    damn, those look like marks from staples

    I hope you didn't send payment as a gift.

    Fortunately I did not send as a gift payment. I will go ahead and contact Paypal to open up a case, have yet to hear back from the seller on my most recent message. In hindsight I suppose I was being a little naive, thanks for the helpful advice gentlemen.

    no problem. I hope it all works out for you.

    Just make sure, if you do end up getting a full refund, you should not pay for the shipping entirely. If you guys agree and split the cost, that's cool and your prerogative, but there's no reason you should foot the entire bill if you would not have purchased at all to begin with.

    You may want to state the seller's name too in case he tries to pull this off to someone else.

    appears to have been caused by an animal. I'm guessing a sunbear.

    I wouldn't until it's over and definitive. Even then I would only release the name under certain circumstances, just because I do not like airing out others dirty laundry.


    or a pedobear???

    not necessary for him to state my name...it was me

    lets clear the air here...

    i purchased it new from another SF member who made no mention of the marks

    i did not notice the marks myself

    now, i have had it for a few months or so and have tried it on twice...otherwise, it has sat in my closet and been untouched

    George - i would suggest making a decision on your own as to how to proceed in this situation rather than going off what other members say...there's plenty of time to open a paypal dispute and it's a path that wasn't necessary to go down

    i would like to hear what Drew has to say about it...not sure if it's possible that some leathers happen to have marks like shown on the sleeve due to how it had been handled previously or if it's something that tends to happen in the production process from time to time

    regardless, it was not disclosed in the listing because i was not aware of it...i assure you my intentions were not to deceive :foo:

    if anyone wants to see other pics of the jacket they can been seen on the gallery - pics 175-179 and pic 187...you cannot see any signs of the damage in any of the pics but then again there are no close ups of the left shoulder

    well just because you didn't see the marks and the previous seller didn't see them either doesn't mean it's not your fault for not looking at the item conditions carefully before listing it up for sale imo

    it is true that you should always carefully look over anything you sell, especially if it was so evident to the recipient who noticed it immediately.

    Listen, nobody here is against you (well I'm not at least) I am just trying to help the other guy out and let him know his options. I wouldn't have even brought your name up, tbh. I am just telling him that a dispute does not hurt either you or him, but it extends the time you guys can negotiate.

    No need for a witch hunt, it may have been an honest careless mistake. We can wait to see what Drew says about the marks. I have already offered to split return shipping.

    fwiw, i got a varsity when they were first introduced and it had some stitch holes in the leather near the armpit. these don't look like stitch holes, but lots of things happen during the manufacturing process.
