small questions thread (use before making a new thread!)

Recommended Posts

Anyone in the US who has ordered from nittygritty care to comment on your experience with customs fees?  

 

Were you charged? If so, how significant were the additional import duties?

Every single APC piece (maybe except jeans) I regretted buying. Boxy, weird silhouette. OK material. 

 

You live in ON. Why don't you go to Haven or Nomad and cop something on sale?

Got a couple of APC knits I've over the years and actually have one from years ago that is the same as the one you posted. 

 

I guess the wool is quite soft but I wish the sweaters were a bit more sturdy. The neckline on one of mine (the same as the one you posted) lost its shape after a few wears... and the others also don't seem to keep their shape as well as they should. 

 

Wouldn't buy anymore from APC. Check out Arpenteur and Howlin - some of the better wool sweaters I've got are from them.

What's the best proxy service now? Been hearing mixed things about both Sharp and Suto lately.

 

If it makes a difference, I'm in Europe.

What's the consensus on the quality of Oak (NYC)'s in-house line? I'm seeing some nice looking clothes for a reasonable price, but I'm a little worried that at that price point it may be a Fabrixquare/Zara type situation.

I have some very old Desert Boots I got when I was 15. I still wear them from time to time they look fine except for the sole. Can I take them to a cobbler and have them resoled? Also, what kind of sole should I get?

 

Thanks.

My last proxy from suto arrived with the box mangled up and 3 items missing from the order. I've been trying to contact them for the past two weeks about getting a partial refund and they've been ghost for a little over a week.

They didn't include the items.

 

I had previously asked them to send me a photo of all my items together prior to shipping, in which the missing items were present in the photo.

 

After delivery I let them know items were missing, they claimed I didn't purchase anything else, so I sent them their own photo LOLz

Jesus, might have to do that as well then lol

 

only issues I've had to date are them not responding for 2-3 hours to a bidding inquiry and purchasing an item after I told them to cancel the order 2 days prior.  

This seems to be an actual issue though.  Hope you get your shit, man.

pretty sure im a 41 in rick boots. theres a 42 available now. will they be too large? outsole measurements seems to be okay, just a tad larger than my comfort spot.

^what's the consensus on boot sizing? (have no idea)

I usually wear 8.5-9 (see shoe sizing discussion thread) and went w/ a 42.  Toe box is big so there's room there but otherwise fits well.

need opinions.  finally got my geller dip dye.

is it supposed to fit slouchy and oversized like this?  or is it simply too big?

Sux mayne... But to answer your q monnitoff I'd definitely recommend fromjapan. Fairly easy to use, don't have to bother with e-mailing or getting into contact with Japanese dudes, it's all automated. You can set it to bid snipe too. My two recent proxies were ridiculously smooth and arrived in roughly a week's time.

Yeah, it's supposed to fit slouchy and oversized, but I think it's a little too much arm stacking in your case. If it helps, I sized down a size on my dip dye and it fits fine everywhere except the torso's a tad cropped. So take that for what you will

have always been told geller is supposed to fit a bit oversize.

I personally think the fit on that sweat looks good
