1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    You guys asked in your survey and actually listened to the responses! [​IMG] to the free upgrade to 3-day shipping and free shipping in case of an exchange or return. Bravo!

    If only they'd listen to their pool of potential overseas customers and offer service to people outside the US. We're desperate!

    These guys are fucking smart. They have created a business model that works really well (apparently even during an economic recession). Also they excel in hyping products to the herd of SF lurkers.. I mean just look at how much hype there was surrounding the BoO sale and how little action there is for the same shirts at literally the same prices in the B & S forum.

    Is there a reason why GG won't ship internationally?

    Probably the same reason many other U.S. based sites don't? I think Saks just recently offered Canadian shipping.

    The stuff that they have for kids is terrific, and I've been enjoying buying clothes for my four year old boy. I kinda like the whole limited sale setup.

    Logistics, customs, reliability, fraud, having to accept international payment, currency conversions...

    Thank YOU!

    Mostly for the reasons explained in this thread and that we also want to secure our domestic business.
