    "Free global shipping" attracted me to Asos, but then i realised they don't take off VAT at the checkout, so that's probably what's paying for it. Sounds illegal to me, but who's gonna do shit.
    Are you sure they're not adding VAT at checkout? They specifically state "VAT is not included in our prices for customers outside of the EU," and I believe them being they have a US website with the same prices as their main website. There's no way that VAT could be included on items that are at 70% off AND include free shipping. I've never had anything removed at checkout but then again, at that price I sure as hell wouldn't expect it to be.

    I'm not exactly old but it seems that there are so many companies these days whose sole aim is to rip off their partners. Whatever happened to "always leave a little salt on the bread" etc etc?

    If you email them you can get your VAT refunded.

    Dear John Varvatos Online Guest,

    We regret to inform you that we are not able to indicate if/when
    a particular style may be in stock as we receive blind replenishment
    shipments of our merchandise. We are not advised of the styles
    and sizes we will receive in replenishment before hand.

    This is so weird.
    Prada, Balenciaga, Burberry, etc. have always been able to answer my questions about nationwide inventory, and they can usually tell me if they'll be restocking certain items. No idea why John Varvatos would opt for "blind replenishment shipments".

    I guess I'll have to call up South Coast on Tuesday or something.

    Ive read so many weird things about drkshdws, depending on the wash they seem to vary in durability. I keep hearing bout these holes that develop on the back of some. All the ones I use to own I had no problems with though

    The "hog" wash is the notoriously bad one, I think. The pair I tried came ripped in the box, and then ripped in three more places as I tried it on (no fat jokes plz).

    On the other hand, Darkshdw fleece tops, especially the FW versions, and denim jackets, are rock solid.
