I emailed him a couple of weeks back with my confirmation # and order information and told him I would call my CC the next day to cancel. He replied back within a few hours asking if I wanted the shoes or if I wanted to cancel. I told him I'd prefer to just cancel at this point and he refunded my CC within like 2 business days.
If you just send him an email without your order information he may have trouble looking you up in the system.
Guys, his shop is built to move 25 pairs max per week. He got 1000+ orders in one week. Combine that with him not physically having the shoes in hand and having to pick them up from Lobb, recipe for the current situation. He should have just told every - 2 month fulfillment period.
I gave Nick every benefit of the doubt because I had positive experiences in the past. And even though it wasnt always perfect, I stuck through it. But having witnessed some of the scams - by once trusted sellers- on this forum, its evident that there comes a time when the risk and worry becomes too much. And 7 weeks after purchase and 3 weeks after last response is when i reached that breaking point.
P.S. These other SF scams had fan boys too who attempted to assuage the fears of fellow members and even criticized members for doubting the seller, all while the seller went silent
I have never ordered from Bespoke, however I question their business model. I have participated in numerous sales from online retailers (Leffot, Leatherfoot, Skoak...) who offer their products for sale, and when they have no more to sell, list the item as "sold out". Here it seems Bespoke continued to take orders for shoes they did not have in stock. I do not know the wisdom of this business practice. It almost seems to border on fraud, where they are accepting payment for an item they do not have. I can offer to sell you a Patek Sky/Moon Tourbillon, accept your money, then try to find one to actually sell to you. In some places that could get you arrested. Seems like a bad business model to me.
