My recent HW Dog hat and another shirt I bought, I sprayed with lysol just to be safe including the package itself.  Other than that, I knew something was off when I ordered another item on the 3rd of this month and it hasn't moved since then.

Grailed and Ebay sales for clothing seem down too, as clothing purchases obviously isn't a priority right now it seems (unless it's toilet paper or hand sanitizer).  Good luck to anybody here trying to sell their wears right now.

I noticed a few weeks ago that some proxy services are offering free storage facility for your purchases, up until September, so if it's a ltd run or a Yahoo sale you don't have to get all fomo'd up.

I just surfed the Japan reddit forum and they're having complaints about shipments being back logged and delayed shipping due to suspensions.

b_F thanks for actually calling that out, I didn't read the list but I assumed the US was on it now.
If I do place my Warehouse order I'll just expect a longer lead time.

Amazingly, Naoki hemmed and shipped my canes right away through ems. So we’ll see what kind of delay we’re looking at.

What's weird is that I sold a bunch of stuff on Grailed and Reddit back in March, while everyone was panicking and stuff was getting shut down. But I have a few more things for sale which I posted later, which haven't sold after a few weeks of being out there.

I’ve never used Yahoo auctions but just out of interest I’ve been watching some items on there over the last week or so. It’s amazing, there are virtually no bids for any item at all in the categories I’ve been looking at and once the auctions expire, the items are simply re-listed a few hours later for exactly the same price. Fascinating psychology at play here.

In that respect It's the same as ebay used to be regarding fixed price/staring bids before they implemented 'good till cancelled' which saves you having to keep re-listing your item.

The main difference with Yahoo is...

'Auction Extension' = for low starting price where everybody is given the opportunity to bid as much as they like during an indefinate time period (like a real auction) if folks keep bidding the time keeps rolling over until all bidders drop out, so no snipe bargains.

Or

'Early finish' = this is usually for fixed price, where an auction ends early if they have a bid, but it's not like BIN, you can have the only bid for a week or so and the auction will still finish 5mins early to seal the bid if there is no sign of counter bids. I found this out to my detriment when i had a snipe bid all set on a pair of deadstock Levin Scheme and the auction finished 5mins before i had a chance to place it.

You lives, you learns...

How do some of y’all feel about wearing Mickey Mouse focused clothing like what’s been displayed in Japan in the past? I’ve really been on the fence lately in buying some Mickey Mouse work by Velva Sheen. They just did a Japan only collab that looks decent.

Suppose it depends on if you’re a Disney fan. I’m not so wouldn’t wear it, but if you are then do it. That’s a good example. I’m pretty sure Uniqlo have a pretty constant cycle of Mickey tees which are likely cheaper, but guess the quality of the tee won’t be there. 
I wear plenty of stuff that people may think is uncool. Plenty of old heavy metal band tees including completely overdone Motörhead tops worn by lame celebs-  but I like it.

Good god No! (but like unders points out) i fucking hate Disney and that squeeky voiced c**t of a mouse, luckily for me my kid has never been into it either. Disneyland would be my own personal hell.. I would rather spend a week in Guantanamo Bay than spend a single day in that hell hole.

This classic Calvin and Hobbes comic pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject.

I’m usually one to express this sentiment also. I do wear a couple flat head tees which have pretty in-your-face branding, though.

Neal, you need to be more outspoken and stop sitting on the fence mate. If you have an opinion dont be shy , just say it. We won't hold it against you :ph34r:
