    Buying postage directly from USPS gives the same discount fyi. With ebay sales though I just buy through ebay since then it'll have the tracking number automatically.

    For weighing I just use an electric kitchen scale I bought from amazon that I usually weigh coffee with, was like 15 bucks.

    @LA Guy can you tell me about cool belts, or refer to a previous post? Ideally to go with black jeans / MA+ / BBS stuff. But I know nothing about belts, so what makes some worth the price? What determines a good belt? Thanks.

    For that style, it's really a combination of an interesting but non unwearable design (CPP, imo, veers there), a good buckle design, and interesting leather treatment. Nearly never is the actual leather and workmanship going to be of the level of say, something like Equus, but those belts won't get you what you are looking for either . MA+ and the classic CCP belt are both good candidates. imo, the silver for the MA+ belts is pretty solid, but really unnecessary.

    My guess is that you're talking about Barena?

    We stock the blue ones (which are insanely comfy) but the other ones you posted are a different type of woven leather - much much pricier, and I'm not sure of any stockists for those.

    Those Diemme are really good looking if it weren't for the plaid
