They probably ordered it from 2nd in Japan. As far as I know BiG doesn't have Sams with arcs.


Things have changed, Levi's doesn't seem to be that interested in going after the arcs any more, plus I think Samurai changed their arcs enough to stay out of trouble here in the US. Starting this year, Samurai is even going back to the regular yellow arcs on at least some of their models. As far as I know, no Samurai retailers anywhere remove the arcs and tab any more.

Not because I don't like them, but 2 things: I have a pair of Imps I am going to wear instead, and the leg opening is too small for my liking, and there is only one pair of shoes I would wear with these. I like to wear my redwings with my jeans.

BiG^ but hearing from a lot of people here, it's better to get off Rakuten. slightly cheaper, fast shipping, and you can get arcs and tabs

There are pros and cons to ordering from Rakuten as opposed to a US vendor.

Pros:
1. Better selection of Japanese brand items
2. Usually slightly cheaper, especially with rewards points system
3. Fast shipping

Cons:
1. Often not possible to exchange or return if you screw up sizing
2. Hidden costs (CC currency exchange fees, customs fees on items from Rakuten stores that don't ship using EMS, charges for hemming)
3. Worse communication due to Rakuten stores not speaking English as a first language

If you know exactly what you are getting, or if the item you want isn't available in the US, then Rakuten is a good idea. If not, then you are probably better off going with a US retailer like BiG.

right on for the heads up bro. It was kinda hard for me to choose whether to order it from BiG or 2nd. That'll prolly help me make my decision

Pretty sure that those are indigo, they look blue where the honeycombs have begun to fade.
