I always see you guys talking about new shipments being on the way for your stores, how long do you guys usually have to wait for your stuff? Is it 2-3 days priority mail style, 5-7 UPS ground, etc?: Do you have some kind of special delivery when ordering directly from the brands?

Typically, you buy for the next season during the current season. So, for example, nearly all of SS09 has been bought already. and will obviously not deliver for several months. There are sometimes reorders and special orders, depending on the policy of the vendor and the relationship between the vendor and the retailer, so sometimes when someone says "I can probably get a special order", (Say. Gary with Engineered Garments), you can believe it. Other times... you might have to wait a while.
