But a sleeve isn't a tube, I feel like this isn't going to work. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



There's way too much handstitching for them to move the zipper itself up the sleeves, I couldn't ask them to replicate this work. One option might be to just chop and use a shorter zipper, maybe right below the metal cross? Feel like that would screw up the jacket too much, though.



Anyways, I'll talk to tailor. Who likes this long-sleeves business? haha

 

Hey @nicelynice, I just went and looked at mine, and it does look well-nigh impossible to move the whole sleeve. Chopping could work if you also consider moving the silver cross up proportionally to the loss of material, but I don't know if that is possible given how easily it breaks.

roll 'em up? hang from a tree branch until your arms grow?

Good luck. Please let us know what you end up doing, and how it turns out. Beautiful jacket, btw!

I can't, actually. They're probably the least touchy-feely guys I've worked with, but I've had great help both before and after purchases, even with returns involved. The caveat is that I haven't bought a ton of stuff from them, so I have only a handful of transactions by which to judge, but I'd deal with them again no problem. I don't know if you want to air it here, but I'd be curious to know what happened with them to turn you off.

 

I also would add PN\P and ArchiveSF to nicely's list. Nothing but love from both places when it comes to returns, and the individuals I've dealt with have been extremely helpful and patient throughout my ditherings.

 

Oh, and as a general answer to your question, "Can we agree that <blank> is the <blankest>?," no, we can't. Right?

I've personally not had any issues with Darklands, aside from less-than-stellar sizing guidance (Campbell's idea of a 46 is my idea of a 44, so when I asked for chest measurements on a $2,500 USD CCP jacket he wasn't willing, which ended up in a frustrating return scenario when time was of the essence).

No need to discuss Darklands though, there's enough history of horror stories out there.

But I know Campbell is essentially a good person, from having worked for him at Komakino.

But I also know he can be "impatient" with clients, also from said experience.

Still, essentially a decent man all in all.

campbell been pretty nice to me, i've only emailed and asked for measurements but he complied everytime and was polite.

Uh-oh, shameless plug right here, right now: I sell a Label under construction handstiched knit REALLY THICK coat for 400 euro (price is firm for 3 hours).

Very similar to this one except it's reversible and pockets are different.

And wow, I have called Paypal, explained them the situation and they were able to open a claim for my gift payment regarding Zam Barrett's issues! Hope I can get my money back, it was one hell of a 6 months of almost begging for it.

 

Never thought it's possible but it is. @omar white , I suggest you to do the same if your paypal payment was a gift one.

 

Quite ironic again Zam replied 20 minutes after I have notified him I have resorted to paypal since I've left out of other options (but he kept silence for 5 days straight before it) and told me he is going to refund me just to end it but won't refund me any shipping costs (I guess since he meant it as in direct quote "I will update you with the refund of your payment MINUS SHIPPING COST later this week" as shipping from them to me, not a return shipping.

We'll see how it goes, clearly a progress for me at least.

Highly unlikely! Their store policies say 

PAYMENT

At the moment, we accept payment via PayPal only, with all credit card payment processed through PayPal.

 

 

 

So it's definitely Paypal. Look up your email or something. Try to look for dialogue@zambarrett.com ,this is the email used for paypal payments.

Yeah, people tend to respond quickly once they're forced into it. Glad to hear you got your money back. Too bad wormwood's too much of a bitch to actually solve the issues for any of his customers. Other than AlexTG, no one has gotten anything from him. He just ignores everyone because he thinks that will solve all his problems.
post #1616 of 2146

No, I have just succeeded in opening a claim, Zam still has 10 days to respond through paypal and I wonder how many days will it take for him to actually do it.

keep in mind that the last few weeks have been Italian summer vacation time, pretty sure the Sissy factory shuts down for a while too so it's not like there's anyone to provide an update from their side anyway. speaking of Sissy it's coming up on the second anniversary of one of my custom orders..

I asked Holger what he received, and it seems like he's carrying the whole collection. His staff is on holiday so no specifics yet, but worth a shot if you haven't asked.

I've asked Holger and Pita (Ink) overseas, Liberte and Lift domestic, none are receiving denim stock. PnP is getting denim in stock, but can't hold a pair for me.
