Shopping!

Well I've been shopping around on "e" and I found this store once again, this "Soviet-power" place, and I was considering buying some patches and a jacket.
Maybe even a pair of boots since the ones at their store seem to be a little bit higher quality.
However.
Before I run off and spend hundreds on what could be trash I need your guy's opinion.

1) Are their coats real?
I have a feeling they might be fake, but either way it'll be warm for the Canadian winter. ;)

2) Are their patches real?
...Something about their patches that just doesnt sit well with me...

3) Is ANYTHING about them real?
I mean come on, surely their medals are real yes? :O

Thanks guys.

Re: Shopping!

I can for some reason not see your attachments, but I would strongly advice You NOT to buy from Soviet-Power. I have made business with them a few times and this last time was indeed the last time.

First they sent the wrong items, items badly needed, I had to pay them once again to get the correct stuff (because they demanded the faulty stuff was to be sent back before they would send the correct items).

Now, two months have passed and I still haven't got the correct items, they said this weekend that the financial crisis had forced Ukrpost to fire personell and in rage, a lot of packages had been stolen, including my shipment. Yeah, sure.

Re: Shopping!

Oh, that is pretty bad.
I noticed that attachments havent been showing for me either...its kinda weird.
But as for Soviet-Power I ordered once from there they sent me all the right stuff and it was pretty swift, but now Im a little sketchy.

Re: Shopping!

Well, here you go:

Hello Patrik,
I contacted my post office and they said that the gross of the packages was lost because we had postal strike because of the crisis - many people from post service were dismissed and in this mess your package was lost. To find the needed items I will need couple of days, and after I will send the second package again. Thank You very much for your patience and sorry for the delay.
Best Regards, **********************

> Because on that reciept, is the tracking number for ALL packages.

In September I ordered some items. One month later I got a shipment, but one item was wrong size, another was completely wrong and some insignias were missing. I did not get any reply for a week, then I was asked to send the faulty items back (which would have cost me about 100 USD). When I refused, I was asked to sent another 100 USD, keep the items and get a new batch. Well, having waited another month, I got the above. I can't recommend this seller to anyone.

Members, it appears as if the attachments issue was resolved. All posts made with attachments during the problem will have to be deleted, and re-attached.

Re: Shopping!

Hmm, this is odd, I've been hearing both sides, either a totally correct and fast shipped item(s) or a completely wrong and poor quality and poorly shipped item(s).
And if not these guys where can I find an overcoat such as this?

Well it is up to each and everyone to make his own decisions.

But, I can still not see what coat you are referring to?

Re: Shopping!

The patches were for my comment. Those patches are modern fakes, and not even accurate ones at that. If you want patches for it, just contact myself or centaur32 and we can sell you some of very little.
