    It's not worth grapist, mayo's, and chim's time to make $1.50 per shirt when they have all the stuff too worry about. Paypal fees are a bitch too. Everyone here knows we're not getting these shirts for the exact wholesale price. We're getting them pretty much half off of what AA charges in store. Some people are doing a favor to others here, and you for some reason have a problem. I don't think anyone feels lied too. We all know it's not "wholesale" prices but it's pretty much as cheap as you can get them without the seller getting too little in return to actually provide this, yes illegal, service.

    What does immigration have to do with you being new? No one has a problem with new people on the forums, just people whose first few posts are attacking someone providing a helpful service to the forum, whether it is to your ethical standard or not. You obviously have not done anything like this before. Just don't look at the people providing shopping services in japan. You might have an aneurism looking at their fees. Don't shit up mayo's thread.

    Out of the five people that I've seen offer American Apparel Wholesale on various forums, they all charge the exact same prices that Mayo charges.

    you're probably not big on immigration, are you.

    i had no intention of "trying to start shit," but rather of pointing it out. the shit has apparently existed long prior to my arrival. however, i do realize that perspective can appear threatening, and thus i will hereby leave you to your moderately illegal, ethically questionable pseudo-business. enjoy.


    Sorry, but you are starting shit, and being a dick as well.

    True, the "wholesale prices" thing is a bit misleading, but I don't think mayo can go back to change it to be "AA at Wholesale Prices + Markup for Me". Why would Mayo, the Grapist, et al be doing this simply out of the goodness of their heart or to earn a small margin for each shirt? Of course they're earning a profit, and they're selling their shirts for half the price that AA sells them for. And nobody is going to order just one shirt... the whole point is that for bulk orders, you're lowering the cost of shipping per item.

    Lets see... for each order, Mayo has to contribute time to place the order from AA, package the order and the order from the customer, pay for the cost of packaging, take the package to the postoffice, and worry about buyers that might screw her over. Then there is the retailers permit cost, paypal fees, etc. What part of this do you not understand?

    So who exactly loses here? Continue buying your $2 t-shirts at AA store for $19... I'll buy from the wholesalers. No rocket science required. Fucking Communists.

    Ok, so back on topic, who is offering the "wholesale" service right now? It appears that mayo is busy/not around/not drop shipping, etc....

    And whats the time scale of delivery? I want to have it sent to a friend in the US so she can carry it over for me.

    sufu has a guy "chim" who is doing it. However, he also recently got a scare like mayo. Chim is still doing it, but he's thinking of doing his shipping methods differently so he doesn't get in trouble. It would slightly increase the shipping charges and turn around time though.

    Hi Guys,

    I want to order 8 or so different colors of Polo shirts from AA. I measured my chest and it was 44.5. Now the L is 42-44 and the XL is 46-48.

    I am in a bit of awkward situation here. Take L with the chance that it is too small. Take XL and ending up with ugly too big shirts that I wont be wearing anymore for sure.

    I like to wear shirts not too tight but also not to loose. Will these shirts shrink a lot after cold (machine) wash?


    Thank you in front for useful response.

    I think his account got frozen by american apparel because someone basically ratted him out (they call customers sometimes when they're suspicious of an account).

    yeah, you are starting shit. there's nothing "illegal", "ethically questionable" or "pseudo-business(ly)" about this.

    I am still doing it. Depending on stock and location, orders take 2 days, to about a week or so.

    Are you still doing this? I'm interested in stocking up 14 v-neck t-shirts and at least 7 long sleeve shirts.
