Must have a japanese billing address and a japanese bank account.

No NY Bapemania in sight unfortunately.

NY Bapemania was almost a reality. but the plug was pulled last minute. if bapemania JP is a success then a possible NY version might resurface in about a year.

I heard otherwise; the reason Bapemania is Japan only is because of the ease of shipping the items (shipping is included for each item). It would simply not calculate correctly after taxation, import/export fees, THEN shipping.

if there was a bapemania ny it would be the same bape ny prices since the products will be shipped from ny. same place where bbc clothing are being shipped now. there is no bapemania ny at the moment because the profit margin is not great enough

That's what Mantisfist, Kyotostyles (where-ever he is) and I are for!

Edit: Referring to tuna's post, not Tabby's.

isn't it bad to show your card number online or is that thing not really like a credit card? and if not then why do they even have numbers on em?

Sure because it really costs £50/$100 to produce one tee, try looking at more like £2/$4 and you would be closer on the profit margins.

Yeah, but NYC bape won't be paying that so their profit margins will be less like tuna says. They won't get the goods for the cost price I'm sure and then they will be paying import taxes and shipping on top so he wouldn't be closer to the profit margins by looking at £2/$4 cost price.

I dont think they pay for it, they get the stuff from Bape and then split the profit.

Its not like they are a licensed store like Hideout/Union they are part of Bape.

No it is pretty much like they are a liscensed store, Gimme5 has the rights in the UK as I'm sure you know as is the case with different groups in HK, NYC and I'm sure Taiwan too. If it wasn't like that Nowhere would set the prices but Gimme5 has the free reign to choose as they see fit.

aha that makes sense. I am sure they buy it for a lot less than they sell it for though.

Of course, but as they have the monopoly in Europe this will always be the case which is unfortunate.
