He has always been a CF customer of both shirts and ties (hell, I believe he was one of the people that talked me into my first purchase with CF years ago). He bought into this thread a couple days back, and I asked him whether he was made right on his last purchase. He was. He has made a follow up purchase and received product within days...which is great for him.

So while I understand the skepticism given the history and Tommy's low posting activity, I can vouch for the guy. I think this thread needs evidence that CF is attempting to right its wrongs, and Tommy is the first to provide that.

Thank you, Matt.

Don't you mean Aldo Da'Gora

Much more flare than Steed but not as much as Rubinacci.

I never met Chuck F. but know many people that speak of him highly.

I did meet Ken Lay but barely knew him. Many that I know spoke of him very highly.

OK. I'll stop trolling this thread. I better stop before I'm perma-banned.

i received a note from Jill (followed by USPS confirmation) that the ties i selected as compensation for the order I made awhile ago is on the way. i'll report on what i get, but at the moment it appears they are trying to make good. no additional money has changed hands.

we'll see what happens.

I received three ties today that were a replacment for one I paid for a few years ago. This is a good start to trying to prove they could be trusted again; at least in my book.

Now if they get some new stock I might be interested in order another tie to two from them.

Long long ago, I bought a tie from them when they first started. It has been a good tie. Then came the years of seeing them get ripped for ripping everyone off, but the product it self I was happy enough with.

I also received three ties to make good on an order that they never delivered. I'd rather have my original order but I am content. Would I order from them again? Yes, if they had a tie that I really like and it was in stock. They have to earn more trust back before I would place an order that would take a long time - specifically longer than I could have my credit card company perform a charge back.

Folks,

I use Win 7 and have for about a year. It (or google chrome) has a security feature that warns on websites that have malware.

Due to this thread I went to the carlofranco.com website and got the big red warning that proceeding would lead me to a site that distributes maliscious malware if you proceed.

I only have gotten this warning once before and I was following an interesting story (think Tiger Woods and his women) and went to a site that generated the warning. Later googling confirmed that many that had visited said site got viri.

I have no dog in this hunt. I have 2 CFs purchased several years ago that I received without problem. I think it was the Ask Andy tie (remember the 2 blues) and the SF model (remember cream with a red and grey stripe.

Proceed at your own risk.

One of the funny things about all the CF drama (both this time around and a couple of years ago), is that despite their customer service problems for everyone else, they mistakenly sent me TWO of the "official" StyleForum tie after I ordered one right before they went under.

So I guess my experience was a rare success story.

Can someone make a name generator that produces Italian sounding names from our own?
