    Yeah, agreed, WW was great until they changed their shipping service. I've gotten large custom bills on my last two orders, and if you need to return something, good luck on getting your customs fees back.

    First:

    Suspension Point is now open!

    Shop HERE for Schneider and other great designers might appeal to those who like Schneider (and there is a 10% off launch promotion HERE)

    Okay, shameless advertising over...

    Second:

    In response to the shirt sizing; for spring the longsleeve button-down shirts "View" and "Patio" seem to fits smaller than the other models.

    Third:

    While it is still a long way away, here is a small preview for Fall-Winter 2012 (picture from the showroom) I thought I'd share:

    I would love nothing more than buying from you but your selection of Schneider is fairly limited (or edited, curated depending on how you look at it), you didn't buy any of the references I purchased from WW and even if you did have that shirt for example, you don't seem to buy any sz 7 so I'd be SOL in this case.

    I'll keep checking and hope to buy stuff from you as soon as possible

    I understand about the limited (or curated) selection. One reason for this is that the first season (SS12) is a test launch for the store. Another reason is that the store has a rather tight aesthetic focus (and color palette as well). I am quite happy with the SS12 selection we have considering the above factors; there are some truly great pieces that I haven't seen any other retailers pick up. The good (and sometimes daunting) thing about how Schneider does business is that the large selection, especially in terms of fabrics, allows each retailer to be very specific about how they want to portray themselves and the brand.

    While Schneider is excellent, I hope that people also take the time to explore other labels that share a similar modern, clean, detail oriented vision (and I do not mean only the ones also available at Suspension Point...although that may be a good place to start :D). One of my goals is to be open about how the store functions. If you have any comments / questions / suggestions about the store or about the designers and pieces I have seen through this process (even if the store does not carry that label or style) I'll be happy to hear / answer them.

    For what it's worth, I think you did a really bang up job with the store -- both with Schneider specifically and in general. I can't think of a single other boutique where for every designer on the stock list there's at least one piece I would love to buy. Granted, the fact that I tend to gravitate towards blacks, blues and greys might have something to do with that. Also on a strictly technical level I think the website is set up very well - clean, simple and very user friendly.

    Although prices at retail are a bit out of my reach, I have to say Suspension Point has a particularly impressive buy in that there are only one or two pieces in their entire stock that they have that I wouldn't wear.

    Platypus, excellent. Those white guidis are awesome and I found something else I will probably end up copping that is fucking great.

    Platy, 1 little suggestion for the website. Pictures are cropped instead of re-sized. You have to go full-view to see the whole garment.

    Really cool brands and items. Great webstore :slayer:

    Would there be the possibility of some shipping discount from the standard $40 to Europe if I was only ordering the Ute Ploier scarf?

    Thanks everyone! Now go buy something :D :D :D

    Skitlets: Thanks you for the suggestion. The image cropping thing is something that bothers me as well. Not to delve into boring web-development issues, but we had to make some changes to the site editor and now we would have to re-tool / re-take all the pictures. This is something that will be addressed in the future, but for now you can click the expand button on the product page which takes you to the full image.

    Sexonfabric: All our standard rates include tracking and that (when shipping from Canada) is unfortunately quite expensive. If you have any issues / questions about shipping please email us and we will try our best to address those issues and work something out.

    Hi Guys!

    Would like put it straight regarding some issues about WW Shipping and measures. We have always shipped by FEDEX EXPRESS. The orders should reach to US up to 3 days. It may take longer if you order just before the WE, or during a bank holiday or it got stuck in customs for longer than normal. If it takes longer than 3 days or If you have problems with costumes please let us know and will be happy to help you out at our end. We will re found the shipping cost if it is a Fedex fault.
    As for the measures we try to do it right and as you know SS sizes vary depending on the style. Sometimes the fit is slimmer or larger so please if you are not sure ask us to remeasure so you are 100% sure.
    We are here to help you guys so don't hesitate to contact us for any problems or questions. Thank you so much for your support.

    I've always had a good experience with WW.

    I KNOW I'm getting hit with customs so I only purchase stuff on sale there and tally it in the total cost, however the item is ALWAYS to me in 3-4 business days.
