I’m not hugely fussed. It’s a neck warmer for running. But I’m not sure what type of 2 week+ investigation they are carrying out.

Give them a call and they'll sort it the same day (usually).

Got 30% off the sale price once I put some bits in basket, was 20% off on a few things as well.

Great shout. Just got an extra 20% off a Vis Lhamo without having to worry if would drop again in sale.

A bit of useless whining here but why did Mr Porter stop with linking to the other items in the outfit? Was such a good function and now it's gone for some reason. Couldn't be that hard to implement could it?

£60? Is that amount normal? I've never seen that much and think they've made a mistake (or mrporter have)

End do do that normally, but maybe only about 10/20 quid.

yeah that sounds about right, they have shop overheads to pay for, but not £60

It’s easily over £50+ sometimes. Seen it loads as I compare prices on both sites before buying as their new gear drops around the same day/time.

Proper jokers.

Much better fit than with END. but still surprised. Ironically their distribution seems to have become more mainstream since bringing it back in house from Noverre/Superdenim. Maybe as they have control they can set the terms better.

Quite a time collection, but have noticed the M-65 Liner. Could be one for later when the next 40% early access sale comes round! Laughing out loud

M65 is priced lower than the official store. Picked up the last small. too risky to wait till sale time

Yeah pretty surprised to find it there while browsing through new arrivals, but definitely a better fit than End.

Great for me as EU customer, albeit selection is pretty limited, in order to avoid custom fees and have hassle free returns. Pricing in € is exactly the same as on RMC website for the m-65 (625€ which is 537.5£)
