I'll be very interested to see how this turns out. I hope its not priced as crazily as Visvim's jackets.

I enjoy reading posts about polar somethingorrathers and snorkel Parkers whilst in Melbourne I just sweated through 109 degrees yesterday, 107 degrees today and looking forward to 111 degrees tomorrow. On the plus side the nori and hopsack Walts did an outstanding job of keeping me cool AND looking good. smile.gif

Picked this up in an earlier FF round, and it's one of my favorite jackets. Highly recommended.

Only thing that worries me: What trousers match with a dark grey jacket? (Other than charcoal)

Olive, beige, tan, cream.

Charcoal seems like it would be one of the worst choices.

If that jacket is anything like my gray herringbone donegal jacket, which has some blue in it (like the stripes), I match with basically anything that's not a medium gray trouser. I find mine extremely versatile.

Mike--think my question above got lost in the excitement...or did you selectively ignore? ;)

Re the Noragi - I actually wear an old Fuji brand (based in LA, iirc) competition Gi as loungewear, since I haven't needed a competition gi in many years.  Since it is a competition gi for Brazilian jiujitsu, it has super thick lapels that drape really well, and the body is made out of really durable sashiko woven cotton.  It has to be very durable, since it is designed to withstand strong, grown men pulling on it with all their strength, opten against one another, and using all of your bodyweight.  It would be awesome to see this done.  I am looking at the thing now, and realize that it is actually very flattering, and could, without all the patches, and perhaps not in this Pitti blue color that I thought was so great at the time (maybe I was just ahead of my time), be used as a cool casual jacket.  

 

Would love to talk to you about that, Mike.  And since a lot of these martial arts supply stores are LA based, you might have a really cool thing for the EPLA brand that is just not used by other companies.  And because there are single and double (competition) gis, it's easy to have a summer and winter version as well.

Grey or black with brown is very YSL circa early 70s.

Noragi sounds super cool, and very wearable when thought of more like a cardigan and less like something super forward.

But PLEASE don't only make it in a raw/dark denim, since that would make it really difficult to wear with jeans that aren't super faded/worn in.

Seems like something like this might work in a woven wool with some character. Of course I've only known what a Noragi is for about 24 hours so I may not be authorized to make suggestions.
