Any publicly traded courier companies?

Which are the ones that fuck us over with customs "brokerage" charges?

I'm investing in those wankers.

Well the great thing is that Uniqlo has finally opened up in the Bay Area and I have heard good things about their socks and briefs. Will save me some money on shipping + fees via Suddenlee, RIP

uniqlos socks are pretty affordable and come in a dizzying array of colors.  their no-show socks are quite good, too, and they have no slip material in the heel section.

I wear Comme des Garçons the same way Andy Warhol once wore $100,000 women’s necklaces underneath his Brooks Brothers turtlenecks — to be fashionable in secret. Only you know you spent money when you wear Rei’s creations. In fact, some of the more fashion-impaired public actually feels sorry for us! “That’s a shame about that coat,” an uninformed friend said to me once in a bar in Baltimore when I was wearing, well high fashion. “John Waters in his thrift-shop finest,” the press has written when, in fact, I was featuring a brand-new Comme des Garçons suit! Rei Kawakubo gives us undercover glamour. We know how great her clothes look, but others just think we’re poor.


Her look? Disaster at the dry cleaner. “I didn’t do it!” is the usual cry. Mine has learned to read the complicated and sometimes hilarious instruction labels with courage: “Do not dry clean; do not wash; garment may fray, fade, change shape.” These pants? One hundred percent polyester, wrinkled unable to be pressed. So comfortable, so unnatural, and so expensive. “Friction may cause the flocks to rub off or a slight fuzz may develop,” one label reads. Friction? What’s that mean? Walking?

Rei Kawakubo’s work is never funny, but her wit is so ferocious, so elegant, so scary, and sometimes even so ridiculous that her customers never have buyer’s remorse. How could they feel they had overspent when they look so courageous, so cult-like, superior, and even slightly insane every time they get dressed in one of her outfits? Rei’s look can never go out of style because she is either starting a new one or ruining a trend that’s not even popular yet but is about to be so. In her own words, Rei commented: “I think the world and its values are often lukewarm. I’d like to keep on trying to make it hotter.” Well, she certainly has. Beyond “hotter,” if you ask me, into spontaneous combustion! She makes pretty ugly, ugly handsome, and handsome disorienting. Rei Kawakubo is my leader. She is for many of us too.

I'm not a specific fan of Rei or CdG at all, but regardless of who he is talking about these are the words of a total up-his-own-ass fashion hag. Essentially he says "I like something that's not at all popular, nobody else understands me, you all think it's awful but I know the truth because I'm part of an elite club with money to waste on frivolous crap! Tee hee hee!" I bet he looks terrible in the clothes he is writing about.
