Ebay issue - who is right?
I bought these boots on ebay a few days ago. Click
The title clearly says 17" calf, and in the measurements, circumference is listed as 19" around
I received them yesterday, and they are the 19" size (listed on the inside of the boot). I measured them as 20" around the top of the boot. She says that 19" refers to the circumference on the inside of the top of the boot but around
to me clearly means the outside!
I e-mailed the seller and this is what she said:
I don't know how else to explain it, yes David tate makes both sizes, that is why I specifically measure the calf and put 'their' circumference in the auction, because 19" isn't the calf width, that is the inside circumference of the boots, it stated in the auction where I measure the calf - I do this as a total convenience to my customers so they know exactly what they are buying. The circumference at the top isn't 20 inches, it is 19 you have to allow for the material, you would measure the inside of the top of the boots to get 19 inches. |
There is no way I mislead you, I put every single meaurement in that auction, if you wanted to buy David Tates 17" boots - the calf would only measure about 15 1/2 inches, but the circumference at the top would be 17 - but buyers are very mislead by that - because David tate is saying their circumference is 19 or 17 inches NOT THE CALF - which is what buyers need to know, that is why I put BOTH measurements in the auction.
Should I file an item not as described?
