Yes, but they were deerskin socks. Given Gilt's no-returns policy, if they end up being regular calf-skin socks, there will be hell to pay! BUT, srsly, if this kind of stuff gets you bent out of shape, take a breather. It's a non-issue. There are many reasons to order (or NOT to order) from Gilt... but this shipping thing seems minor and not something that will dissuade most. Gilt's relatively uninspired items, not-particularly amazing prices, lack of returns, "gilt-only" designer items, etc. seem much more damaging.
