When is the Next Mr. Porter Sale? - Page 6

post #76 of 596
Got my gear. 1.5 days from NY to the midwest. I'm impressed. Probably returning the boots if anybody is interested. Wish I would have copped Howell in Medium (if anybody is getting one), it's quite boxy.

I have picked up some great stuff from them this season and everything was received the next day. A pair of jeans was too large and they promptly exchanged them.

In my opinion if people want to charge a markup for a MrPorter or any other item that they bought, be it 1 dollar or a hundred, they should take it to B&S. Something about this is not right.

On a similar note- I have already had a related conversation with a mod a few days ago. I wanted to start a thread where people could exchange/ sell items they bought during the sales, and that was at cost. Even so I was told that B&S was the best place for it. So charging a markup may not please the powers that be (and I am not one)....

Well does my $5 time charge really count as a markup? I need to write out or print out someones address, pack it into a box, walk to the post office and wait in line between 15-30 minutes. At that rate I'm losing quite a bit of money as my past jobs have paid $15-25 an hour. I can take down the offers section if that's not allowed.

For UPS, I stick it in the box and wait for them to pick it up.

Edit, moved to B&S unless a mod says otherwise.

With so many people wanting items from this sale I think this thread is great. It's not like people are trying to turn a profit off this stuff. If they are then, yeah of course B&S forum.

I think your thread will be good for non-returnable sales. For example Park and Bond final sale. People can sell/exchange it at cost if they want. But they don't need to do it.

I think people can charge a markup. To be honest, I would not sell any of the items I bought from porter if there's not a markup because I can return it anyway. If I sell it at my bought price, I need to spend extra time and energy to do it.

I posted a richard james jacket a few moment ago. I didn't say a price, but I said please cover my original shipping, my cost of item and a little more just for my time and energy. I also said the reason I sell it because: 1. Doesn't fit me 2. It's a nice jacket, if I return it, no one can buy it from porter because by the time my return processed, the sale will end, no one can order it even the customer service people and the item will be marked sold out.

I did receive PMs of questions(measurement, price, construction), I replied their messages of my measurement because the buyer don't trust the measurement on porter. He even provided a link of how to measure a jacket. I suddenly feel it's so silly because I'm not selling it for a huge gain, and why I need to spend extra time to do you the favor?

B&S started out just this way- why avoid it like it was diseased?

This thread should exist inside B&S

I concur about the amazing quality of the Mr. P experience. I purchased waaaaay too much stuff at sale time this year (including the PS Indy-style boots, which are great), and everything was shipped almost immediately. The best experience I had was with a return. The UPS guy dropped off the package; I tried it (the Aspesi lightweight padded jacket) on, realized it was too small, and called to set up a return; the UPS guy came back about 15 minutes later and picked up the package. I got the next size up just three days later.

It's a long-shot, but I missed out on the Margiela and Common Projects low-tops in size 12. If anybody got them and is having buyer's remorse, let me know!

I certainly don't claim to be correct, that was my opinion and I can understand why people would charge a markup. However if I did, I would take it to B&S,

In any case both our opinions are moot, as from my conversation the mods told me that it's B&S whether one is charging a markup or not. .

this thread is dedicated to sucking Mr. Porters cock. Its not a B&S thread. if you want to peddle your wares, take it to B&S. Dont advertise your stuff here, either. Especially if you are looking to make a profit. Like Andrew mentioned, sellers can just as easily return the item without any hassle.

Here is an idea: post links or descriptions of what you purchased (think Recent Purchases) and what you'll be returning. If you want to offer it up to members, request they pm you. and no "pm sent" shit. again, we are here to suck some Mr.Porter penor. Lets not turn this thread into a den of merchants and thieves

Received my order this morning and i'm not really into either of the items having tried them on. I don't think the free returns thing applies to me as i'm in Australia, so if anyone is interested in a Filson Camel Fisherman's parka in size 40 or a Gitman Vintage plain in size L (fits M). Let me know.
