I really love the vintage style OXKnit products offer. I really like this sweater. But I think OXKnit has some work to do in terms of delivery of service. First of all, I ordered this nice army green sweater you see here, but that's not what I received. I got the version of this sweater in black. It's nice in black too, so I kept it and ordered another one in green. I will find out if I will finally get the green version when the order arrives. Supposedly that will happen today.
But this brings me to another point about OXKnit. They ship their products from China, which probably has something to do with their ability to offer them for such reasonable prices. This makes the shipping process very slow. That 7-16 window is preceded by a sometimes-lengthy prep phase--and not just when certain items are out of stock, which is usually the reason they give. For example, I ordered a Men's Retro Style Green Knitted Long Sleeve shirt, and they shipped it quickly. That was November 14. Today is December 4. The shirt is still bouncing around in the mail somewhere. And the deplorable Chukou1 site has been remarkably vague about its whereabouts for most of the journey. Apparently it will arrive at some point in the next, I'm guessing, week. It's about a thirty-minute drive from me at present, being sorted by the folks at a USPS hub that has lost packages of mine on many previous occasions. Now, the follies of the USPS are not OXKnit's fault. But that they don't ship larger orders with a better international service for speedier delivery: that is. In a world where things like speed matter, this is something they should care more about. It makes for happier customers. Some of their products are available via Amazon.com; I would urge them to get as many products in as many styles as possible in warehouses that have services like Prime, however much I may detest Jeff Bezos for his union-busting, monopolizing, and ill-treatment of factory workers.
Bottom line: these products are lovely, and as a child of the 1970s, I love them; they're reasonably priced, they look great, what I have gotten from them is well-made and comfortable and fits nicely--these are, in short, good products. But an order place on November 14 should not be floating around in the mail on December 4--not in 2023 (almost 2024). And when I order an army green sweater, I should GET an army green sweater, not a black sweater in the same style. This is a really cool company. They just need to get their act together in some ways. Call this a four-plus star review for product quality, docked (and docked charitably) for the kinds of sorting and shipping issues I have recounted here.
