As I understand it KKA is supposed to sort of be more of a luxury runway line, whereas Attachment is supposed to be more mainline -- but the distinction between the two kind of blurs. I'd love some info on buying it as well, I've fallen deeply in love over the last few weeks with KK's designs. North American stores mark it up so much (there could be legit reasons for all I know) that it is ostensibly cheaper to proxy it from Japan. The hooded coat brad and I were discussing the other day is something like $800 in Japan and $1665 from Archive in San Fran. plain.gif

I wanna know too! I want these attachment pants from H lorenzo but they're like $900... i'm guessing they're much cheaper in japan?

hehehe... I am more New Jack Swing than Hammer rap. uhoh.gif

I like the suggestion of dress shoes. I think these pants would pretty nice with some black derbies and a big chunky sweater. It's still summer here for another month or more though. Just be happy I didn't wear my Birkenstocks again.

Yeah Attachment is bitchin. But US stores basically double the price, which makes proxying a pretty attractive option

This. how the hell can just one brand make so much awesome stuff? inlove.gif

their black jeans are just awesome, and don't cost too much (first purchase with christmas-money perhaps? inlove.gif)

IIRC, US stores double the price of Japanese clothes because the Japanese labels set the wholesale price for US stores at Japanese retail.

There's some big convoluted reason for all of that whole process, but I can't quite remember what.

I should have taken advantage of being in tokyo TWICE this summer.

yeah, I remember some discussion way back when about the logic behind the markup, and it made sense

it's still craaazy markup
post #75642 of 117668

so is there anyone here on the forum who proxies? or do you guys have some other solution in mind for fixing it?

post #75643 of 117668
find the items of your choice and sprinkle them with proxy dust
