***The Official Rick Owens Thread*** - Page 80
Is there anyone around with experience buying RO from Rakuten? Alternately, could someone comment on these two pieces? I plan to inquire for a picture of the tag so I can try to check season and leather code, but in general it's my first time seriously thinking of buying from there so advice would be appreciated.
Ragtag and Rinkan are major retailers that happen to sell stock online to help move inventory- They probably won't be able to pull a pic for you unless you find out which store has the item, and even there the language barrier is so tough to overcome its probably not worthwhile. FWIW both are legit and have good teams authenticating items, but finding out what season or leather combo is gonna be tough.
Thanks for this! Glad to know they are both fairly reputable. I'm in the market with a few preferences (hammered lamb and ideally FW08-10). The Ragtag looks like it's hammered, but would like to be certain, while the Rinkan looks newer (?) but also treated somehow. I'll try contacting anyway.
Should I expect to pay customs if I end up buying either?
