Webstore doesnt restock- occasionally they might rotate old stock and a couple pieces may pop up but its unlikely. Webstore updates every monday at 8pm pst
Kerchiefs sold out instantly- not sure if shinoda is confused. There weren't models on the webstore (only kofu down) and those in the exhibition and at omotesando sold out day 1.
Its actually pretty common but moreso with oversized garments. They also do 101 and 103 in 0 for unisex or really small men. 0 is about as rare as 5, just not a lot made

Looks fantastic but sizing looks to run huge, I would be a small (?) according to measurement chart. That and the prices seem high for luxire goods considering they are usually price leaders for MTM-type stuff. Would love to see how it stacks up to Falcon but dont have money to gamble at this point in time.
I think the caption was taken a little out of context. Ruco had worn those for years before they went on a hike. The welt is handsewn to the upper but the sole is glued on 90% of models (sans things like poundmaker which have stitching through the sole) to allow easy replacement. This isn't unheard of for this type of boot, they are fashion boots afterall. Most of the modern hiking boots use a lot of machine stitching and synthetic materials which tend to perform better as...
