Let me make this clear: THESE ARE THE BEST VALUE OXFORD SHIRTS ON THE MARKET

-Collar is just awesome
-Great flat felled stitching
-The Xinjiang cotton is noticeably higher quality. Thick yet soft. (See the microscope comparison pics on the first page of this thread)
-Darts are a nice feature (I hate baggy Brooks Brothers oxfords)
-Fit is perfect

I agree, can't beat that at 79, too bad they don't go on sale (or not that I am aware of).

Could anyone post your actual chest/waist measurements in addition to the size and style you picked from Kamakura as the sizing guide http://kamakurashirts.com/contents/styleguide/ is really confusing as it gives two chest and waist measurements and the difference between these two is 8" regardless of style! And if you could post the actual measurements (especially pit-to-pit) of your shirt as well, that would be really helpful! Thanks in advance!

And if you could also post the actual measurements of the shirt (eg. pit-to-pit) that would be helpful! Thanks in advance!

I'd also be curious if anyone has any actual measurements for the knit shirts.

Yes -- limited stock, but they ship orders out very quickly. Ask for Kota, he was very helpful.

Kota is great, but customer service seems to be of paramount importance to them across the store. I don't think it really matters who you get, you'll be treated exceptionally.

I just received the two shirts I ordered last week from their webstore.  I have to say, they really are the best RTW shirts I have ever purchased at this price point.

 

I emailed prior to ordering to ask about the measurements and I was told that they recommend a 8" difference between the shirt's chest and waist and your actual chest and waist measurements, which is what is shown on their style guide.  However, that's not really the case for me.  I am a slim guy, 6'0", 36" chest, 31" waist.  I ordered the Tokyo Slim Fit, 15 - 33 1/2,  and they fit me perfectly.  Before I discovered these shirts, my favourite RTW shirt in terms of fit is Thomas Pink Super Slim Fit 14.5".  No more Thomas Pink, so overpriced to buy here in Canada.

 

The only thing I would complain about is the duty fees.  Cost of both shirts + duties = $220.  Ugh, I hate Canada Customs.

My measurements:  6'0", chest 36", waist 31"

I ordered the Tokyo slim fit, 15-33 1/2.  Perfect fit.

 

With regards to the 8" difference, I called and spoke with someone about the measurements.  They recommend a 8" gap between the shirt's measurements and your measurements for both chest and waist, which is what is shown on their style guide.  So, I guess for me the gap is actually only about 2" for both chest and waist.

 

I'm located in Canada, and I was slapped with $60 duties.

When I was in the store 2~3 weeks ago they had linen shirts in about 5~7 colors, they were suppose to get more, better call them.
