PM Measurements on the 36's what size is the J Press approx?
The J Press is labeled a 42R and fits me pretty well, except for the sleeves needing an extra 1/2" or so
Bummer today. Went to pick up the navy Polo for Evan ANNNNNND, the pants were gone. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU it was so nice. Picked up the jacket and vest regardless cause it was so nice.
Well, the other Polo suit had the pants, if anyone is interested I could go pick it up for them tomorrow. Size 40R it's 25% Angora 75% Wool
SPOO ITS CALLING OUT FOR YOU.
Oh yah. Kiton pants while I was searching for the navy pants.
At Marshall's. I love this place.
Oh yeah wtf, Kiton pants cost as much as a Polo suit.
Oh if anyone wants the Kiton pants, they're charcoal and size 36.
Just my luck, of course. Here's hoping they turn up!
Two pairs of Boss pants, both around a 32" waist. Probably available.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Ferragamo cords. Probably keep these if I can get over the pleats. Interesting leather accents.

[EDIT: Just found them. Phew.]
Anyone ever misplace an item you listed on eBay?
I just sold a pair of Ferragamo wingtips. Went to box them up to ship and...they're nowhere to be found. Either they were stolen (I had a guy doing repairs in my apartment this week while I wasn't there) or I accidentally tossed them out with the trash.
Any tips on how to handle this with the buyer to avoid negative feedback?
Once I sold a laptop that I hadn't used in forever. Buyer paid, and although it had worked fine the last time I tried it, figured it couldn't hurt to try. Lo and behold, batter no longer holds a charge. I just e-mailed the guy and very politely said, listen, I discovered a problem, and I'm about to issue you a refund but I can ship the computer anyway if you'd prefer. He thanked me and took his money back. No harm, no foul. I bet if I'd just refunded him and then apologized right away, explaining the situation, he would've reacted the same way. Still have 100%.
Tl,dr - Just talk to the guy nicely and display your sterling charm and customer-service skills. Guy'll probably just be happy you aren't scamming him.
^^ Thanks for the advice. Luckily I just found them, in a very unlikely place. Awkward situation avoided this time.
+1 I've had something similar happen that either an item got lost somehow...or I noticed damage when packing (missing button, etc) that was somehow missed when cleaning, taking pictures and listing the 1st time around. Best bet is to just offer a full refund or a partial refund and ship up to the buyer of course. I think most normal people understand mistakes happen and would rather deal with an honest upfront seller instead of a guy trying to pull a fast one.
