Takahiro Miyashita - Number (N)ine, The Soloist - Page 12

I think it's the same jacket as mine, The Nobled Zip Up jacket from SS 2011.

I think it's the same colorway as the one on this blog and rakuten listing:

Can anyone enlighten me on the size range for thesoloist? Everywhere I look it is a S or M...with Number (N)ine I was lucky that they went up to size 4 and 5 but it doesn't seem like thesoloist goes up that high

No, see that was what I was trying to say - its not that one.  Both of the ones you posted have an off white lining (visible through the exposed seams) in 70%cotton/ 30% linen - mine is black 96%wool 4% angora.  Also mine doesn't have buttons near the front hem of the jacket, but does have a chest pocket with deerskin patch.

 

It also has a different product code on the tag S.0390 whereas 2011 versions like yours are S.0024 I think?  There seems a bunch of different variations on the CPO type jacket with slightly different pocket arrangements and so on, I think he likes to do minor tweak the same designs a lot.

 

Edit: but yeah they're all broadly the same, and yours looking badass encouraged me to cop ;)

I know they make size L. It's just hard to find. Never seen XL before that I can remember.

Just got the cocktail shirt (this guy) off YJP. Pretty excited. I've wanted one forever.

I think I've seen a t-shirt in size L before, and some pants, but that's about it.  Not much out there

Haven has their Soloist buy online. And have size L. Prices are fairly insane, of course.

Soloist has to be by far the latest delivery of the season. IF just got their buy a little while ago. I checked out the double layer bomber when I was there. It's really good and isn't a hard piece to pull off. The sweat stuff is pretty nice. Fabrics have a coarse, dry hand that I really liked. The rough out jackets are amazing. They're completely unlike anything else on the market. Prices are high but Soloist is one of those brands where you can't find some cheaper alternative that's a compromise but still kinda works.

Ahh interesting to hear about the sweats.  Hard to tell from pictures quite what the fabric is like.

 

Re pricing -  I'm just conditioned these days by looking at Japanese stores, and proxying stuff.  I'm sure some of what Haven has will hit sales or whatever, but when you have a jacket that's $1800 in Japan to start off with, and then you add nearly 50%... :cry:

soloist sizing is pretty random though, i have pieces ranging from xs to m.
