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,

    Fok.

    Hi guys-

    Just looking to move a few of these without bothering with eBay listings right now as I’ll be going out-of-town again shortly.

    These great items are all NEW (most have tags attached) and have been listed with EXTREMELY reasonable prices. I am always willing to cut a deal on shipping and will do free domestic Priority Mail shipping for anything over $50 total (others for a flat $5).

    You can either PM me here or email [email protected] with the items that you’d like and I’ll send you a PayPal invoice. Once the item has been sold, I'll update the listing as such. Thanks again…

    Good question. The sleeve length on #1 is 23 inches and it is 19 inches from seam-to-seam across the back. I hope that helps!

    23" is too short for me - too bad.

    I emailed the seller, Shawn Tedman, the day he originally posted this sale and agreed to purchase the first coat for $79.00.

    He immediately sent me a PayPal invoice, which I immediately paid on August 25.

    Since then, I have not received the coat, and he has not responded to any of numerous emails inquiring into the status of the purchase.

    Did anybody else who purchased from him receive their items?

    If not, be warned not to do business with this person.

    It's only $79.00, but this still sucks.

    He said he was going out of town on vacation, if I remember. Is it possible the money didn't clear right away? I've bought things from him before, and he's been an honest guy and fine to deal with, if not always the absolute fastest shipper.

    I recieved my tie quickly and just as described - great service. Have you contacted the postal service to see if it was lost?

    I've bought from him before and received great service. I'd give him the benefit of the doubt for now. He may be out of town or away from his email. I'd be very surprised if he didn't make things right for you. Good luck!

    Funny that you brought this up.
    I was about to do it myself.
    I,too paid for a cotton suit through paypal but haven't received the suit.
    The seller is not responding to my email enquiries so I filed a dispute on paypal today.

    Ditto everything that Baron said. I've made many purchases from Shawn, and he's always been a really great seller to deal with. Based on those experiences, I would advise the folks who are waiting on items to try to hang tight for now. I'd also be very surprised if he doesn't fully rectify the situation as soon as he's read the e-mails.
