If anyone in the UK is looking for a cheap option, Libertys of London are currently having a sale in their denim section, and there are a few pairs of Naked and Famous Weird Guy Big Slub jeans going for £80, and they might have been reduced further since then. They're a 17 oz denim.

I'm not sure what sizes are available. I think that I saw a 32 or 33 and 36.

For the event where you do something either good or bad, what if the bad thing was illegal? Would that affect anything?

If the deed is not illegal, morally or socially inacceapteble, it's no bad deed and you should opt for the good deed instead. Don't be a pussy.

I hope this isn't a stupid question, but can I assume that there is only one Mazak option as all the above are nickle or brass options?

Belt ordered....this is going to be good! Can't wait to see what else the HWDC team has in store for us!

Thanks for putting this together, that is a great price for a very nice looking belt, I think it will wear in nicely along with the 25oz denim!

Damn, that number 9 double prong looks thick as fauk. I wasn't going to get a belt, now you got me thinking.

Mega-

I know I asked via PM, but perhaps the answer will help some of my fellow Yanks...

What can we expect as far as customs/duties when purchasing denim/belts from the UK?

I'm completely naive on the subject.

Depends on the country you live in.

Go to google and search for: ''Import costs your country'' and you should find it. There should be a webpage from the government that explains everything.

Here is an example of the Dutch Customs webpage with their rules on import costs: CLICK

There are ways around it, which obviously I cannot condone or be a party to (;-)) such as marking a lower value on the package. This does, however, negate any shipping insurance for lost packages.

Also, if your MBB's and belt ship together, they will be sent via ups by Iron Heart.

I apologize if this has already been answered, but I combed through the thread and I don't think so. When will Iron Heart bill us for the contest jeans? I may need to shuffle some funds so I don't overdraft.

When the jeans are complete, around the end of Feb / beginning of March.

Happen to know if these are a slim fit? Or a close to body fit? I may need the XXL too!

Will ask and report back, I think they will be a standard straight fit though.

Indeed, listen to mega. Tax evasion is wrong :ph34r:

No intentions of shorting my Gov't of any rightfully owed taxes/duties...Im all for paying my fair share(which is often way more than expected :( )

I just was curious what to expect. I collect custom folding knives, and while I haven't bought or sold internationally, I've heard some horror stories.(and not due to the nature of the item, just stuff being held in customs, high duties etc..)

Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

I'm psyched to get started on this comp, and seeing all the progress on everyone's jeans. I'm trying to decide on a boot purchase to wear in with the new MBBs.

Thanks again Mega for answering my noobish questions!
