    2. On foot pick ups are now available for orders going above 30000yen retail.

    Got my items from parachutes acouple days ago. Boy he is quick, took about 3-days to get to me. Easy communication, and super fast shipping. I plan on working with Hajime again.

    Bunch of sales starting over here. Most stores will open up on Jan 2nd, so pick ups will begin after then.

    W+H and Engineered Garments are available at 20~30% off. I can probably get the entire collection for EG at this moment. Still lots of XS~Ms available for these two brands.

    also these common projects were available for 21000yen retail. That would make it about 28000yen shipped to north america/aussie, +500 for europe.

    I'm going to stop taking online orders on Feb 21st as I will be leaving Japan for roughly a month from Feb 27th. I can do store pick ups until 25th.

    I'm not 100% decided on what to do with this after I get back as I will be starting full time job from April. I have the lowest fee at 12% at this moment, so let me know if you want something from here!

    First post on this thread has some old information about the serivce, and I can't edit it anymore for some reason. Please refer to the post on superfuture for updated info!

    Yeah, actually I will be dropping by the shibuya store very soon to pick up some nandox2s. The store is very close to the post office that is open on weekends&holidays, so I can still do pick ups on this brand even after I start the new work.

    I developed a good relationship with one guy at this place as well. He worked at the head office for a while before moving to retail, and is able to get rare/old/not-available-to-the-public items 45RPM makes through people he knows. (ex. raw models aren't open to the market here, but he can get a hold of one). They will also chainstitch for free.

    I don't think so. He doesn't seem to be replying to e-mails at least.
