As for sizing, there are at least three factors with each season: 1. The size is based on Daiki. He is the medium, every season.

What might help bring some light on the whole EG exclusivity deal, EG has a policy (don't know if it's a policy or part of the contract) to sell to only a handful of shops in each area (maybe so that the shops don't have to compete with each other too much).

Wonder how similar they are to the Newton shirts from FW06 (first EG shirt I ever purchased was the FW06 Newton from the long gone American Rag in SF).
