I got fed up with Boden after they kept sending me shouty emails that sounded to me like... (my name) you're a tough nut to crack, why don't you buy our clothes? We've put them all in the sale so they're cheap enough even for sad, tasteless poor people like you. What's wrong with you? Lovely to get in your inbox when you crawl to your desk first thing in the morning!
Queefer, Boden have a excellent customer service, give them a call. I had a top disintegrate on me, and my rain mac bottoms all popped off and both were replaced - infect I only expected new buttons for the mac! And I received a gift voucher!
My parcels of Autumn preview things arrived today (sydney) and I am thrilled with all of my dresses! Honestly, you English girls don't know how lucky you are if you think Boden is expensive and not top quality- I am always impressed with the tailoring and little details like contrast piping in the linings etc. Similar items would be twice the price here, and not such a range of bright prints and patterns. The only trouble is that it is 24 degrees here today, so I can't wear my new trench coat but at least all of my new dresses except for a corduroy tunic have short sleeves so I can wear them for spring.
Has anyone else ordered the velvet straight legs? I'm a fairly curvy 14L and don't know whether they'll flatter. £65 whittles down to £58 with the 10% discount, maybe I'll wait for the 20% which will inevitably appear in the next few months.
I'm coveting some Gap straight leg berry cords I saw in The Sunday Times Style mag a couple of weeks ago; nothing on their website though - sigh!
I've seen lods of stuff i like in the autumn brochure too but after having to send back 2 summer dresses as the fabric was cheap and nasty and the colours not as per the book I'm put off ordering too. such a shame.
was: They look great, I couldn't see them in any of the London stores a couple of weeks ago but in the name of fashion I'll get my ass up to Regent Street on Tuesday to see whether they're in.
