I've bought a couple jackets from there before and they're not fake. It's all little kids that work there tho. I fucking hate how the stores don't hang up their shirts and fold them for you to see. It's annoying to have to pickup every shirt to see what it looks like.

^ I hate little kids who have to pick up every fucking t-shirt in order to see how it looks like, and then just leave the mess there. Hanging doesn't change things, people still take the shirts off the hangers, hang them in the wrong section or leave them lying around.

^ WTF how else are people supposed to look at the t-shirts then? Obviously people who want to buy tees want to know what design is on it / how it looks. It's the STORES job to re-fold the tees and put them back their respective pile(s) why would the customers be the ones folding and putting the tees back in order.

Hanging helps in my opinion. Take El Kartel on robson, theres never a mess when i go shop around there. Why? because all their shit is on hangers, people jus slide the tees down to check out the designs yeah theres the occasional douche that takes them off and messes shit up but the mess is small as opposed to the gigantic pile that accumulates in the stores that fold their tees and stack them up.

EDIT: Yeah i was thinking that, min.tee must work or has worked in retail.

it's not just little kids. it's customers. and yeah if you work there and want to keep getting that paycheck, you better hope people are in the store messing it up and giving you something to do. otherwise, find a new line of work

That's what the sales associates get paid for - fold.

The people who work there know nothing about the merchandise. They give me bull shit info on the jeans and I just correct them. Their reply "oh, that was last season. It's [insert wrong info] this season." I lol'd.

I judge stores by their customer service, been through that store a few times and have never received a word from the sales associate.

you'd love mantique then - their sales associates don't leave customers alone.

^ thats what I thought too when I first stepped into that store.

Im not sure if $400 for a pair of jeans is the norm. but yeah..I just quickly walked out afterwards, cuz its definately not the kind of place I can afford to shop at right now.

It looks good from the outside, but once you step in, the jackets look like crap, the shirts/jeans are priced, and does customer service even exist in that store? Out of 4-5 times i went in that store to check out if they have any new stuff, never once did i see people paying at the till.

I agree. They used to have nice stuff, but everytime I go in there it's like blegh.

Anyhow, I discovered UNDERGROUND just this week after wandering around metrotown this week. I was quite impressed with the store's layout, selection, and staff. The staff was pretty helpful, and they did the standard greeting. Nice of them to have a good collection of Diesel stuff, since most stores usally only have a handful of random stuff by Diesel.
