    By far the worst ever experience shopping online. I placed my order on the 16th December. After recieving the confirmation there was not further communication whatsoever. Upon checking up with Shaya on the 2nd of Jan, He replied promptly saying he will check with the order and get back. My happiness was short lived as its been 10 days and theres absolutely no reply about my order. All I ordered was some shoe care material. If its going to take this long to make that shipment, I'll happily order my stuff somewhere else.
    I have also forwarded all the order details and still no response. I am using this as a last resort to put it to Mr. Shaya's ear. Please wake up.

    Shaya offers exceptional customer service. I imagine this is some sort of oversight taking into account the holiday period, Pitti etc

    I agree to what you say. But a small piece of response is what I would expect. I dont mind waiting if he's genuinely busy which he definitely must be. But I wont know about it till he lets me know..

    My experience has been great with Shaya. I think he was at Pitti.

    I have also had a excellent experience with Exquisite Trimmings throughout the holiday season. Purchased twice, once during the Thanksgiving sale and another time around Boxing day. Both orders I received within a timely manner to Canada. Will definitely shop here again.

    If Shaya's away, he's away - it's a one man show as far as I know. But be patient, he'll work it out for you I'm sure. Bear in mind he's also had his sale going for the last few days so has a lot of orders to get out. He's not let me down yet.

    P.S., Shaya, I ordered something yesterday - if you could apply a discount that would be great, and combine shipping with my other order if it's not out yet! Thanks!

    P.P.S. That is spooky as hell: just as I hit "submit" on that, I got a partial refund from my order for yesterday. Shaya is most definitely at work, whether or not he's caught up on SF recently! (Thanks, bro!)

    Its probably the first time it feels good to be kicked down. I walked into my office today and there it was, a parcel sitting right on my table. I was confused as I wasn't expecting a package since I couldn't have a conversation with Shaya. It was otherwise. Everything packed up so appropriately. Even after the lack of communication, receiving the package was a pleasant surprise. Definitely will shop again. And sorry for the misunderstanding earlier.! Many Thanks
    Cheers

    I recently received a couple of lovely ties from Exquisite Trimmings - one of their own, a black grenadine, and a beautiful brown neat silk from Passaggio Cravatte - and both at ludicrously low prices courtesy of their January sale.

    The packaging and service were also excellent and the package took hardly any time to get to me in Tokyo. All in all, exemplary- thank-you!

    Cross-post from Passaggio Cravatte thread:

    [​IMG]

    And look at the beauty of this special tie for Exquisite Trimmings. It is a really dandy grenadine silk and a unique printed by hand with many years on its shoulders and lined just to the internal node with the bar tack of course stitched by hand by the twelve-fingered grandmothers of Campania. See the hemmed entirely by hand exactly as a hundred years ago! This picture shows the magic of the transparent!

    About 15 more designs will be added I was told. Expected to hit the shop sometime February. I understood something went weing with the initial order and most of the ties had to be remade.
