Official Sisters Merch

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Hi, remember to check the paperwork if you ordered a sweatshirt ... I put below the message I sent to sandbag (I cannot insert my photo ...)

Hello,

I sent you a message this morning because I had not received my package, it arrived .... Thank you.

On the other hand, there is a big printing problem ... 1991 turns into 81 11 ...


https://the-sisters-of-mercy-uk.myshopi ... -exclusive

1991 being an "important" date for this band, I hope you didn't stock up on goods in advance ... If so, I believe you can throw it all away (unfortunately).

(81 11 doesn't mean anything ...)

What do you offer, a refund?

Thank you in advance for your attention to this request.

Have a good day,


(I am French speaking, my English is basic)

Well they're both significant anniversaries, and why should the 10th anniversary be more "important" than the 30th? :?
I received the same shirt, with (81-11 instead of 81-91). I'm not complaining as I only paid a tenner (+ postage) for it. My good friend Andrew S bought 3 of them! :lol:
They are probably keen to offload old stock and make room for the 40th anniversary merch. :wink: .
But I agree they should have made the different dates clear in the photos.

Hi Scardwel,

Thank you for your answer.

On the one sold it is written 1991 and not 81-91 ...

I could have understood the "error" or the change 81 - 11

It's totally different, isn't it?

I see this as an old t-shirt, for example for the 1991 tour or even the creation of "reptile house ltd" etc ... But not for an anniversary date.

Finally, anyway, it is not the merchandise presented on the site.

Are you saying you have a mis-printed shirt?
Have you got a photo?
If you have, here's how to insert images here

Hi Pista,

Normally, I got there ... If not, I can send it to you by email.

Instead of 1991 it is written 81-11.

This is not what is offered on the site ...

I notice that the writing on the sleeve is different too. Not visible in my photo, but the cuffs (seams) are different too ...

In short, as said above, I have the impression of having inherited the old model ...

Ah. Now I see what you mean.

Indeed, it's not what was advertised

Including 1st class mail it was £15 for me. But I ordered what I saw.
Although that's purely academic right now if the thing doesn't even show up.
Cheers.

I don't recall seeing that at the XXX show at the Poly, but fire-eaters, filmic delights, postcards and buns can be so distracting.

True. Must admit I didn't look closely enough. I just saw a cheap long sleeved shirt! It would have been nice to have the 1991 one again. Mine is lost somewhere in Finland! There's a post back log in the UK and I think parcels to Europe are being held up because of Brexit so it may be because of that it's gone astray this time. I'm holding of sending Abridged copies to Europe for now.

I figured maybe that was the reason and held off contacting them until now.
This will be the third item that went AWOL from them.
Cheers.

For me, it ends well:

Hello ,

Thank you for your email and apologies for any disappointment caused. Unfortunately, we are unable to swap the item to the one mentioned in your email as the one you hoped to have received is no longer available. However, we can confirm all the designs on this store are going to be reviewed in the New Year. Therefore, we suggest you re-visit the store at a latter time. In the meantime, we have processed a full refund on your account. Please keep the t-shirt, there is no need to return it.

Apologies once again for any inconvenience caused.

That's jolly decent of them.
And bad news for my wallet about a load of new designs.

They didn't have them in Leeds in 2011 but they appeared at the Roundhouse show later that year. They may have had them in Glasgow as well, but memory fails I'm afraid.

I got one in Dublin with the 81/11 print that year; likewise didn't see them in Leeds. I also did Glasgow that year but have no recollection of what was on offer there.
