Please, don't be ironic guys. I don't want to be scammed by a shop. They ship to you guys, but why not to me?
Alright, so I was screwing with you before, but I feel kinda bad now so I'll stop. Let me break it down for you.
You ordered from Acrimony like three days ago, and they haven't contacted you yet. Acrimony is a small shop with a small staff, so this doesn't surprise me at all--you're not talking about some big name store like Barney's here. Yeah, it sucks that they didn't follow their online policy of shipping within a day, but that's how it often goes. Countless members have ordered from Acrimony before with no problem, so the likelihood that they'll decide to throw all that out the window and scam some random dude seems very slim. They're busy right now with sales season, so the fact that they missed an e-mail or two is not surprising at all--maybe they're waiting until they've shipped your pants before they reply to your e-mail. Haven't you ever let an e-mail slide by before remembering to reply to it?
I've ordered from Acrimony a couple of times, and yes, they've been slightly slow with shipping. I wasn't kidding when I said they took a week to ship a pair of pants once. It's a little annoying, but so what? In the end, if I regret buying a pair of pants because it comes a week later than I wanted it to, I probably shouldn't have been buying the in the first place.
Do you realize how much business a credible shop like Acrominy would lose if they really scammed anyone? Saving themselves a petty hundred bucks is not worth that risk, so why the fuck would they want to scam you? Learn to be patient.
Just got in my order from Roden Gray (fast shipping by the way). The raw straight jeans are great, if I wasn't already a few months into breaking in my APCs these would be getting my full time attention. I sized down 1 from my normal size. They were a little tight at first in the waist, but I have no doubt they will stretch enough to be comfortable. You may be able to get away with sizing down 2, I haven't had these long enough to comment on them once fully stretched. The navajo print shorts run big in the waist for sure, size down (wish I did ). Fabric is a little whack, but it's really lightweight and soft which will be nice for these 100+ days. Box fresh size 32 measures 17.5" aligned waist Maybe I can shrink them a little. Edited by VLSI - 6/23/12 at 11:03am
People were saying pants this year are running TTS, but I could've definitely sized down 1 on my Westpoint chinos and I went with a 29 on my slubs and they fit pretty good--like a 30.5, I'd say. Slub pants are gonna go back though, definitely don't need a third pair of blue pants. Hit me up if you want it before I return it, would let em go for like $115.
