Hi guys, I'm a longtime lurker, an Australian living in Europe.
As I'm considering a purchase from them, has anyone recently purchased from Hungant and can give feedback? What makes them rather confusing is that they've an array of outlets: an eBay shop, a new Etsy store and two websites; with slight variations in pricing for the same item. They even have an Amazon presence.
Specifically, I'm interested in hearing of experiences with requesting custom orders — e.g. quirks and silk linings; would you have had to email them beforehand? Did it add extra time to the order?
What feedback do you guys have on the quality of their leathers? I get that labour costs are lower in Romania, but some of their prices seem too good to be true for the type of leathers they offer.
I had a pair of Hungant dark brown deerskin gloves, rabbit fur-lined made right before this winter. I'm pleased with them, they look very nice and are quite warm (not enough for the coldest days in Montreal but great for most of the time). The finishing and particularly the sewing is definitely not as nice as my Hestra table-cut gloves but they cost a lot more. The leather seems to be of good quality. I had no issue ordering through their website. It was fairly quick and easy.
