1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I am pretty sure you are not getting the idea of a price match. A lot of places will do it if you could get the same item elsewhere for less, in order to get your business over a competitor. But there is no incentive to lower the price just because you ask, when they are the only game in town. They have succeeded in doing what every retailer really wants to do, which is to hold an exclusive item that takes them out of the price war. In fact, very much the opposite. If a retailer gives the idea that their prices are negotiable, they not only lower their margins, but incur a lot of additional overhead.

    perhaps i shouldve explained myself more. other places have the shoe im looking for, but not my particular size.

    i get the idea of price matching quite well.... not an idiot guys lol, so thanks for the subtle condescension. should be a given that when one price matches an item, they are trying to get the same price from a competitor... only ask because revolve and forward price patch competitor sites that have the same item in stock even if the size im looking for is sold out. in fact, i have done this numerous times from them.

    You should ask them if they'll price match the price you have in your head.

    Revolve is an odd company in any number of ways. I don't know how well they are doing, but if it works for them, as a form of lead generation, and they have it worked into their margin, good for them. They are possibly the only site I know of that has a perpetual 10% coupon code (it used to be 15%). It's possible that this gets in the coupon shoppers or the web comparison shoppers. I'm not sitting in on their strategy meetings, so I wouldn't know. But what you describe is pretty unusual.

    Just had to return a defective item back to Matches and they deducted the shipping (back to them) off my refund ! Don't think you're getting a price match

    Never had that happen. That being said it doesn't sound unreasonable given that they have free international shipping.

    Are you sure ? I payed 10 euros delivery for the order and I live in the EU. Right now they have a coupon on for free shipping on orders over 250 € so it's not a regular thing

    So, I'm thinking of buying some Greats slip-ons, and apparently if two of us buy together, we both get 15% off. Anyone want in?

    I'll do it, but only if you are willing to tell them that they sent you two right shoes while I tell them they sent me two lefts and then we can both demand half price.

    Club Monaco has added some more items and discounts to their sale selection, extra 30% off sale code on the homepage.

    Some Lardini Blazers at like 90% off and some other good deals to be had.

    Thanks for this. I bought a Lardini with this sale yesterday but I just grabbed the grey linen knit one as they dropped the price from yesterday.
