I've been thinking about sending my friend in California off on a little shopping trip to AP in San Fran... but as it's way on the other side of the world and I don't want to send my friend in twice, I'm wondering if there's any way I can know approximately what they have in stock there? Is it the same stock as the webshop? I know with Moitié that some things that are sold out in the webshop are still hanging in shops, so I assume it's the same with AP, but I may be wrong.
My problem is that I don't just want "Print XYZ in such and such a colorway", but I'm looking for a few things in a certain style, just not any one item in particular.
I also need to make sure things fit me, though I trust my friend to guess that, but unofficial measurements would maybe also be helpful. I know how to find official AP measurements on their website, but when you read measurements on the sales comm, it seems that quite often things can be more (or less!) generous than the official sizing (this is why there are so many questions about sizing, I guess! *lol*)
So.. ordering from an SS without knowing the current stock off by heart.. how do you guys do it? ^^
Bonus question: can you order online from BTSSB Paris or do all online orders come from Japan?
