    Would guess that you can hit these figures more easily if
    1) you're shopping the design section
    and/or
    2) your account includes an acquisitive spouse (specifically, a female)

    Actually that's a no on both counts. I'm not interested in the design section (I don't think I've ever browsed it) and I've never bought my girlfriend anything from Yoox.

    I was slightly shocked myself. I've bought a lot of cashmere knitwear and several Cesare Attolini jackets and suits. Plus all the little things all mount up. I think I've probably returned more than I previously said though.

    20% off on selected items, including sale items. Picked up a pair of wool flat front Incos for $51, hope they fit. Got a box from Yoox yesterday with 2 pairs of Incotex Sartoriale, both in Super 120s flannel, one pair in blue the other in dark gray. They were pleated, so some here might not dig them, but at $78 each I didn't think twice.

    damn, how you find the Sartoriale line?

    i once thought those with button fly should be Sartoriale line, and bought two pairs. finally i got a RED line and a mainline[​IMG]

    however,the both i bought are all not wool, so maybe i need to try some wool one with button fly?

    I didn't know they were Sartoriale until they arrived, so I just lucked into them. Sartoriale are made in Italy and have a two button extra closure in the front that is an extension of the lining. These have a zipper, I'm not sure if a button fly actually denotes any particular Incotex quality level.

    Thanks! I haven't saw made in italy incotex before, so how can one tell a Sartoriale line of incotex besides the made in italy label? and why are they better?

    Better fabrics and more handwork are the main things that make them better. Besides the Made in Italy tag, the additional closure system (3rd pic above) and the basting on all the pockets. Usually they'll also have a Sartoriale hanging tag, but these didn't, so it probably fell off.

    Anybody ever get an item with a security tag still on it? Do I have to send it back to get it removed? Is it even Yoox's or did it somehow get missed when it was sold on from the original retailer?

    If it something that Yoox cant remove, can I use that as leverage to ask for an additional discount?

    Any experienced observations would be appreciated.

    so...my first Yoox experience wasn't all that impressive.

    first of all, a pair of pants arrived missing a closing button with no replacements in pockets or elsewhere.

    then i received two, what i believe to be, diffusion lines.

    can anyone chime in and inform me if these are indeed diffusion?

    thanks.

    I'm not familiar with gta, but I'd be surprised if the Giab's were made to any lesser standard. In any case, like all yoox purchases ymmv. Sometimes you'll get inco sartoriales and sometimes you'll get something else worse than expected. If you're not happy return them and roll the dice again. Take all part of the yoox experience.

    it's annoying when you receive products with minor issues, but given yoox's inventory size i do understand when it happens. i got a couple of items missing a button or with loose seams etc. if you want to keep the item you can take a photo and email them for a price reduction. they've always accommodated my requests.

    for the giab's pants i won't necessarily call them diffusion but just from the sport product range. they might have a slightly looser fit or certain technology was applied in the manufacturing process. giab's seems to keep a closer check on the production volume to ensure quality. if you are really curious just contact them directly and ask about their sport range at info@giabs.it
