Thanks for this. Are you able to bid on listings as a JP resident? Have seen a few bits on YJP that won't allow proxy services to bid on them?!

I’m after a deck jacket from buzz ricksons or real McCoy’s , read online that they’re much cheaper buying from Japan, if that’s true does anyone have a site to check out?

For RMC the prices are listed in the catalogue page (check tax) on their site and are not usually discounted so should be right.

The RMC online shop doesn't seem to have accurate stock. Their dealer list is quite good but you will need to Google each shops web presence annoyingly.

I did this to find a recent purchase, ordered online from Ibaraki to a Japanese address of a mate with my UK card, most of the local RMC shops have web ordering.

Barnstormer is usually a good shout.

I tend to find the easiest way is to Google image what you want and just click through to the sites that have models wearing them. It's a bit of a minefield finding up to date stockists sometimes.

There are two types depending on which cut of the rmc you want. I think the first edition is more repro, but could be wrong. One of them definitely has a more modern fit.

Also search for the model number on Google / image search. Takes a bit of trawling.

Do you think marking down a parcel with a pair of Visvim Grizzlys and a shirt at 1800 yen is taking the piss?

I appreciate that weight is not necessarily a concern based on the value, but do wonder if they will think a parcel that heavy is worth £15.

I've always marked down items I've sent to the UK as ¥3,000, and that has included some very heavy/large items, and AFAIK no-one has ever been charged custom/taxes.

Yeah I've done parcels before up to 5/6kg and always just mark as 1500yen. Never had any problems

^^ all agreed, but can anyone confirm the insurance position in the unlikely event it goes missing? I guess it's either pay customs or limit your potential claim.

You can only claim up to the value that you marked it as on customs usually, just the risk you take

Unless whoever posted it managed to somehow insure it higher at the post office but still mark it as low value on the customs form

Zenmarket do. They force you to purchase insurance as part of your order if you mark down. if lost, you claim the valued declared from the courier and the difference from Zen.

Still awaiting arrival from Tokyo after 3 days. That's lot even with Covid. Unless it hasn't been scanned in. Bloody customs.

If it's been sent via EMS bung the tracking number into Parcel Force.

I wouldn't worry. Royal Mail is extremely lazy in updating at the moment. I had something shipped from Tokyo on the 30th October and just received it today. It still shows 30th October as last entry !
