    Wow. That's insane. You live in Taiwan right? (I think I remember you typing that at some point) You guys seen the Ann Demeulemeester SS2012 buy preview on H.Lorenzo? Looks pretty awesome. The boots (in black) will be mine ASAP.

    Nope, I haven´t been to Asia, though I would love to, so many great countries to visit there. I´m from argentina. If things come in through the national post office, the taxes are 50%, but when you get your stuff shipped by shipping companies like Fedex and DHL, taxes are much higher.

    BTW, those black leather sandal boots are so fricking awesome. Reminded me of the gladiator birkenstocks from burberry prursom´s summer 2011 show... Those will probably cost like 2k.

    yeah DHL is the worst in my experience, they're the ones that charged me $300. YMMV depending on which country you live.

    It's best to just ask the sender to mark it as a gift, while still marking the correct value. That way if something goes wrong, they're still insured, but you don't get screwed at duties.

    A lot of shops still won't do this though.

    Never heard of this site. They carry some interesting brand. Kinda wish my budget wasn´t so limited right now (gotta save for upcoming summer).
    Maybe that miharayasuhiro striped tank top , love that brand [​IMG]

    Online retailers don´t mark things as gift nor do they lower prices. At least the ones I´ve shopped at (mr. porter and luisa via roma). The thing that bothers me about Mr. porter, where i´ve ordered 3 times, I think, is that they only use DHL, whic ensures that I will definately pay close to the price of my order [​IMG] At least luisa via roma uses both dhl and fedex, and if it comes with the latter, it´s less taxes duties to pay.

    which is why you PM something like that, instead of posting it on a public forum.

    crosspost from something timpoblete posted in the EG thread, but the look on the right with the quilted side out is soooooo sick

    it's very, very close to what I wanted to do and why I was looking for busted up petit standards :D

    I know a whole bunch of em, will start a thread soon.

    SNS thread has turned into the apc thread with people trying to squeeze into the smallest possible size stark they can find.
