    Some for the big-footed women out there (*sigh...*)

    www.barefoottess.com

    www.atlastshoes.com

    www.rosenbergshoes.com.au

    Personally, barefoottess is the best (and most reasonably priced!)

    ZOMG!! I haven't bought new shoes in absolutely ages because I have gigantor feet!! They have my size!!!!

    I'm so wary about shopping for shoes online though, since different shapes can really make a difference. Dyammit! Thanks for those links though, Sam!

    I didn't see this link posted in the threat yet:

    For anyone looking for a place to get dress shirts, there's www.tailorstore.com.

    Relatively inexpensive custom shirts, with more options than you can imagine, and only USD$9 shipping to Japan.

    For general clothing and plenty of school-appropriate smart casual I use http://www.eddiebauer.com I get some other items from http://www.llbean.com/ both ship to Japan.

    Buy large shoes in Japan from http://www.kutsunohikari.co.jp

    Large suits from http://www.kaufmans.com/

    English textbooks from http://nellies.jp

    Get you Windows computer fixed/upgraded by me - seriously!

    I looked up my shampoo on flying pig and it costs 81 dollars a bottle when it is 6 dollar in the US. Ick. I think having family send stuff if I absolutely need it would be better, but I will probably try to bring the essentials I need with me.

    Since when? Flying Pig has a premium on its items, but I have never seen a 1000% premium on them? I'm curious!

    Maybe the currency converter I used was wrong but I'm not lying, that is what I found.

    Doesn't matter. I didn't get an interview.

    I just found this on that site and decided I'd share (warning, grossness):

    http://ec2.images-amazon.com/images/...500_AA280_.gif

    What the hell, it looks like somebody seriously just barfed into a plastic tray and sealed it up to sell to some poor unsuspecting sap. Also I have to use that font at work because this one client is always requesting it, and I hate it, so that makes it somewhat more gross to me, personally.

    www.myus.com let's you shop on US sites that don't ship to Japan. They get your order sent to their office and then ship it to you at affordable rates. Very handy!
