Most likely using the same shirt manufacturer, I forget who it is these days.I've tried on the khaki Iridescent version and it fit true to size on me.
Totokaelo's men store is now open (TotokaeloMAN) and I stopped by earlier today. They did a great job on the minimalist interior design, and it's thankfully much less cluttered compared to the women's floor upstairs. The selection is a mixed bag though, or at least for me, but MMM, Henry Vibskov, Yohji Yamamoto, Robert Geller, and Saturday NYC seemed like the stronger buys compared to the rest. For shoes they have a limited selection of Common Projects, Grenson, and...
I've visited his store in Iceland and I thought the knitwear pieces were the only interesting pieces there. The rest of the clothing was pretty lackluster in person, as well as the exotic leather accessories.He's not of Icelandic heritage actually. While it's definitely a good way to get PR, I think the odd items he comes up with are heavily influenced by the design community there in Reykjavik where you can buy some really bizarre shit.

From what I remember: yellow windbreaker navy nylon bedford stripe baker jacket seersucker andover jacket navy type 5 jacket 19th c. shirts in various colors/patterns olive fatigue pants navy cotton button vest lafayette shorts in a floral print and navy/white stripes lots of ties patchwork...
Many of the shirts in previous seasons were made in Japan, which I'm sure added to the cost. The new ones are made in England.
I assume they'll have their own product images soon. Totokaelo has a big presence in womenswear and is in a cool retail spot, so them getting into menswear will be nice - I hope they don't fall back on just Rick Owens/MMM/etc though. Article in the nytimes from not long ago: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/02/fashion/with-web-sites-local-boutiques-grow.htmlJack Straw should have another good season for SS13 with Ann D being added back, and they will supposedly carry more...
Interesting runway presentation.
