yeap.. for that kindda price i rather go and buy from cultizm and its still cheaper (and u'll be having both vintage and selvedge too) plus shipping...

but then again... some people wont mind paying as much as long as they can get a nice fit as for ordering online... u have to guess ur size...

does the custom tax for bringing in a pair of denim online?


Added on September 18, 2011, 1:36 pmbtw what are the differences between vintage and non-vintage denim?

levis vintage = reproduction from the past levi's denim... usually with the big E on the tag (LEVI'S not Levi's). and mostly the levi's vintage is made from selvedge denim.

i've taken that from cultrizm website.

as for the tax.... well i cant say anything about tax since i never got taxed before (the good thing about posting at my company's address lol.) thou ive encountered some of the forumers here said being taxed but im not sure how much....

btw another thing u need to know is cultrizm is from europe means they will deduct their good about 19% (refer here). and so far ive calculated that i never paid the retail price eventhou plus shipping.
neat huh?

the delivery? last time i ordered on Wednesday evening and i got my package on friday evening (DHL delivery that is....)
*
Wow bro, the shipping is fast. 2 days only?

i thought dry organic embo is hard to break in? anyways.... why u need a hot soak? hot soak usually shrink ur denim.....
correct me if im wrong.... anyways... u only wore like 1 1/2 months....  give it more time... 3-6 month at least....
*
yah very hard to break in, after wearing 1 1/2 months only can see some light fading on knee cap area, the honeycombs at the back no fade at all. but the pair of jeans still have the shiny surface.

The reason i want to soak is cuz it's getting a little bit dirty and smelly.

it will break in beautifully if you really "wear" it "hard", try a year bro  flex.gif if smelly, put in the freezer or hang it a day under the sunlight  biggrin.gif
unlike the fast fading nudie, thr process in organic is slow, but the results is great because of the very deep blue color indigo in the organic cotton
*
Thanks for your advice bro, after listening to your advice, I will try to bear with it...

Does wearing hard means jumping and running while wearing them?

Yes they do have very dark indigo color.
