Thanks once again u plus 3 is other believers tell me it’s a keeper so it’s all goodThis is the risk when buying from Japan via an auction house. You can't ask questions and the translations are vague and confusing.
If there is doubt I don't bid. If the pictures are not assisting with the decision I don't bid. In a decade of buying from Japan I have had
a few jackets arrive that are a lot smaller than expected, adorned with cigarette smoke and the odd knit issue that I could not detect. I
have never had a fake purchased from the BR section. What was the start price on the jacket auction? Just remember you bid it up.
Caveat emptor. Same as on eBay. If this jacket went on eBay the price would have been even higher.
My 'daily wearer' is an M model Buzz Rickson. As good as new after 15 years. My go to jacket for my two hours of airconditioned, post
dinner bliss in the tropics.
It looks like you are just unhappy with the price vs jacket. Been there, done that. Buyee, the Forum and on eBay. Make a Paypal claim
and cross your fingers they don't required you to ship the jacket back... That would be a nightmare. Get your money, flip the jacket on
eBay and get paid twice for the jacket.
