Thickcrust Consumer Protection Alert

If you have been reading my blog, you know that I traveled to India in September. When I was there, I was taken - against my will - to a tourist-trap shopping center named Delhi Haat Craft Cottage Industries. I wasn't happy that my driver did this, but I changed my mind after I learned that this place would make custom shirts for me.

I didn't even want to donate this shirt to charity, it was so horribly made.

Due to the timing of my visit, I didn't have time to try on the shirts I bought until I returned to the US. The shirts were, without a doubt, the worst fitting shirts I have ever put on. I would have felt ripped off had I paid $5 per shirt.

I'm not going to describe all of the ways that the shirts were shoddy. I'm just going to move on after issuing this warning: If you ever travel to Delhi and you find yourself at Delhi Haat Craft Cottage Industries, do not buy any custom made clothes.

And I'm going to take this opportunity to also get over the fact that the proprietor of The UPS Store in Lake City, Georgia treated me like a total prick. If you're ever in the unenviable position of being in Lake City, you can make your time there a little less miserable by avoiding this guy and his overpriced little store.

Adam, If you would have purchased your shirts at Jack's they would have fit you!

Since Jack's was more than 7,000 miles away at the time, I had to shop elsewhere. I think the place I had the shirts made was the Indian outpost of NY Collection.
