People did the same thing, but in smaller physical communities.What was Men's fashion like before there was a place where a select few could define what Men's fashion is and where everyone else could contemplate the ersatz-ness of purchases made in accordance with that definition?
Is it wrong to label the last decade as the democratization of fetish?People did the same thing, but in smaller physical communities.
Richard Press once told me stories about how Ivy Style guys way back in the day used to judge each other on whether someone had the right items or labels. Paul Winston at Chipp said it wasn't so much about specific and codified rules, but people knew what was the "right" look and "wrong" look based on their social circles. I remember hearing those stories and feeling it was an exact mirror of what I saw growing up around guys who were obsessive about Polo Ralph Lauren. You knew which were the right pieces. There was a "look" and if you were in that social circle, you knew how to create it.
i just received a dhl package that went from japan to the US in less than a week. someone in the kapital thread said they had a similar experience (dhl from japan in less than a week). so i guess things are a crapshoot.Have received several UPS shipments from Italy (to the US) during the past few months, and have experienced no delays at all. Received an on-time shipment as recently as last week.
The only delays I've experienced are from Japan, which has a months-long wait regardless of the carrier. Side note: Does anyone have a persimmon tannin (kakishibu) hook up in North America?
Might also depend where you are, I had a similar experience but I'm in Aus so the distance probably was a factor (vs say the US or Europe).i just received a dhl package that went from japan to the US in less than a week. someone in the kapital thread said they had a similar experience (dhl from japan in less than a week). so i guess things are a crapshoot.
