    I think zara designs are top notch, the main issue is the finishing touches and the quality of the materials used. I had a pair which was very comfy but ended up in tatters after a few months

    Thank you very much for your comment. I am very sorry if I have offended you in any way, that was not my intention. I can assure you these pens are very high quality handcrafted pieces.

    The reason he told you not to post has nothing to do with the quality of your product. This forum is not a place for retailers to freely advertise their goods, especially in unrelated threads. This is the recent purchases thread, advertising your own product does count as a recent purchase. That's just bad forum etiquette. However, the more serious offence is using the forum for free advertising. Vendors may seek affiliate vendor status, which costs money, if they wish to present their product to the SF community. Once attained they receive their own official thread on the forum where a post like the one you got burned for might be more appropriate.

    Thank you for clarifying that. I was not aware of all those details, I thought because all post gets reviewed I was not doing anything wrong. I was under the impression, that I cannot add links and such, but showcasing a product for people to see was not an offense. I will remove my thread so I follow the good forum etiquette. Thank you for your information again.

    Dainite soles are suppose to be better in wet terrain than traditional leather soles while keeping that look. Out of experience they still slip on wet surfaces, but of course offer some more traction than flat leather soles. In snow I would skip traditional leather soles and go with Dainite soles for more traction. Still nothing beats lug soles for snow and rain.

    Dainite is pretty good for rain

    I have a bunch of nice english boots / shoes with dainite soles for the storm season over here

    I find Dainite great for wet pavements, but it's still best to avoid metal grates etc. Hopeless on ice and snow (traditional DM soles are surprisingly good on ice).

    Peir Wu coat arrived.... and it's got a tear right in the front of it. The pockets are also tearing out of the lining, though that can be fixed, I guess. So much for "like new." Wondering whether to ask the seller for a refund... I love the coat, I'm not finding it again in my size, and I didn't even know it existed in this awesome green color, but this is gonna bug the hell out of me. You can see it in the fit pic as the black spot 2/3 of the way down

    Email Peir Wu and ask her if she still has some material lying around to fix everything for you.

    ^ fit looks great, but yes that tear would bug me. I'm sure a near invisible mend would be possible, but a decent job will probably cost a bit.

    I have a good tailor who can probably help me out (and I'm sure they can take material from the folded over part of the interior pockets), but yeah, I'm sure it's gonna run a good amount to fix the pockets and this gash. The seller took a looong time to ship out and wasn't very communicative so I wonder if it's even worth it asking him for a refund or to cover repairs.

    I have to say, that coat looks spectacular. I could live with the black spot but that grease upfront, I would try to fix. Is that what you mean with the tear? @gettoasty , given the fairly solid fabric, how would extra fabric fix that?

    I agree though to contact Peir for advice as this coat is worth every penny saving/ fixing.

    Taking it to my tailor now, I'll see what the word is from him - whether it's a simple fix or whether it's gonna cost me and look ugly.

    Ugh, I am done with Yahoo!Auctions for awhile. Most auctions are fine, but there is no recourse for the buyer - between this and an outright scam where I had to file a police report and will be lucky to see my money again, I'm out $1000 this week. Shoulda just bought that PS4 instead

    You bought that Peir off YJP? How would I search Peir Wu on yjp. Coat looks great, love the fabric.

    Sucks that you got screwed over twice though. Hope the tailor can fix that tear and you figure it out with that scam.

    Guess I'm losing out to you since we're the same size I think (Small/46?)

    Tailor is sending it to a fabric repair specialist (I didn't know those existed) for a look... might take a couple months to get done.
