Kamakura Shirts - Madison Ave Store - Page 79

post #1171 of 1177
Thank you for the heads up!

Thoughts on these shirts? I don't have a striped shirt that does not have equal width stripes, maybe I should start?

They are really awful at restocking! I've been checking back periodically for a candy-stripe Oxford, and they haven't restocked them in any colour in what must be over a year now.

I agree, and it's frustrating.

 

The silly thing is that clearly there are lots of shirts in stock, as they're for sale on the Japanese website, but the non-Japanese website isn't being updated to reflect the stock.

 

What makes that even sillier is that the shirts purchased from the non-Japanese online store are all sent out from Japan, so it's not as though updating the non-Japanese store would require any physical changes, such as sending a big pile of shirts over to the US or anything like that - all they have to do is update a website.

I was in the NYC store this February and was told that they are working on combining the US and JP websites into one sometime this year. Hope that happens sooner than later.

I've been eyeing a pink/white stripe oxford BDC for a while - I personally love Gitman Vintage's take on it: http://cache.mrporter.com/images/products/509211/509211_mrp_cu_l.jpg but it costs 2x Kamakura's.

I'm not a fan of the Kamakura you linked because I think it looks too reddish/orangish and not pinkish.

Also, has anyone tried out the new 'Oxford lightweight' cloth?

Edit: Geez- this looks interesting. A button down collar polo. http://shop.shirt.co.jp/item/PD2201_27/

So can we talk Kamakura?

I've been griping lately about how their US site never gets any good shirt stock anymore. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for staples like bengal stripe oxfords in different colors, end-on-ends, etc. Seems all the US site gets nowadays is the "dregs." When the US site first launch, it had all that good stuff... now... nada

Then I got the bright idea the other day to check out the Japanese site with the help of Google Translate... I was blown away

They have tons of a great shirts. Pretty easy to find those. http://shop.shirt.co.jp/mens/shirt/slim/

What I thought was more interesting was the selection of jackets, ties, pants and shoes... WAYYYY BETTER stock than the US store
