    There's a reddit page (r/repsneakers) about replica shoes that I've browsed on occasion with some pretty good reviews and info on reputable sellers. Might be worth a shot.

    That's a hell of a definition of "forever". Looks like my order from last fall took a couple of business days, although I don't think people had freshly bloomed cherry blossoms to admire when I placed mine.



    Thanks, I'll try to get over my arbitrary aversion to reddit and check it out.

    my order took forever to ship (literally a few weeks). they blamed it on one of their union specials being down and there being a backlog of denim that needed to be hemmed.

    Thank you! Please let me know if there was a situation you ran into that you wish the guide addressed. (open invitation to anyone, really)

    Was interested in bargaining with a dude on yjp who had both a "Buy it now"-button and "Make an offer" one, but FromJapan only brought up the "Buy it now" option when I entered the link
    So, is there any way to make an offer besides getting a yjp account?

    Contacting the shopping service directly. This is less convenient with FromJapan and more convenient with a service I'm shifting my purchases to (and soon, my guide). I'll address this in a future version.

    Melbourne gets about everything possible. See geobaskets at least 1 per day.
    I was standing at a crossing next to a girl and we were both wearing MMM painted gats.
    Saw M_Moria once, Paul harnden shoes 2-3 times, Guidi 10+, CCP surprisingly like 6 times, Carpe back-lace once, Old dude in Ann hightops, Old lady in raf x adidas, Cross-dresser in rick wedges, Visvim virgils looking out the window of my lab.
    Probs a lot more that I missed, and not counting SA's. It helps that I walk everywhere and used to live next to shops that would sell these labels

    So no one else is tired of seeing geobaskets? Maybe it's just a personal idiosyncracy...or perhaps i'm the patient zero of things to come? toppling stock prices...worldwide shoe burnings...hm? who knows

    A quick thought about pants alterations.
    Generally when you ask a tailor to taper a pair of trousers, he/she will start from the knee to arrive at the desired measure at the hem.

    Example (measurements laid flat)
    - initial: 20cm at the knee, 18cm at the hem
    - measurment required: 17cm at the hem. So he will start from the knee: (20cm), and reducing the leg opening progressively until 17cm at the hem by "plotting" a straight line from 20 to 17cm across the leg. So essentially all the leg from the bottom half gets slimed down.

    So my question, are there other "usual" patterns used to achieve a taper like this (or stronget)? i.e. for example not starting from the knee but mid calf?

    Maybe I'm alone on this, but I never liked geobaskets to begin with.

    I've heard rumors that there might be another of you in a holding cell in Egypt. They don't know what to do with him and his wild and zany ideas besides lock him up. For the safety of geobaskets.

    geobaskets are kind of hideous but I somehow end up wearing them almost everyday because they're warm and have a zipper. also rick goes with more rick

    whoops I meant 'kind of hideous'. And I duno drips have their own charm sometimes. Probably terrible to wear though.
