    just to be clear, does citi price rewind include the shop reducing the price of an item you bought? or does it have to be different shops? in other words, can you get the difference back via price rewind from the same shop

    I will add Discover has a much more lenient rewind policy, with up to $500 within 90 days, unlimited. I think they will probably be changing it soon though, given how popular it is.

    @ambyance Citi and Discover will match the "lowest advertised price" for whatever you buy -- generally people use this for electronics and home stuffs, very popular things -- and you can help them out by screenshoting the lower price and sending it to them. Same shop or different shop; doesn't matter.

    I know they can be super picky though. Discover declined a friend of mine because he wanted to price match a different color but otherwise identical iPad (silver v gold, same specs) so I imagine doing size for clothes would be a similar policy.

    How using these policies could be considered bad form by anyone is beyond me. And I work for a credit card company. The retailer certainly isn't paying the difference.

    I made a joke about how someone should do a rewind chargeback on sin's proxy service. It was a dumb joke, so I erased it.

    Anyway, the insurance company thing makes sense. If it's just coming from them, seems like fair game. I was under the initial impression that the company was charging back stores, which really seemed lame.

    See below...


    What??? Thats not what you said at all. Read the below garbage, you implied that I take advantage of people using my proxy service. You are a complete piece of shit for that. On top of it you are an idiot because you didnt understand a credit card feature and automatically started implying that i rip people/retailers off . Fuck you!

    Relax, it was a joke.

    If you really want to make such a big deal out of this you both live in SF, meet outside Uniqlo.




    If you have questions about your CC, call or research online first so you know what to ask. After several phone calls you should have a better idea, some reps are more knowledgeable than others.

    Now let's keep this thread back on track. That recent post with the Islay sale is pretty nice. Is the toe box really as round or is there some taper?

    I can see where the confusion might have started, as the original question stated that they asked the retailer for the price protection, and they weren't having any of it.

    Either DWW has it out for you, or just wanted to chime in with a snarky joke before anyone else did, but it was a bad one. Maybe let's give him the benefit of the doubt, and all just move on?

    He made 2 comments (see above post), it wasn't once so he doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt. I won't talk about this any further. However, i don't appreciate me sharing/helping some members turning into bad jokes at my expense.

    Does S.N.S. Herning do any end of season discount (direct, on their site)? I know they did a Black Friday one, but was wondering if anyone remembered one around this time--or, say end of Jan?

    Thanks for sharing this information. Just signed up to Discover and will probably sign up to Citi's Thank You Premier once the intro period finishes. I can finally get rid of my CapitalOne card... no idea how I've stuck with one credit card this whole time but just an FYI for everyone else - they're sub-par when it comes to purchase protection. Unlike my Amex Plat, but that card is reserved for business and travel.

    Why are you being such a baby? First of all, even if you did use the rewind thing, it has nothing to do with your buyer. If you had the option you'd be dumb not to use it. Second, I doubt every retailer accepts paypal like you claim to use. Third, stop being such a baby

    Everything below is my summation from pining for and reading up on Islay's for the better part of, oh, 6 years. I've never handled or tried any on though, so it's all gleaned second hand...

    The standard CJ Islay is on the 365 last which most consider roomy and has a very round, some say slightly bulbous, toe box. That's not necessarily bad though, since it makes it a classic shit-kicker boot shape. See the Quintessential CJ thread for many posts about sizing down for it (depending on what socks you plan to wear, etc.)

    However, the in-house versions made for Purdey in my link (and I believe also for some other retailers, like Richard James, and occasionally Paul Stuart) are on the 325 last which is a touch more streamlined and generally considered TTS or, at most, a .5 size large (again, depending on socks and such). Note that even though the 325 isn't as full as the 365, it's still supposedly very much a country boot shape, which is what I'm hoping for.

    my last post on the subject is above, nothing else to say except refer to above and move on.


    I had northcote in 10.5 so i think 1.2 down is the way to go.

    so many people on this forum are such divas and easily offended

    it totally affirms my image of a lot of the users on here (i.e. that of weirdos who think that buying expensive clothing makes them "gentlemanly" and "proper"; explains all of the pretentious posts with random french/greek/latin that i often see too)


    idk why i'm trying to act surprised over dudes who're into fashion being bitches, though (though i say this as a 5'8, 125 lbs. semi-androgynous asian man, so i guess the irony or whatever is just lost on me loool)
