I like me some nice, classic, almond rounded toe as much as the next fella, but I certainly wouldn't describe my simpson (10uk) as either square or pointy.But, you're right, different tastes are part of what makes the world go 'round....
Quick follow up - after a couple of weeks and 4 or 5 wears, they're breaking in nicely. Went the whole day today without having to take them off. There's still more resistance at the edge of the cap, but it's already progressed from "ugh" to "tolerable". So, in another month or so I expect them to be fine.One tip for a future reader: while sitting I would put my foot on my toes and flex a bit up and down. Not hard, but enough to give it a little stretch. I probably did...
This bad boy arrived today and, I gotta say, I'm very happy. The material is much nicer than I was hoping for, even at the retail price point (and I got mine at a great discount).I've handled some nicer examples of LP storm system fabrics for Zegna items but figured since this was for a real "outdoors" coat it would be substantially less nice. While it's certainly a grade tougher than their finer stuff it is worlds away better than any other wool "active" jacket I've...
...close enough:
It just occurred to me that your original complaint post was your first SF post and your join date was yesterday. Did you really register just to vent? And already you're calling longtime, solid, contributing members names?Where's that instaban button at?
@Chicago Guy 46 Ok, I give up. The good news is that the next time I'm shopping Mr. Porter and stock is low, I know there's one less buyer to contend with.
I may not know the details of your situation but I most certainly do know what I am talking about when I say, again politely, that your single experience - however bad - doesn't mean everyone should avoid using them, they are totally incompetent, etc.Yes, your experience is helpful and useful - especially if you followup with how they handle it once you give them an opportunity to do so - but recommending everyone avoid the entire company based on one experience is a bit...
Holding my nose, and jumping into the "don't feed the trolls" deep end of the pool...I sympathize with you not getting the service that you were promised and paying for but mistakes do happen; that doesn't mean the company is completely incompetent". I've personally had a couple of purchases from them that were perfect, clearly they can do things right.Why not take your situation and call them up and speak to a manager? I'll bet they'll make it right (or, as right as...
I was recently lamenting the fact that I didn't pick up an Outlier Supermoon vest when they were out a year or two back - in retrospect, I now see it as the perfect hiking "active" vest - so I went hunting for alternatives and found, well, virtually nothing. Like the Marmot LP jacket above, I wanted something kinda classic: primarily wool, non tech, non puffer. Something I could hike in cool to cold weather with and throw a jacket over if nec. Honestly, there aren't...
