Interested to know how went my first Fansplusfriend order ever? Well read that post if you wanna know more about their service, time delay and the actual product!
For months, and I must say, years I've been drooling over Fanplusfriend website, but for some reason I was always wondering why the hell most of their clothes were so cheaply priced compared to real brands, and I always thought their prices seemed too low compared to the quality of their clothing shown on their website, weird I know, but a lot of the stuff in the website look actually BETTER than what I've seen made by big brands, and they sell it like 3 times less the price O___O !! So I thought something might be fishy ..... Sometime you think that the more you pay, the better the product will be, so that's why I've stick to purchase brand only. But, I've always wanted to own a gorgeous stylish aristo coat that would fit me well, so I decided to give it a try!!!
So here's the thing, I went to their website, created myself an account there ( took 1 minutes to do ) then purchased this coat of doom:
I picked the black one, and I gave my exact measurements. I paid right away with Paypal, and attached my measurements in the note, I filled every single size requirements in this page: http://store01.prostores.com/fanplusfriend/size/measurement_info.htm and did not left any extra inches or whatever, just my exact measurements!
So, I paid on August 22, ( cost me $31 US in shipping for UPS, which is not too bad ) they then sent me an order confirmation email and told me it would takes about 3~5 days to sew, and they would give me a tracking number once it's on the way.
So 5 days later, they told me the item was shipped and gave me the tracking number of doom!
*was all excited* I thought it would take waaaay more time to make the coat O.o
SO, the coat arrived today, on August 31 ( so it only took 9 days from the day I paid and the package to arrive ! ) by UPS, NO CUSTOMS !!!!!!!!! OMG they even wrote "Clothes SAMPLE, NO COMMERCIAL VALUE" on it !!!!!!!!!!!! now THAT is neat, I live in Canada and post Canada usually LOVES to RAPE me with outrageous customs !!!
So, the whole thing was really well packed, and the coat was in a waterproof plastic sleeve thingy, and then ...... here was the coat !!! :
HOLLY CRAP I LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the measurements were *P.E.R.F.E.C.T* !!! <3
I'm quite short ( 4"11 -_- ) but I don't have a small frame ( I own boobs >.> ) but they managed to make the exact perfect shape to it, it's extremely flattering (((( note, the picture was taken from my 6 years old daughter lolllll ) They put that wonderful belt at the back so you can tight it more which makes it so flattering, once again! Absolutely EVERYTHING is perfect with this coat, the quality is just surprising, this is something I would have been ready to pay $250 for easily simply by the quality, the look an the perfect fitting, and I paid 124.99 for it ??!?!?!?!!??!
I'm so in love with Fanplusfriend now, I'm wondering why I paid ginormous amount of money on Meta for things that are absolutely overpriced compared to the quality XD ( don't get me wrong, Meta still own my heart and soul ) I'm like totally making a new list of the items I'll order next time ! O_o
SO, the conclusion:
Delay: 9 days from the payment to the reception in Canada
Communication: absolutely perfect, professional and friendly
Product size: PERFECT
Product quality: Hard to believe O_o
Additional comment: I'll so rape the hell outta all their coats, I need them all !! O_O
So, they simply get a 10/10 from me on that one!! At first when I placed my order, I thought it would be a little too "costume-ish" to wear it daily and would have used it only in special occasion, but now that I have it, it's absolutely wearable and unique, a perfect Autumn coat! ( it's pretty light too btw, not like their big bunny winter coat at all! )
So, my suggestions is, when you order from them just make sure to answer everything in their measurements page, and everything should be alright!!
Oh and if you were wondering, the Jabot and Wrist cuff came from Gentleman's Jabot on eBay:
I received the items this week too, the quality is really awesome, so is the service, and they have tons of gorgeous aristo accessories, I really recommend it!!
That's it! Hope you enjoyed the post XD And sorry for the cheesy pic lol !
