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.

    So I bought an item off Yoox but there were some defects as well as it ending up not fitting. I want to return and re-buy it in a smaller size, except now they have raised the price $100. Do you think if I re-bought it now they would refund me the difference? Don't really want to wait for my return to fully complete since that'll take a while and this is the last item left.

    They have an exchange system in place when entering your return online. Granted if any other size is left, which it sounds like it is.

    Just lie say you got the wrong size initially. What are they going to do?

    Why do you have to lie? It had defects, get them to send you the one you want and refund you. No big deal. Call them and complain. Among the defects could be that the size is wrongly stated.

    He says it doesn't fit. Order a new one at same price, put the old one in box and watch what they do - nothing. They'll process as if you returned the newer (more expensive) item.

    Try rereading his post.

    Edit; Ah, so you're saying he hold onto both and then swap the receipts. Gothca. I assumed his old one was already being returned.

    However, there have been issues in the past with people getting fingered for defects they didn't cause, so I'd take a picture or two and include a written message acknowledging the defects. Saying nothing is no good.

    When you exchange for a different size on Yoox, they supposedly hold the other size for you until the return arrives

    Yoox has price adjusted for me when I returned an item and my size showed up later at a higher price. They adjusted to the lower price for me when I emailed about it.

    Switching the item in the box for yoox does not work. The tag on each item is unique and scanned when they get the return. I found this out the hard way

    I know this is likely impossible, but ANYONE offering Alden 405's on discount?

    Nope! J.Crew says "This item is excluded from all promotional discounts" when you put Alden 405s in your 'shopping bag'

    It depends on the make you're looking for. With rare exceptions, such as a J. Crew code accidentally applying to third party items, standard Alden makes aren't allowed to go on sale. Sometimes non-standard makes go on sale, but that depends on the store.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Yeah the thing that complicates things too is that the jacket is listed twice separately so the exchange system doesn't even offer the option to hold it for me. Since the old one I bought only has M and L listed but the new one has an S. Really weird and frustrating lol.

    The flaw is that the shoulder one one side of the jacket doesn't lay flush against my shoulder. The way the pattern was cut or how the back and front panels were stitched together just isn't straight from the collar to the shoulder seam.
