Rakuten won't/don't mark down in my experience, use a proxy ie jake, stylistics etc to avoid paying customs charges

is it cheaper doing it that way – say if an item costs £200 GBP?

I just used stylistics space, it was super easy, it's 10% plus shipping. (Domestic and international)

I had him mark as gift and value to 4000yen and no customs fees.

I'm not sure on candles, maybe they could get through a bit easier?



You risk losing your money, heard some ebay buyers getting the things through but a lot losing out too.

Square leather laces? Most cobblers have them. There's plenty on eBay too.

Still find it bizarre that a nice lady called Kelsey I met in October 2010, in a small vintage store in NYC my wife hunted down, whom claimed she worked with HN and advised him in vintage product turned out to be his future wife.

Wish I had kept in touch with her, would have been interesting.

First time poster in the U.S. looking for sizing advice on the AW13 Kilgore.

I'm a bigger guy (6'3", 210 lbs.) and was lucky enough to get my hands on the AW13 101 Jacket in size 5. It fits great, definitely the right size.

I understand that Visvim didn't make the Kilgore in a size 5. Based only only the measurements from the Visvim website, it seems that the size 4 might work for me, as the shoulder and p2p are nearly identical to my 101 Jacket. However, I've seen measurements elsewhere (including from dee when he sold his) that make me think the size 4 would be just a bit too small.

Would I be crazy to try the size 4?

Thanks.
