    Yeah, Barney's has done it to me before though they're usually not too bad... and no one compares to OC when it comes to the "Oops we don't actually have that in stock" email. I've gotten it at least 7-8 times from OC, compared to 2 orders that have actually shipped. I think barney's has improved though... I ordered a couple things today from their online warehouse sale and when I checked an hour later the website had updated to show both as no longer available...so it seems like their stock system might be better now.

    Damn, that's quick. The worst is shops that give you ground, 2-day, and overnight options and then go and make it pretty much meaningless by taking 4-5 days to actually get the order sent out.

    Yeah, I was surprised, too! This made me actually go back and check the tracking link, and Fed Ex already shows it leaving their facility! I guess I got lucky - Barney's shipped immediately and Fed Ex got it out last night.

    I'm also wondering what condition my "final sale" "warehouse" good will be in. I'm hoping they look new and not beat up and shopworn.

    A couple things I ordered yesterday from Barneys were taken off the site as soon as I purchased, which can't be good

    I feel that is completely valid if they are up front about it. You are still getting it quicker than if you had chosen a slower shipping option.

    I ordered from Barney's Friday and received it yesterday which is pretty impressive.

    And if you're on the west coast it's the slowest shipping service in the world, Pony Express would probably be faster

    It's a trade off, man. You guys mostly get no tax, whereas we get faster shipping.
