1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'd say UO's employees are the worst. At least the Gap employees try to seem positive and friendly; the UO employees are to busy trying to be too cool for you and their job

    screw you guy! you walk in and i greet your ass and you brush me off. i let you look around for a moment than stop by and ask if you need any help looking for anything you say "nope i'm good". then you go off to some other SA for help, fuck you buddy! don't even make commission but still makes me mad.

    So far the LV employee's been pretty nice.

    In my personal experience:

    • Online - Context
    • In person - Ralph Lauren in Tyson's Galleria (Washington, DC area).

    Context. It doesn't get much better than these guys. Every few weeks my roommate and I stop by and we're usually there for an hour or so learning about all the new stuff. Sam and Ryan know their stuff backwards and forwards and I love stopping by when I'm in the area.

    Jean Shop Soho.

    Epaulet.

    Word.

    I'd add Blue in Green, Need Supply Co., and the dudes at Detour too.

    online stores with best guys to deal with (that i have dealt with):

    Blue In Green
    virtualclotheshorse
    LeatherSoul Hawaii
    Mauro/denimbar
    The Lux Store Kevin Irons RL ebay powerseller
    yoox/revolveclothing/bluebee/stp


    I'd agree with all of these except bluebee.
    Bluebee sucks ass.

    Also, to be honest, except one other guy whose name I can't remember, Leather Soul in store help is a bit lacking. Tom of course is first rate but I've never been in store when he's there.

    I was just at Barney's and no one even said "hi " to me. I haven't been to a department store ( besides Barney's) in a long ass time. The guys at Jeffrey's in NYC are 100% helpful. for boutiques I hope to god Self Edge Epaulet Context MJK and secret service all give the best customer service. They all know what they are talking about and really take pride it what they do. Me on the other hand I know I can be a dick but hey I have come to live with myself but my staff BETTER give everyone in store, phone, or internet the BEST service possible. Best, mauro
    sig'd Farinelli's is awesome. Roden Gray and Gravity Pope are awesome. I'm pretty happy with those three ATM - except as I'm upping my game it's hard to get the items I want without going to really really boutique places. I'm hoping proxy services are good, they look like they are from when I have had conversations with SharpService, as I'll be doing that next year.

    how come? it's probably been a year or so, but the last time I ordered from them, they sent me the wrong pair of jeans (correct size, but wrong type). I emailed them about it and they told me to keep them, and had the correct pair at my door in <48 hours. doesnt really get much better than that imo...

    BTW, service at Epaulet sucks. I've sent numerous emails to Mike and all he does is answer my questions in the form of R. Kelly lyrics.

    What the hell is that about?

    Really? R.Kelly lyrics? Which song(s)? I bet he quoted lyrics from tracks off of the TP.3 Reloaded album, those are the only songs with lyrics that I could see working that situation.

    Might like to add that the service from 4 Horsemen is fantastic. I just did my first order from them Guy was prompt and pleasant to deal with.

    I'd say that as a mall brand store, Levi's provides excellent customer service. I know because I work there [​IMG] Well, the one at Ontario Mills in CA anyways.
