post #87676 of 98862

Looks like another day of phone tag with a Neiman store. Did people forget how to sell clothes without the internet?

post #87677 of 98862
- want an item on Oki-Ni; wait for Black Friday
- Black Friday discount doesn't apply to desired item; wait for Cyber Monday
- Cyber Monday discount doesn't apply to desired item; wait indefinitely
- day after Cyber Monday, new code comes out "apples to all fw13 merchandise"
- new code doesn't work on desired item
- email Oki-Ni about it, they say code should apply and they've fixed it
- code works on item, can't checkout because imaginary MasterCard special password is required
- call MasterCard, set up password I was never prompted to create previously
- re-order from Oki-Ni, apply code successfully, use MasterCard successfully; confirmation page and email receipt show wrong total (code that was applied to cart total did not "stick")
- now Gmail is giving me a "temporary server error" so I can't sign in or email Oki-Ni

sometimes I just hate the whole internet

UPDATE: Gmail service resumed, order placed successfully with discount, and for the record, the people of Oki-Ni (specifically Lily in customer service) were extremely helpful.

I empathize. :happy:

Only took three phone calls today. Second time I called they cut off the connection during the department transfer.

 

My account shows they refunded me the charge yesterday, so this time I requested (demanded) I stay on the phone with her while she charged my card. She was reluctant to even do so questioning whether I had enough funds to do so. :rolleyes: Nice to get blamed for their incompetence. I even springed for 2 day shipping because their ghetto customer service, needless to say, is worrying me.

 

Perhaps I should have my bank issue me a new card/number in anticipation of my cc info getting misplaced (stolen) at/from this Neiman store. :happy: :cry:

i was thinking about clothing last night, as i do most nights, and it dawned on me, if not for my work situation, and my needs to dress a certain way within my orthodox jewish community, i would probably be way more SWD than MC. i would guess a 70/30 split. and i dont mean chinos and sweater SWD, i mean legit full on SWD.

Time to change careers :)

Dang dude. That's an interesting revelation, but there's would dress that way vs desperately desire to. Hopefully it's not the latter because it sucks when life's necessities conflict with one's true desires especially in terms of expressing oneself.

You'd do great in full on sw&d and it'd be fascinating which flavor of style in that vein you gravitate towards. Your eye for matching detail/styling assuredly seems quite honed.

Cool interview with David Vandewal, who works with people from Thakoon to the Gap. Worth checking out: http://www.thefashionlaw.com/interview-series-david-vandewal/

I don't.

stitches.. I don't think you need to throw out the baby with the bathwater. just starting mixing in some new things into your trad/classic stuff. blur the lines. no need to exactly follow prescribed formats -- unless your job or social group really demand it.

thanks for the replies guys, and thanks for the compliment, abraxis. smile.gif

dont get me wrong, i still love my MC gear, and i love being able to dress that way. i have no desperate desire to rid myself of that, nor do i regret in any way dressing that way. i love it.

i just mean that in a different set of circumstances, i would be more free to add another layer of dress that i think i would enjoy a lot. SWD feels more loose and free to me, and seems to allow a broader spectrum of dress, which i like a lot, and it adds a range of fun styles that really appeal to me.

i am in the process of doing what parker said, adding in some new pieces that are more SWD, from time to time, while trying to keep within the confines of what i can do, and what i feel comfortable doing, in the circumstances that are my life.

and of course, thank you to you all for all the help along the way.
