Yes, but I have also observed the opposite (sadly): an identical coat as one they had been discounting from a much lower starting price before has just come in again at >500 euros. I vaguely remember the starting price previously had been something between 300 and 400.
The starting price for many items appears to be somewhere between 60 and 70 per cent of its original RRP. Don't know if that used to be different? I began buying from them sometime in 2012. There isn't often a chance to find out a given item's original RRP as by the time things come up on Yoox, they have long since disappeared from stores and other sites, but every once in a while there is an item which I remember from the original collection so know its original price or...
No doubt, so would I. Have you checked though if any of the items in your dreambox are included in this warehouse sale? Some of mine are. Problem is, and this has been my point all along, the stuff in the warehouse sale is immune to discount codes. If the items in question retain that quality after the end of the warehouse sale and revert back to their previous price, it might be worth considering getting them now. In fact, a couple I've ordered (one in particular was 80...
I guess come Tuesday/Wednesday, after the "warehouse sale" will have ended, we will know a little bit more. I am curious to see if some of the items I've been watching will a) revert back to their pre-warehouse-sale prices and b) lose their discount-code-immunity.
Interesting but I believe that must be a difference in their US vs EU policy. I usually order to addresses in Belgium and Germany (sometimes to hotel addresses in France also) and every item you order to addresses in these countries can be returned. Maybe it's to do with EU legislation. I do know from items which have been in my dreambox for a long time that the prices of sample sale items are not necessarily the theoretical minimum price as determined by their algorithm,...
So what exactly is the story with the sample sale? I notice that various items I had been watching have been moved into the sample sale for the current warehouse clearance promotion. (They no longer show up in the regular search results, only if you click on the warehouse clearance banner first and then filter for designer/catgory etc.) Do they ever move items back from the sample sale to the regular product group when a promotion is over? Reason I'm asking is that...
Not only still working (till Tuesday 10 a.m.) but now giving 30(!) per cent off if you make your order with the Yoox app on a mobile device.The app seems to deserve its bad rep - error messages, won't open dreambox, very slow page loading etc. Pretty unnerving, but I ordered stuff worth ~750 euros, so the extra discount was worth the hassle. In the end, I logged into my account on my computer, put the items into the shopping bag there, then re-logged in on my Android phone...
while on the subject of shearling collars:
^That Isaia coat doesn't ship to Europe. Don't know what site you are using, but if you're in Europe, that's why it doesn't show up in the search results.
I don't agree with that; I don't think "a couple of years useful life" is fair at all - not even for decent RTW, still less a bespoke product.When I read the first sentence ("I was 24 or 25...") I thought it was going to continue "...and now I'm 36/42/whatever and I still wear them all/none have fallen apart."4-5 years (seasons!, more strictly speaking) seems like the average use most people get out of run-of-the-mill RTW. I'm sure most people who spend 4-digit...
