Has anyone tried this company?

Stylees.co.uk - Motorcycle & Leather Fashion Clothing Store - Motorcycle Jackets, Helmets, Biker Boots, Leather Pants & Chaps

It looks like one of the many sites you see selling fake items but I'm not certain. I usually follow the rule that if it's too good to be true, it usually is...and this is certainly very impressive! I spoke to someone on the chat help and they said the leather is 1.3mm to 1.5mm, they told me about the measurements and things like that...it all seems too professional for a company that is ripping you off.

I'm not convinced though! haha

Any help, anyone? Any past experience or thoughts?

Thanks!

It's probably fine as far as a fashion garment is concerned but I certainly wouldn't trust it as protective motorcycle clothing... but then don't do leather as I prefer textiles.

It's not that cheap..

You can buy LOADS of cheap bike gear. The armour is OPTIONAL anyway.

It looks cheap though.

If you're on a budget, buy second hand.

I currently wear a £350 Triumph leather jacket full of armour and REALLY well made. Cost me £60 on Ebay and it's like new

You shouldn't really call someone a fake company without using their products. Everyone here is concerned because of our low prices. Most of our jackets are in good quality cowhide leather. We are saving money by manufacturing our own products, hence low prices.

Fair point, and to HU!
When I visited your website nothing 'came-up' when I requested to see Motorcycle boots Could be a problem 'my end'.

Hey,

Thanks I never knew about HU. Looks very interesting.
We have four different styles of boots which we would be putting on the website very soon.

No, you're right, you shouldn't accuse a company of being dodgy without proof. However, the layout of your site is similar to ones like Belstaff Jackets,Belstaff Jacket Sale in Belstaff UK Shop! and they are not legitimate sites, which is the reason I asked. I was impressed by the chat function on your site though and would certainly like to buy off you, but, as always with internet shopping, I am wary if I don't see any reviews.

It may be offensive to mention fake sites but, honestly, there are so many out there selling fake items that it's absolutely essential to check at all times. If you are legitimate, then I apologise but there are many who aren't.

The items do look great though and, like I said, the prices are very good.

I don't think our websites resembles to that belstaff website as the layout is totally different. They don't have any contact us address on their site but have checked on who.is and they are based in China.
