The Buff Check just came for my wife today...can't wait to see it on, and then off, her.
Green 10oz Rivets and Speckled Chambray today:
I believe in the past Mike has said that they allocate some stock to be in store and some to be put online. The reason the last batch sold out so quickly was because they had taken reservations, which they will no longer be doing for this very reason. So you may have in fact purchased the last french blue in a 34 7oz, but that doesnt mean that they havent reserved 'x' amount to be placed online.
with these past shipments selling out so quickly, it would be bad business to not divide up the shipments between brick & mortar and online space. it really is two separate business models.a proprietor wouldnt want to alienate the people who dont live in their home city.
having said all that, i could be wrong, and you may have in fact gotten the last laugh.
