    Why does ASOS require my date of birth to place an order? Dumbest thing I've ever heard of, and they're not getting my money for that reason alone.

    You don't have to tell the truth if you really don't want to? It's probably for demographic purposes anyway

    Along with angelo flaccavento, Nick Wooster and Milan Vukmirovic, Mo Anwar is my GOD!

    I found another and must say, a better photo of the last outfit on Vogue Japan:

    Seeing as how the SNS Herning Stark has been one of the more beasted-over items on the forum as of late, I figured I could provide a quick write-up on the Amalgam cardigan:

    - The overall length is definitely shorter, although it's still long enough for me at 6'1". I'd say it's a better option than the Stark for shorter guys. It's more of a normal sweater length relative to the elongated fit of the Stark
    - The collar is also shorter, which makes it a little easier to wear; the long collar is the one aspect of the Stark that I find a bit awkward.
    - Its still fine to size down for a slimmer fit (I have a 40" chest and a small in both models).
    - The buttons are at least as large as the buttons on the Stark.
    - The texture is really nice; I maybe like it even a little better than the texture on the Stark. The horizontal striping effect might not be for everyone, though.

    tl;dr - Short guys, get this instead of a Stark. Taller guys, it's still fine to size down.

    I'll post a fit pic when I get the chance.

    ive got a pair of viktor and rolf that have an extreme taper like that (but they've got an elastic hem)
    i think even marc jacobs did something similar to the CL you posted.

    I'm hoping that's the case, but I don't want to make something up only to have them verify it with my CC company (is that possible?) and then cancel my order when it doesn't match.

    Haven't any other SFers ever bought from ASOS / been asked this?



    It matters because they're already getting my address and full credit card details. Should I also give someone on the other side of the ocean my blood type and passport number so they can mail me a sweater? You should be curious why they want my DOB, not why I don't want to give it to them.

    Haven't ordered from Asos in ages but I'm pretty sure I had to give my birdthday too. I always make something up on the spot, I've done it with other stores too and never had any problem.

    Protip: if you plan or re-ordering from the same store in the near future, give them a date of birth that's close-by, they might send you a coupon or smthg

    I've bought from ASOS before (returned everything :laugh: ), and I don't remember whether they asked for DOB. It's probably a) for market research or b) so they can send you a birthday greeting/coupon, maybe both.

    If you want to be paranoid about how much organizations know about you, focus your paranoia on the major credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, Transunion).
