I've ended up ordering it from MP UK as at least I will have the return option, cost a little more though.

This. If Poox try this shit in the EU they will know about it.

Guys in the UK you can pay Mr porter via paypal. If you need to send something back with a dodgy retailer (e.g. selfridges) then you can just raise a not as described case complaining about the colour. Paypal will side with you 99.9% of the time and you even get your return postage paid too.

 

This an option for US based?

Final sale bothers me a lot less when a store is good about providing detailed measurements.  Otherwise it'll probably scare me away, especially if it's a brand I haven't tried before.  Then again, sometimes the deal is good enough that I'll take the risk.

I've never understood people who get this worked up over shoes. 

 

I get it, you pay hundreds of dollars for a premium product so you expect perfection. 

 

But you wear them once for 10 minutes and boom, you've got some scuffs. 

 

If you're going to be wearing these for years to come, is it worth getting worked-up over how they look in the first 10 minutes? 

 

Most of my Aldens were purchased as seconds though, so who am I to judge.

My order placed last night has a "Create return/exchange" button, so it seems that you can return stuff purchased before they put in final sale. As for Amex, you can put in a returns claim even if it is final sale (I've done it once). They usually let you keep the item too if it's under $300 from what I read.

Too generous IMO. I'm sure there's people who take advantage of that.

I'm going to call Mr Porter and tell them that if they sell me that Bremont Kingsman watch at 70% off I'll agree to final sale.  :embar:

Yea, but I think there are more likely to make you ship it back if you keep taking advantage of it. I think 1-2 claims per year is pretty minor for them. And plus they don't wanna be stuck with paying for shipping for something like a lawn mower and disposing of it.

Out of 4 items I've tried to purchase, I was only quick enough to buy 1. :facepalm:

I'm sorry if I was unclear. The person in question ordered two pairs of shoes in two instances and tried them on at home before returning them. He then requested shoes that had never been tried on (verbatim). That's a mind-boggling succession of events to me. Anyhow, no big deal but that was quite funny to me.

That's true. When the iPhone 6 came out I bought a Mulberry sleeve for it because I saw them in store and they were relatively cheap. I bought it thinking that if the phone was inside a sleeve it would keep me away from texting and driving.  One night, my cat was sick and accidentally vomited on top of it. AMEX covered it under their accident policy. :worship:

Yep, I've used AmEx's return protection w/o a hitch. Never had to send anything back to them. A couple times w/ "final-sale" items and a couple times I forgot to return within the stores' return window (AmEx gives you a rather generous 90 days). Is capped at $1000 a year (per account tho, so if you have multiple AmEx cards, you can double, triple, etc. dip).

 

Did it w/ Citi once--they also refunded no problem but did make me send the stuff in to them. AmEx much easier to do.

 

I probably pull the trigger on at least 70 percent of my "final-sale" purchases because of this peace of mind.

so lemme get this straight... amex lets you return final sale stuff just because you want to (no defects)? thats pretty nuts... and you get to keep the item.

the stores dont blacklist you for this? 

 

btw, if anyone copped the den im kimono tee in white XL from atrium and doesnt want it, pm me

Sounds like AMEX is the one that eats the cost.
