    Pre 1982-83 IIRC I think that is when they phased out that logo.

    Hai guise,
    I don't want to derail this too much but I'd appreciate your feedback since many of you are ebay pros. Any way, I recently sold a pair of Kirkland dress pants :embar: lol and today I got this message:

    Dear steveoly32,

    Regarding item 330732739368, the description states "You are bidding on a "pair" of Kirkland NWT Signature navy blue dress pants..." which is the reason I bid on the item, however, only one pair of pants, which are very nice by the way, arived today. Please advise.

    Thanks
    ,

    So the dude is literally wanting two pairs of pants for a pair of pants. He even refers to pants as "pair" of pants in his response! Am I grossly underestimating ebays semantics and am I therefore in the wrong for listing a pair of pants and then shipping (1) pair of pants, or can I tell this guy to go fuck himself? How would I list a pair of pants? A pant? WTF.

    The kicker, this winning bid was $9.95 with free shipping so after shipping and fees, it's a worthless sale. Should I just say I will refund upon the return of the pants? I'd probably be better off donating them and taking NWT retail deduction.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Must be a scam. Surely no one can be that stupid. Did you have more than one "pair" of pants pictured? If not, I'd tell him to take a hike personally.

    I'm not even sure what to say to that. Something like "I don't understand, you just said you got a pair of pants, which is what it was listed as"

    Maybe he's just messing with you?

    I hear ya, but his feedback looked fine.


    INORITE? At first when I read this I thought he was being a nice guy alerting me that I might have screwed up and sent two pairs of pants rather than just one pair. It's so stupid it's maddening.

    I think I will just politely message him back but in a "Are you kidding me" sort of way.

    WTF!! I would ask him to return it and then charge him a 50% moron fee. Maybe I should rethink how I have been listing all these pairs of shoes too.

    I went this route. I really don't think I am being off-base. However I would hate to get negged over something this frivolous.

    Dear ggamx,

    Hi Gordon,
    When I read this message I can't help but think that you are kidding, dense or a straight up scam artist. The auction was for a (singular) pair of pants, not multiple pairs of pants. With certain articles and garment, a singular item is referred to as a pair - i.e. pants, trousers, eyeglasses, scissors, etc. If I were selling multiple items, I would have referred to them as "two pairs" or "fifteen pairs" or "nine hundred pairs" - note the pluralization and quantity.

    Even in your message to me, you refer to as receiving "one pair of pants" so I am not sure as to the confusion.

    With this, I feel that I did describe the auction item correctly and accurately. I am sorry that you misinterpreted the item description. Enjoy the pair of pants. BTW, the Kirkland Made in Italy pants are very nice, and quite the deal for less than $10.

    Steve
