I was talking to an SA today about getting something in burgundy to match my bag. I was thinking about a pair of shoes in burgundy. I could try on the same model in a different colour, get the right size and order them being 100% sure I would get them, even put down the sum, I even offered to. However the SA said there was no point as there were only a few stores getting the show collection stuff and that those stores would hold on to the unsold items even though there were no waitlist or names put down as they knew they would sell them in the end and thus make more sales points for that particular store, no matter how late it would happen. =-/ IN the end, the SA told me that they weren't really always that co-operative. I usually always want something from the show collection, but I can't go to London or Paris every week to get what I want lol, so these were indeed bad news for me! ANyone had similar experiences?
