    buyer beware Ebay listing

    Just a heads-up if anyone is watching this on Ebay, the listing is incorrect and I've told the seller so.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Arg...p2056016.l4276

    It's purportedly a "complete uniform" of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders.

    It is not.

    The kilt is not A&SH but rather is in MacKenzie tartan.

    The Glengarry is not A&SH but is either a civilian one or from a different regiment.

    The doublet and sporran are A&SH so if that's all you're wanting it's fine.

    If desired, you can report bogus items to eBay before somebody gets ripped off buying them and they will usually pull the listing or force the seller to correct it. Maybe they would even make him turn the kilt around so that the pleats are in back.

    The issue is that the Ebay report thing is a series of dropdown menus, each with a limited number of topics.

    Often none of the offered choices relate to what the issue is.

    You have to take the lawyer approach which is to select the thing closest even if it seems over the top like claiming a fraudulent auction or whatever term they use. This then forces the seller to change it.
    Or to put it another way, use a hammer to squash an ant, it costs you nothing and no one really loses. I've done this before on non-ebay sites in regards coins which are rife with misrepresented auctions.

    eBay kinda stinks. Choose US only and ads come up with pounds at times or you know it's from Pakistan etc. Some of the prices seem obscenely low. I have to wonder if they are that bad. Almost too much info to sort through to get to anything good. Etsy isn't any better really. Amazon, a little bit. Lots of data, most not that good. Maybe I need to use better keywords.
