    Dior makes a drop-10 suit; I was wondering the other day what body type a person would need to wear that, and now you come up with something that's almost a drop-20? :wow:

    Oh, another Rochesterian? Damn... competition :)

    Seriously though, PM me if you want to meet up to go thrifting.

    I've heard nothing but good things. I've never had one myself.

    Nope. Nataku did that with a bear sweater, POS buyer did a charge back and got her money back and kept the sweater. Then sold the sweater for $1500. Still makes me ticked to this day.

    ^That's a house label for the now-defunct Harold's chain. It's probably fine if you like it and it fits, but I doubt you could sell it for much.


    Yes, very good quality. They've also recently done a Gitman heritage line a la Gant Rugger, etc. Gitman also makes for other labels like Burberry.

    Seconded wrt making my blood boil. As a general rule, I'm pretty "un-spiritual." That said, I kinda sorta hope there's some sort of jah out there and, further, that he/she sees it fit to give the bear sweater thief some sort of lifelong bowel disease.

    Gitman Bros and Gitman Vintage (the above-mentioned heritage line) are both made in the US and have really high production standards. In my experience, Gitman Vintage shirts sell for a good deal more than Gitman Bros (for whatever reason), but both are pretty easy to move.

    The buyer put something about the sweater in the payment. Evidently that is enough for paypal. There is no way a seller can get back at a dishonest buyer, not sure why they (ebay/paypal) figured that would work...

    Only because it was through eBay though. If it's a direct payment on PayPal they shouldn't be able to.

    Could be. My understanding is that if they pay with a credit card, they can do a charge back no matter how they pay through paypal.

    I believe so. The seller can claim you put a t-shirt in the box (like the Nataku buyer did). The seller sent back a used blue t-shirt.
