    Aren't you always talking about the economy??
    that's true. i like supporting retailers and free markets, but I don't like concepts like luxury taxes. i think it punishes people for being "successful" and for spending big $$$. its really bad in places like australia and new zealand where luxury taxes are ridiculously high. well, you alread7 know this, living in AU, right?

    actually i don't think New Zealand has a luxury tax.


    That was just Yoox being wankers.

    GST is 12.5% on any item being sold, and then duties can be from 0-15%.


    For some reason Yoox decided to add 40%, as well as it being about 15% more expensive than from the NZ site, and also charge $45 for shipping, even though Italy is exactly half way between the US and NZ.

    picked up these Margielas. got them in size 42 but i think i need a size 43. if anyone wants them i'll let them go for my cost plus shipping (around $450). otherwise i'll exchange them (they come with distressing on the toe, heel and a few other places, fyi)
    Saw that model (not sure if they were the ones you got) on the 'bay but that toe thing is unattractive, imo.
    I got it for 76 and change shipped. Quite a few people have expressed interest too including JJ from SuFu, who I think can totally pull it off. This joint would look super kawaii on girls [​IMG]. Yeah only wished it was a size or two bigger so I could wear it slightly oversized. But thinking it over, this might just be too cool to let go lol. I Could even cop this: [​IMG] And use for a Halloween costume. [​IMG]
    Fuck that plebeian shit, kop the Thom Browne astronaut suits (actually, there was a similarly themed TB oxford with an American flag patch that was only $215, was very temtped but not sure if it was an exclusive for FNO)
    could have at least posted a pic first...
    I believe it was the Lanvin leather (with wool sleeves) trench though I thought it'd be more expensive than that.

    You should just post receipts instead of fits, it makes your intentions on this forum far more obvious.

    ^dude, you seem like a nice guy but you're always trying to show how cosmopolitan you are with your food choices and your vespa and such. What a baller. Call me when you have a family to support, a mortgage, 529s, multiple 4-whelled vehicles (a.ka., cars) and can still rock rick and CCP. now that's ballin! [​IMG]

    It's a funky light tanish color, I didn't really like the contrast it made with a white collar underneath. Maybe I was wrong, sorry. Edit: actually, i'd rather you were right because then it becomes something I can wear often, so I'll try it on again
