Hi guys, I believe you guys have many experience buy garments online on Yoox or Ebay !

Seller often call all the 3 button (include 3 roll 2 button) as "3 button front" and usually button the First one ! I understand they do that to avoid potential return or buyer remorse in the future.

But do you have any tip to distinguish the real HARD 3 BUTTON and the 3 roll 2 button just by looking at the seller's photo?

Many many thanks !

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
