Because they are not used
post #41147 of 50738

I dont know if you wear shoes but the top is what happens when you do and the bottom is what they look like when that hasnt happened yet. I'll say no more on the matter.

Having owned a few of these, MMM manufacturing standards are inconsistent at best. Goes with the ethos of the brand.

Personally, I'd be fine with those soles.

LOL. Wow I can't believe that's all they did. Thanks for the response by the way!

That looks like the moulding, crap moulding. Doesn't look like wear and if they were worn would not both shoes have wear at the heel?

Send them back if you're unhappy.

I was looking more at the dirt in the center of the top shoes sole.  This is serious, should really send those shoes to a professional forensic team for further evaluation.

Sounds like I got lucky -- I received my all black CP Achilles today from Dope Factory -- correct shoe and correct size.

Update on ordering on the US Mr Porter site from outside the US:

My 2 Raf shirts arrived today. One of them fits perfectly, very happy. The other one I guess I could wear as well but ideally would be 1 size smaller.

Options:

1) Returning the shirt. Unfortunately, it turns out that:

"Outside the US and Canada, customs duties and sales taxes are non-refundable through MR PORTER."

I guess I could have looked that up before I ordered (2 mouse clicks, really), but when things are disappearing from your cart as you are entering your details... (btw who snatched the last size-S Public School V-neck flannel shirt from out my cart!?)

2) Exchange for a smaller size (even with sale over they still offer size exchanges), but:

"Shipping is free on the replacement item, but if you are based outside the US you will need to pay duties and taxes on this."

If you paid with PayPal this involves calling them at a US number to give them a credit card to charge the new duties and taxes with.

3) Keeping it and wearing it a size large.

I'm leaning toward the last option. Oh well.

Tailor?

Yes, a friend suggested the same yesterday. It's one of those oxford shirts though that already has darts not just on the back but on the front as well. Not sure how much more could be done to take in the sides (or if that would be any less expensive than just re-paying duties+taxes).

But yeah I'll be in Hong Kong in a few weeks maybe I'll take it with me and see if anything can be done cheaply there.

Thanks for this info and update. My order was cancelled – turns out I may of have had a lucky escape as on closer inspection it looks like the fabric didn't match my existing trousers.

But now knowing that they won't refund duties if you return puts a whole new shade of light on considering placing an order from the US MP site.

How do you pay duties and taxes on something that is free?

Do you have a link to where it says duties and taxes are not refundable?

Matches are offering free shipping to USA, and will refund taxes on returns. How come they can offer this and Mr P. does not?

Update: Had to dig to fidn this.

RECEIVING A REFUND

Your refund will either be credited to the original payment method or MR PORTER account and will include shipping costs for faulty items.

If your order has been sent to a destination within the US or Canada, all sales taxes will be refunded. Outside the US and Canada, customs duties and sales taxes are non-refundable through MR PORTER. However, you may be able to recover these by contacting your local customs bureau directly. As this may not be available for all countries, we recommend that you hire a customs broker if you wish to claim back duties on returned merchandise.

I don't know. I guess all it means is that Matches is willing to take a fat loss (on sales items anyway) if it builds them a stellar service reputation. Or maybe they're only offering it for a while to break into the American market and plan to change their policy later.

Just ftr, I didn't skip this to make things sound worse than they are but because I doubt this route would get me anywhere. But maybe I'll look into it, who knows.
