    Any of you US peeps ever make an $800+ purchase from Japan or Europe? Curious how much you got stung for on duties

    That’s assuming he has a lot of followers on IG. Lots of scammers on eBay too, so doing a BIN guarantees payment

    If I were you i'd just chuck them up on ebay with a lower BIN and see if anyone bites. You'll take a loss but at least you'd recoup some of your money back.

    Resale value is subjective. Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay when it comes to the second hand market. I know it's a cliche but it's true. I still see brands I like up on ebay where the seller is charging an over-inflated price and their item sits for months and months. With that said, i'd say that most product, especially denim, will lose 30-50% of their value, unless it's a highly sought after grail item.

    WH is doing the same thing essentially. If people start filing complaints with the AG's office he'll definitely know about it. I mean, he keeps posting sad trombone face pics on his IG account complaining about paying customers that are complaining about not getting their stuff. Not very professional imho. He seems to like talking about how quality takes time and that he's a one man operation. Ande Whall was a one man brand that did everything and in a timely fashion. The difference being that Ande took a sensible business approach to orders. He'd get a roll, make a limited number of denim from that roll and then get his jeans to customers. WH seems to make false promises and then has the audacity to take pot shots at customers that have been waiting a long time for product. If he can't deliver product then he shouldn't be in business. It's a Ponzi scheme. It's only a matter of time before sh*t hits the fan and he closes up shop.

    For me it's any moto jacket with a band collar. I'm not a motorcyclist so i'd feel like a poser. However, R&H has a Flat Head leather jacket with a standard collar that I think I could rock, even though it's technically a motorcycle jacket.
