In Australia you can get an "abn" for quite cheap which says you have a business then you can claim tax back. but I guess you need an income on that to claim.

maybe for a nominal fee you can call the Heavy Weight an advertising biz and the comps the ultimate grass roots campaign . . .  then instead of trademarking Heavy Wait no i mean Weight, you can go the route of maybe a LLC or something else small, just so you can write off some items.

This is all hear-say & internet speak, so take it with a grain of salt but, in the States you can have a small biz and as long as it turns a small profit once every 3 or so years the folks usually leave you alone. It can't hurt to look into it & you are in pretty unchartered territory so for the most part you can write your own rules.

Oh and i'm sure i sound nothing like mini as i'm an angry man & she's a pleasant lady  ;)

on topic, NY for a meet just cause i like to show up when time allows & make fun of people from abroad

Thanks Todd, but it doesn't really need me to be there. If it ends up in NY or Tokyo I will be there, if it ends up in SF I will try my hardest to be there.

Also, just to add, please don't vote if you have no intention of going. I have this horrible image of struggling my ass off for the next year to get to SF because 25 people wanted to meet there, only to find there are actually 6 folks who made it.

I apologize in advance if this is posted somewhere and I am missing it, but what timeframe are we looking at? Like tentative dates, or even the month would help. That's as (if not more) important than the city for me.

End of July/ beginning of August 2014. Almost exactly a year away.

I'm getting it in peoples heads this early as I assume that some of you guys are like me, i.e not rich, have families and real world jobs and responsibilities etc....

Not that I'm in the competition, but I wanted to interject for y'all's consideration that San Francisco is fairly cool in August. It would be a great choice weather wise for a summer heavyweight denim meetup.

I picked NYC, but I'm slightly biased living here and all.

Thanks for this, Mega. You definitely have the right idea by starting early. I really didn't want to vote for SF because I thought that would be selfish living in California; but twin is right about NYC in late July/August. It's hot. And it's humid. I will still hold off on voting, and leave the verdict to those who are actually competing in the HWDC (I rotate too many pairs to enter; love my MBBs, though!), but my entirely unofficial vote would be SF, as well.

I suggest adding this to the top post in bold perhaps. Will stop people voting first (like me ;D )

is there a reason for the chosen dates (July/August)?
sry to ask, but just want to know if it's just the case cuz those dates are good for you or if you guys have anything special planed or if there's something special happening in those months?

if not an earlier, not so hot date/month would be cool as well, eh? :)
