Remember that whenever there's fraud, it's always the retailer that's left holding the bag - no one loses money except the retailer.

 
Sure, but I am not talking about shipping to a different address, which happens to be a F&F company.   In this case, that freight forwarding address is the billing address of the card - ie, i am shipping the product to the card's billing address.   Changing the billing address of a card isnt something that someone can do just by stealing a card number.      

 

Re credit card fraud, here's the thing:  counter-intuitively, trying for zero fraud is generally not economically advisable.   That is why phone companies, banks, credit card companies, etc never shoot for zero defaults.   The reason being, to remove that last 0.5-1-2% of default/fraud cases, you have to screen your customers very, very extensively and that usually means turning away far more "good" customers: the loss in profits outweighs the savings in defaults.   For the record, this isnt just something i've read in the field - this is an area i've worked on as a consultant.

 

There are ways to improve the reliability of the customer without such an extreme method (ask for documentation, etc) - this reduces the default amount with a less severe loss of revenues.    

 

It is funny that I cannot buy a pair of $250 boots from Unionmade, or a pair of $150 jeans from 7ForAllMankind, but i can (and have) happily buy a $8,000 watch from Ashford or Jomashop without any issues.  As long as my credit card billing and shipping address matched up, no problems.     And in fact, immediately after this, I went ahead and bought a pair of boots from Allen Edmonds - using the same credit card and the same billing address.     

 

*shrug*  YMMV.

Did I put somone on my T. W. A. T. list?

Why does it matter? You blocked them, now get over it. Almost sounds like you'd like to unblock them again to create more drama.

Back to relevant topics, looks like J. Crew has a few of their Ludlow models on sale for 30% off, mostly winter ones I think. It's worth pointing out, as almost all sales codes do not include Ludlow.

Their inventory is wonky so its often worth checking on brands you like individually as opposed to on the sale page

Anybody know how their Emmett shorts fit size-wise?

 

Unis Archive sale now has an extra 20% off (for what's left).

Earlier today I asked them if they could swap a pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses I purchased on sale last night with a different colorway that was restocked today. Being that they were exactly the same price, and same model, I thought that they'd be able to directly do the swap without having to cancel the first order.

The customer service responded and said I'd have to cancel the first order and specifically repurchase the other. They said they placed the new pair in my reserved items menu and that it would be reserved for me for 24 hours, giving me plenty of time to go through with the purchase.

Knowing this, I had them cancel the first order, and planned to purchase the second pair after work. When that time came, it told me that the pair that was supposedly reserved for me was actually sold out.

I emailed them and they said they made a mistake in regards to the available stock, and that they were indeed sold out.

The best part is that the first pair, that I originally had cancelled, was also sold out before customer service responded.

So, needless to say, that irked me.
