Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's a relatively time consuming process and as you note the measurements may not be made the same way the consumer would.  Still I find it helpful with some brands that I'm not familiar with and in my case it's not like I'm in a market where I can just go try on a lot of brands that interest me.  Of course none of that is End's problem and they have a business to run on top of them surely being willing to provide measurements upon request.  However for me it's unfortunate as they have since I've been buying from them always provided them and they've been quite helpful, and this is coming from someone who has spent a small fortune with them over the past few years considering all the Cabourn alone that I've purchased.

Ummm.....but they do provide measurements. Every item has a sizing tab in the description:


If you click on the "size help and measurements" link, you get detailed measurements:

Damn.  I never clicked on that link as I thought it was just generic measurements.  The just switched things up on me.  Thanks for pointing that out!

Does TBS restock monthly? Quarterly? I've noticed they had the low white achilles in a 46 for a while now. Am waiting for another sale from them (specifically that shoe) patiently.

TBS probably restocks seasonally unless they specifically ask the brand for a restock of a (popular) product.

Ahh, thanks. I guess the low achilles will have to wait. I had my chances and wasted them, oh well.

 

Another question about TBS: Do they send codes only to those who have been customers beforehand? I'm assuming that because I have not ordered from them and have not received any codes after signing up.

Oki-ni, Corner, Opening Ceremony and SSense.

That's just for the sales listed by LA Guy. It's been a year of consumption.

Edit: Not Oregon Trail year of consumption.

Opumo SALEPREVIEW2016 for 30% off. A bunch of CPs, Buttero, etc in several sizes. Lowest price on those sneakers I have ever seen. Man, I quit buying designers sneakers otherwise I'd be all over it.

Doesn't appear to work on some CPs unfortunately. White Achilles low appear to excluded, but blue ones worked.

Good haul.

 

I guess I should be thankful I can't find my size in CPs.  Looks like I'll need to wait on new season.

Anyone know when porter will pay me to take stuff off their hands? I don't care what it is if it's cheap enough I wouldn't mind having it.

Still no sale on crullers.
post #46168 of 50777

Can't tell if jab or a 180 change of heart.

post #46169 of 50777
Don't be crullers
