    Impact of COVID-19 on Dappered

    Curious, and my apologies if the wrong avenue, but I am wondering how the recent illness has impacted most of our day-to-days with regards to being dappered. I know it has impacted my shopping. I could use some new items (long sleeve t's as I mentioned in another thread is one example) but am hesitant to pull the trigger with all the unknowns.

    Are you all still proceeding on as normal? Changing your habits? I find myself washing our stuff a bit more than normal which I am sure will impact the longevity but with the little one still going to daycare I am cautious.

    It seems a lot of us will or have moved into telework. For those that don't do it often has that changed your approach? I am telework now probably for a few weeks.

    I live in one of the CA bay area counties that is under a shelter in place order. I actually had decided to keep my kids home from day care the day before the order was issued so I was a little more prepared than my coworkers. I'm working part time (in the morning before kids are up) and watching my kids the rest of the day.

    In terms of dappered relevant changes? I have a couple pairs of Levis I want to return that I'm probably going to get stuck with. Honestly that's the least of my worries.

    I would encourage everyone to social distance as much as you can.

    It has delayed a couple of returns, thats about it. Maybe curbed a little bit of leisure shopping, which I need to do less of anyway. I work form home already so my daily wardrobe is the same as it has been.

    I haven't gone shopping in-person at all other than for groceries and other necessities. (Which isn't that unusual for me as I tend to be a bit of a binge shopper - buy a bunch of stuff all at once, and then not buy stuff for a while.) I have not purchased anything online. I have something I need to return to Brooks Brothers that I have hesitated to bring to the Fedex store, although really the sooner I get it done the better. I have a new jacket I need to get tailored but I'm just going to hang onto it for now.

    Well over a week ago, while coronavirus still felt kind of like a faraway thing, I placed a pretty significant order from Spier & Mackay. It is still in "processing" status and they have not responded to my email about it. I get that maybe they are reducing workforce or something but if they're not going to process my order they should just cancel it and refund me.... I am starting to get kind of pissed.

    Ditto. I ordered a few things early last week from various places (nothing from S&M) in the hope that I did it early enough not to be affected. However, none of those items have shipped. I understand everyone is in uncharted waters at the moment, but if you aren't going to ship my items then don't take orders and process payments.

    It makes me appreciate those businesses that don't actually charge you until they ship your items.

    Like, I wouldn't GAF if my order just didn't go through under the current circumstances, that is totally understandable. But I'ma be pissed if you took my money and then don't even respond to my requests for information, let alone ship me the stuff I paid for.

    Good thing I used a credit card, I'm going to calendar my charge-back deadline right now.

    i actually get to dress stylishly for once because we've been ordered to telework, so shaving and the uniform have taken a brief hiatus.

    I had scheduled an appointment at Alton Lane to replace a couple dress shirts on their way out of my closet, for tomorrow, and did hear from them that as long as I don't bring anyone along (minimal person-to-person contact) they're keeping appointments. I'm sure there will be plenty of handwashing occuring before/during/after of course. And I'm okay with that.

    No word on whether they'll still be offering a finger of bourbon to enjoy during the appointment.

    Been working remote for almost a week. Trying to keep my regular routine including clothes since I am often on video chat. No meetings in pajamas for me.

    I did place an order last Wed or Thurs with Spier & Mackay and received it yesterday. Hopefully anyone else who ordered will get theirs soon.

    FWIW I did finally get an email from S&M today, apparently my order is being shipped.

    I've been working at home for more than a year now--that reduced my number of "dappered" days already.

    And now we are doing client conferences by phone, so there is less face time.

    On top of that, courts in our area are starting to close, so I won't be going to court in the next few weeks.

    I still get dressed everyday, but it's very casual. Generally jeans, a polo or henley, and maybe a sweater.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?
