    right here, for now
    sorry to hear that. I've experienced a single problem with a boot that was caught at QC before being shipped to me
    when I rejected it, they immediately remade the boot without question, comment or excuse.

    That looks even better with that shading and the contrast on the cap.

    Would be interested to know as well. Leffot trunk show?


    At SC's price point it better be perfection.

    Several people were missing medallions and I had ordered black contrast stitching and black piping and received a natural contrast and piping.

    Would be pretty hard to mess up black on black on black, especially comparing to peacocking Frankenstein customizations.

    A missing medallion and contrast stitching and piping are hardly 'peacocking Frankenstein customizations'.

    They are very basic options.

    It's not like people requested a completely new pattern.

    At $1600+ any errors are inexcusable.

    Can you really compare Vass and StC?

    Would you expect something at twice (or three times) the price to have the same attention to detail/finesse? Not a fair comparison.

    +1, never had an issue at all with StC.

    I guess, but small details and such they get right. Hell, I even designed a model with them and they nailed that. I mean, shit happens though. As long as they remake and the customer is happy in the end, meh. Just eats into Crispin's profit margin. High end tailors like Rubinacci are known to price in their own fuck ups as well. In the end it seems that St. Crispin's customers as tailors like Rubinacci's customers are happy in the end.

    I don't know the % of people who get fuck ups via email vs. trunk shows, but I would be curious. FWIW, I have placed orders both in and out of trunk shows and haven't had a problem.

    I currently have 11 pairs of St. Crispins, including 2 pairs of seamless wholecuts, and have no issues with any of them.
