There's a South2 West8 sweatshirt poncho that looks kind of fun, real cheap on rakuten if anyone's interested   http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/greedkobe/item/281311y-068997/
 I haven't bought from alpoa in particular before, but I have bought from stores in Japan.  I use http://www.fromjapan.co.jp/ for a proxy.  Always found them reliable. Brad T made a super helpful guide on proxying stuff from Japan - might be interesting if you haven't done it before http://harajuju.net/Topic-Buying-From-Japan
 Yeah, whatever size you get they're intended to be loose in the chest, but the sleeves aren't that long - I'd go by the lengths.  I'm 5'10" with slightly lanky arms so if I get one it'll be an M or possibly one of the larger Smalls. Alpoa still has a couple left in a S and XS if you want a look http://store.alpoa.jp/?pid=80018499

 Retail in Japan is 60,000 Yen / $575.  Probably be nearer 850 USD at Haven.  Kind of annoyingly expensive, but yeah would definitely be worth a proxy if you were going to get it. The older season model was about third less (40,000Y) but maybe cutting the body short and adding the ribbing at the bottom helped push the price up?  I've noticed the rebuild fatigue pants are more expensive this season too so maybe some of its across the board.  [[SPOILER]]    I've been...
 The pic of the m-65 x ma-1 jacket is from Haven's blog from a few months back. http://havenshop.ca/store-cats/previews/buyers-log-ss14-nyc-market-week-highlights-part-one/  They haven't got their Needles delivery in yet but I'd keep an eye on their site if you're interested.  Its an awesome piece.
 Yeah I see what you mean for sure.  They don't look as spliced and diced as some the other Rebuild line stuff.  On the other hand the cut, unstructured shoulders, lapel shape etc. all looks very much like other Needles tailored jackets (like the mainline arrow jacket and peak lapel blazer of seasons past) as apposed to whatever you might happen find at the thrift store.  So I think they are maybe more subtly taken apart and re-tailored to Needles-ify the cut?  As well as...
Rebuild Harris Tweed jackets for F/W'14 - there have been tweed jackets from Needles in the past (Harris Tweed arrow jackets for example) but this is the first time there have been Rebuild ones I think                         
I won this sulphur dye utility shirt from SS13 the other day on Yahoo japan auctions, to add to my small but growing collection of Needles         Needles rebuild shawl collar jacket is one of my absolute favorite pieces in my wardrobe  
^ love those zipper pants - so many different ways of wearing them too digital mountain has them, v tempting: http://www.digital-mountain.net/shopdetail/000000002225/  Hmm not many, unless some new places start carrying it for SS15.  Nepenthes NY will likely have it, and The Bureau Belfast had Rough and Tumble for the first time in SS '14 so hopefully will do for next summer too.  As far as japanese stockists Eggplant.jp had some nice ss14 pieces.  Other than the ones...
