Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 132
Today we have the Orkney 5 eye boot in Dark Oak on the 202, one of my favorite MTO's from Tom at Leather Soul. That loose extra leather on the instep you see is where I had my bunion areas point stretched as these are marked D's. Now I get EG's in E or evn F to accomodate that part of my feet.
Who said he isn't reasonable? The issue here is sloppiness that caused this whole unpleasant mess. Why on earth would you write Last 202 on your webpage when you have a shoebox in front of you that says Last 82? Wait, let me guess, it's because "mistakes do happen", right? But when you are selling shoes for over 1000USD to foreign countries you should know that what might be a minor problem to a resident of New York can be magnified many times over when the recipient is in Asia.
Maybe Leffot should stick to walk-in customers if they don't know that selling on the internet means putting out accurate information on their products.
My definition of good customer service is not letting bad things happen to begin with. Not taking my money on the pretext of wrongly marked products and then trying to be helpful.
Give it a rest.
No Joe, the point is that you never bother to legitimately respond to any of the observations anyone here makes about your repeated vitriol whilst spewing more and, obviously, people are growing tired of it.
You don't like EG? Fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Yet, you didn't even order the shoes that form the "basis" of your posts here. All we have is your "word" about someone you know having ordered and received them. Someone with far more credibility here then, sure, we're inclined to listen. However, you, out of nowhere, go out of your way to start posting in an appreciation thread about how "shit" EG and other english brands are based upon an alleged MTO received by someone else, whilst contemporaneously posting in other threads here about desiring to order some of the very english brands you claim are "overrated." How is anyone here supposed to believe that the shoe you complain about isn't a factory second picked up at the EG seconds sale and sent to you?
Ultimately, nothing about your posts adds up and that tends to disincentivize regarding your opinions. Perhaps you and Fiddler can open your own shop.
if someone bought 10 pairs of EG and they were all perfect, and posts about it on the internet, then why is that experience being dismissed?
it's also rich that suddenly Fiddler's complaint seems to be dragged into this. his problem is with Leffot, not with EG
^^This is correct, I have no complaint with EG so far. This was my first pair of EG shoes and I was looking forward to them eagerly. What arrived was a disappointment, caused entirely (and acknowledged by) by Leffot.
I think there are a lot of people on this thread who are either in the fashion retailing business or regular customers of Leffot, so I understand you defending them to the end. My point has always been that if you aspire to be a top-end retailer, charging top dollar markups, then there is no room for mistakes. Period.
Saying you're sorry and making me trudge to the post office to make a return is BS. And Leffot still has not answered my question of who will bear the duties when the shoes enter the US and are held by customs there. Since they have a policy of declaring full value on merchandise, I have to do the same otherwise who will be responsible if the goods are impounded?
Let me say again that Leffot has responded by saying that they will refund the entire amount of my purchase + shipping costs + duties I paid in my country. But it is still a hassle for me to go to the post office and waste 2 hours there. I would have been more agreeable if they had sent DHL to pick up the shoes from my place at their expense, since I had NO part to play in this mess. But that did not happen.
Yet you guys are going on about 'hate' and 'vitriol' like I have some sort of agenda against Leffot. In fact I was interested in some more of their models when the time was right.
I am currently in the process of finding a new place to live and move to and am up against the clock....so I just don't have the time to devote in order to rectify someone else's mistakes.
So, why don't YOU give it a rest instead?
This is typical of every single one of your responses - you completely ignore what other people write and stick to your own ignorant vitriol. Not to mention that your posts, including across threads, are completely contradictory. You "like" EG but call them "junk" in the same post? G&G is overrated but you whinge that the Bespoke owner won't message you back to facilitate your G&G order? As far as I'm concerned, you posted photos of seconds. Again, this thread is for those of us who appreciate EG - if you don't that's fine, but take your bullshit elsewhere because I don't think many of us are buying it.
Hey, just writing to let everyone, including Leffot fans, miserable and un-miserable fucks, know that since my previous post, I have taken steps to bring the situation with Leffot to closure, so you won't need to put up with any more miserableness, spite, vitriol, bigotry, unpleasantness, whining, unreasonable demands etc etc etc.
If you feel you were fucked by EG or Leffot, state what happened, let nature take it course and then report back with the outcome. This way you seem less vindictive, and more informative-something I learned.
This is my point.
