How to Get Matched Sets
We always attempt to ship matched pairs and sets. In fact, we are about the only shop that routinely matches pairs and sets. As a practical matter, the best way to get a matched set is to order two or more pairs at the same time. That way, even if our pre-matched sets are gone, we cull through the bin to find as good a match as possible. But if you order one pair today and another pair next week, how well that set will match is a gamble. So if you want a matched set, be sure to order multiple pairs at the same time. No guarantee how well a set will match. But at least we do make the effort.
