Mid-September likely because I just pre-ordered mine from XTRA and was told of the delivery date
Isnt XTRA much more expensive compared to Unwanted Imports? Why didnt you order from unwanted.

Xtra price is $22xx vs UI $17xx the difference is about $500, basically paying more is for the peace of mind for warranty ...

Hi, just wondering if you have sent an email to info@unwantedimports.com?
I realised they have the old ymail, and then this email as well.
Just wondering because I am worried as well, as I just placed an order last week.

I am also thinking if it is possible that the latest batch from Unwanted Imports are made in Dong Guan. Since XTRA says their upcoming stocks are from Dong Guan. Hopefully Unwanted Import still get those made in USA ones.

My Aeron finally came today. Very satisfied!
Those who were also wondering like me, the chair received is Made in USA and not DG. Also from batch Jan 2020.

Initially I thought it will come without the box, but it did came with the box as well.

No rough edges on the chair as well.

The only thing is there is a light scratch mark on the top side of the chair (near to where we would mount the headrest) and have not figure out how to get that off yet.

Other than that, everything else is perfect!
Regretted not having ordered the Atlas Headrest together.

Indeed, they are selling more than they can ship to SG, both UI and Xtra. Lead time for ordering in July will take delivery in mid Sep as I was told. There was MIC available in Aug but also booked up pretty fast.

Graphite and carbon is 2199 and 2222 when I checked w Xtra, was told it's promo price already. With the current demand, there isn't much incentive for them to bring it down lower. UI prices are easily $500 cheaper.

Mineral is nice to look at but not sure in long run if its easy to maintain but this color is pricier whoever you buy from, including shopee.
