[Stray Rats] – Discussion Thread

Jun 27, 2013 @ 00:40
my friend ordered a black coaches jacket last week and got it today. i've seen koopz numerous e-mails, hit him up on tumblr, hit him up on here as suggested, and today finally resorted to the lowest of low: instagram commenting him. if he can send out packages he can definitely respond to a simple message and ship something out. at this rate i'd be surprised if i ever even get the shorts and the tee i ordered recently. what a load of shit.
Saw your comments. Lowkey if he doesn't respond or do something, send a legit letter to his address and like spell it out to him. "I ordered my jacket on __________ and have sent emails, messages etc. Please ship my jacket or at least give me a refund you jackass!"

EDIT: lol jk be nice about it. koopz is actually a cool dude despite his shoddy customer service

Koopz is a humble dude, and you guys have to understand that shipping will vary from brand-to-brand (especially if they are run through SMALL operations). I have never had a serious problem with Dertbag nor Stray Rats, and I'm not just saying that because I live in Miami. Problems will happen, and some people might get the wrong end of the stick with some of the drops. These constant complaints will honestly solve nothing, and it won't take away from the fact that Stray Rats is still a very relevant and innovative streetwear brand.

To answer some questions:

- The Champion shorts have NO pockets and they fit true-to-size. These are more like gym shorts and NOT like basketball shorts (this is in reference to length). Size 28-30 waist go with a Small, size 30 go with a Medium, etc.
- The Madge L/S is true to size and fits close to the previously released L/S that launched at the end of 2012  
- You should allow 1-2 weeks for shipping with brands like this, nothing is guaranteed to come on time
- The prints still hold up very nicely with the recent tees that dropped (after a few good washes)

@cudiondat I don't think anyone in here really speaks negatively to koopz's character, we are all aware he's a good dude that runs an even better brand and always puts out innovative and solid designs.

Most people, from my observation, are annoyed by the lack of consistency. I fully understand he runs a one man brand and has plenty other commitments in life other than filling out packing slips and drawing rats on polymailers. What I've seen is that he can't be consistent and relatively reliable. @purveryor relayed that his homie ordered a week ago and already got his shit yet dude is still waiting after ordering his jacket 2 months ago. I know slip ups happen and whatnot but when someone is paying $64 shipped for a piece of nylon and polyester with some plastisol on it, I too would expect at least a mild level of customer service. It comes to the point that if koopz won't even respond to emails nor hears concerns/requests/criticisms, why even have an email or an ask button on tumblr. Although I have not been in the same situation, I empathize with anybody who has a -$64 on their bank statement yet nothing to show for it.

Wash it and then put it in the dryer by itself on very dry and it will shrink down to nearly a large. Thats what I do with all my tees, large is a lil too small so I buy XL's and just shrink em

If you dry it solo then it will shrink. Most companies say they are preshrunk but you can still shrink them more. I have experience doing this with SR tees and it works perfectly
