Although not particularly relevant to this thread, I have to say that I had a great time shopping for Post O'Alls at this tiny little store in NYC called Extra. I saw the owner Koji Kusakabe with Takeshi Ohfuchi at Nepenthes last Thursday and went to the store this weekend to find the vest that Takeshi was wearing. The store has a HUGE selection of Post O'Alls, seriously. I have never seen this stuff anywhere, not on blogs or carried by other western retailers. If you live in NY and you like this kind of stuff I highly recommend stopping by. Totally made me rethink how I perceive the brand... lots of prints and soft detailing, far from the strictly-workwear imaginary I previously associated the brand with. Sizing was weird and I had to leave behind some amazing popover shirts and many different print shorts. Still went home with a summer print vest that I'm already very fond of. Go if you can.

Maybe this issue has been raised before already but...how does Post O' fit? Judging by the pictures a lot of stuff seems pretty 'boxy'. Are the sleeves narrow? Is it meant for slim frames or bulky one? ;-)

I really wanted to get to Extra last time I was in NY, but it just wasn't in the cards.

In general the tops are boxy and sleeves are short. Pants IME are straight but run generally true. There was a rumor that the sleeve lengths might be longer in FW10 or SS11 but I haven't had the chance to compare.

I wouldn't say thin guys can't wear it, but it's not a slim fit.

Maybe it's just this season (I never checked them out until recently), but I can vouch that XS in both the current tops and bottoms fits me really nicely; I'm 5'7", 120 lbs, and pretty slender-shouldered. Can't speak for the rest of the sizes, but I was expecting boxiness and was surprised. I have a really hard time finding cuts small / skinny enough to fit properly, too. The pants from this season seem to be slim (not skinny, but definitely a nice slim profile) and the tops about true-to-size. But maybe that's just my end of the sizing. I'm picking up http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=2247 and maybe a vest Friday. =]

I'm not sure where to ask this, so I'll ask it here. Does anyone know the etymology of the word "cruzer"? I've been reading some interviews with Ohfuchi and he seems to refer to "cruzer" as a historical style. Can someone clue me in?

It's taken from the vintage cruiser jackets made by brands like Filson and Woolrich. They have multiple pockets with rounded off corners with the triangular shaped pocket flap which he uses on his "cruzer" pieces. Like "cruzer" he names other models like the "sweat bear" which are a reference to the vintage pieces they are inspired by. Sweet Bear being a combo of Sweet Orr and Black Bear chore jackets.

nice

post #42 of 43

can those in the know , confirm the general size difference ..

i.e - the Engineer seems to me to be the tightest fit .. generally an xl is 24" pit-pit ..

then the melton wool cruzer is quoted to be 26" pit-pit ..

I struggle getting coats to fit , as for some bizarre reason xxl isn't made ..

 

anyone like to contribute their thoughts on the fit of certain pieces ..

Damnit a great write up I've only gotten around to now.
