Most likely it is coming from their Italian warehouse, and will be delivered via DHL. Normal turnaround is 4-5 days

It usually says from one of our other facilitys though, and it hasn't even prossesed yet, let alone shipped Puzzled

Probably just delayed because of the busy cyber weekend [fingers crossed]

Mr.P sale seems on. Once you put an item in your basket you see the reduction!

Matches seems much more on the ball than Mr.P! They do not try to fool you with adding old clearance stuff to seasonal sales with higher prices. Also the delivery service is much better in London, they use Addison Lee. Since before Covid started whenever I ordered something from Mr.P for evening delivery they messed it up ( at least 6 times ) I gave up after that ! Their staffing levels must be very low too!.

Matches customer service is very good. Especially the returns; they are super easy to book for DHL etc. Plus the packaging and experience is much better in general. It feels like a company that didn't lose what made it special once it got VC backing, unlike some, e.g. END, Mr P etc.

Venture Capital, even though in the phase of those companies is just more tradition Private Equity, rather than VC.

Anyway, imo that might be true for End, but I reckon for MrP should be something else the issue, possibly a shift in strategy since Richemont acquisition?

Yes true, apologies, I get the two mixed up. I think with Mr P it was when it merged with Yoox, as it became more inclined to hold on to old stock and resell it for random prices.

End has definitely lost itself. Fair play to the owners though for getting to where they are.

I think for what was a small shop in Newcastle (iirc), end has done unbelievably well.

They smashed a fortune in when Lyle & Scott knitwear became the weapon of choice for the man in the street.

Ordered something that arrived on the 12th. It's damaged. 16 days later Mr P are still "investigating". Whatever that means. Hopeless. Laughing out loud .
