    as far as i know, you can't actually get a win-win on not being hit by taxes upon import (via marked down parcel value) AND have the retailer refund VAT. as they have already paid VAT during import, for them to get a VAT refund on their end after the sale, they need to produce shipping documents proving the respective marked value and with an address outside the EU. capnpyro mentioned that he wasn't hit with taxes upon import, which i guess means the parcel's value was marked down. wouldn't be possible for them to get a VAT refund in that case. above info was told to me by a friend who used to work in a store in the EU.

    regarding this previous discussion and looking at the current state of things on grailed, perhaps a more effective method would be to just mass-post items at ridiculous prices to, as a chinese saying goes, fight poison with poison and pricing hype beasts out and hopefully making them lose interest after a while

    alright, thanks man. apparat it is then haha

    hi branespload, was hoping you would chime in. i actually did see the preview pics from the showroom you posted a while back, it was actually what pulled my attention and to keep a lookout for the align in the first place, so thanks! when you first posted it, i thought it would be near the position of the apparat, just higher up but still side-front placement. but i guess my main concern is, is the entire cargo compartment of the Align strictly restricted to the out seam (side of the leg) like a traditional cargo, or does it extend to the below-butt/hamstring area. i would imagine it to be difficult to sit down if one puts anything hard or even a mobile phone if it extends even the slightest to the butt/back area taking another close look at the veilance site, and how the seams at the back run, the pocket seems to be mostly right smack on the buttcheek down to hamstring area. i personally dislike putting anything in back pockets be it wallet/phone/keys so if this is basically (and physically/functionally) a back pocket but aesthetically redesigned, then ima have to pass. on hindsight, i guess it makes sense that it is functionally different from the Apparat, would be kind of silly to make two similar 'cargo' pants.

    trying to decide between the align and apparat for summer, but still trying to get my head around the align 'cargo' pocket. from the veilance site, it seems to be a diagonal opening just slightly below and behind the side pockets, but then the last picture shows that you insert your hand backwards? from the pocket opening seam picture, i thought it was a forward entry, making it a cargo pocket just below the regular side pockets. but looking at the picture below with the hand half-in, it seems more like a re-designed back pocket?

    yes the pictures above was what i was referring to. thank you. hope to see it back soon, as I'm still more comfortable with the 'traditional' way of browsing via the sub-forums instead of using the activity stream so the missing 'first unread post' button is quite a big issue for me.

    is there no longer a button in a subforum at the thread that will bring me to the last unread post in the thread? instead of going to the stream and doing all that filter tinkering mentioned above? back then, there used to be a button in front of a thread title that says "Go to first new post" or smth when you hover the cursor over it. and if there are no new unread replies, then this button will not be there. speaking about laptop browser. for mobile, it used to just automatically bring you to the first new post when you click on a thread. now when i visit a sub forum, i have to click on last post, and then scroll up and find my last read post manually, and read back down

    ^ for me, when i dont need my laptop for the day, a messenger fulfills the gap to carry a water bottle, umbrella, wallet (dislike carrying it in pockets), ipod and whatever stuff i might need for the day.
