    Ah, bummer. Makes sense though, seemed too good to be true (and so it was).

    Drew, is Ando Shoes a famous brand in Japan? What is their reputation if they have one?

    I've heard of Ando, actually. Some interesting things, and from the article I read and things I saw, I'd put them up against anything people beast on here, barring the big 4-digit British shoes. Price points up to about 50,000Y for the nicer boots, so definitely affordable. I don't have their number or address anymore though, that was in a magazine I threw away long ago.

    You guys should be taking advantage of Moto's boots though, I think I can get you them - I've heard of people on here running into problems getting them through proxy or being rejected for them, but I was over there before talking to them and they seemed willing to sell me limited quanities, at least. Mrs TOJ has a good way of talking to people. Moto's boots are about 70,000Y and they are fantastic, some of the nicest pull-on boots I've seen. I will be getting a pair for myself sometime.

    yeah the darker colored derbies are definitely in the handmade Augusta/CCP'ish realm sometimes, and the boots are amazing. They will go further stylistically than both the gothninja shit or workwear, definitely, they really apply to neither wholeheartedly, and yet some styles look good with both. rare gems.

    I lost hope in both American and Korean economy so Im just waiting for Japan's total collapse when 10000 jpy would be like 10 bucks :hide:
    As for Dayton I am going to set the factory on fire if it doesn't finish the boots by the end of this week. 4months waiting for defect and another 4 months of waiting rofl

    Geez, when did the YEN get so strong or the CAD get so weak. Can vouch for the loopwheeler, had one proxy to me years ago.

    ^ Yen is slowly suffocating itself IMO.

    By the way thank you Drew for Kopblocking me from further purchase by introducing me to the moto's boots. I am saving up money starting from next year for a pair by the end of 2013 (part of new year's resolution) :D

    That's mine, can't wait til it comes in. :drool:

    Loopwheeler is so dope, I've worn the hell out of the black zip hoody and a grey crewneck that I bought 4 years ago. The more you wash and wear them, the softer and more comfortable they get. Like Drew said, the quality is AMAZING.

    I just wanted to say that impolyt is a great proxy. He proxied a Juun J coat a while back and he was great to deal with.

    How much are handmade celluloid frames in Japan? I picked up a pair in Korea and they ran me 500 or so. Wondering if they're cheaper in Japan.

    They start at 20,000 and go up, I think most stay under 30,000Y i believe. They're gonna be cheaper than Korea though, I think, because back then they used to charge about double in Korea for those (or any other imports)
