Gilt shipped me the wrong product in a correctly labeled bag. Should I just return and reorder or attempt to gain clarity by phone first? I'm guessing the former.

There is no harm in contacting customer support first.

I remember when Gilt just started and had excellent deals on high end items (80-90% off brands people actually wanted), I ordered a really nice jacket from Borrelli Napoli (an MC-centric high end Italian brand that has recently diluted its exceptional quality). In the mail I received a woman's dress from some crappy brand. I haven't ordered anything from Gilt since then.

Yeah I'm thinking more in terms of how fruitless it would be to get someone on the phone to reassure me it won't happen again.

Edit: quoting and spoilering pics on the iphone is a mess.

Yeah that's my thought process as well. You can get an idea of what it would look like from the SSENSE pics (would just kop these but w/ code the ones from LN-CC come out to $380, way cheaper even considering dye cost)

That's the same sole as backlaces, can attest to its awesomeness. Instakop and dye!

I don't really believe this anymore. Maybe it is what people want you to believe to justify the higher prices. Theoretically, maybe it is true, but I attribute the skyhigh pricing to marketing hype and demand for the products. Also, I think the bigger and bigger that a brand gets, the more $$$ they need to produce larger quantities and to stay afloat.
Consider SEH Kelly- I recently handled their peacoat which was made from heritage wool, with the tweed hand woven on century-old looms by one guy, and only six made. The construction and quality is easily on par with and of the Cabourn outerwear that I own. And there is more care put into the details as compared to my Cameraman or Mallory. If Cabourn had made the peacoat, it would easily be twice the price, possibly 2.5-3x the price, if you compare it to some of the Scott's collection.

True. And his quality imo has gone south ie the clip jacket that used to be wool blended is now basically a cardi made from 100% jersey cotton.

I think we're on the tail end of people willing to pay the prices and shops willing to carry the goods. A few major shops have dropped NC this year (the only one I can remember off the top of my head is TBS).

Cabourn Cameraman came... not sure if keeping.

What don't you like about it? I think it's a great foul weather jacket (more for snow than rain).
post #69315 of 103580
It's the putty/army green linen one. Worried it will get tons of dirt on it. Fits/looks awesome though, IMO.
