Clothing Musings

I am never ordering online from American Apparel again.

Angr

Last night I bought a dress from them, and was checking using Paypal.

On the final order confirmation page, I noticed the shipping address was incorrect and corrected it.

EDIT

Minutes later, I get a confirmation email with the olde, incorrect address.

Surprised, I immediately email customer service to fix this problem. (I couldn’t call ’cause calling service was closed for the night).

This morning, I wake up a shipping confirmation to the incorrect address.

AH!

I call up customer service, explain what happened, and was responded with, “we can’t do anything.”

American Apparel, go hire some engineers to fix this problem.

Seriouzly.

Now, I’m out $50, and not getting anything >=[

Once upon a time I owned many woot shirts. They fit great, were 100% cotton, and had delightful designs.

However, over time, each one suffered the plague of gaping mystery holes that cropped up on the bottom.

Last month, I finally tossed these threadbare treasures. It was a rough, nostalgic parting, but I figured I should start my new life in New York with some less raggedy wear.

Replenishing the shirt supply has been a slow process, since I feel too olde for woot.

However, recently, as luck would have it, I found awesome shirts!

Once was a nice blue cotton blend with a half-zippered pocket and another was a stripped pure cotton with buttons on the side.

I really like ’em and hope to find more like these. They are the beginning of a new shirt era.
