    it amazes me how people bitch about shipping. When you shop and still and save a bunch whats the problem?? There's always somebody who just isn't happy enough. What do you think the margins is retail are?

    Agreed. I saved 65% on pants and factoring in shipping, they were still > 50% off. Any duties, etc. I get charged will still bring them in well below what I would pay locally, if I could even find them.

    SBS, or Sandy Box Syndrome, is a common, acute inflamation of the vaginal tissues.

    Those high at risk, include women at the beach, Internet fuckheads and people complaining about tracked, international shipping on obscure, hard to find, boutique brands at more than 50% off RRP.

    It's give an inch take a mile with you idiots.

    Honestly, when I shop online I prefer to pay slightly more and have shipping factored in. It just makes things simpler. I like to know the total cost up front, without having to add stuff to my cart and calculate shipping.

    I don't get the shipping complaints either, but this may be because I am resigned to not being able to get much of the stuff I want locally outside of a few brands. Suits? Forget about it.

    I think it's better to have shipping as a cost.

    I live in Australia, so I pay for shipping everywere I go on the webz, I wouldn't saddle other customers with the cost of subsidizing my shipping costs.

    I consider places like farinellis already doing me a massive favour, by not up charging, taking a loss on the shipping costs, giving me a base 20% SFD, great customer service and accepting multiple forms of payment.

    In Australia, your looking at 220 AUD for reigning champ hoodies, 350 for FP MIE harringtons, 175 for the polos. NdG base shirting was 500 AUD last year.

    In summary, I'm getting a mile, and wouldn't ask for another inch. Seems to me that alot of people take the affiliates for granted.

    ^ Yeah Mauro, don't be such a cock, ship your shit to his house, ASAP.

    FFS, man, these affiliates, they are just scamming us for money.
