UPDATE: Due to a misunderstanding, this has been fully resolved

I purchased a tie from Viola Milano in early March. Obviously, delivery got derailed by the pandemic, but Viola Milano’s customer service has been terrible since they re-opened. Over the last month, they have come up with different excuses on why they haven’t shipped the tie and have repeatedly claimed they will ship out the tie express the next day. They’ve now gone silent for days after my latest email politely asking for the status and a tracking number after their latest promise to ship express the following day with an emailed tracking number. I’ve filed a ”did not receive” claim with PayPal and will hopefully get a refund soon, but wanted to make members aware of the sketchy and poor customer service of VM. They offer some great fabric designs, but so do the vast majority of other well regarded tie makers that also excellent customer service.

I don't want an apology, I just want a refund. Of course I completely understand delays given the situation across the world, but it's inexcusable to keep misleading a customer and never ship the product. Buyer beware.

UPDATE: As some others have noted, Viola Milano has a new customer service team, and they went above and beyond in reaching out to me and asking for another chance to earn their business. My latest order went very smoothly and shipped out within a day. I'm glad they’ve addressed their customer service because they have a very solid selection of tie fabrics.

Hi IlyaK, Very curios if you got your tie in the end and how much the delay turend out? I've ordered a (bespoke) tie 7 weeks ago and I really hope they solved there delivery issues :). I don't mind waiting (is that not what classic mens wear is about, patience) as long as kind of clear how long. I don't like the feeling not knowing if something arrives and the urge needing to chase after an order.

Hello forum readers, I can absolutely confirm the very bad experience. I am waiting months now for the order to be completed. They have sent a parcial deliver in the meantime, probably to keep me quiet for a while, but the service is really the worst I have ever experienced. Many mails (you can only contact them by mail) are being ignored. First the same lies as above, then no info at all. Never again

I can confirm also it is a bad experience. When he ships the products it is usually weeks or months after the order was placed. Sometimes he doesn't even ship and does not respond to emails. And when he does reply, it is some fake excuse. So buyer beware...So save yourself the headache.

One order I recieved fast, but the next order, on a shirt that was "in stock" before I ordered never arrived to me. I was never sent a tracking link, it was I who always had to contact VM. It took 2 months for a refund of the money and many e-mails. Some were replied to and some was ignored.

It is a shame since VM could have been so much better...
