1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'm curious as to the benefit from wholesaling AA stuff. Are the prices you buy it for lower than the prices that you sell to us for? I mean obviously this must be true but how much so? If it seems like any random guy can just start wholesaling then why can't we all just open our own accounts and buy t-shirts for 4$ or whatever?
    There isn't much benefit. Grapist was making a bit of profit, but mayo's prices aren't much more than marginally above wholesale. Assuming this is legit (and, so far, seems no reason to assume otherwise), it's mostly just a service to the rest of the community. Opening your own account can be somewhat difficult if you don't, say, own your own business.

    could be between 2-3 weeks honestly. I shipped to the UK and it took almost three weeks. I assume at the longest a month. This is due to the holiday season and increased customs screening.

    For all American Apparel clothing, yeah it's cut slim but not tight and only white and black items generally shrink about 1/2-1 size.

    the last batch of AA t-shirts i bought fit rather large actually, but they shrunk down to around what i was expecting them to be after a warm wash and run through the dryer. (this is larges shrinking down to fit a 42 chest)

    Did you throw them in the dryer? I'm just surprised because none of my shirts ever shrunk significantly.

    Ok, I'll take the Mens California Thermal in Navy/Me'lange Navy. Since nobody's vouched for you yet, I'll pay you half price for it and pay you the rest when I get the hoodie. The only thing you have to worry about is finding someone who can vouch for me [​IMG]
