new Yoox codes and sales - post them here - Page 228

post #3406 of 3594
Take the survey they sent this morning and you get a 15% code to stack on top of these deals.

Does anyone else have a problem of being unable to follow any links in Yoox emails? Mine always go to a 404 page. I emailed their support but hadn't heard anything.

Just curious as to what outerwear brands are good on Yoox. I have been lucky with knits, pants, and occasionally SC and suits on Yoox. However the few times i ventured out into outerwear  it has been a complete miss. Seems that the sizes were not TTS on the brands (Piombo, Sealup) that I picked up.

I peeked in my Dream Box (I hadn't looked in a while) and was surprised to see a big ticket fall item had already been knocked down about 45% in my abensence; with the additional 15% off it was a no-brainer. Even though, here in Florida, I need another piece of outerwear like I need a hole in the head...

Does the survey code work with Clearance items?

If you meant something else then it's not clear. MP Massimo Piombo is a widely coveted label - especially during its Kiton era. Sealup is another great brand that mostly makes items under contract for other labels such as Burberry etc.

I assure that both companies make great outerwear. You have to be willing to accept that sizing may vary from what's normal for you. Even a brand you already know might have a difference in sizing because sometimes sizing is tailored for the local market of distribution

Embrace the hunt and exercise the return policy if it doesn't work.

The piece I finally snagged is a wool+down bomber from Moorer who's handful of things I've come across elsewhere are nothing but top notch pieces. I'd also point you at Isaia, Esemplare, Cucinelli and Aspesi. I have no hands-on experience with Brioni but all my indications are that they make mostly fantastic bits. Zegna mainline has things that range from great to middling (pass on Z-Zegna), Corneliani too (and pass on Corneliani ID). My 02.

Good list, but Corneliani ID is pretty solid in my opinion (Basically Corneliani's version of Eidos imo).

I certainly can't speak for their whole line but I've handled a few nice Corneliani ID pieces.

I think free shipping offers will be around long after the EU has disintegrated. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The Eidos comparison is particularly interesting. My "writing off" ID was from a few years ago when I had a lot of exposure to the range and felt, at the time, it was a diffusion like line. Maybe my perception was wrong and/or it's evolved since. I'll revisit it going forward.

One other note in their favor, I just realized that a flat out fantastic light wool unlined bomber that I own is actually an ID piece. I had confused myself into thinking it was mainline and, after double checking, it is not. That jacket is so well done as almost to be worth recommending the line on it's own (or at least the time period it came from - '14, '15?).

ps - one other brand I should have mentioned in my previous list was Borrelli. I've only had first hand experience with a half dozen pieces but none of them was less than stellar.

Again, this whole aside discussion while not code or sales related, is intended for Yoox outerwear hunting. Good luck out there!

Thank you very much. Really appreciate it, especially coming from someone as distinguished on the forum as you. I will check out Moorer.  Obviously i have seen Isaia and Cuccienelli on Yoox, but found it rarely available in my size once the real price drops happen. I have seen some nice Esemplare pieces, similar to the A-1 blouson carried by NMWA. I have a mixed feeling on Aspesi though, first there are virtually a zillion cuts, second, although the materials they use are top notch, the quality of construction does not merit their price and the usually is very trim in upper sleeves. I love Corneliani, have several suits and some of their casual shirts, sweaters, pants. I find ID quality is on-par with mainline. Trend is super slim and CC is mostly not interesting.

Agree with this assessment. However some of the Cornelliani Trend pieces (especially unlined sc) remind me of Eidos Tenero, maybe not exactly in cut, but in quality of materials and design.

Thank you for your comment, but I wasn't hoping to get a lecture. What I meant as "good' is something that is worth looking into buying based on SF wisdom. True to size is pretty universally understood on SF. If I am EU 52 in Canali, Cornelliani and Zegna suits, then I should be able to just buy an overcoat in Eu52 and it "should" fit over the suit/sportcoat without being too big or too tight. And EU52 is roughlycut for a person 22 inches in the chest and 18-18.5 inches the shoulders ov avg height of 5'8-5'11. If I am size EU 54, than about 23 in chest and you tackle one inche in the shoulders to about 19 in.  Isn't that what you understand?

 

I am familiar with Piombo and the piece that I bought was mainline - prior to him launching MP Massimo Piombo .It is just has Piombo on the label. Great materials and very traditional cut. In my experience Piombo was at least 1 size too big. I also tried Aquascutum trench from Yoox, prior to ordering I saw one in the local store, tried in my size it was perfect, ordered the same size from Yoox (on the pictures it looked like very similar item/cut/also made in UK) What arrived is a military parachute - about 2 sizes too big and made out of heavy rubberized cotton, not what Yoox had in their description ( that is probably the biggest beef i have with them is not including at least some basic measurements such as chest).

 

I have tied several Sealup coats, my normal size was too big (with extra long sleeves), size down was too tight. I ended up keeping the larger size and paying the tailor almost 80% of the purchase price to bring it in (not exactly what I would call a win situation)

 

I get it that different brands have different cuts and that they may vary for the distribution countries, but Yoox is effectively a liquidator for many stores from various countries, so without additional details in description it is very often crap shoot. I have embraced the hunt several years ago, however being based in Canada we get slapped additional 30% on top of the Yoox price (which Yoox does not automatically refund - you have too call each time and they have to recalculate the portion into your refund). Additionally, the shipping to Canada is never free and is at least $15 and goes up with the order size and since there is not Moneyoox in Canada the returns are not free either,  and since I often buy on their final sale sometimes it's not even an option, so it would be nice to not have to return practically every second item I buy.

You are getting whipped worse than GB and you cannot even Brexit .satisfied.gif

This is off-topic, but we are better than GB. No need for Brexit here. We just signed the CETA agreement just need to ratify it.

Canada is the envy on the western world. Stable economy and political system and a very handsome prime minister.
