Wow! What a complete nightmare. And then they didn't even fit. Such a bummer. I just received my khaki Dickers from La Garconne today as well. I always choose the option "Hold at FedEx Facility". If you have a FedEx mail store near you I'd suggest doing that. Of course you have to then go pick up your package, but you always get it the day of delivery or before. I used to always miss being at home to sign for packages. And there's plenty of FedEx stores now a days. It doesn't have to be the main facility. Hopefully your next pair will fit perfectly. On a side note, I'd just like to say that I love this seasons khaki. It's a completely different shade than the green khaki from last season. It's like a light tannish beige color. No green hue whatsoever. Very pretty. I still love my green pair, but these are going to go with absolutely everything. 2 thumbs up!
