As a generality, true. But it's certainly not universally true. Haven't purchased much from Peter Christian, but recall it arriving well within a week. And incredible as it may seem, I typically get something ordered from Herring within 48 hours!Almost anytime I've bought from the UK, it's like we've time warped backed to the Clipper Ship days and anything under a few months seems fast.
But then, we can contrast that to a Shipton and Heneage order that took over a month.
In fairness, perhaps I should have instead observed that it seems they don't wish to sell to anyone outside the UK. If I recall correctly, their confiscatory shipping charge applies to any such orders.This is what I’ve thought. Herring gets me shoes in a couple of days via DHL for £20. I’ve bought items from Chester Jeffries and Equus that, while they take a while, are a fraction of what Cordings wants for shipping.
