Sartorial Bucket List # 6 : Tan Leather Gloves

February 24, 2011

This post is long overdue but I finally got some pictures taken of my new gloves.

I ordered these a little under a month ago during the 50% off sale at Talbots and am more than happy about the quality of the gloves I received.

The only complaint I have is about the service. When I ordered these by phone the sales associate told me that these gloves were on promotion for 50% off but they aren't on "sale." So literally two days after I received the gloves the prices went down another 20%, I asked bf to help me price adjust them...since they weren't on sale I just figured it was be an easy transaction. But the bf hit a wall with a stone cold sales associate who told him that they don't price adjust on sale items...even after he explained to them (under my tutelage) that it was on promotion and not on sale. The sales associate insisted that he was wrong. So no price adjustment. 

Other than mediocre service at that particular Talbots I am really happy with the packaging and the gloves I received. It came really well wrapped in a big box and gloves were exactly what I was looking for.

I included the receipt which has the style number you can use to call stores and have the gloves ordered and sent to you. I believe the price has gone down significantly since my order so now's a good time to get them if you are looking for longer gloves. The size S I am wearing is the smallest size available and it's only a few inches big in the arm but they don't slip down on me so that's all I can ask.

Comes in black and gray (there may be other colors but I don't remember).

    Have you thought about taking the receipt on your next trip to a mall where Talbot's located and ask if they can price adjust it there? I know there's a store at West Farm's mall in west hartford. It may be a drive for you depending on where you live.
