im in class discussing the first amendment, which reminded me of this case...
In May 2008 Romani camps in Naples were attacked and set on fire by local residents. In July 2008, a high court in Italy overthrew the conviction of defendants who had publicly demanded the expulsion of Romanis from Verona in 2001 and reportedly ruled that "it is acceptable to discriminate against Roma on the grounds that they are thieves." One of those freed was Flavio Tosi, Verona's mayor and an official of the anti-immigrant Lega Nord. The decision came during a "nationwide clampdown" on Romanis by Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. The previous week, Berlusconi's interior minister Roberto Maroni declared that all Romanis in Italy, including children, would be fingerprinted.
my rant wasn't about how the fit looked good or bad, it was about how dismissing nikes as a category of shoes is stupid (which mikey did, because they were 'comfortable'). the reason (in my eyes) inverallen and sweatpants works together is because inverallen is a big spongey comfy knit that is actually pretty shapeless. it's kind of like a big oversized wool blanket. it's really easy to wear it with faded jeans and an oxford, where's the fun in that?
I'm not getting into a drawn-out debate with you because you seem to think you're absolutely correct, but your original response was surprisingly immature. And the way you've represented mikey's comment is both uncharitable and inaccurate.
FWIW they are lying about the letterhead. either that or you spoke to the lowest level floor assistant who didnt bother asking the manager where its kept.
either way, sounds right for maisons' ethos.
did reedo hear back from maison for his sneakers that ripped after minimal use?
paypal could have an easy way to handle fake claims. just mail it in to them, they have their specialists look at the item in consultation with stores and manufacturers. most "fakes" are fakes of luxury items, its a simple step for paypal to authenticate with the luxury brand itself. itll take 4-6 weeks to resolve a claim but claims should be a hassle for buyer and seller, so that its used only as a last resort and not abused.
if its indeed a fake, paypal will refund you fully and destroy the item. fakes should be removed from circulation. seller is blacklisted and paypal account suspended.
if its legit, paypal retuns to you at your expense deducted from your account, case closed.
Eh, it was taking forever to actually find someone willing to help, so I just decided to keep wearing them, albeit in dry weather only
