It’s the beer version of Vodka Revolution!

For non-Brits it’s an awful vodka bar/disco place where they sell umpteen different flavoured vodkas. You used to be able to buy a tray of vodka shots for a tenner (or something like that). The fifth vodka was usually followed by a hasty retreat to the gents to see the previous four come back up...

I’m still waiting on the pair of edo sugar canes I ordered from naoki. Departed April 10th but so far no other updates.

Japan post suspending EMS and airmail to the US starting April 24th.

I’m starting to think I should have just waited and ordered my pair from self edge in May. This has me wondering though...do selfedge etc get their products delivered via japan post/ems? Or perhaps they can use some other courier like DHL.

For what it's worth, re: mass shipments from Japan to US retailers, I got a notification on April 8 that my Lofgrens had been shipped to S&S, which should usually only take a couple of days, and have gotten no updates since then. My guess would be that shops' orders are just as backed up as ours. So it goes.

We generally use private courier (and a private broker) so nothing is delayed to Self Edge.

They won't throw your packages away, you will just get them later I suppose

Haha I know they won’t throw them away, I’m just concerned with things getting lost during all the backup

Don't have much to trade but mail me some Austin East Ciders haha (joking). I miss it so much, the watermelon and blood orange were so good.

 

But the shipping stuff kind of sucks. I have multiple car parts coming from japan that I really need... I knew it would take a bit but damn. Also have a package coming from Poland that has been stuck for a month :sad:.

Oh man, really? I've always thought of Austin East Ciders way too sweet for my liking. The blood orange is the only one I could stomach.

I am definitely more of a dry traditonal cider person but something about the different flavors gets me haha. I tried the pineapple one years ago and it was also great. I also just love watermelon (although I thought blood orange was better), and even though super sweet I enjoyed them haha.

Anyone think a community sales / swapshop thread would be a good idea ? 

Who knows if it would be shut down but Anaccranorm or whatever you call it has had a community sales thread for ages 

( current global situation may make it a bit difficult but if we maybe keep it local enough for the time being it would probably work out 

 

EDIT       Maybe now isn't the best time , after a bit of thought its probably best to keep our homes free of other people's items

Lowercase Industries was a label/sideline belonging to a friend of mine (even this was Made in the USA), He's now the editor/illustrator of Nowthen magazine, a local free mag which you can pick up here and there, ive bought a bit of artwork from him over the years, when we first met back in the late 90's he was still working at his first proper job... a graffic design company in Rotherham which was set up by one of the bell-ends from Jivebunny and the Mastermixes :ph34r:

Nice jive talk MF 

Here’s my little contribution to the ‘grotty old Silas tee’ thread twist.

Agree, that Stussy raglan needs to come out of retirement.
