-The Tokihito Wool Sporting Quilt isn't as nice as I think the photos suggest. It's lightweight and the lining is sort of cheap. Compared to the other Tokihito jackets it's a lot lighter. To be expected to an extent, but considering it's more outerwear than blazer I'd have expected it to be at least as heavy as my blazers. The "suede", if it is indeed suede, feels a bit cheap too. I really like the concept though and it fits nicely and looks good on. You sort of feel the lack of quality though maybe taking away from how you think it looks. Oddly enough the green version is gone from what I can tell. One of the guys at Barbour told me that it was only available in England which does make sense. Anyway, the wool herringbone version looks much nicer than the SS12 versions did, much richer looking if not feeling much different.
Was able to find this green Sporting Quilt last night. Man, like finding a needle in a haystack.
On a somewhat related note, Tokihito apparently designed that other blazer/jacket to go with the Mountain parka:
Nope. I was going to preorder a Large as well, but waited too long. I have a contact at a shop that had a preorder at a good price so I'll see what he says. I'm just thinking the Large will be too small pit-to-pit.
