I agree.. Most stuff on yoox is way overpriced ... Even with the product codes, the only good time to buy items is during the end of the season sales.. And if u are lucky u can find a handful of gems for a good deal. Their customer service is very robotic and seems like I speak with the same ladies every time. I still think yoox is the best site but it has gone downhill a bit .. I will say I have made around 40 orders and never received a damaged item ..most of the problems I have are inaccurate sizing

The inaccurate sizing and final sale terms on some items are exactly why I'm hesitating on making a purchase. Does Italian sizing run true to size? ITA 50 = US 40 or maybe 42?

from what ive learned I only buy final sale items from brands which i know how their sizes run, and on clothes that are heavily discounted. I will never take a big risk on a final sale item unless I absolutely love it. 

 

Italian sizes in my experience run true or slightly smaller then US sizes, ive never purchased an italian size that ran large,,..it differs with every brand though

Interesting how two people can shop at the asme website and have completely different experiences.

You never purchased Loro Piana, Caruso, Kiton, Partenopea, Zegna, Brioni, Canali, Cucinelli, Pal Zilery etc etc etc. All premium Italian brands will run one size larger.

Sorry, what? Are you saying if I wear a 38/ 48 in Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren that I would take a 36/ 46 in the above brands?

Too much of a generalization. Will ultimately come down to suit model and store it was made for. Caruso from yoox a few years ago switched to drop 8 - those run small if anything. I've had Belvest all over the map, etc etc. Point is, even when you think you know, you may be in for a surprise when that Yoox box shows up at your door.

@Froosh I'm pretty sure you won't be stuck with any item that has quality issues. Without this comfort no one would probably buy from the clearance section. Just take a photo and explain the issues. If it's legitimate they'll either let you return it or offer you a discount. 


Yes, they are helpful if you have flawed items. Hopefully, you will not receive too many damaged items b/c I think that is what sets you up to put under review to be banned: trying to return too many final sale items.

Yes, this. I once purchased two Cantarellis, of very different models. In one I took my normal size, in the other I had to return it and size down by TWO sizes. Admittedly, that was more extreme than anything else I've experienced, but you really have to know your models (and Yoox does NOT make it easy to determine what you're actually getting!).

We should counter their new strategy. Nobody of us should buy any items that are new and excluded from any promotion. Only when they become free for promotion we should consider buying.

They think we wont wait for promotions or markdowns if we really want a product badly enough so their new stuff is often excluded from promo codes. So better stuff will not become any cheaper this leads to products being highly priced long and marked down as late as possible.

So even if u want something really bad i suggest dont buy it if its marked new and excluded from codes, will be better for all of us

Sorry, I disagree with both the assumption that Yoox should include "new" items in promotions and a boycott. Obviously we want better deals but Yoox doesn't owe us any promise of promotions. There's no valid point for a boycott. I think while we benefit from the lower price on Yoox we should be reasonable with our expectations and also allow Yoox to profit so that it can continue to serve us better in the long term. It's rather greedy and short sighted to decide on penalizing Yoox because it didn't offer promotions sooner.

I think u misunderstood the concept of economics. Of course they dont owe us anything, but they want our money as much as possible, if its worth it or not! There are also items that are higher priced than in usual stores so dont tell me to be thankful. The times of really good bargains are apparently over long time especially since they merged with porter.
I started buying in other stores, new online stores are popping up more and more the competitions increases, so there are far more possibilities than yoox for really good bargains compared to some years ago.
Just sayin people should not support their strategy as a principle, cause its our money, and it would help all of us if we dont buy anything until its free for promotion at least. This should be the point were competition between customers should start not earlier.. Its just clothes nothing we dont already have enough to wait a little bit longer

I see your point, but to be fair let's just recognize that most items on Yoox are discounted from what they would have been originally priced. Yes, as of late some items are popping up close to or above MSRP (depending on your country), but the overwhelming amount of stuff is often deeply or reasonably discounted. That is what robxznyc is suggesting.

 

We will have to find a happy medium with Yoox. Often times, people shopping on Yoox are upset that the items they want do not hang around until the rock bottom pricing kicks in. Well, not everything will stay around; more and more people are shopping on Yoox.  So while Jeremy wants that Caruso blazer at $350, Scott snapped the last one up at $475. Scott still wins because it would have cost him upwards of $2000 at retail.

 

Rob also makes a point that Yoox needs to make a good profit. It's a relatively new company after its merger with Porter (Porter having hardly ever made a profit) and for the business to thrive then they of course will want to make more money. 

 

New full-price online stores are coming to market, but none of them compete with Yoox (the discount site) in terms of breadth, price and diversity. I would much rather pay a little bit more and keep Yoox in the black as opposed to Yoox always underpricing and becoming insolvent. As far of off-price goes, the competition is in the doldrums because there of less inventory to go around; go look at Gilt and the paltry selections: Amazon just closed MyHabit: most department store outlets sell clothes that were specifically made for the outlet. For off-price, Yoox was and still is your best bet on Earth.
