First off, I know Matt has allot of friends on this site, and I also know he's had some good dealings with allot of you. This post however, has nothing to do with that, so save your breath if you want to 'slam' or 'ridicule' me because YOU had good dealings with him. I didn't. There's obviously more to this story, but I'll sum it up: I was one of the many who purchased one of his Russian Boar capes back in early June for $80. I kept seeing post's from Matt stating that HE shipped 'so and so's' cape, every Monday for a couple of weeks. I WAS NEVER ON ANY LIST. I asked him mid-July(and yes, still have ALL THE PM'S) if mine was shipped, and he simply stated that's he's been working allot out of town, and he'll get to it in the order in which they were purchased. I said OK. Early August - same story Mid-August "I'll get it mailed out soon, still turning/salting" End of August - Yep, you guessed it, same story.. Now here's the kicker: Got this on 9/9/10 "According to the guy who prepped these capes..All capes were shipped back in mid and late July. I am fleshing and salting more this weekend and will ship them out and make it good. 2 customers never received their capes. You and one other" Then this: Now HE'S THE ONE WHO SHIPPED THE CAPES, not the 'imaginary guy'??? "I let someone else flesh and box up and ship all of my capes due to my work schedule being changed. Since August, I...Ishipped them as he finished them when I was in from work. He was doing 2-3 each week. He said YOUR cape had been boxed and was one that I had already shipped." This was one of the last PM's "All Capes are test fitted on a McKenzie mannikin of the size they should fit and everything looked as if it would pull out. The great color of the cape should make up for any extra sewing that might need to be done." Don't think this will pull-out Matt... Again, there was MANY more conversations between Matt and I, but this is the short of it. So, Matt reluctantly sends me my cape, 3 MONTHS LATER, because it's somehow my fault that he 'forgot' about me, or this imaginary guy that suddenly appeared out of nowhere that was turning/salting capes for him, forgot about me. I took pic's of it salted to, just so this doesn't get blamed on my Krowtan. Was going to chalk it up as a loss, but this is FU%&ing ridiculous... and he told me that it's "repairable", and "I should feel good about getting a cape with such good color", LOL... If ANYONE can repair this, I'll send the GARBAGE to you for shipping costs.. Lastly, I've already had my pissing match with Matt, so don't intend to get into another. This is just to let ALL OF YOU know that there's another side to him, and I'm done buying/selling on this site for a LONG while..
