    At least they can't steal it, like they do with the luggage that passes through

    Thanks for the links. We could really use some better pics of those Nicely.

    Looks like black in your photo, but yeah they look slim like the charcoals. Maybe you have the black in the slim cut. Sucks that LC only offers the charcoal in the slim cut and the black is relaxed.

    Mine are not slim fit at all, rather wide straight leg. Just the angle of the photo and the cuff. Pretty sure they are the wide blacks

    How stupid would I be to sell some $500 shoes to someone on Grailed in Russia, with no feedback?

    I've been lucky enough to avoid bad selling experiences so far. If I ship tracked and insured with signature confirmation there's still plenty of ways I can get screwed over here right?

    I lived in Moscow for a while. FedEx packages go through customs pretty quickly. EMS usually doesn't have problems, although it can get held up. Regular post -- compared to the others -- can be less reliable. Sometimes things just get held in customs for a long time and there's no way to check on the status. It could be less about the trustworthiness of the buyer and more about the lack of reliability in Russian government.

    FWIW, I've sold things to Russian buyers before (when I lived in the US). Never had a problem, but you may want to hold out for a better option if it's $500 shoes.

    I've sold to buyers in Russia, China, Malaysia, etc. all with no problems, but the two times I've had issues it was with people from California. Go figure. Just talk to the person, ask if they have Facebook, etc. if it's for an amount that large and you're worried.

    So according to SSense one of their models has a 32" chest and 26.5" waist and yet he wears a 48. Its not even an isolated incident, all of their models have fucked up measurements. It actually boggles my mind, why blatantly lie? My waist measures 32" and I wear 28/29. Yet Mr. 26.5" waist wears a size 32, lol. So dumb might as well not have measurements.

    Well at least the model's ballsack is probably more comfortable than yours if you are a 32 waist wearing a 28...
