The small things (10-20 per cent off for minor issues) have always occurred now and then since when I started shopping on Yoox, long before the merger. The two bigger instances I recounted in my earlier post were both post-merger.I didn't know there were country-specific e-mail addresses, have always used help@...
No, continent.As I said, it's weird that some people would have that impression. Once, when I needed to get in touch with them about an order shipped to a hotel address in France, I was surprised to find they even operate a dedicated, French-speaking phone hotline. As far as I'm aware, they don't do that for most other countries/languages.I should stress that I have never bugged them frivolously, i.e. just to try and see if I couldn't get back a few €€€. Every time I...
Not my experience. I live in Europe and e-mail them all the time about wrong sizes or minor defects in items, they always offer extra % off. I don't know why people keep portraying Yoox customer service as better in the US than elsewhere.Once I e-mailed them about a 1k SLP jacket that had developed some weird mold-like stains, about a year after I had bought it. Returned, full refund.Another time a pair of pants tore near a seam (a small, repairable rip) after only the...
I only have a couple of Missoni (knee-high) socks. Some of the best socks I've worn. Fabric is outstanding, and have held up nicely in spite of massive wear/washing. Have also handled other items, the quality always seemed excellent (which it ought to be, considering the prices).Not sure on the other hand whether I'm a big fan of the zig-zag pattern on larger items (knits etc.), although I realise that Missoni without the zig-zag is kinda like a vegetarian burger... I...
What's "dad jeans" to one person is the welcome - and long overdue - return of wide-leg pants to another. :-)Both Dries and Raf have been doing it for several seasons, it is high time the rest of the world latched onto it...
^Yeah, Vitkac, in Warsaw. They have their own online store as well: www.vitkac.com (I have ordered from them directly once or twice.)
I bought two umbrellas by Mario Talarico last year on a trip to Naples (1 long, 1 collapsible) and highly recommend them. They don't seem to be available online directly from the maker, but some online retailers (e.g. NMWA and KA Hanger Project) have them.There's also a store here with prices in sterling, maybe a good option with the pound in decline:http://www.exquisitetrimmings.com/products/Designer/Mario-Talarico/
I have seen situations like that as well, but I think sometimes stores won't discount prices as much as on their own sites because they want to (or maybe even have to, contractually?) participate in Farfetch's promo codes, and they don't want the Farfetch code to push the effective price to less than what they would get selling directly. E.g. there is still a Raf Simons coat from last spring on Farfetch for >1,000 € which is available on the retailer site for 800,...
I don't think he means that. That approach can work if you know the store name and want to know what they have.@OccultaVexillum I assume you mean identifying the seller for a given item you're looking at on Farfetch? I don't think there is a certain way of knowing this any more, but if you put the item in your shopping cart, in checkout they will at least tell you what country it ships from. It's still a needle in a haystack though.As somebody recently pointed out here or...
man what has become of this place I remember when I first signed up - mind you, this was the golden age of CM: vox, mafoofan, Manton, may their souls rest in peace - I felt like such a small-timer: I was having shirts made in Vietnam by nameless tailors for like 17 dollars a pop and counting my change, while reading reports of the CM big-timers flying back and forth between New York and Naples basically just to enjoy a good pizza and oh yeah maybe to have a couple of...
