We can agree that $800 isn't the end of the world, but that doesn't really matter imo. We'll have to (strongly) disagree on this.Let's say someone ordered a jacket by paying Drew in cash (local deal). Drew said 'you'll have your jacket in 12-16 weeks'. 80 weeks later, no jacket, so the customer posts on a forum where potential Drew customers hang out and tells his story. Drew reads the posts and tells the guy 'fuck you, you're not getting a jacket. Sue me if you want'....
Okay. I've just been lurking and marvelling at this thread, which has truly delivered.Your other posts don't seem too absurd, but this one is....hard to believe, to put it politely. So you're suggesting this guy would be 'screwing someone else' by hanging on to a jacket that has shown up after 18 months, sent by a group of people who have fucked over their best customers and suggested that anyone who complains about it is an asshole? A group of people who have taken their...
Someone in the earlier thread asked how the wholecuts run. I added the info to the main post as well. I am a natural 10D right on the number and these are a tiny bit big on me. Having said that, they're not too big for me to wear. I'm not an expert on Euro shoe sizing but according to the conversion charts I'm seeing online, these are a standard 43 which is somewhere around or a little larger than a U.S. 10D (rarely smaller, so it seems, but again correct me if I'm...
** I haven't been keeping up with this listing but these are both still here. Had a lot of interest but no takers. I'm up for trades if anyone has anything they want to move! Must be 10D.** Up for sale are 2 pair of BNIB Stefano Bemer for Valextra. Prices include shipping to USA/Canada. Only members with some feedback here, please. I’m not a serious shoe guy like some of you so if anyone has any pertinent information about these that I’ve missed, please post here or PM...
Fairly predictable response when you come into a thread where there are a bunch of people who think _____ is amazing and say 'I've seen ______ and it's nothing special'. On top of that, we see the pic.As you said, he made a few valid points, badly.
I'm sorry, but if you actually bought that studded abomination pictured earlier (at any price) your assessment of what's 'special' is actually a contrarian indicator.In addition, if you paid $1500 for a leather jacket, you're admitting that value calculations are subjective.
Guys, I'm in NYC today and tomorrow. Can anyone suggest a few places i can go to look for a decent deal on shoes? Budget is $200-$400. Looking specifically for something to replace my Santoni Elliston oxfords but also need single monks. Want to stick to Manhattan if possible. Any advice is appreciated.
Considering that jackets are being delivered recently, I'd say this is a bit melodramatic. More accurate to say that anyone who places an order or buys a spot now is a risk taker.Doesn't change the fact that the whole thing is a total train wreck, but the outcome is still up in the air.
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the problem here is that these order were placed (literally) years ago and the cc companies have a time limit on requesting chargeback.
Fair enough, but if I had been waiting almost 2 years for a jacket and had seen multiple promised delivery dates come and go and communications between the company and its customers shut down, that jab at the end would feel like an elbow smash to the jaw hinge.Having said that, at this point I guess it's pretty naive to expect any sort of Mea Culpa from these guys. Too bad. I have a TOJ jacket here that I grabbed from B & S and I would definitely buy a new one, if I had...
