Where else can I get second hand Our Legacy and Norse Projects besides Grailed, eBay, and TheRealReal? Any recommendations for other places online?

I've been surprised at yjp and rakuten having a pretty solid selection. Rakuten feels really pricey, but they are running a 1111 yen off thing right now so if you chance upon something soon.

There is a facebook group that's more european than american that has a pretty good current of goods.

Not seconhand but yoox is pretty good for Our Legacy: I got white first cut jeans for $55 recently, and it doesn't get picked up much so easy to see it go down in sales section quite a bit.

that's pretty much all I've got. Ebay I think is definitely the best in terms of steal potential.

Thanks, I'll definitely add Yoox to my rotation of sites I check... I'll give Y!JP and Rakuten a shot too. If you can let me know the name of the FB group that'd be cool!

Would I look dumb wearing hiking boots around metropolitan socal in our 3 months of winter? Be honest.

Edit: the boots in question

Does anyone know the difference between these two Margiela Replica style codes: S37WS0332SY0646 and S57WS0153SY0646? They appear to be the same exact sneaker but I can't find any info confirming that fact.

have zero experience with anything from uniqlo that isn't stretch jeans or £5 tees, so what's the craic with their down outerwear? the seamless down stuff from this season in particular i guess...is it warm/durable enough to chuck over standard business attire for indefinite waits at remote bus stops in northern england (by which i mean ~0c-5c temp, windy, light rain/snow etc)?

For people who frequent grail/ebay selling a lot, what are your best option for economic international shipping? US to Europe and Canada mostly.

Avoid boxes if you can. USPS mail bags are way cheaper

i reuse the plastic packaging of old shipments i've received. i just make sure to carefully open them when i receive them. when i have to ship something i can easily tape the old plastic bag thingie shut again. never had issues with my shipments arriving at the destination. costs nothing extra and is better for the environment (i think, as you're not buying new plastic bags all the time).

i got a qlo comfort jacket back in...2010 or so. Was an attempt to try and wear a blazer casually. This may all be informed by the fact that it was a black jacket and that I was significantly less mature/refined in taste back then, but any attempts to wear it casually backfired, as it was detailed pretty similarly to your standard blazer, and any attempt to wear it something like formally was curtailed by the material. It ended up in a donation pile and I haven't missed it, though the idea of something useful like it hangs out in the back of my head. I have found other options that skip the synthetic fabric that uniqlo favors for that kind of thing.

The main compartment zipper to my visvim 20l broke (hahahah) and it sent me into a bit of a panic about a replacement backpack. Luckily a leather worker in town was able to sew a new zipper so I didn't have to make a decision. But it did make me think if there's any fashion pack with these qualities? I was searching all night and honestly couldn't find anything exactly like what the Lamina offers.

- super padded laptop sleeve, so that it doesn't move at all when you walk. (Like 0 movement, no jiggling whatsoever. I mean seriously Vis bags are a bit overhyped but the stability is really fantastic.)
- 100% waterproof
- exterior water bottle pouch with suspension strap, so that you can walk with a metal bottle with no issues/back pain
- padded "backside" so that it's, again, super stable when walking
- black
- vaguely tech-ish but fairly minimal looking
- coolest of all time

Any suggestions?

I think that it is not. Cowichan, etc., If you prefer a thick knit, how about you? It is cool there is atmosphere!

What are some good, more aggro/combat-y boots? (preferably black or any darker colors) I don't mind docs but I kinda wanna avoid the yellow stitching bc I go to an art school and all you see when you look around.

Finally getting around to selling some things, does Grailed always take the buyers side even if you do everything perfectly like on Ebay? More specific question: is selling a $500 coat to a brand new account who has zero feedback and is on the other side of the world 100% asking to get scammed? I'm too tired to deal with getting ripped off at the moment.

yes. back when i had longer hair my go-to were the goody stay-put hairties. once my hair got really thick i shifted up to the stay-put headbands; stretchy thin headbands that worked nicely as a tie, albeit crossed-over maybe two more times to account for the slack and scale of the headband. doing this won't make it a viable headband anymore though.

at my most intense it was a buff band, and later my grandmother gave me a navy blue woven elastic/cotton blend thing similar to a buff, but with more texture; almost sashiko-like. that was the best, but alas no brand or anything. only that it was made somewhere in west asia or something? i wish i could tell you more
