    They deleted it off their facebook page (three times) within 90 seconds.

    I sent a follow-up email with the same message and also letting them know (politely) that they were having tech problems with their facebook page.

    Ps. Good work Tobias ;)

    I love ranting on companies' Facebook pages. The idea that people might complain on there sometimes seems genuinely never to have occurred to them...

    I think Glue Store have Edwin and some other higher quality jeans brands. You might want to check them out.

    I sense your disappointment. We have let you down, and let you down badly.

    I, for one, swear never to buy Giordano ever again and I encourage my brethren here to join me in this pledge.

    From now on I will only ever wear neatly pressed wranglers from Sheplers for $21.99 (down from $24.99 - save $3!)

    Re Bludnstones since they closed the factory in Tasmania and moved to Thailand I no longer buy them.

    Also I wonder if these US companies setting up mirror sites have anything to do with the fact that some Australian retailers are moving to an online presence and will be flogging a similar product or is this the face that internet shopping is now going to present to consumers? Have one site for local buyers and one for global customers? Just a thought.
