    I have 2 questions :

    I have a pair of leather shoes (not the dress kind, its a mix of casual/going out type) that has been scratched on new years eve...i was hammered to shit. eventually blacked out.

    anyways they are expensive. and i just bought them. there's scratches all over the place. any idea how to permanently get rid of them. im aware u probably cant completely get rid of them but at least minimize the damage-look.


    also does the newer j.lindeberg line does not have the logo on the chest area for most clothes? cuz i bought a shawl collar herringbone sweatshirt and it does not have the logo on the chest like it shows on the website.

    A good polish will help a lot as long as you didn't majorly gouge the leather. I think most leather shoes look better worn in, especially if they're not formal. Keep wearing them out to wild parties, get them scratched up more, barfed on, whatever, polish every once in a while, and you're good.

    If you don't mind darts in the back (two vertical lines created when the tailor pinches the fabric together and sews the pinched area closed), then you can have these tailored to fit you perfectly. I just had my tailor work on several of my shirts, which were blousey like this, and now they fit perfectly. $22 shirt + $15 tailoring job = perfection for $37.

    It's 100% cotton flannel,is the material wool-like and will get "hairy" after wear and age?Is this kind of material machine washable?

    Anyone has experience of import duty with DHL?

    I am going to order a jacket from UK, they ship via DHL. How can I pay DHL if there's an import duty? Will they bill me? How much I should pay? I heard it's like 10%.

    What's the chance of they don't let me pay import duty?

    Just keep in mind where the fur is coming from. It's one thing to own something made of cow/sheep leather, since those animals are being raised for food, but it's another entirely to have something made out of an animal that was raised with the sole purpose of being killed to provide you with a soft luxury item.

    So I am looking at buying some raw indigo trousers, I'm 5'8" and typically wear a 30X30, I have noticed that the measurements for these trousers and a lot of other raw indigo denim has a 30 waist but the inseam is 36. Are they meant for rolling the legs up? I'mnot used to these measurements.

    Studiohomme shipped a order with DHL didn't mark down value (~$500 in dollars) and I didn't have any customs to California. Only one experience with DHL and I haven't had any customs ever to California so not sure if this is that helpful or not.

    You're supposed to just get them hemmed it'll cost you like $10. Or just stack them up, I have the same inseam and I never hemmed my jeans which were a 36.

    +1 on this. It's totally normal for a lot of higher end denims to only have one inseam size.

    If you are spending some serious money - don't just get them hemmed, but have them chainstitched which a lot of denim specialty shops can do.

    So it looks like even the stores didn't mark down value, there's still have chance not hit customs.

    Thanks Stevent.

    anyone else was charged and paid customs before?
