    rakuten is not like eBay. it's like a mall with many different shops. the prices are always the same except some shop has a sale.
    try Vari.
    or www.j-e-a-n-s.net

    vari, yes. j-e-a-n-s.net not.
    but it doesn't matter if the shop is on rakuten or not as long as you can order, right?

    and a pretty severe wash at that, in my experience.

    as for rakuten training-wheels, probably a better idea to go through the borderless portal instead of the open site, cause that way you'll only get to see the international options- and if you're having trouble with the normal rakuten, you should definitely not be trying on proxy services just yet. http://event.rakuten.co.jp/borderless/index_en.html
    spend some time searching around and figuring out how it works- it may be disorienting but it isn't brain surgery. think of it more as a japanese amazon than ebay.

    probably machine rinsed with 50 pairs at the same time, to get rid of most of the shrinkage

    nope. you might get lucky and find a shop that's having a sale, but that's rare and usually a trivial amount (like 5% off). just be grateful that the japanese retailers are cheaper than the western middlemen.

    and as for the wash, yeah, it's for shrinking, both to sell and as in-store demonstrators. not everybody wants to frig about with shrinking their own jeans, which can be an admittedly labourious process. as for fade effect, i'm sure it does, but i have no long term experience with any OWs, and obviously severity of the individual wash will play a big role.
