    Only Barneys Madison Ave stocked the first collection, but hopefully this will lead to increased production / more stockists soon?

    I have an impossible time finding t-shirts that fit right, practically everything at sub-$50 prices is a couple inches too short in the body.

    It's really hard to pull off leathers in the formal/casual or even "modernist" look, I think platypus did the later recently (say black raf trousers+crisp white dress shirt+black Lang shoes w. a leather) but not sure it wasn't some cotton thing. It's mostly a runway thing where you have to look all German-ed and have the right haircut and you still look sorta iffy at parties.

    You were recently talking (in the leather thread) about not being too reactive when something happens to your leather, I, of course agree. In the last month I (or someone else who wore it, not sure) made a hole in one of my Rick leathers and some chick ripped off buttons of a Harnden blazer. It's normal, it happens and people can fix these problems so all you have to do is chill.

    It's definitely a brand that has affinities with Viridi-anne and Attachement but yeah, more rock/punk less goth/industrial. BTW I met the designer at an Attachement presentation and they're friends so I'd say, at least socially speaking, it draws bridges with the other "goth-ninja" Japanese designers...

    I'm getting really tired of the customs charges that come with ordering from overseas shops. can this be prevented anyway? I just got a $86 bill from Fedex for 2 things I bought from Norse Store a few weeks ago. So ridiculous. I'm honestly thinking about not ordering internationally anymore.

    I just ordered from Norse Store last week and now FedEx is making me fill out some international shipping form. Hopefully a bill doesn't show up later :eek:

    i had to do the same thing. it's already too late, you will be charged a 25% tax.

    I'm in NYC by the way. Never got a customs bill from Tres Bien, but have gotten outrageous ones from Norse, Farfetch, and others. Makes me think twice about ordering internationally, especially since you don't know how hard you'll be hit until a month later.
