Cut out the middleman mate, per the AOL Mantra. Buy direct from Adriano /Alessandro's artisanal workshop aka Alessandro Cappi factory.

i dont get what you are trying to say.
Did you have the "no middleman" statement understood as the owners of AOL are producing the shoes by their own hands in their own workshop? If you did, you have bigger problems than this, if you did not, why are you acting stupid?

AOL's model is clear to everyone: they find the craftsmen / companies to produce the goods according to AOL's criteria, and then they sell it to the customers. They are selling AOL branded items directly to you.

Looks like shills out in force defending their paymasters.

If you cannot see a scam as it is, you need a neurological examination and/or psychiatric evaluation fast.

Only a fool, or someone delusional can’t see that it’s better to pay $400 plus for CP’s. Those of us that purchased SF-01’s are clearly sheep, ripe for slaughter.

Received notice via e-mail that the leather Cafe Racer jackets are just about completed and ready to ship. Really looking forward to it!

@ArchibaldRoh

I have always admired and supported the business model that Archibald London adopts and promotes. Since the shipment of the café racer got delayed last February, I've been fully understanding about the difficult situation and agreed to be patient. However, I must say that I am deeply disappointed by the email that your customer service sent me today:

Hi Nicola,

I hope you are well.

We just received the pieces at our center in London, and the team have informed us that there seemed to have been a communication error between ourselves and the craftsmen and the piece for you was made in the incorrect size.

We have spoken to them and given the current covid situation and delays with Horween being able to provide the original Number 8 (burgundy) colour, we have the following options that we can offer:

- The Burgundy in M
- The Forest Green (turn-around time is 1 week+ as we have the leather available)
- The Dark Brown (turn-around time is 3 weeks+ as we will need to wait for the leather to arrive from the suppliers)

Sincere apologies for not being able to accommodate your original request, however please do let me know what you think.

Kind Regards,

Alex

A serious business cannot kindly ask a customer to be patient and then, after months, communicate to him that the company is not able to accommodate his original request due to a mistake.

I find even more irritating that the present communication was made to me only upon my inquiry, after that I did not receive any update for more than a month . The last update I received (always upon my inquiry) was indeed on March 11, and I was told that you were looking at late March for the shipment.

As you certainly know, trust is a key element to run a business. I strongly advise you not to downplay it.

Nicola
