    A mate of mine does it. Gets some good stuff off there but like you say can't be sure its all real. I go into town try something on and get the right size, then go on ebay and look for it :)

    I've done it before and my favourite pair is jeans are from ebay. It's better if you can go to a shop but if you ask for real mesurements it's usualy fine.

    try it on in the shops, then buy it off ebay. I do that with the shoes I buy off there. Only bought a jumper, a pair of jeans, some shoes and a few teeshirts off there and they were all real.

    Nope, and never will.

    Go to the shops, its so much quicker, and your not wearing clothes that someone has already worn.

    I don't normally, but it looks like I'm going to have to for an upcoming OcUK meet. It's only for one night though, so I don't care if it's tat (provided it's clean, fits and doesn't fall apart).

    Well people sell new things on there, which means they have the tag on them still. That's what he's trying to get at, not everything on there is used.

    I bought a shirt off of ebay for the Essex meet. There was a mark on the front which should wash out.

    She's getting no feedback from me.

    As for fake/real. I would bet on most of it being fake.
