Hi all, just wanted to report a bad experience on ebay and hear your thoughts. I pulled the trigger on a Real McCoy's Roughwear 27752 this week in russet goatskin. The seller included a number of pics that showed the jacket to be in a fairly well used condition but appearing to have a nice patina and no major flaws. The only wear and tear mentioned in the description was around the collar. Quote from the advert: WORN WELL WITH AMAZING PATINA AND IT HAS BEEN SAID, GETTING HARD TO DISTINGUISH FROM AN ORIGINAL ROUGHWEAR. THE CUFFS AND WAISTBAND ARE IN GOOD CONDITION AND THE TRIPLE TALON 1940's VERSION TYPE ZIPPER WORKS WELL. THE INSIDE OF THE COLLAR SHOWS WEAR AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PICTURES ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT DETRIMENTAL TO WEARING IT AND DOES ADD TO THAT WAR TIME LOOK. Fine I thought, I can live with a bit of wear around the collar and the leather looks good so I'll go for it. I paid £380. When it arrived I immediately saw that the there were places where the stitching had worn away and disappeared completely. The right hand pocket has the worst of it. There's 2 inches missing from one of the vertical seams and 1 inch missing from the bottom seam. On the left pocket there's 2 areas with 2 or 3 stitches missing. On one of the sleeves there's an inch missing. I think this should have been mentioned in the description as especially on the pockets its only going to get worse and compromise the functionality of the jacket. A further concern is that there's a small white label sewn into the lining that says 'REAL LEATHER cleaning entrust to specialist leather cleaner'. I thought Real Mccoy's jackets were made in Japan or New Zealand. I have been in touch with the seller to describe the stitching issue and say I want to return but he refuses: I am pleased you received the jacket promptly The jacket is not described as brand new. It is a used worn jacket. The pictures listed clearly showed the jacket in a used format and your comment about serious flaws is incorrect. As stated the jacket was a firm sale with no returns and the description and the photos in the sale clearly show the jacket correctly. Wearers of repro flying jackets in my experience are looking for a vintage worn look which this jacket offers rather than new. Is it acceptable to sell a used jacket and not mention the issues I've described? Any thought's appreciated!
