    Would love to order, but the 17s have only 36-inch sleeves.

    I did not know that the British are a long-armed people.

    Of course if they are (conveniently) sold out of that particular item what can you do... [​IMG]

    Interesting Tro. Imagine... And where can you get 200 plus credit cards and all that relevant info within a few minutes before the scam is found out? Hint: You are looking at it...

    European dress shirts are sized by neck only, the arms are usually extra long in order to allow for alterations to your exact size.

    (trogdor @ May 27 2005,15:59) Maybe I'm paranoid, but it could also be a scam. Imagine: someone hacks their website, changes all the prices, then "leaks" the information that they have a sale, and promptly gathers the credit card numbers that flood in. [​IMG]

    Use your Amex, and you won't have a problem if it's a scam.

    The site shows the 12 pound price, but when I go to checkout, I'm charged full price. I'm afraid to go through with the order, for fear of having $1,000 charged on my card.

    Damn, by the time I put in my order, it already showed the regular prices and then the site crashed altogether.

    Whoever the lucky few who put in their orders at 12 pounds per shirt, please update if they honor your orders.

    I can promise you that just b/c you order something online at x price, the merchant does not have to honor it. Maybe in some cases they do (or choose to), but as many fat wallet.com'ers can attest, in no way is it a sure thing.

    I have personally bought, had my credit card charged, and received email confirmations/receipts for, in the last year:

    airline tickets
    pc's
    hotel rooms
    LCD monitors
    printers

    and the list goes on- 90% of them were not honored. Any smart company throws up a saying in their purchasing fine print that says they are not liable for pricing errors or glitches. Dell is FAMOUS for doing this- they've even been taken to court for it as a bait and switch tactic.

    Bottom line, it never hurts to try to get in on these deals but you should never, ever think you're entitled to it. It would be more like a miraculous surprise...

    (Panzeraxe @ May 27 2005,13:02) And yes, they will be forced to honor these orders even if this is a computer glitch as Internet orders are a legal binding contract. A few years ago, UA was offering non-stop tickets from Chicago to Delhi for a special price of $1,200 on their website - however, some technie accidentaly put it down as $12 and the entire flight was sold out in under a half hour - UA was still forced to honor that price.

    T M Lewin is a UK company, subject to UK law, as is any transaction with them. In UK law a marked price is considered only as an 'invitation to treat', and the seller is not obliged to sell to anyone. There has been a precedent case, in which a website offered goods at low prices; the vendor claimed it was a computer glitch, and the Court held that they did not have to honour the 'wrong' prices.
