    Are Moto boots still maxing out at size 9.5 US or whatever? Is there anyway to get size 11 US?

    Also you know of any good spots that sell Kato clothing?

    ^size 11 is probably too big in Japan. I think you're right, they go up to about 9.5 or 10.

    Kato is easily available, they advertise heavily in Free and Easy.


    Restir sale is happening now, if you like the fashunz:

    http://www.restir.com/



    I have a couple packages in hand now, gotta weigh them out for an accurate shipping cost, and then I will collect payments and ship them on. First proxy shipping run. :slayer:

    Magazines are available but it's not wise to buy them unless you want them shipped surface. They're just too heavy, a Japanese magazine weighs at least 500g if not almost 1kg @ 300 pages or so. Clothes weigh a lot less, usually - jeans are about 500g and outerwear goes up to about 2-3kg for the heavier stuff usually.

    As it costs about $10 to get into the shipping to start with and goes up from there, you can amortize that cost by getting at least a couple items - that way you don't pay so much just to receive one item. It's more pleasant to pay $40 and open a package with two things for you (no matter how cheap or expensive they may be) than to pay $30 just for one thing, IMO :teach:

    let me know if you guys need help browsing through a website or something.

    wjk extra heavy jersey hoodies are nicer than Loopwheeler hoodies. Mine weighs about 1200 grams which is about 50% heavier.

    Are there any iPhone 4S cases worth buying in Japan? I'm not talking about the cutesy food or anime ones but any well designed/constructed non-bulky cases or bumpers?

    i know I`ll end up paying a premium for butteros in japan but no choice since there isn`t really a retailer in the US that carries them.

    I am looking for a b2904 cusv01 in size 40/us7.

    Well, to be honest - the ones that Japan specializes in are either sword-like or very austere tool knives - they're for specific purposes and require lots of care and proper handling. So, to that, they make a knife here for every purpose - what do you need? There are some very out-there knives....

    I saw an anodized aluminum one that is kind of cool looking, slightly robotic. I can go pick up an iPhone magazine and see what's out there. They have accessories like that aimed at all demographics, so likely, yes.


    Send me an email, we might be able to track them down used or discounted. Somebody else asked about Butteros and he wanted a size larger than they normally sell here, so they were only gonna be available through the official shop, but tons of places have your size.

    hoody or crew? Basic hoody was 17800Y.

    size L was 23" P2P and 33" measured from the back center of the collar to the cuff, like a dress shirt.

    I saw the pants there too, not sure how much they were. Can call tomorrow.

    successfully mailed some items, and proxy bought an Incarnation leather on yahoo! today in the span of two emails. Feel like I'm raiding the ark and sending grails to collectors abroad :slayer: Gonna put on some Indy boots and an A2 jacket.... I wonder who makes a perfectly slim fitting, luxurious version of an A2? :foo:
