Is it just me or does this seem all very weird? This listing is fishy and people really are bidding on it.

Recreating because other thread is saging.

>> No.10627811

no way baby would ever be THAT sloppy, definitely a fake

>> No.10627838

Nah, this is fine. I've owned a fair few older Baby cutsews and they all had somewhat janky tags.

Wow the bloodbath on CC was bad today. Paypal being broken/down at the moment probably threw everything into chaos.

>> No.10627951

Some of my baby cutsews have shit like this. It looks old from the pics posted here, and washing and drying affects the tag, since the knit material warps and shrinks whereas the tag does not

>> No.10627971

I hardly believe scammers would work with such a clothing item as cutsew, the profit is just not worth it as well as I'm sure its not like there are a shit ton of replicas specifically of Baby cutsews

Is there any tool/browser extension/whatever to get instantaneous LM notifications when a saved search pops up? Like google alerts or something? I missed a DD recently from LM, never even got an email that the saved search hit

>> No.10628009

LM sends emails at most once daily, but you may have set the settings on your saved search to be less frequent than that. And it will usually only do it at one time a day for each saved search, not as soon as it shows up so you may get it soon after it's listed or after it's already purchased. Not sure about browser extensions. The only LM one I know of is the one that lets you block certain users/sellers.

>> No.10628236

I don't know what item this from just the pic is so I don't have full context but I have had a few older baby pieces with janky labels. I've also had to re-sew in labels that have started to fall off (not on baby pieces though) and it's possible the owner or previous owner did that and did a poor job

Detachable collar as well.

IDK. The cutsew just looks like something you can buy off of Aliexpress

>> No.10628265

Jesus fucking christ it looks like every other casual cutsew from that era. If you’re this neurotic about a label, then don’t bid.

>> No.10628273

Don't be sad, anon. The dress was 55,000 yen and the pink headbow was 8800 yen. Hardly good prices.
Just wait for people to hate Dreamy Baby Room again because ~ageplay~. It's only a matter of time.

>> No.10628274

I don't think you are understanding. The label looks sewn in. The collar isn't even detachable, realistically. It's just a collar that lays on there. There's no buttons or attachment.

I'm just saying, the listing looks fishy. It's not about whether or not I want it, moron.

How are they located in the US with that bad of grammar?

>> No.10628419

I agree with this assessment as a seamstress; knits and wovens (and the labels are woven) don't distort the same way and that's why those style of woven label (vs the in-seam hanging type or printed on) isn't that common on knits. Especially not for a t-shirt type knit which cutsews generally are

Why is Japanese secondhand so dead? Did we buy up everything?

>> No.10628502

bidders maybe could ask for a pics of the other label (the one with washing instructions) if they have the same doubts. it usually has the brand name and sometimes the item code.

what the f it’s a hair clip

>> No.10629308

I think there's someone bringing up the price on purpose to see how far it can go at this point, and they're not even hiding it in the comments (or their bio for that matter) either. The price was originally at $16 and then it just shot up to $300....

Normally when a price goes that high, bidders have full intention of winning. It's a bidding war.

Also, another reason I think you're wrong anon is that they're bidding on other items from the same seller too as well

>> No.10629344

Maybe the seller has a throwaway account to bid up their items to trick desperate people into paying more.

nayrt but why are you so annoying?

>> No.10629349

Before recent account verification methods, it was easy to have a second LM (I even made a second one to keep anons on cgl from scrutinizing my purchases on my main account)

It wouldn't be that hard to use the account to bid up your own listings since unless someone reported it mods would probably not be checking IPs on every login and looking for it.

>> No.10629354

Just looked that this person's profile and they are a self-proclaimed "collector" ("retired from sweet"). My best guess is that they get off from seeing high prices so they can brag about owning "expensive" AP items, that are just artificially inflated.
Either that or the seller already agreed on a price with the buyer privately, and it's just a placeholder bid.
Either way, it's pretty stupid.

The staining didn’t come out with dry cleaning
And one of the button holes was really frayed, I got it patched up by a seamstress but it’s still noticeable, (the dress is front buttoning) not so much when covered by the button though but at the end of the day it’s still damage

Idk if this somewhat shows what I mean

>> No.10630075

oh shit, sorry didn't realize there were more. why not just ask them to refund you for the amount that the cleaning service and tailor cost you, plus a little more?

dry cleaning techniques aren't always very stain-busting, it's worth doing an oxyclean paste on the affected areas.

>> No.10630077

Should probably say it did come with socks too just for transparency sake, and it was also bidding so I chose to pay that much, but again, was only expecting slight yellowing, which I don’t mind I think it’s a charm of older pieces, and a couple loose buttons which a non issue they’re so easy to fix

>> No.10630082

That looks like pretty substantial damage. If you had not paid a seamstress, it's potentially a throw away. I see people drop the price of something all the way down to mid-50's for this amount of damage. It depends on the piece, for sure but this is a lot for something over 500$.. You should be asking for way more back, because you'll have a hard time ever making that back with the damage on there if you chose to resold.

>> No.10630096

older meta lace at the collar always sits weird in my experience. you can lightly (and gently) steam it to get it to sit a bit straighter, but because of the way it is sewn, it will always be kinda weird.

Been a lolita since 2004 and have a lot of meta pieces with that lace that does the same.
