I remember when I was looking at the leaked Phaeton pricing back in early June something didn't seem right. P23A-DS was much more expensive than J56-S. P23A had a listed price of 194,400 Yen. Assuming your standard Japanese markup of 75%, that translates to $1000 and if you add VAT to that it'll be close to $1200.

The good news is that J56-S had a listed price of 132,000 Yen which by the same math translates to $680 without the VAT.

Ugh I guess Phaeton was lowballing that one. Which stockist is this pricing from?

Any idea why the price of the J28 is so high this season? Wayback machine has the original at 950 euros, and Phaeton and Peggsandson pricing suggests that it'll be 1350 euros this time around. I get that it's been a few years and there is way more hype this time around, but that its more than the PB jackets that just released seems a bit odd to me (maybe PB isn't as fancy as I think).

Still curious about P23-S pricing, doesn't look like it was listed in the Phaeton pricing leak.

If production issues/labor laws changing are true, then maybe they're pricing it higher to accommodate for smaller runs.

Technically, if E decides to charge us 10 bitcoins for jawns and no other currency.. he can do so at his discretion.

Since we're making GoT references...

Chaos ACRNM isn’t a pit. Chaos ACRNM is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.” - Littlefinger

My mentality going into this drop. Winter is coming... for all our wallets.

Just want to preface any advice we give as not legal advice—we are just guys on the internet. As importer you're liable for all the duties and fees at the end of the day. With regard to the HS codes given, you guys have to make sure that the items described fit the definition of recreational performance outerwear: (5 of the following)

Insulation for cold weather protection;
 pockets, at least one of which has a zippered, hook and loop, or other type of closure;
 elastic, draw cord or other means of tightening around the waist or leg hems, including hidden leg sleeves with a means of tightening at the ankle for trousers and tightening around the waist or bottom hem for jackets;
 venting, not including grommet(s);
 articulated elbows or knees;
 reinforcement in one of the following areas: the elbows, shoulders, seat, knees, ankles or cuffs;
 weatherproof closure at the waist or front;
 multi-adjustable hood or adjustable collar;
 adjustable powder skirt, inner protective skirt or adjustable inner protective cuff at sleeve hem;
 construction at the arm gusset that utilizes fabric, design or patterning to allow radial arm movement; or
 odor control technology.


These HS codes aren't fungible for other jackets unless they contain a very specific set of features or materials. For example, woven garments are handled under different codes than non-woven garments (looking at you J63-PB and SXX-C/BR/AK) as are woolen or down garments. Additionally, it's imperative that you try and change the codes while in transit otherwise you may be forced to contest the tariffs after the fact. At that point, where you have to open a dispute and ask for overpaid amounts from the United States Government, it's better to just pay the amounts rather than petition for refund.(I've got some money back but it took forever.)

While I talk a lot of shit, the specification sheets are quite useful with regard to material information and describing the garments so as to qualify them for the particular codes.
