I prefer to see (and buy) fine art in person than buy online, particularly since I'd rather support local artists.

Fresh groceries, for sure. Produce, dairy, etc. Generally I would also say shoes, as every pair tends to fit just a little different. I did, however, recently buy a pair online - but it was the exact same style dress shoe as a pair I already owned and had worn out.

Jeans, as how they fit is too important. Lots of other stuff, really. Anything that the smell, touch, color or fit are important. Generally I only buy clothes online from places like Kohls with a fair return policy and a local brick and mortar store I can visit to exchange them.

I just realized, after reading comments from those who won't buy clothing online, everything I have on just now I purchased online, with the exception of socks and boxer shorts. I'm not very oddly sized or shaped so it's pretty easy to do.

I've never purchased a bra online, with something like that you have to try them on!

Diamonds....you gotta see the sparkle in person.

Fresh food. And clothes. If I can't try it on, it just won't fit right.

Sofas and mattresses. Hard to tell how cushioned/firm those are from pictures. The reviews might be great, but how many of the reviewers are my height, like the same amount of "give" I do, and so on?

Fresh food, like dairy products and vegetables.

Shoes and jeans that are not a brand and size I am familiar with.

Cars (not that I buy cars all that often).

Jeans are something that I would never buy online because the exact fit is so important to me. It's really hard to tell online what the wash/style is.

My next yacht. Made that mistake one time and won't repeat it.

I missed out on a top grain leather rocker recliner that Costco had in the store last week. I really, really wanted it, but had to wait 2 days for my bank account to replenish. Of course, when I went back, it was sold out. I looked at some of the other ones Costco had online, but I just can't see spending that kind of money on something I have no idea is comfortable enough or of sufficient quality without eyeballing it or sitting on it first. Same with beds or couches.

I probably wouldn't order a bride over the internet. Well not now anyway. Who knows about the future.

I have weird feet, so I'd be hesitant to buy shoes online. I have shoes in various sizes based on comfort. Most sites would make me pay to ship back and I can often beat Zappos' prices in a retail store. But i can't say never if the deal is good enough...

Also, I'm picky about fresh groceries, so I probably wouldn't buy those online.

@trevinopete: I'm the same way, but I wore out a pair of Adidas that I loved and was able to order an identical pair from shoebacca.com on the cheap. "... can't say never..." seems appropriate

@tmontgom: That is a good one. Plus one and I wish it could be more.

@segafanalways: While I agree with you, I had a co-worker mail order a bride from Russia and she is AMAZINGLY HOT. And they are still together after 10+ years.
