^ Definitely correct about darts not working on patterned shirts. That's not a problem for Oli, though, as if my memory serves me correctly, he only ever gets shirts in plain colours.
 Don't like them, personally. Unless you've got a huge drop, it seems to me that it should be possible to get a slim, well-fitting shirt without the need for side darts. 
 Interesting - a mechanical, digital watch. At the risk of sounding sacrilegious and being burned at the stake, the numerals remind me a bit of those old bedside clock radios with the "flip" numbers:  
  Surprised that it's that much, but I suppose with the AUD$ in the doldrums, it's to be expected. Land's End, like a number of other places, calculates shipping cost based on the value of the shipment, rather than the weight, which is a bit frustrating if you're ordering something light but reasonably expensive, such as ties. Here's their table of international shipping costs (in USD$): http://www.landsend.com/customerservice/shipping/online/other-countries/  Value of...
 Yep, it's happening for me, too.
  I did a bit of an explanation over in the Kamakura thread a while back on how to order using the Japanese site: http://www.styleforum.net/t/333221/kamakura-shirts-madison-ave-store/1245#post_7994545 Of course, it's a bit out of date now that they don't ship overseas, but I hope that it still provides some assistance to anyone wishing to order from the Japanese Maker's Shirt site. 
 Can't do that anymore, unfortunately - they stopped international shipping from the Maker's Shirts site a few weeks ago.
  Oli, if you're unhappy with them, I think that you can send them back to CT any time in the first three months, regardless of whether they've been washed and/or worn. At least, that used to be CT's policy - they may have changed it since it's been a few years since I bought anything from them.
 I don't know whether they'll produce the Lindrick again for RL, but C&J does make a very similar boot in dark brown shell cordovan called the Skye II. It's almost identical to the Lindrick but it has a heel counter, whereas the Lindrick doesn't, and it doesn't have the punched seam across the ankle, whereas the Lindrick does.  http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/skye-2-darkbrown-cordovan 
   It's probably just because of that damned carpet that SG refuses to get rid of!
