Saw the IH Mountain Parka (21 oz denim) at Vater & Sohn this saturday. What an awesome Piece. I should have taken Pictures or tried it on, but a) that was impossible as I had to carry a Baby all the time and b) would have resulted in another jacket purchase and me being divorced.

A couple of friends are Nigerian, and I can ask them if there's anything you need to know.

We "needed" a new tv for our living room, so Julie found a good deal on one at Target.  Since it's, um, large, we opted for the free delivery.  Target subcontracted delivery to a company called EFW.  EFW sent us an email, describing delivery procedure and setting a delivery date- December 10 at 6 pm.

They didn't show up.  We called the phone number and a message said the office was closed, due to inclement weather, and it then hung up.

Yesterday, Julie called again.  This time, the message informed her that she was 281 in the call waiting queue, and since she has a life, she decided not to wait. (Still no delivery, obviously)

Today, Julie called Target, who informed her that (as far as they know) EFW is still closed, due to extreme weather, and that they don't know when we will receive our delivery.

I have no idea where in the US the weather is so bad that businesses have been closed all week, though it certainly isn't here in Texas.  I'm beginning to suspect that someone got a truckload of flat screen tvs for Christmas.

I'm also beginning to suspect that someone at Target better update their resume, because this does not look good for them...

Remember the Target data breach in 2013? Gregg Steinhafel got a fat severance package for that cluster f*ck. Unlikely heads will roll over undelivered tv's. I'd demand a refund

@Chris We had a similar issue with Best Buy involving delivery of a washer and dryer. We ended up getting a nice percentage back of our purchase...hoping you get the same

I was just basically wondering of it is a dangerous place to go to. I have a meeting with the company Monday and I guess I can ask them.

I'd check with the US State Department about travel advisories and current political climate

Anyone tried Mack Weldon tech cashmere? I got a set on the way. I know their 18 hour knit underwear is pretty great. It feels pretty luxurious under a pair of Iron Heart jeans... 

I was happy to see they shipped my order within one hour of ordering. I like the navy heather color too.
