Is aspecto still open? They ate that up pretty quick

Recently added Footasylum to that list too but JD and SD are having a fight over it. Real like monopoly.

FA is already bad, they don't need SD or JD to make them worse.

All well worth supporting.

Really like Kafka’s patron scheme, think it’s a great idea.
Peggs are great too, really helpful with any queries and also friendly in person when I’ve been in.

Might make a thread listing out indie menswear shops - any interest? Would hate for more of them to die out - imagine Peggs with Cruise/18Montrose's website layout, and wouldn't want GH or Garbstore to die out even though I can count the number of things I've bought from them on one hand in past few years Laughing out loud

Do it.
Outsiders Store is an indie I think.
Their emails are really good, genuinely interesting content.

Good shout that Roophees.

I’m not sure on Outsiders - I think they’re something to do with Ellis Brigham? Unsure if that is indie or not though

Anyone had issues with Working Class Heroes before?

Obviously staffing is hard with COVID so I've been lenient, but seems a bit of a shambles? Wondering if that's usually the case.

Sent an item back to them 5 weeks ago with collectplus, 3 unsuccessful attempted deliveries and got returned to sender.
Then sent with Royal Mail (they claimed that was the only delivery getting through to them), which got delivered to them 3 weeks ago yesterday.

No sign of refund, and keep getting palmed off by their e-mail support who keep getting more vague with their estimate of how long the refund will take.

Their Google reviews don't seem too great even before the pandemic. I'd file a claim with your bank/PayPal.

Zoom. Awful. Will never ever use again.

Bought my son some Toys on 27th March. One item came about a week later the other never turned up. I emailed and they said it had been sent.

It gets to 27th April and I’m sent a link to review my buys. I fill it all in saying how shite the service was and I’d asked for a refund but no reply (Paypal payment not accepted so could only pay with debit card).

Couple of hours later I get an email saying the item had never been sent because they couldn’t find it and I’d be refunded.

Cheeky bastards.

Really recommend nobody orders with these. Worst experience I've had with any online store.

When I sent the item back 5 weeks ago, it was for an exchange.
Wrote on the return slip itself to send it to my billing address (home) as due to Corona I can't get to the original address (work).

Requested a refund by e-mail instead in the meantime because they've taken so long, which they confirmed, but wouldn't give me a date it'll be processed.

Just got a DPD e-mail out of the blue, they're sending the exchange to my office.
Fucking useless.

Just received a pair of Orslow painter jeans I'd bought off Markkt, size large so the waist fits but the length on them must be about 26… zero mention on Marrkt that they fit like childrens trousers, massive waste of time ordering. Not impressed
