yeah don't know what to say. Is it really that outrageous? I like to think that as share of net income it's still reasonable. I hope anyway. I don't know. Since my online shopping is spread between so many different delivery addresses, no 1 person in my real life is aware of its full extent. ok maybe I have the odd moment when I wonder myself if things are approaching Patrick-Bateman-level lunacy but honestly, it's never long before some guy at my work complains about a...
LOL thanks but I have doubts this kind of behaviour is something to aspire to Apparently. The funny thing is though I don't know any more what they all are (or where). If you asked me to enumerate them I'm not sure I could give you even 50, off the top of my head. And this is only Yoox, outside of the "occasional" non-Yoox purchase. While this kind of mathematical reasoning is obviously a fallacy (you're equating raincoats to undershirts to duffle bags to sweatpants to...
Brandnew, never worn. Genuine RRP (e.g. as seen on solestruck) was 849.95 USD. Made in Italy. Vibram sole. Metal side zipper. Size 42. (Pics show me standing in size 41, which I am keeping for myself.) Price includes postage for a traceable parcel to US/Canada and within EU. Other locations please ask.
well I took a half hour to do my personal Yoox statistics and it turns out I fit ^this description of a loyal customer pretty well:First-ever Yoox order: 18 December 2013Most recent: 14 May 2015-> period covered = 1 year, 5 monthsTotal # of orders placed: 126Sites ordered from: Belgium (74), Germany (29), France (19), Italy (2), Luxembourg (1), US (1)# of orders kept wholly: 37Total # of items ordered: 391Total # of items returned: 171 (43.7 per cent)Total value ordered:...
Classified_,I am easily in the same size/proportions group as you (tall, 28 waist, UK36 chest), probably even a little skinnier than you judging by these pictures.I think the shorts already look a lot better in the second picture w/o the cardigan, perhaps for the same reason why I much prefer the Acne stock image (minus the beanie which looks totally incongruous) to the Mr Porter picture. In Acne's image, top and bottom half convey the same season.Having said that, I have...
it's mainly the shorts' fault though, they are too short/tiny
Depends on what you mean by "horrendous". Do you mean the way things look on Yoox? I've said it before; Yoox has a knack for photographing excellent clothes such that they look like the dog's dinner. The trick is knowing brands (or better yet, individual items) from previous experience. A lot of my best Yoox finds were items that looked like department-store-bargain-bin stuff in Yoox's pictures.As for issues with getting money back, absolutely not. In the last couple of...
I have the same knit. Crazy.Interesting way to wear it.
Perhaps, but looking at the more recent stuff (runway shots anyway) I can't help but get the impression that he is doing things now that he might not have done (not been allowed to do) under her.In fact I vaguely remember him being quoted somewhere (IIRC in a write-up on style.com of one of the recent collections) as saying - not in so many words - that he is now working his "own sensibilities" into the house aesthetic.Which is fair enough; I nowhere near like everything...
I used to when I began building up a more informal wardrobe. Have since branched out to other online stores, mostly matchesfashion and stylebop. Also The Corner and (last year, not so much now) Alexander Wang's own Web store, but then those are both Yoox again. Mr Porter a few times whenever they had sales. Plus one-time orders (so far) with East Dane, fwrd, Barneys, jades24, breuninger, civiconove, cloth and a couple of others. Having said that I estimate Yoox still...
