Hey man, Shipping is going to be MUCH CHEAPER! the problem was not having a US distributor. I came up with the (simple) idea of having me be the US shipper. So I will be getting bulk orders from Matt from Australia and then will be shipping them out to anyone who orders anything from Nine22. Matt will reiterate this once he drops the new/2nd release of clothing soon. But trust me, that was a major issue that needed to be fixed and we are working on it. It will hopefully be cut in half or so!!! I hope this helps you out and makes you feel better when you place your orders, if you have any other questions feel free to PM me.
