Anyone picked up the Long Banded Collar Shirt? Can't seem to find any info on the fit, even on Japanese stockist.

There's an ecru truman pant?

I was told early in the season that there was no matching pant for the ecru truman jacket, can somebody confirm the existence of an ecru pant?

Anyways, to contribute to the discussion, these are the pieces I'm really feeling this season. (I know there's a lot, but I think all of these pieces are seriously class!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My post got held for verification or something and just got the okay, so I don't think anyone saw it. Anyways, not trying to double post, but just curious as to what proxies you guys use/reccomend? Thanks again.

Hey,

I made a post a couple days ago, but it got held for verification? Or something, so I don't think anyone saw it. Anyways, was just curious as to what proxies you guys use/recommend? Any information is really appreciated as I'm trying to pick something up from overseas store sooner than later. Thanks!

There is an ecru Truman pant, I got it from Nepenthes (with help from randomkoreandude for the proxy). It is quite cool, quite different than many other EG pants. Some slight pleats and no belt loops, just side tabs.

Do Japanese retailers deduct tax in a similar way European countries do for foreign customers?

Yeah I got one a couple weeks ago it's basically a long popover with a 19th BD style fit. It has pockets too hidden on each side.

Thanks man! I know about Rakuten, but never heard of eggplant before. Was just wondering, does eggplant just do international orders from their store or can you use their service at other stores overseas? Thanks.

I would consider this as the default labeling of most garments today to protect the manufacturer from fabric failure due to consumer ignorance about how to properly care for garments. It never ceases to amaze me that when consulting a client as to how to care for a garment, that it's the "Deer in the headlights" look I get as a response. Gee wizz, I guess Momma is still doing your shit.
First of all, you need to separate your garments into categories. Light, white, dark and delicate and as for delicate, I always do most of my laundry delicate and turn everything inside out to avoid fabric abrasion while your clothes are messing with each other during the wash cycle. Cold is always the way in which you should wash most of your clothing, the detergent formulas today work equally as well as they did in the days when warm or hot only got things clean. The only wash I do hot is my undergarments, sheets and towels. As for drying, I never use the dryer except for towels and sheets. Being tall and my Mom always drying the shit out of our clothing, I always ended up with my trousers up around my armpits, so no dryer because you lose size and and it diminishes the quality of the fabric.
Here is a useful guide that you should print and put near your laundry or in your closet for reference when in doubt. Good luck!

I don't know. I've only used it to get an Orslow chambray shirt.
