    Anyone Dealt with Pipe Band Uiforms.com?

    Has anyone dealt with a Pakistani company called Pipe Band Uniforms.com? Their website is http://pipebanduniform.com
    They have very reasonable prices and claim to supply most of the dealers. They have a wide range of products, but I hesitate to dive in without hearing from someone who has bought from them.
    Let me know if you know anything about them - good or bad.
    Thanks

    I'll start by saying that I know NOTHING of the company personally.

    However, I'm automatically suspect for two reasons.
    1) no prices. The "contact us and we'll tell you how much it costs" thing doesn't fly with me.

    2) their payment methods. Wire transfer or Western Union...? Those are the two WORST payment types in the world to try and re-coup your money from if something goes pancake-shaped.

    Again, I don't know anything about the company, they might be great... I still wouldn't order from them for the two reasons above.

    Please bear in mind-The horror stories with dealing with these Pakistani companies are horrendous. If you absolutely must buy an item from Pakistan, I would recommend Geofreys. I know scores of people who have ordered things from them with no problem at all. They are an eBay powerhouse, and its a good bet that all those products this company is selling, they buy from Geofreys. Don't count out western vendors either...;-)

    ...why is this in Historical Highland Attire? Not to be a pain, but just asking! You may have better luck in the General Kilt Talk section than you would here.

    Agreed! This thread ought to be moved....
