    Just so you know, thats not "technically" an ebay misspell, because "Zegna" is spelled correctly in the item specific section, and thus would come up under a search. In fact, some savvy sellers misspell the brand in the title on purpose (and correctly spell it in the item specific) so that the auction also attracts those looking for misspellings. :teach:

    Ahh good point. I guess something like that would have made more sense a few years ago when they didn't have the description box where you actually select the brand.

    Piddling around yesterday and found one of these Cross Pens (not the set, just the pen) with the genuine plastic presentation box and instructions for changing the refill. It was sitting on top of a pair of shoes. $2. You can probably pick one up for twenty but it was new and I like slender pens.

    This is interesting. Is is more gray or does it show as brown?

    It is Gray with a beige stripe, but it does have a little brownish tint to it compaired to the other gray suit I posted.

    I forgot to mention that I'm looking for Isaia hangers now. If anyone has any that they will sell, shoot me a PM. I just bought my Isaia garment bag off the bay for $15, not a bad deal!

    Huh, don't know if I would have just come out with it like that. You have to automatically assume he is mentally insane, right. But I always give people more time to pay if they contact me.

    I had a few zingers this week too.

    Monday:
    "Sorry can you cancel my bid my kid was playing with my phone I didn't notice he was on eBay please am sorry for the inconvenience"

    Thursday:
    "I'm so sorry i click on the bid process looking at the photos thinking it was two jackets. one of the pictures look like it was a blue jacket so i thought it was a lot of 2. I would not like to purchase this jacket thank you."

    Note ---I have no clue what he was talking about. The listing was clearly for one jacket. He did BIN at the last second instead of making the minimum starting bid. I assume it was buyers remorse. Offered it to him for the starting bid. Declined.---

    Today:
    "hello m8 i'm sorry to tell you that the bid placed on your shoes was mistakenly clicked by my children as i had left my account signed on therefore i'm unable to make payment for it so please accept my apology, even if i had to buy for the sake of it is not even my size its way too small for me, kindly request you to re list your item and sorry for any inconvinience caused to you.
    kindly regards"


    Neither of them have accepted the transaction cancellation so at this point I am out like $50 in fees until 7 days have passed and the case is closed by ebay.

    also just had someone ask if I could ship a pair of Alden's to Japan. He seems to have a very reliable history and (+) feedback though ~500. How much is shipping to Japan? :O
