They have separate inventory systems for online and in-store stock. So sometimes you order something, but it's already been taken off the shop floor.

Supposedly difficult to merge since their online and retail operations are really big.

(That's what I've been told, anyway).

I think one issue may be that they pull stock at times from their physical stores to fulfill online orders. The item may be purchased in-store by the time the web fulfillment people come around to collect. There may be other issues as well.

I view buying from UM, especially deep into the sale, as a bit of a crapshoot. As such, I don't get bent out of shape if an item goes unfulfilled. It is probably something I can and really should live without.

The "no return" policy on sale items is the main thing that disappoints me.

So many of the independent stores have final sale policies for sale items.

True, and I get the logic. Unionmade just seems particularly large for an independent, so I kind of wish they were a bit more lenient. Maybe returns for store credit or something. Or maybe at least store credit on 40% markdowns, but not their Archive sale.

Anyway, so it goes.

I agree with you, DWW. This is where Mr. Porter has a huge edge, for example.

Thanks for posting about Unionmade -- picked up a couple Merz henleys.

ok, bought the floral jacket in S.

well, "bought", we'll see if this goes through. wink.gif

[we'll also see if it goes with anything i own, precise shade of beige looks different on every website carrying it, as well as the brand's own lookbook... sigh]

somehow i never heard about unionmade fuckery on websales, but it doesn't surprise me after visiting their b&m a couple of times.

on a semi-related note, i'm kind of baffled how they manage to stay in business despite keeping all of their stock at full price until well after virtually every other store has already gone through multiple rounds of discounts.

Haha ya, they also pretty much copied south willard's line card every season for a little while.
