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
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?
@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!).
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 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.
