Smaller, No distress & from Manchester
on 9 April 2014
I wonder what I have had delivered. Nowhere is it marked Evans Lichfield nor the model number LB363 (or LB362 which is what their web site suggests the code is).
Well let's check the other product attributes as described with what I actually got delivered.
Amazon description: 18 inch by 13 inch
Reality: 15x10 inch with filling inside
16x11 inch with filling removed
Amazon description: 100% cotton cover
Reality: cover label states 60% cotton 40% polyester
Amazon description: 100% polyester fibre filling
Reality: label states 100% polyester fibre (hey something matches)
Amazon picture: Union Jack with broad and narrow white diagonals either side red diagonal cross (distress upside down flag possible)
Reality: equally sized diagonal white stripes (so distress upside-down flag not possible). mine also does not match that on the 18x13inch picture of the LB362 on their web site either.
Description: made in Midlands
Reality: labels state made in HTL Manchester M17 15B. Not in the Midlands as far as anyone actually from there believes. Evans Lichfield are in Lichfield, Staffs, WS14 9TZ, a stones throw from Birmingham.
So I have a substitute that neither looks like nor matches most of the description.
Finish Quality wise it is fairly well made.
It has a well concealed zip along one of the **15inch length** sides
I actually like the subdued colour of it but it does look too small to be much use. However, the unusually small size does sometimes prove handy for neck support but I would still like a bigger one. Now I know why the shop ones I saw were so much more expensive.
So too many things out of kilter with the description which is bad form for on-line selling and I cannot be bothered to send it back. If these differences are important to you, beware.
