Hi guys, I just ordered this from Yoox recently and despite some intense back and forth between they and I, it has finally arrived. Unfortunately, it is FAR too large on me, and exceptionally short. Please note, you should be 6'1" or below to wear this, or have a very short torso. The belt is right around the top of my belly button, which obviously won't fly This is Marc Jacobs Mainline, made in Italy. 84% Virgin Wool, 13% PA, 3% Elastane, single vent in the...
Truthfully, I wouldn't be surprised. I work at BR and in the employee magazine, I went through with a pen and circled every pant that fit incorrectly....in a 4 page spread, I had 10 circles.
I love paisley, but it all depends on the person wearing it. If the person is a quiet, kind of reserved person, the paisley looks incredibly out of place. I've worn bold paisley with a suit before and received many, many compliments. However, I'm also tall, fairly skinny, and have a very bold personality, so it hardly looked out of place.
Whenever I cashier, I always ask if anyone offered them help rather than gave them help. More often than not, someone tries and offers but I don't want/need it; the employees should not be penalized for me being independent.
As others have said on here, Boyd's is a bit of a mixed bag. You're going to get much better prices than most comparable places, especially in Philly. The salesmen work on commission, which makes them incredibly aggressive. I have received the snarky looks before when wearing casual clothing....I was coming home from class, am I really going to wear more than jeans and a button down? I had one salesman give me a bit of a bs runaround, and when I called him on the...

North Philadelphia and to a lesser extend, West Philadelphia is where the sales associate will likely pull out his glock and respond with his version of what's up motherfucker?
Everything has been covered in this thread already. It is a fashion suit with questionable construction and an esoteric silhouette. For $800, you can do better.
There is also a way to follow up with a customer who says he or she is just browsing without being a complete pain in the ass. I always give them a while to look around for themselves and after a bit, I will always follow up with "is everything still going well?" When I shop, I expect to be followed up with but in a very simple and succinct way to let me know that the sales associate is still present but not trying to do anything more than assist me if necessary. ...
As a college student, sales associate at a retail establishment, and a complete asshole, I have had no problem telling off the overly smug and contentious people like you. There are going to be sales associates who are overly pushy, and that is when you have to establish boundaries; conversely, you will have sales associates who completely ignore you. It balances out. As a personal story.....it was gorgeous here the other day, so I went into a number of stores. I...
