“Summer sandals quality”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by swKirkpatrick65 (1 review written)

I've just bought a pair of half-price Strider sandals and paid £12.50; they were originally £25.00. They are of shocking quality and of course made in China! The connections on the sole to the strap area don't even fit the hole they are meant to go in. These sandals must have cost Cotton Traders £2.00 if not less considering they buy in bulk. They're the cheapest tackiest sandals I've seen in a long time. My advice to buyers.......don't bother… Read Full Review

“Quality & Customer call centre very poor”

Written on: 19/06/2014 by AmyaBell249 (1 review written)

I have bought over 30 short sleeve shirts which looked great and comfortable, after wearing them over 5 separate holidays, they have frayed on the seams & button holes. The material as gone like Muslin ( very loose cotton cleaning cloths) very loose threads that have no strength. Contacting Cotton Traders direct to ask for e-mail address ( to send photos to them of a problem) and they say they do not have an email address, the call centre will Not help the customer to help them! The call… Read Full Review

“LOST DELIVERY”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by T200SHE (1 review written)

I would like to point out how disappointed I am with the service. I placed my order on the 25th May, had to contact them on the 2nd June to chase the order up because I had been told by email that it had been despatched, and then had to contact them again on the 5th June because there was still no sign of my order. The explanation that my order had been lost somewhere along the line with the courier only fuelled the unhappiness that I felt with the company even more. A courier losing orders… Read Full Review

“Skimping on quality and size”

Written on: 02/06/2014 by t1ger27 (1 review written)

Having used Cotton Traders for some years for short sleeve rugby style shirts, I've noticed a gradual deterioration in quality of material and inconsistence in sizing. Shirts sized XL that I bought a few years ago and still fit me are equal in dimension to more recent 2 or even 3XL. In addition, as the chest measurement increases the length only increases marginally. Where are all these barrell chested dwarves? Also, this year they seem to only be doing shirts with a Guiness or Help for Heroes… Read Full Review

“Poor delivery service”

Written on: 15/05/2014 by pqChandler332 (1 review written)

Cotton Traders - Good product range and good sizes for larger people, however they have the worst ever delivery service I have experienced. Up to 10 days for a delivery of a product that is in stock. Not good. Would not recommend if you are in a hurry… Read Full Review

“Be warned: Do not use Cotton Trader's mail order service!”

Written on: 03/05/2014

I have tried to contact Cotton Traders by email to voice my disappointment in their mail order service as I believe any business or company should be allowed the chance to put things right before criticizing them in a review. Their website states "If you still need to contact us after you have asked a question on our Help pages simply click on the CONTACT button at the bottom of the relevant Help page to e-mail our friendly Customer Care Team." but there was no email address anywhere on their… Read Full Review

Drummond2Drew's Comment

Written on: 15/05/2014

I must agree with your comments. I have one item to return but find I have to print off a return form for Hermes stating parcel size etc. I have shopped online for years and used Cotton Traders in the past but never had to experience this sort of mucking about before. I wanted to email complaint but nowhere is there an email address. What are they afraid of. I don't know of any other mail order company that deals with returns in this way. In fact not sure what I am going to do about it yet. I know one thing I will not be using Cotton Traders again.

“Very poor quality jeans from Cotton Traders”

Written on: 02/02/2014

I bought a pair of Cotton Traders jeans at a garden centre 300 miles from where I live. Couldn't try them on but bought them anyway because the company sounds reputable. When I got home and tried them on, the jeans turned out to be total junk. The shape and fit are poor and the stitching in the pockets came away. These are the cheapest, nastiest jeans I've ever bought, but they had a mid range price. I can't take them back because the shop is 300 miles away. I can't email Cotton Traders because… Read Full Review

“Boots unfit for purpose”

Written on: 02/01/2014

I bought a pair of black leather buckle boots in the sale which are totally unfit for the purpose. They let in water the first time I wore them. Why make boots which let in water. I have shopped with Cotton Traders for years now but sorry this will be the last. I feel that goods and services have been deteriorating for a while now. There are many other retailers who will welcome my money and provide quality goods… Read Full Review

“Account Changes”

Written on: 27/12/2013

I tried to change my account payment details. Absolutely hopeless. The system is flawed. There is no help whatsoever. Trying to contact somebody is harder than finding Lord Lucan!. Wanted to purchase a jumper for my wife, but looks like I will have to look elsewhere. Now discovered why they keep delivering catalogues. Nobody is buying from them! And cancelling the registration is another story. My advise - 'barge and pole' spring to mind!… Read Full Review

“Leaking Shoes Great Service”

Written on: 27/11/2013 by Chas17 (1 review written)

9 months ago I bought a pair of classic waterproof shoes. I wore them almost every day for a couple of hour when walking the dog on the beach. They were really comfortable from day one and until they started leaking recently had no problems. The underside had split from the heel to the arch - looked like a failure between two different materials. Phoned the company who immediately offered a refund or replacement in the New Year when more stock arrived and asked that I returned the defective… Read Full Review

“postal charge for returning goods”

Written on: 13/11/2013

My husband has shopped at Cotton Traders outlets for years and sizing has normally been good. However as the outlets didn't have any of the t shirts he normally buys, he decided to order online. Never again. Sizing was completely different to that of the tops sold in outlets and when I rang to complain and to ask why we should pay to return them as it was not our fault that the 2xl t shirts were at least 2inches narrower than those in the outlet they were adamant that we would have to pay it… Read Full Review

“Postage rip off”

Written on: 29/08/2013

Ordered white shoes from website - £4 postage - when they arrived they are more a cream colour to return them would cost another £4. Decided to keep them and cut my losses, now I know why they only have outlet stores - send out rubbish knowing full well that costumers will be reluctant to waste money on postage but lesson learnt will not shop with them again… Read Full Review

Great Quality, Great Prices, excellent people. I regularly shop online, instore and through mail order and have never had a problem, neither have any of my friends or any of their friends. yes, there are delivery and return charges, but most companies charge. Some of these people need to get of their high horse. Cotton Traders offer high quality clothing at cheap prices, and some people are expecting to get amazing quality t-shirts at £7 a pop. no. people cant expect that Customer service… Read Full Review

“Rip off postage charges”

Written on: 19/07/2013

Ordered and paid for a pair of shoes, prompt arrival, but at least a size too small and narrow. Decided not to re-order in case the replacement was also a bad fit. Returned them the same day expecting to be refunded promptly, not so. Telephoned to ask when my money would be returned only to be informed by a brusque service advisor that the shoes had not been received in the ware house and I would have to get in touch with the courier as it was not their responsibility. The courier confirmed… Read Full Review
