    quick question, for ebay sellers, does "buy it now" and "make offer" subject to same ebay fees? (from seller point of view)

    Yes. eBay charges sellers 10% of the final price and shipping charge + HST.

    One of the seller told me by using different method (buy it now vs make offer), he got charged by Ebay differently. So it's pretty much that he's lying?

    Maybe he means he got charged a different amount? Or he could be trying to recoup some money if taking an offer. Who knows?

    Regardless, the percentage is 10% in most categories, with a few exceptions. I sell on eBay on occasion and that's what it's been like for the past 2-3 years. (I have no sales from offers in the past several months so I can't double check.) Unless something has changed recently without my knowledge...

    Morning Fellas. Other than Spier and Mackay, where else do you guys purchase your dress shirts from? Under $100 please.

    I hate to be that guy but I don't see a reason to look beyond Spier and Mackay, especially since we're local.

    Good value, great fabric selection, and MTM at your price point.

    That is fair. However, I recently outgrew the 14.5 slim fit and the 15 slim fit has too much room in the back. Darts can solve this issue but just wondering what other options out there.

    My wardrobe is 95% Spier and Mackay.

    At the risk of a mob attack... I go to Tom's Place during their sales at the airport centre. I grabbed 25 Cornelliani shirts for $25 a piece. Some needed tailoring, and others were a great fit.

    For the quality of the materials, durability, and brand, I don't think you can do better. All made in Italy.

    I know the store itself is a mess and the sales guys are greasy. But it's worth checking them out.

    I’ve been there, they don’t carry anything in smaller sizes

    15 ESF, fits good in the chest, neck and shoulders but the arm hole is too small. So it's pulling and uncomfortable.

    Just MTM based on that with some tweaks.

    Honestly I like SM for “dress” shirts, and have no desire to go elsewhere. Maybe an individualized from Epaulet (I have 2 in casual fabrics).

    I just wish SM had better casual fabrics. I’m buying more Gitman and Portuguese Flannel for those these days. More relaxed fit, better patterns.
    It’s hard to get small lengths of hr good casual stuff. I’ve bugged Rick many times.
