    Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic but thought I'd try to get the thread back on track...sort of. This RRL Twill Jersey Jacket just arrived from RL after a shipping misadventure. Fedex Home never received the first order and after a week of waiting RL CS had it sent again minus the grey chambray shirt which was OOS.

    This is what I originally asked JF to proxy and so I sent him a money order :)facepalm: #1) a couple of weeks ago. When the private sale hit I decided to order it myself instead of waiting for JF. I sent him more money :)facepalm: #2) to change my proxy to shoes. Now I'm with the others hoping to get my money back. Crossing my fingers it's quick as my funds aren't tied up with the PayPal fiasco nor a part of the RL repayment as nothing was ordered on my behalf.

    I never blamed anyone who is out $$$ here. You should demand your money back, and clear and prompt communication. This sucks for everyone who is out money, for sure. I am not absolving JF of responsibility just because I think some forumites have a blind spot to a bit of irony here. It sucks more if you were on a tight budget and went out on a limb and I get that, too. I hang out here and sometimes it seems like everyone is buying this stuff with Monopoly money and all own arsenals of cordovan and drive cars that run on Faberge eggs and bald eagle heads. But I understand this is real money to some of you, not trying to be flip.

    When I sent my PP to Jimmy Fingers I considered it a leap of faith. I half expected to get burned on the deal. When he and I talked, it became clear that he thought buying a bunch of shit on behalf of another internet stranger just to make a few bucks was also a leap of faith. So I transacted and it worked out. Had it not worked out, I might've grabbed a Bible and a rope and ran him through the Google machine but I would've stopped at least for a moment to consider the lack of judgment on my own part for sending off a pile of $$$ to a random alias in the first place just to save some $$$ on a fucking cardigan.

    Which fits me perfectly, I might add!

    I received my jeans ordered through Jimmy in a reasonably timely manner. I did send my payment as a real payment though, not a gift, and just added 4% for paypal. No way I was blindly trusting anyone asking for gift. Luckily it worked out for me.

    Also, someone report back when you email that Dr. Collectors guy. Those look awesome.

    Yeah, as long as you're talking to Dr.Collectors, ask if he has an actual visitable workshop. It'd make for an interesting article to cover here on SF.

    A novel idea would be to actually shop at the stores.

    For the forums info the RRL London store is due to open today.

    That's cool, if you stop in let us know how it is. I didn't realize RRL was that big in London.

    Just scanned the past few pages of this thread - it's not too difficult to get on RL's mailing list for friends and family sales... Just try to buy one or two items at full price from a store or online (preferably from a store). Make it a bigger ticket item so SAs notice you (it will pay for itself in discounts over time). Give them your e-mail address. Over the years I have been able to get two or three codes per sale (one hard copy, two by e-mail). Plus, often if you just walk into a retail store during the sale, they will give you the 40% off plus 15% kicker. RL sales are pretty predictable (late october/early november, May, the pink pony discounts, etc).

    Has anyone tried the RRL tailored stuff yet? It has a Boardwalk Empire vibe; looks a bit too costume-y to me, but some pieces look decent.
