    It may be boring as I admitted when I posted, but that's a huge stretch. Is hard to get subtle details that make things interesting like the wax treatment, "destroyed details", and twisting, which you can kinda see.


    If outlandish is what you want...wait for my package that's incoming.


    I'm in no way making fun of uncontrol, because I know that shit must have fucking sucked......but after reading about mis-sizing on certain pieces and same-brand-blatant-sizing-inconsistencies I don't think I could ever make a large proxy order from another country. Not that I probably every would unless it was some giant wooden crate from candada or some shit. But I just wanted to say that, that thought really scares me and when I read "wait for my package" it made me think..

    I've been doing it for a while, and now I have been buying retail so it's easier to get measurements from multiple sites. Plus sellers on auction sites do a good job at listing measurements. julius is brain dead easy to figure out cuz I'm size 2 across the board for the most part.

    Japan, ignoring my aesthetic offers a ton of options the US doesn't which is why I prefer buying stuff from there. Plus it is cheaper than buying stuff in the US. I am wearing $1000 dollar jeans, which cost me $416 total ordering bnwt from Japan.

    Yeah dude, it's especially bad when the sellers measure items weirdly or whatever. I bought a pair of pants that had a listed 81cm waistline, but when I measure them at home I got 76cm. That's a pretty big difference and it happened on a few items. I'm not sure how the measurements vary so widely.

    However, despite losing a lot of money, I'll keep proxying simply because I absolutely cannot buy what I want outside of Japan. It just can't be done. And considering most stores in Japan won't even let you try things on, it's no wonder the auction scene is so good there.

    Headphones and beanie combo ruin it Lane. Get some tats and lose the stoner headgear and you wil be golden for minimalist goth. Not the best pic but I can attest that Julius jeans are incredible in real life and yes are not far from 1k at US retail. Some better pics courtesy of Sq4you: http://www.styleguise.net/forums/ind...ndpost__p__189
