It's sounding more and more unique, sad to say.

But framing the email, that's not a bad idea :slayer:

If only he had a designated Affiliate Thread where he could quickly and easily respond to such things.

If only he logged into it in the past 18 months... puzzled.gif

Based on Fok's AMA replies regarding the OSB thread, Jamison must still be paying for this affiliate thread, no?

I've had excellent products shipped from him, thank you.  And they've been done so in very timely fashion.  I've had no regrets.

We could if he responded to emails. Or picked up packages. Or posted on forums. Or gave me a phone number I could call. I mean, I would LOVE to hear his side of the story. I've been waiting months to hear it!

it would be good of him to post here.

It would be nice if something were done. I'm saying this as someone who loves HY's products and will continue to order from Jamison. It kind of saddens me to see him dragging his own name through the mud (perhaps I exaggerate, but still).

 

Anyway, I am absolutely down for trying to figure out a way to somehow ask why he doesn't communicate.

 

On a related note, if we do want to figure this out:

I know @mimo and I are of a similar mind when it comes to HY (I think).

Only used him once.  Comms were a problem, though when he did get in touch he couldn't have been more helpful.  And the jacket's nice.  I'd order from him again, but not entirely without trepidation.  And it does seem to me the situation is getting worse rather than better, from comments above.

 

Maybe time for a friendly Fok intervention, while the topic of AV standards is hot...

post #4481 of 4612

Ah, I thought you had ordered some pants from him as well. Regardless, it would be nice if someone could somehow get in contact with Jamison and not need to get Fok involved, but that thread is there for, among other things, registering complaints against vendors, and Fok will be watching it (as far as I know, he generally keeps out of AV threads).

 

In terms of products, Yount is probably my favorite vendor on the forum. But I really would like to see this addressed (perhaps for that reason, come to think of it)

+1

I have 8 pair of HY pants and various other items. His sport coats are great for the price point. He has some offerings that get a lot of praise on other threads like tubular belts. I don't think many people realize how unique these belts are or even that he carries them due to lack of communication.

I have never had a problem with returns or refunds, so I will continue to order from him. I do understand others' frustration.

Side note: unfortunately the new pant sizes don't work for me, so I am trying other vendors/makers.

I ordered two pairs of pants in December, returned one (kept the other), and while there was maybe a week or two delay, it was nothing outrageous—not long enough that would cause any undue interest charges on my credit card.

Anyhow, looking at buying another 2-3 pairs from him once I can save the money—I hope he resolves everyone's problems soon!

It honestly sounds like an understaffing problem, though I'd have thought he'd get a handle on this sooner.

I ordered a pair of the 8-wale corduroys a couple of months ago and they arrived promptly with a hand-written thank you card.

Unfortunately, several of the bar tacks ripped out almost as promptly. Ah well, they're still rather nice trousers…
