The whole prejudice against MIC is silly.  China has the most sophisticated manufacturing (mass and otherwise) industry in the world today.  With ew exceptions, there is essentially nothing that is made in Japan, England, France, the US, etc... that cannot be made as well or better in China.  The range of goods that come out of China span from terrible to amazing quality. And of course, the phrase "MiJ quality" is completely nonsensical.  Japan produces a lot of crap as...
I'd disagree with the first statement.  It's really one of the earlier Japanese tech-fashion brands that made it into the US market, and even then, it was a fashion/tech brand, with familiar silhouettes (remember the rider?) in tech fabrics.  it's much too much in the vein of athleisure (apparently now rebranded as athluxury) to be "CM", which, to my mind, is really very classic silhouettes in classic fabrics.  Nanamica is as close to that as a Jil Sander stretch poplin...

The Nikes and Supremes are exceptions, but a lot of guys try to flip much less desired brands.
The discount would be problematic. And yes, the price and minimums needed. to make it worthwhile for all parties were also worries. I personally love her stuff, but the fact is that regular season preorders present issues - there are very small windows to make significant minimums, which add a significant amount of stress.
You could probably order from Deborah.  We had originally thought about doing a small preorder program, but it didn't quite pan out.  If there is enough interest, I could revisit it.  But in the meantime, it's possible that she could scale up a size for you.   Otherwise, maybe Hackett? https://www.mrporter.com/en-us/mens/hackett/mayfair-suede-bomber-jacket/777196 Probavly a better fit for you than APC.
If you want to go lux, why not go with a true leather luxury brand like Hermes or Valextra.   http://www.valextra.com/en-us/small-leather-goods/wallets/   Parker Pierpont, an affiliate, handsews wallets, and was taught by a Hermes craftswoman: https://www.pierpontleather.com/collections/the-grizzly-collection/products/grizzly-minifold-gris-vachetta   He does custom work as well.   And Bea of April in Paris actually was his...
