1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    The entire Corben stock was gone within a day and then the entire stock is being returned the following week. This is hilarious. I wonder if Polo is going to put the same description and picture back to the website after it receives the entire stock back from us.

    My guess? Yes.

    *DISCLAIMER: Seller offers no guarantee, express or implied, that the actual shoes will be in mink suede, on the 89 last, or in fact be made by Edward Green, nor does seller offer any guarantee that shoe design, parts and workmanship, including, but not limited to, uppers, soles, insoles, welts and laces, will be in comportment with acceptable Edward Green standards of quality. Buyer is advised that general characterizations such as "a steal" are qualitative in nature, may be an exaggeration, and are largely dependent on the value system and beliefs of individual buyers. Therefore, seller cannot guarantee that, once in receipt of the shoes, buyer will indeed find them, with or without regard to the price paid, "a steal" whether as such, or with respect to any defined period of time, such as a year, a decade or a century.

    The box in the pic says "Tan Burnished - Corben".

    Wow. The Polo Carlson at $199 in burnished chestnut looks way better than these.

    I'm glad I missed the boat on this one.

    Those look nothing like the original picture. What a joke...

    I'm pretty sure they can't -- has to be a Polo store. Or so I was told.

    Hey, AF, the original taker for my extra pair just backed out. Are you still interested? If yes, they're yours. [​IMG]

    For the truly curious (I must get a life) the box and packaging weighs in at a shade under 4.5 pounds. [​IMG]

    Ah well, back to work...

    Dear Dan,
    We are writing to inform you of a product description error on Polo.com that may have led to you to purchase of a pair of shoes on September 10th. The incorrect copy and image for the Purple Label Corben shoe were inadvertently posted on our website. The shoe you will receive is 100% leather and made in Italy.

    We see from our records that your order has already shipped. If you decide that you would like to return this purchase, please use the enclosed return label. We will waive the $5 return shipping fee and credit your original method of payment.

    We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

    Warm regards,

    Rita

    Customer Service

    Thank God my wife doesn't know about this forum. If she knew that I tried to buy these, got closed out and then wasted a ton of time reading/posting on this thread - which is what will keep me at work late tonight - she'd have a $h1t fit.

    I phoned customer support who were very nice about it and are refunding the cost + the shipping. Ah well it was fun while it lasted.

    I'm confused by the email from Polo referring to "the Purple Label Corben shoe"

    I have just taken delivery and they are a rather unpleasant wholecut in a nasty brown. They are made in Italy and from the Polo range. Photos to follow...
    Oh well. Anyone want my other pair when it arrives? I seriously doubt the people who PM'ed me still want them.

    May I nevertheless request that everyone return their "Purple Label" shoes to the Rodeo Drive branch instead of the Mansion? [​IMG]
