items...they're also hooked up with Rue La La which features their higher-end handbags etc on occasion.

    [ EDIT: sorry, I keep forgetting about multi-quote ]

    All the listings claiming to be shell cordovan when clearly... It's all calf.

    I ran into a problem over the weekend where I didn't look closely enough at a listing listed as a pair of shell cordovan saddle shoes. The next day I noticed my mistake and asked the seller to retract my bid; he would refuse and claimed the shoes were "most definitely shell." I guess he didn't check Google when I told him to... Luckily some other schmuck outbid me [​IMG]

    Excellent thread idea Cap. Here's one that caught my eye the other day and still has me puzzled:

    Almost bought an auction from her a few weeks ago to do this where she misspelled Brioni "Briary".

    I think I posted about it in the thrift thread about a year ago but I stumbled upon an auction for AE brogues in which every hole had been painted sloppily with white-out. The seller was completely nonchalant about it too as if people did that to their shoes all the time.

    I remember that post. Sometimes office boredom can have terrible results.

    That's how I came across her originally - via typohound.com. Ferragamo tie on the cheap.

    Naturally, Craigslist is a goldmine for questionable images...
