1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    It wasn't me, it was LAGuy, in the WrongWeather thread, I was the one who said I always get customs fees from all postal services except USPS. I received a package via FedEx Express 2 weeks ago and got a bill but it was $0 so I guess the huge shipping fee covers it, might have just been luck.

    Pretty much all of them do. Custom fees varies but it is usually a lot.

    Yeah, they were from por vocacoa and the lady emailed me a pdf I had to sign. They listed them as full price, too. Fuck. Here's to hoping my good deal doesn't get ruined.

    The irony of this whole thing is they most likely won't fit.

    I wanted to wear them this weekend, but I'll just wear some boots. It's fucking cold.


    If it doesn't work out let me know [​IMG]

    Browns subtracts VAT from list price on checkout; I don't recall oki-ni doing it; haven't used the other one.
    Can get 10% off that and free shipping...so for under $300 not a bad deal. Size 12 Lanvins lows.
    The code was MAR11, and it expired this afternoon (as it is now APR11).

    Okini takes off vat if you email them to be placed on their no VAT list. Then it'll subtract at checkout like other websites. A hassle but its not too bad.

    ^^^ Are those black or navy ? I like the new texture too, without it they'd be just like the patent ones

    How often does YOOX put new stuff up? Seems like every time I check this thread, someone post a link to something new.

    I'm in dire need of black sneakers now. I shouldn't have passed up this black MMM highs around Xmas. [​IMG]
