Most poly coating lasts a long time and its always shiny( at least from my experience). If they are matte and get shiny with wear they are a type of wax.

I spent Sunday doing some late summer sale wandering in Aoyama and Harajuku. I was a bit disappointed with Rugged Museum (Free & Easy magazine's in-house store) - a lot of the designs seemed to use rather poorly-thought out colourways and they definitely look better in the magazine shots than in real life. I was tempted by a camo jacket and vest combination, but then realised that I really don't want to look like I'm trying to copy Nick Wooster. Rugged Factory, their other somewhat cheaper outlet, actually seemed to have more interesting things - like suit separates in indigo-dyed fabric used for judogi. Beams+ was good. They carry OrSlow jeans, which I like, but not in the sale of course... I picked up a couple of their own label madras shirts that were though.
