Two attempts and now I quit
I first ordered two of these robes through Tog Shop but they wouldn't honor their advertised special so I sent the robes back to them, unopened. It wasn't worth arguing with them about their sale.
I then ordered a Large robe from Appleseed's. When it arrived, it was clear it was mismarked as it was much too small for me. I called and a lovely lady in customer service told me to send it back and she would send me another robe that would surely be a Large. She honored the sale price under which I had purchased the first robe.
The robe arrived this morning and it is too small for me. It's probably a Medium. Oddly, I have three robes from Appleseeds in my possession, a Sapphire and two red, that I have bought in the past. They all have the same style number on them that this one that arrived today has on it: 76915. It would appear that the new vendor who's making these robes for Appleseeds - and charging us more money for - has had a problem with the sizing.
I shall stick with the three robes I already have, being very careful of the zippers, which are very fragile, and hope that someone outside the Orchard Stores, starts to offer velour robes in the future.
In the meantime, make sure they double-check the size of the robe you're getting so you won't have to send it back - again and again and....
