it's authentic. i've bought from them before.
they no longer have an english version, (they used to have an ebay store particularly for the english speaking clients. that closed down last season since they no longer have english speaking staff to take orders.)

you can always use google or altavista to translate a webpage for you.
as far as literal machine translation go, they are rather good.
not that they would understand your order...lol...
also... i'm pretty sure they only ship within japan now.

sorry M8

a small amount of dior homme used to be stocked at saks, but that was like, four years ago. i can't see it being a big seller here.
I finally went there on the weekend. There were many other shops, but I did not find anything. The Buffalo Exchange was okay. They actually had a chocolate Muse bag there. It looked new. They did have some good clothes there. I think that was the best shop on that whole strip.

well,
have you ever considered that maybe you are getting bored of the whole club scene in general...you could just be clubbing too often...too much of a good thing.
try finding new things that you might enjoy as well or
alternate your current hobbies around so that they don't become such a bore.

...you could just be growing out of it....


just some friendly advice.

haha! i go out maybe once a month (sometimes not even that when school starts). also, i'm not sure one could consider "clubbing" a hobby. thx for analyzing though.

i'm sure the muse at buffalo exchange was a fake. i've seen tons of fake everything there in the past. i'm pretty sure a superfake could easily get pass the staff of buffalo exhange.

I ended up not going. It might be fake and I would hate to be carrying a fake. O well.

So you decided not to go? The Muse looked so nice in that case! I thought about getting it but I ended up getting another bag. Anyways, the Buffalo Exchange salesperson said that if I wanted to make sure that it is authentic, I have 5 days to return or exchange. She said that they do this so people can get items checked for authenticity. Maybe someone else will buy it.
