People were asking w2c one of those japanese coat things this guy is wearing.
Was thrifting today and saw some karate shirts or something they use in martial arts and they look really similar these.
right now, i wear caftans, tea length circle skirts that hit at my waist, and a few huge pashminas since it's summer. f/w i wear one of my many neutral-toned cardigans layered with thin, long sleeved hoodies and maxi skirts or black skinny jeans with cozy socks bc socks
tl,dr i think i'm doing it right but i'm not sure if i'm legit fashionable or not
Nothing quite as comfy as being nxtlvl
bottom is impossible to get in the states though
that's why I want some more comfycore vans and less same old asian inspo we see everyday
more fit pics, more vans
this looks terrible. it just looks like she threw on a whole bunch of layers that don't go together. the pants are horrible, and the bag doesn't go at all.
>beanie hat over hoodie
This, we're all missing the bigger picture here. You don't just dress comfy, you live comfy.
>Comfy to the max
Anyone knew where to cop shoes and cardigan? The cardigan is probably thrifted but it would be nice to know where to find something similiar
Sutocorp, sufu has a thread on it
that's all :-)
It seems like most of the kiddos on /fa/ now (or at least the summer kiddos, idk) are too intimidated to use a proxy service with their mom's money or something
Either way, even though you save a lot of money not buying shit like Kapital from Haven, you'll still be paying more money than what a lot of people are comfortable with unless they treat fashion as a hobby instead of a means of getting attention from girls or w/e
Here's the sufu thread btw, it seems people only run into trouble whenever they try to bid on something on japanese auction sites and the seller does something stupid
If you've never bought internationally before, remember that your country is probably going to have some customs duty tax, so make sure to figure that in
Not rly, it's a straightforward process.
The only tips I'd have to offer are basically just warnings like make sure you're prepared for customs taxes as well as the sutocorp service charge. You'll see something for 20,000 JPY (which is just a little under 200 USD), and in the United States that would mean you wouldn't get a duty charge because they only charge if the product is greater than or equal to 200 USD. However, you'll still have to pay 8 percent of that to Sutocorp. But customs only cares about the value of the item being shipped, so it may not get duty charges. It just depends who is working at customs that day. However, you always need to be prepared to pay that duty tax just in case.
Regardless of what customs and sutocorp charge you, it'll be cheaper than buying Japanese designer stuff from places like Haven or Union Los Angeles. The mark up is seriously retarded. I remember seeing a White Mountaineering scarf being sold for 150 JPY in Japanese stores. That same scarf is still being sold at oki-ni, and it was originally being sold for 440 dollars. :-/
Google Brad-T's how to buy from japan guide on Harajuju a million times until you are comfortable with the whole process. My personal recommednation would be to use Jauce. Never had a problem with them and everything is easily explained and outlined. Just got to pay proxy and shipping fees(local and int) and bank-deposit fees. Also if using yahoo japan auctions BEWARE of fake goods. DO research on whetehr fake versions of what you are interested in are being sold. I bought some fake visvim sunglasses because I bidded without doing research
