    I proxied a Mr. Olive G-Type Sweat jacket from the Rakuten Store "FamilyStone". Incidently, Rakuten, yes, the company Rakuten Ichiban (so, the entire Rakuten network), will soon be an affiliate, and I believe that they will be offering us discounted proxy services for those stores that are not set up to ship internationally. There will be an official rep who will guide Styleforumites (who are mostly non-Japanese speakers) through ordering online at Rakuten as well. So, for all you guys wanting anything from Inapt peacoats to Eternal 811 jeans to Nepenthes goods you can't find outside of Japan, this will be for you. We will be the first foreign affiliate for Rakuten. Okay, you heard it here first.
    Oh shit. Awesome.

    Yup. There will be an official Rakuten representative on the forum shortly. There will be a pinned thread on which he will post very detailed information on how to order, both directly from stores that ship abroad, and by proxy to those that do not. There will also be information on how to find brands, and a list of links of searches to popular brands, from Eternal to Dope&Drakkar to JohnBull.

    Watch for it...

    Fok.

    Sounds like a major coup that you beat SuFu to a rakuten affiliateship. Can't wait to finally get an Inapt coat!

    just sign up for a rakuten account and get it yourself???

    i've made 3 orders off rakuten no problem without a proxy

    some stores do not ship to USA though, which is where the proxy will be worth it

    but dollar vs yen right now is crap!

    Thanks Jet, a dedication from you warms my heart. Awesome shoes, and the MJ socks are very shnazzy.
