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.

    I just bought two pairs of pants from an Ebay seller.   The first was a pair of RLPL linen trousers that I intend to keep, the second was a pair of charcoal wool herringbone trousers. They look nice as casual pants, but they were marked as 29/32 and measure 33 1/4" waist/31" inseam (which sounds more like a 31-32" pant depending on the designer).

    BNWT Polo Pants
    Fabric content: 30 lambswool/70 wool
    PRICE: too cheap
    RETAIL: $145

    Priced for quick sale.  OT: What do people do about deadbeat seller responses?  This wasn't the sellers fault necessarily, but I've received NO feedback.

    I'd be interested in the wool pants -- are they pleat or flant front. More details and pics would be great.

    That's why Ebay sucks - you can't give the seller negative feedback b.c. or even say, oh by the way, the waist was 4 inches bigger than isted, because then he will give you negative feedback to be vindictive. If they want to have a feedback system that actually means something, they have to come up with a better scheme. I've given positive feedback for sellers who took forever to deliver items, and were just really bad to deal with. Why? Because if I didn't they would give me negative, even though I pay 30 seconds after the item ends... It's a really stupid system.

    Great pants.  Something I could really use, but not my size.

    Feedback is kind of flawed on ebay, imho,  and I have 400+ feedback dating to 1998 - although the first 250 or so was due to buying and then selling comic books - don't laugh.  Probably 60% of my feedback is buying.  

    Anyway, that's why I've started using this forum.  Throwing out the names can get you a feel for who is worth dealing with and who isn't.   Who pushes the system, and who consistently beats, if not shatters, expectations (like Chuck from sartorialsolutions).

    I started out on ebay selling comics in '98. Actually, I have more I need to list one of these days.

    No kidding... I have a box of comics I should have someone sell for me. Or would it be worth putting up as a lot? It's mostly the first of the Image comics, all the #1s, etc. and some Marvel, Valiant, etc. I have no idea what they're worth.

    yeah, Image isn't too hot. High supply, very low demand. Some of those Image #1's came out at over a million in the print runs. Youngblood #1, anybody?
