As I wrote about it here, I was really pleased with Beyond Retro at the first time so I had to order some more things. And they didn’t disappoint the second time either. I’m telling you this is the best way to buy second hand ever.
This time I ordered two more jeans (one pair of Wrangler and Lee), a denim short and a t-shirt. And ok, lets speak about this t-shirt first as it steals the show immediately I guess.
What can I say I’m a big child who cannot say no a t-shirt like this. I mean how cool is it? It could be an early pearl of the Star Wars franchise when it was still belonged to George Lucas. I can say you can’t go wrong with a simple t-shirt size wise but that’s pretty obvious I guess, but the material could’ve been a letdown so it’s always worth to read the description. But this tee couldn’t get any better, it’s soft like a baby’s butt.
And the jeans, OMG these jeans. Actually they have the same perrrfect cut as the other ones but they’re lighter in color and shorter too so I don’t have to think about what should I do with the hems. The fade and color is perfect and they couldn’t be in better shape. Total jackpot again.
I ordered this denim short mainly because it was on sale and I saw that they’re pretty long but I thought there’s nothing I can’t fix with a pair of scissors if the fit is right. And the fit has to be right because of that same mom fit what my jeans have too. But guess what, I like it even more with this longer length and proper hems. It looks more serious if you know what I mean.
And finally the other jeans which I ordered because I was curious of them as they are a bit different. They are Wrangler and have wider legs than the Lee ones. Also they were darker too. This time they had pockets on the back too but I still did’t like them so these ones were the only thing which eventually sent back.
Overall this second order was a big success too and I can recommend to anybody to try it. BTW if you’re interested how the return and refund goes. I sent my first parcel back more than a week ago with Collect+ and they delivered it on last Wednesday or so. Now I’m waiting for my refund and according to their site it could take 7 working days from the day the got the stuff. So I guess I’ll get it back by this Friday which would mean 2 weeks overall.
Oh, and it seems Collect+ has something problem with the second return so I had to call them today and I wrote an e-mail to Beyond Retro’s Customer Service too, but it seems now they will solve it together.
So yes, there could be little flaws in the system but overall it’s worth the shot. And now I’m thinking on summer dresses and jumpsuits and even more tees…
What do you think? Do you have experience with them?
