    Anyone hear anything or order anything from Ian lately? I sent him a couple of e-mails with question regarding some shirts I wanted to order but I haven't received any replies. Little hesitant to place an order, now.

    Thanks!

    razl mentioned he order a pair of boots.

    I also ordered a pair of boots (exact same pair as Razl) 2 weeks ago, and a pair of Monks yesterday.

    The questions I had for the Boots were promptly answered and communication was great. I had no questions on the Monks.

    The Monks were sent today IIRC.

    Hi guys!
    I just wanted to publicly congratulate Ian for his amazing shop. I recently purchased a couple of items and I couldn't be happier with the products, the service and the extremely fast delivery (and they had to cross the Atlantic!).

    Yep - He responded right away, but he may be drowning in his new delivery of shirts...

    Also, as promised - thanks Ian!

    Without speaking for Ian - I have asked several times, and he has explained that his prices are the lowest they can go for everyone to be fair, so there are no discounts.

    Thanks for the replies. To be clear, wasnt suggesting that there ought to be a discount, but rather just checking pre-purchase since such offers have become common practice among some SF affiliate vendors.

    +10 . The first time I met him , i feared that he was going to "Biatch Slap" me for even mentioning the possibility of a discount. His prices are more than reasonable and the products amazing.

    I agree wholeheartedly that his prices, product, and service are all exceptional.

    it is interesting to me that his prices are the same at the webstore as on ebay, though. As a buyer I can get 2% back buying on ebay through ebay bucks, but I know he is paying them more than 2%. all 4 of my orders this year have been direct b/c it seems silly to make him pay ebay so I can get 2% off, but I do wonder if the ebay fees make the statemetns above a bit inconsistent. I'd think the costs associated with maintaining the website are more fixed than ebay fees.

    I just bought a great down vest from Ian at a very reasonable price. I felt like his shop deserved a bump.

    +1 on both statements. He is very firm about there being no discounts, but I just said, "hey, can't blame a guy for trying" and he was nice about it - it's not like he will get offended if you ask nicely once, but he is very clear in his response. Prices are as listed, no matter who you are and how much you buy.

    I think the prices are a little high and should offer a discount just to make us feel a little special.
