This is a question to buyers/people working behind the scenes of brands/designers. Iv been really curious lately of the process behind deliveries to stores. Say in London there are 2 stockists of Jil Sander.One gets their shipment in at a certain time and the other store doesnt get theres until maybe a month later. Dont they all place orders at the same time ? Another thing is stores saying ''oh yeah,its been shipped should be here next week'' .. yet it probably doesnt show up for another 3 weeks..Is the process of delivering clothing in bulk a lot longer than regular mail ? It seems when dealing with high end designers/labels the delivery process seems really erratic. PS:Mods if this is the wrong forum move it,I thought about putting it into careers/education but it didnt seem to suit it.
