A little over a week ago I posted about jeans that I got which were different than the ones pictured in the auction. They were missing the Rock and Republic embroidered stamp and had some minor damage. After confirming authenticity here, I contacted the seller about this.

original post:

The seller has actually been very helpful. He's offered to give me some money in return for the damage/missing stamp, or return them for a full refund.
I've decided I want to keep them, so I was wondering how much money I should ask for? How much would it cost to get the jeans repaired at Nordstrom's? (estimates are ok)
Please refer to link above to see the damage.

I had a similar situation like yours, but I had more unreported flaws on my jean. Nord charged me more because I had more flaws to fix up, but based on ur ONE flaw, I'd estimate it as an $8 fix (because the pair did NOT originally come frm Nord, and therefore, the alteration fee will be higher).

I forgot to look at the auction in terms of what u were charged 4 shipping, but perhaps if it was something relatively high, u could split that amount w/the seller??? Then ur refund would be 1/2 shipping fee + $8 fix-up job.

Im glad its working out well for you... thats what being nice and not assuming the seller was trying to screw you can do :)

If, in the end, you want to keep them anyway... just go and get a real estimate and cover the cost... thats fair enough, since u got them for WAY under retail anyway... be fair as the seller is being fair to you... if you get crazy asking for 30+$ the seller is going to assume you're trying to screw them and wont be as likely to give you anything.

this happened to me once too. there was one teeny tiny flaw that the seller forgot to mention and she refunded me half of what i paid! ($90)
i wasn't complaining, i was only expecting just the shipping fees at least but the seller was super duper nice! i'm sure around $20 is good enough to fix that.

I think $10-$15 is fair :) $20 would be nice, but I don't think I'd be able to bring myself to ask for that if the seller is being so nice about it.

I had a pair come with a huge flaw in the back - slits or something. The seller was a big lying bitch so I escalated to a claim and said I wanted $25 back. I actually only wanted $20, but I said $25 in case she wanted to bargain. She got scared and refunded me my $25 :D
