    Having some trouble fading my APC NS, worn them about 60-80 times over 11 months but looks like I have <5% fading, should I be running and playing sports in them to increase the fading?

    I'm on the market for a pair of slim chinos and I have a 20% coupon for ASOS. Do you think I should get a pair of Polo Jeans Ralph Lauren Truman Slim Chinos for 90€ after discount?
    You should look at the Men's Clothing B&S section. It is quite common to find Incotex or Mabitex chinos for like $50 a pair.

    Have you washed them at all? Wearing them will give you the lines and whiskers, but washing them will work to enhance these lines and fade the denim overall.

    You have to be careful about posting images from Imageshack as the forum has had trouble displaying these images. Don't know where to get those socks specifically, although you may want to PM MellowFellow as I believe that is his photo, no? I like a lot of the socks from HowardYount.com. The site is owned by an SFer.

    Are the Polo Darlton and Marlow (dark brown cordovan wingtip) the same shoe?
    I think Marlow became the Darlton. Marlow was the name from like three years ago.

    Looks like it.

    I was under the impression that street wear meant clothing similar to what is usually seen on Karma Loop/Hype Beast. The only reason I say this is because it's summer and I need to buy some t-shirts. I went to karma loop and all i see is "LOOK AT ME I'M AN ATTENTION WHORE URBAN YOUTH FAGGOT" or "LOOK AT ME, I'm COOL I HAVE BOOBS ON MY T-SHIRT, I pretend no one cares about my shirt but I wear it on purpose so everyone stares at me and I just go by without a care but in reality I do care, infact EVERY SECOND!".

    So seriously, do you guys wear this crap with these obnoxious diamonds and script ysl logos and boobs and gangsta rap lyrics or do you guys just rock basic plain tees?

    If you guys wanna share some sites where I can get some cool tees, please rec em [​IMG]

    US customers ordering from a UK company - customs

    When a US customer orders apparel from a UK-based company do you usually need to pay a customs duty on the package?

    Does it even normally get stopped by customs?

    If the package is subject to a duty, do you need to go somewhere to pick up the package and/or pay duty?


    Possibly important/useless details:
    The package in question (1 item, clothing, made in UK) was sent via Royal Mail - International about 7 days ago.
    Royal Mail says the package was "passed to the overseas postal service for delivery" (which, I'm assuming, means the package will eventually be delivered via USPS).
    US Postal Service seems to acknowledge the package's existence, sort of: "We have received notice that the originating post is preparing to dispatch this mail piece." (sounds like it's denying it actually has the package).

    Depends on the value and whether or not it gets caught by customs. The daily volumes are so large that a part slips through unchecked, so you might get lucky. It usually takes a minimum of 1.5 weeks for something to arrive from the UK, so the tracking info just means it's left the UK but it hasn't arrived/been processed in the US yet.
