1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Yea I've always wanted to order from Oki-ni but I've heard stories of huge import charges, even to US.

    Just got the sweater without any duty packages. I haven't ordered from them in a few years, but I was never charged duties. The big thing was shipping...and now it's free.

    You don't get the customs notice for 2 weeks, it doesn't come upon arrival of the package.

    When I got hit with customs charges from rakuten, I had to pay at the post office to pick up the item, and they wouldn't deliver it.

    true, assuming it was shipped by courier (UPS, fedex, DHL)

    post office customs I've never been charged, but CS is right in that you have to pay it before you pick up package

    This is true...my package arrived DHL. We'll see if I get some after-the-fact charge.

    In the meantime, those pbjs look nice...how motivated are you to sell those?

    Two Ralph Lauren Rugby button-down shirts and the moleskin work jacket. The shirts are average: decent cut, sub-par fabric, but, overall, better than J. Crew for a similar price.

    The jacket, though, is unbelievable, especially for the price (you can use the friends and family 30% discount on sale items). Very heavy, thick fabric, good construction, and an excellent, slim cut. I bought it mostly on impulse expecting to return it but it was a really pleasant surprise when it showed up today.
