Thank you for your response. I did not know this company ... I visited their website and blog and I have to say that they have very interesting pieces ... congratulations ...

But they do everything in Japan?

Yep their production is entirely Japanese, from concept to construction. One of the cool things about Ring is that they often use fabrics that are developed in-house, so you won't find them elsewhere (they also work with the Italian and English mills that everyone's familiar with, like Harris Tweed).  I've become partial to the "184" jacket model because of the shoulder and the clean but rounded chest.

thanks for the nice reply ... I must say that I really like their lines. I find classic but with the particularity that all do not have ... and then the idea of ​​creating fantasies just for them is a great idea ..

and congratulations for your continuous quest for excellence. A few stores in Europe and the world are doing research as you do.

A quick bump and note of support in favor of the guys at the Armoury.

I popped into the Hong Kong store in September when passing through on business, as I typically do. This past trip the jeans caught my eye and I tried on a pair. They are pretty much the perfect jean for me - not overly skinny, in fact a rather relaxed cut overall I would say. On a bigger fella like me this is quite appreciated. Anyways, I splurged on them and the guys turned the hemming around for me on a dime as I had a relatively tight schedule.

Along the way I finally got to meet the famous Ethan and he shared some of his tips on dressing for a larger guy and we shared a scotch in the store.

I picked up the jeans later that week on my way out of country and neglected to try them on. Stupid me. I got them home and realized they were far shorter than my preference. I'm sure I had some level of culpability in either not making my personal preferences clearer on measurement, and certainly for taking them home without trying them on.

In any event, when I described the issue to the Armoury in an e-mail, they were quick to take them back, asking me for a better length measurement, and I sent them back. I received my new jeans in the mail just two days ago (an overall turnaround of just a few weeks from when I sent them back). Other than the outbound shipping, the replacement was at no cost to me.

Great jeans, great guys, great service.
