as you are my shadow, that makes you my big gay baby.
You guys making fun of packaging are missing an important thing. Retailers charge a lot of money for clothes. Would you rather your $500 pair of jeans be nicely packed and sent in a great presentation vs being stuffed into a box only to be told you can't return it and tough shit?
I mean to each their own, but to me it makes a huge difference in my wanting to be a continuing client.
Also nice boxes can be reused to save stuff or re-gift.
I'm not disagreeing with you, but, I think the simplest way to look at it is like the difference between buying on B&S and a reputable source. If the retailer is shipping stuff out as-is stuffed into a box, will I buy again? No way. I'll go with the retailer that puts a little care and an actual policy into place. Then again, I'm pretty conservative about where my money is going.
Yeah of course that's an issue but I always save it in case I want to sell something or send it to B&S and give my client/customer a better experience. It's a small expense that goes a long way I think. Like when I go to barneys and they take a few minutes to wrap something up. They don't have to do it. It takes away my time. But you can't ever complain about it because they're putting more value into your buy.
