I wish I could say the same about my Fukubukuro. None of the three shirts really fit my wardrobe.

 

If anyone wears a 15.75" x 35.5" New York Slim Fit and wants mine for cost plus shipping and PP fees (which works out to half of retail price per shirt), I listed it in the classifieds.

Now I'm in fear.  Mine are in customs right now.  Hopefully I get some stuff I need.

I can't lie, I was a little disappointed. Last year, it seemed like people got a lot of basic styles in staple colors with their lucky bags. These shirts aren't bad by any means, but I have a very specific style that they do not match.

 

Best of luck with yours!

White in royal oxford, pink university stripe pinpoint button-down, and black-bracketed double-navy w/ sky blue striped on white twill CC. All barrel cuffs.

 

This white pretty much completes my white shirt collection at my stage in life. I wanted OCBD instead of pinpoint, but as long as I can wear it casually, more button-downs in traditional colors is generally fine. And I won't usually do CC, but there's something intriguing about this one. So I should be able to work all these into my rotation somehow. 

 

Looks like Kamakura's sticking to a template: a plain, a striped, and a crazy (CC or some other). I too have specific requirements for my shirts. Luckily these all fell within the acceptable range. I could very easily see it going wrong, though: none of wsupjs' particularly appeal to me.

Ouch. The white is ok (I would never buy a shirt with that fabric though), but not with the pocket. Easy enough to remove, I suppose. I kind of like the purple stripe one but I don't wear French cuffs. The CC one is a bummer.

Although I don't care for the CC shirt, the other two are definitely ones that I would purchase. Decent score.

I'm pretty happy with my trio this year. The cutaway collar isn't one I'd buy myself but I think I'll be keeping it.  All very usable.

Has anyone tried ordering an indigo chambray Vintage ivy shirt on their website? This link seems to fail:

http://www.kamakurashirts.com/contents/vintageivyshirts/#size

Another link, which works, doesn't include the indigo chambray:

http://www.kamakurashirts.net/shop/pages/1508_vintageivy.aspx

Can one reach Kamakura by email?

I didn't have a need for any of the shirts in my lucky bag.  I'm selling them if anyone is interested. Size 39/87 tokyo slim

That page was put up about 2 years ago when they originally offered that shirt, which is when I bought mine (actually I'm wearing it as I type!). I've also noticed that they never took down the page, even when the US site stopped offering the shirts. 

 

The Japanese site did sell that shirt again recently, as I spotted it the other day, but perhaps it sold out as I can't find it anymore.

 

Edit: I just found it again: http://shop.shirt.co.jp/shop/g/gWC910025L/

Maybe contact Kamakura and see if they will sell it to you via the international store.

 

You can try contacting them via their form on their site: https://www.kamakurashirts.net/shop/contact/contact.aspx

Got my first fukubukuro today.  Staple colors, not the most exciting but useful.  Fabrics from left to right are royal oxford, oxford, and pinpoint.  Very pleased as these are nice upgrades from some shirts I already have.

You're so lucky

Funny, looking at your listing I was thinking I would've been happy with your selection, since they seem a bit more fun.

Too fun for me, I suppose.  I actually like the red one I got, it just doesn't suit me.

Received my fukubukuro. Generally pleased with the selection. White pinpoint, pink university stripe and lavender herringbone.
