    Is Mr Porter (UK) intentionally misleading customers? On several occasions now I have ordered what has been advertised as: "Only one left" - only to check the inventory directly after placing my order to see the same size still available and still advertised as "Only one left". Either this is a glitch with their inventory control and if you place an order for that item it will be cancelled due to lack of stock, or they are misleading customers? This has happened on at least 3 occasions during the Sale so I do see something going on here which maybe underhand sales practice.

    BTW: Last day of the Mr Porter UK Sale and there do appear to be some increased discounts (up to 70%) on a few things.

    Did you try adding that size to your basket after purchasing because it can come up saying sorry this item is out of stock, before the actual size availability has updated.

    I assume some stores put "only one left!" when there's really a few left.

    Yes I put it into my basket and I could of ordered it. And it's still showing the size available several hours after I ordered the last one! Just checked.

    It doesn't really matter, but Mr. P should not be doing this - it's manipulative and I expect it's also something that would be deemed inappropriate by trading standards.
