The webstore is slightly temperamental but service is second to none.

Ordered an item and got it next day via DPD. Noticed it had been further reduced in price so bought another as a 'backup' at the new price - they then emailed me without being prompted to ask if the second purchase was due to a sales reduction and if so they would refund the difference and cancel my second order if I wished. They were able to confirm this via email on a Friday evening and refund done today.

Had to send something back to our legacy, but stupidly fucked up and never got it tracked Oops. It was posted on Friday, I've contacted them a couple of times and it's not surfaced.

Question 1. Should it have arrived by now? It says 3-5 working days. I know you can write the weekend off.

Question 2. Is it possible that the item has arrived, but just hasn't been processed? From experience, how quick do returns take?

Can anyone else recommend any stores in UK or EU stocking the similar brands to Alpha Shadows or Open As Usual?

how did you get on with this mate? good luck if you sent it with Postnord. simply the worst delivery service I have ever had the displeasure to experience.

It did turn up last week when I thought it was gone. Credit to Our Legacy, great customer service.

The guys at rivet and hide are ace, really friendly and helpful. Plus unlike a lot of stores nowadays, spend £50 and free next day delivery

Bought some Cordovan Alden from a retailer and the top layer started cracking / disintegrating after a few wears. I have a few pairs of cordovan shoes and have never seen this after years of wear.

Retailer has sent them to Alden and it has taken 6 weeks so far. This will be the fault of Alden though.



They have said the shoes will be 'refinished', and initially offered a discount of a future purchase for the inconvenience. I have said I want a discount on the price paid instead. What do fuker's think is reasonable, or am I better off just asking for a refund?

you paid a f#in high price for some shoes and you can't even wear them for more than 2 months…
high discount on the existing one if they fixed it or full refund ime.
no experience with stuff like this though, i can imagine that retailers are not realy accommodating with clothing?

They should be replacing them with a new pair or giving you a full refund - cracking like that is not on.

For comparison something very similar happened to
me with a pair of veja sneakers (I know not comparable as shoes) - I emailed them photos and they sent out a replacement pair as soon as I emailed them the return tracking info. For the price you paid you shouldn't be getting quality issues like that and should be getting better customer service in rectifying the problem
