Hi fats -

Much apologies for a topic that I am sure has already been covered. I can't find any info in the tags about Evans. If you know where past posts are - please lead me there.

I live in the US and I recently saw my fellows fatshionista's post about Beth Ditto. Well the article featured her love of Evans apparently and so now I am intrigued. I normally don't tempt myself with overseas ordering because the shipping costs are killer. After perusing the website there are a LOT of items I love.

My questions are: Is it worth it? What are the quality equivalents in the States? What is the sizing like? As I understand - I am a size bigger in UK sizing right? Do you have favorite items from Evans?

Any info is so appreciated! And again - I'm sorry if all this has been covered. Kindly point me in the right direction and I won't need any responses. :)

I'm sympathetic since I want the spectator flats SO BADLY! However, after my first (and last) $$$$ overseas shoe ordering (and returning) experience (Duo), I do not think I'm going to risk ordering them.

I know weren't those shoes AMAZING? Most of the other items featured in the Beth Ditto article weren't really my style but there's something about that hoodie dress, the black dress and those incredible flats. They are calling out me!

Oooh, did you have a bad experience with duo? I've been lusting after their boots for about 7 months, but haven't ordered.

It wasnt disastrous, but the ones I ordered did not fit my foot well. I paid a good bit of money in postage to return them, but apparently I had scratched the sole of one boot (while trying them on briefly and indoors) and Duo was initially reluctant to refund my money! It all worked out ok in the end, but I didn't enjoy any part of that experience. Thus my hesitation persists even in the face of lovely spectator flats that match my mental image of a fantasy pair I've been looking for!

Good to know, thanks for sharing!

Not to go on and on, but I wanted to make it clear that I have nothing against Duo. They DO have strict policies on returns, but they have a wonderful selection and I *might* try again someday.
