I've seen their denim before. +1 for nice fades.
Speaking of Japan, I just arrived back from a family trip there.
Nothing clothing-related to share, unfortunately, as the only clothing store I managed to get to while I was there was Uniqlo!
However, we were there for the cherry blossoms for the first time in 11 years, which was great. We also ate far too much food and generally indulged ourselves.
+1. Can't recommend Equus enough. I've been after a couple of suede belts for a while. Grabbing one in Tobacco and one in Chocolate suede.
was thinking more along the lines of the beama outerwead that Gerry has, I use uniqlo for tees atm though.
Beautiful good to see you got there in time! There for long?
^ Only ten days this time.
Due to school holidays, we usually only go in the middle of summer or winter, so it was nice to go in spring and to see the cherry blossoms for a change.
What buckle do you recommend for the tobacco suede?
I just got my standard polished stainless steel.
Already bought my BA a while ago on eBay. I pulled the trigger on a bottle of Pardon, as my sample is getting low. One of the guys there is going to chuck in some nice samples for me as well, so should end up a good deal with their free shipping.
Odd story is why they are on sale. Apparently there is already a Nasomatto seller in the Royal Arcade, so they have to drop the line. Believe it or not, the Nasomatto seller is one of the shoe shops.
Question to you and any other fragrance importers into Australia: what's the deal with customs/GST? I can't figure it out from their site. Do you get charged 10% GST? Is there a specific tax on fragrances?
So far my samples have arrived in other countries, and I suspect that bottles may not be treated the same as samples anyway.
In the past it's never been an issue because I've never imported an order above the GST limit. Not sure how this will be in future.
Has anyone else noticed the price creep in nice jackets from the big "international" brands? It seems like just a few years ago you could get a nice Barbour or Belstaff for $500 and the real concern then was maybe wonky fit or sizing.
It's like all of the brands are just doing what they've always done now... except for $300 more.
That said, I just ponied up for a Barbour Beacon sports jacket in navy - which should be just enough jacket for a South Australian winter.
PS: are we allowed to spruik our own ads? If so, look to my sig...
Barbour commander is a great outdoor coat. On my last doof it kept me warm and dry on a gloomy rainy night.
Yes, some of it's from Japan via Rakuten but I've also bought from eBay and grailed. I got my grey herringbone wool Bedford from Up There.
They have all sorts of interesting things there - fancy a windowpane Bedale with tumeric yellow paisley lining? Well, you can tick that one off your bucket list now.
