Any thoughts on Jort Boots FW160707?

I couldn't pull this up on the US site. A few questions:

- How are much are they selling it for at outlet price and the original price?
- Is it goodyear welted?

I see a couple of premium models in the US site only discounted about 50% and they are sitting.

I guessed you were the one because I went there and they told me a guy bought the whole outlet and returned it :D

Extra Edit: Alterations count as regular sales and items per customer, so if you go there and do an alteration without buying anything you wreck their daily average. Which I think it was around 2750 SEK per customer? The target. And 1.6 items per customer.
Former US Susu employee here, from what I remember, alterations didn't count towards IPC. It's been a couple years since I worked there, but I think our goal was set at 2 items per customer and the per customer goal was between $400-$500 USD.

That seems like a completely flawed system. The local staff gets no benefit from all the online sales, but get hit with a penalty on returns? This is perhaps why, in the U.S. at least, they have moved to a "final sale" approach, to prevent people from returning large quantities of items.

By the way, does anyone know what SuitSupply does with returns of custom made items? Do they leave enough allowances, to reconfigure it for a regular sale?
In the US, we never got hit with penalty on items purchased online that were returned in-store. But US employees do earn commission (not the most rewarding system, first $20k in sales of the month there's no commission), so that would be extremely unfair if they were hit with a penalty.

Thanks for sharing! This was in the end of 2019 for me and also in Europe! Glad to see there’s some buffer for you guys!

Am I late to the party, or did they recently add an Extended Length option for custom made coats on the website? They add an additional 25cm for $25.

I ordered 2 women's jackets pretty much a week ago come tomorrow and a pair of gray flannel trousers and nothing yet. Yet, my first order came in within 2 days. I'm getting a little frustrated to be honest. I don't care if they cancel my trousers but really want the jackets for my wife. They were also very quick to take their money so...

Speaking of that white alpaca Jort....

How does one keep it clean? I can just imagine that the butt of your suit would just get dirty and discolored from just sitting in chairs and stuff. Or does it resist soiling pretty well.
Still debating on keeping my off white jort alpaca. Can anyone share their experiences with it?

Superb, feels wonderful, warm, but gets dirty somehow even if you just sit in your office 😂 I advise to keep it.
