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...

Some store pics from Japan: http://engineeredgarments.jp/?eid=304 The fatigue shorts are also coming in colorful fabrics this season: From: http://nepenthes.co.jp/topics/138/j138.html
That version of the preacher hat looks like an unshapped hat blank, though it looks like it was lightly pressed and shaped around the brim.
Initial thoughts: the outerwear isn't appealing to me to this season, but I'm digging the floral print shirts/shorts and patchwork madras pieces.

What's with the creepy nephew/uncle stuff in the Alden thread? Weirdos.There's a bug on their site that lets you get free overnight shipping, just saying...Not fashion related but I'm surprised that I like this:
Jack Straw started their FW sale this last weekend, not too much left though: http://jackstrawclothing.blogspot.com/2012/11/fallwinter-sale.html They're unfortunately dropping CdG and Junya this season due to Nordstrom picking them up for spring, however Ann D will be available again next season.
