  1. That ship done sailed.
  2. My conversations with a Levi's rep one time indicated there really was no plan for the LVC line in Australia. When it did sell it was in a 'capsule' style format, at a single selected location, and in limited quantities. That said, Maple seem to have had it for a while and in quantities that on the surface don't appear all that limited. It all indicates that it's of very low priority for them in this market.

    I sent yours out same day as Marcus' pair if i recall correctly. Shipping routes to CA from Aus are quicker so you should have yours shortly!

    I thought that was you...
  5. Just my 2 cents on this, as you all know i'm on Sufu from time to time... I could probably talk about this for pages but i'll keep it brief, as much for my sake as yours. kicks79 is right on a couple of points here, the retail scene is definitely feeling it right now, and it's essentially like you need to be on sale more or less permanently just to be able to have any chance of just even staying afloat, let alone thrive - and that's no way to be. Combine a premium product that has wholesale prices that seemingly increase season after season, with a consumer that consistently wants things cheaper & cheaper and there'll be problems sooner rather than later. Add in the fact that the denim scene is still somewhat of a niche market over here and things get tricky. We would have loved to have brought more from our brands, and even more brands, but it's easier to move a $275 pair of jeans than it is a $275 Japanese flannel shirt... if you see what i mean. In terms of GSD we could have kept going and stuck it out longer, but surveying the landscape we had to question whether that would actually be the right call, after all we both have families to look after and contribute to. It is disappointing not to be able to continue doing what we we're doing, but the conditions need to be right in order for that to happen, and after having spoken to our customers (both new & old) during the last 4 days worth of closing sales we feel we made the right call.
  6. Try the sale thread
  7. I've managed to squeeze myself back into my 1109xx and have been giving them some wear so will post up pics at some point when it's worthwhile. But i agree on the denim, very nice feel and texture.
  8. "The difficulty with winter weather is that I end up with, like, three variations on the same outfit." You say that like it's a bad thing....
  9. Looks like a good fit to me!
  10. Nah. Was 4 days to Sydney so double to Germany isn't that much of stretch, especially in the lead up to Xmas time when the mail volumes explode.
  11. Sorry Ande - all gone. Though i'm sure you could use a drop right about now.
  12. Ande checked in as ok on Facebook thankfully. Haven't heard from my brother yet who's there at the moment though he's further south so should be fine.
  13. It's solid work as always. I went with just the denim pocket bags as extra pimping, but Ande threw in a selvedge fly too just for kicks! Even though i own a denim store now, and can take my pick of what we carry, i'm sad this'll be the last pair of Ande's i can get - will have to hold on to those 15oz Cobras i don't fit, just in case i lose a few inches...
  14. You got some black ones didn't you? As of this morning Ande was just about to get started on the last two pairs of black ones so i'm guessing yours were in there.
  15. Got mine this morning
