I’ve already written a one star review with pictures for this coat, but for some reason it did not post (very sketchy). So I’m just doing a test to see if it will post my negative review if I leave five stars.
Once again I’ve received a flawed item. Immediately upon receiving it I could tell that it was an item that was returned or had already been used as it was not folded properly in the packaging nor did it have the usual labels on the packaging. I took the the jacket out and immediately noticed that it was fuzzy all over. I thought it was covered in lint but it seems to be just the way the fabric wears. I went back to look at the modeled photos and I can see little fuzzy parts if I zoom in but nothing like it is on the one I received. The second thing I noticed was a small (really small, but still) stain on the sewn in tag. Not a big deal alone, but being a perfectionist I like my purchases to be in pristine condition when I receive them. Also the pockets were not sewn shut (hence another reason I know that I paid the new price for a used item), and there’s some blue shit around one of the pockets (it looks like pen or marker). This is the third time that I’ve received something so noticeably used (twice I’ve received items with deodorant stains). However, I feel like I’m forced to just deal with it because a recent prior experience with returning a defective item for an exchange. I felt a zipper was defective they didn’t so they wouldn’t exchange it. And it’s sold out anyway.
As much as I STAN this brand and what they stand for this just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I was SO excited for this coat and literally felt like crying when I opened it (shallow, I know). I’m sure it got overlooked in the holiday rush but it’s still upsetting for me at this price point to have less than perfection. Oh well, c’est la vie!
