I am not convinced that Tack of the Day really has any good deals. I have usually found the same item for less at another site (and these places take returns - what if they don't fit?).
I agree, and at least as far as shoes go I think they often end up with stuff that is sized weirdly. I just got my daughter a pair of rain boots in size 6. The box says 6 but if you look at the sole, they appear to be size 9. I thought they seemed like they ran large and figured she would grow into them but didn't notice this discrepancy until after she had been wearing them a couple of days. I don't think she'll ever be a 9.
I have an average size 7 foot, and two pairs of shoes (one boots and the other clogs) that I have got from TOTD are both really wide.
I also second the ToTD sizing issues. I have a pair of breeches from them that fit differently from 3 other pairs of the same brand and size that I bought from other stores. They fit more like a size down than what they are marked...but I did get $220 breeches for $80, so I can't complain terribly, but if I were to do it again I would size up or not have purchased them at all.
This looks like a great deal. Amerigo Vega 17" but measures 17.5, medium tree, but actually medium-wide. $1,500, buy-it-now for $1,800. Wish I could bid, but I'm looking at different saddle for a fraction of that price.
