What are the measurements?
Full suit. Sorry, should have been more clear.
@woolnotmutton (since I don't know how to multiquote): It's tagged a 40R. I took some quick measurements, though:
BOC: approx. 30.75"
Inseam (measured directly under crotch): approx. 31.5", w/ about 3" to let out.
I'll have some pics later.
Edit: Forgot to mention, the jacket waist feels a bit tighter than I'm used to at 40 anything. Feels more like a 38.
I'll give you 30 whole American dollars. I'll even pay shipping!
nice score loro piana stuff goes for a good amount on ebay, not sure about 100% cotton ones though.. I would check complete listings and decide a price based on that.
jacket a bit short for me.. I hate having a size right b/w long and regular..
oh, i'm sure it's not THAT short
I think Achilles is right, these damned Polo bear sweaters are cursed. Just got scammed out of the sweater and $800.
Yikes. How does this happen? Forgive me, as I'm a relative ebay n00b, but how does the scam work that causes you to lose the money and the sweater. If you do tracking/signature confirmation or whatever, how does the scammer end up taking you for everything?
That sucks so much, I can't even imagine. Sorry for your troubles, Nataku.
He even did PP personal payment...
The buyer certainly did receive the sweater... She is just bullshitting. I don't really know how people like that sleep at night. I've encountered scammers too and lost around $80 in one case he had me sent to 2 different addresses and he said his friend would pay his half. which he ultimately charged back for. I'm thinking that this was done outside of ebay which is a issue of concern, but I posted in Nats thread.
Yeah, but even if it is done only through Paypal, isn't there a dispute system? Like, if they claim that they never received the item, and you have a paper trail (delivery confirmation or signature from the mailer, etc.), why would you still lose out?
But Paypal usually sides with the buyer. Paypal is bullshit imo, but there are ways to fight it, you just have to be persistent.
Thing is a lot of ppl give up b/c they don't want to deal with the hassle, but if you call every day usually your outcome will be better.
+1. I've been on Paypal at least twice a day and think I may haven them siding with me. Contacted the Postal Inspectors and they called me back this morning. She purposefully gave me the zip code to the next town over so it would hop back and forth through processing centers and cause a bit of confusion when you looked at the tracking #. They also talked to the carrier who delivered it and he said the package showed no damage/signs of being tampered with. The buyer will not respond when I ask her "How was it tampered with? What kind of t-shirt was in there? Was the box re-wrapped? Any USPS tape?". Paypal is getting a little suspicious about her when I shared this info with them this morning.
Thank goodness! I hope they track her down and put a mark on her credit or something.
