Kamakura Shirts - Madison Ave Store - Page 102post #1517 of 15874/24/16 at 3:35amQuote:
I don't believe there is such as size as 17/37 in Tokyo Slim, so NY Slim it would be. I do feel that the neck on my shirts have shrunk slightly, yes. I think going up a 1/2 size wouldn't end up being too bad.post #1518 of 15874/25/16 at 10:41amQuote:post #1519 of 15874/25/16 at 4:29pmpost #1520 of 15874/25/16 at 7:22pmI just had to get another light blue university stripe OCBD. The particular oxford fabric is really soft similar to my worn light blue OCBD. Do not know why but the white OCBD I have feels a lot more stiff, wish it was softer. This is also why I picked up a white button in cotton twill as an alternative.
Was bummed it was sold out online by the time I realized I need another.
Ordering from the NY store is pretty cool when you receive your package via USPS Priority 2-3 day, was surprised I got it this morning..cool packaging. Sort of makes the additional shipping cost worth it when the delivery is quick and I don't have to visit the USPS post office since international deliveries require a signature. (I tend to miss all my international orders from Kamakura when shopping online; wish they just leave it at my door step.)post #1521 of 15875/4/16 at 2:11amThought I'd add a little bit of feedback.
Received a couple the Leno/giro inglese/cellulare type shirts today and am very pleased with them. I do own a couple from suit supply,and was about to grab a couple from luxire, but noticed a couple interesting colours on the Kamakura Japanese site.
Shrinkage might take them close, because pre-wash the fit is close to perfect, so I may have to move the collar button, but the fabric is excellent and at once substantial and very airy due to the gauze like weave of the fabric.
It might be a tad more wrinkly than the a nice pinpoint or twill cotton, but certainly far less so than pure linen - probably as wrinkly as a linen cotton mix would be my guess.
Either way, I'm pleased and I only wish they'd had a nice pink, but I'll just wait then I suppose.post #1522 of 15875/16/16 at 7:13pmpost #1523 of 15875/26/16 at 10:45am
Just want to confirm before visiting the store, is there no size offered in the NY or Tokyo slim that is sized similar to a 17-35?
The 43-94 in NY Slim is a ~17/37?
And in Tokyo the biggest collar, 43, is a ~34" sleeve?
Seems the 43-94 is likely my only option, and I would need to get the sleeves shortened. Does the NY store offer free alterations on the sleeves?post #1524 of 15875/26/16 at 2:14pm
There's the NY Classic fit in 43-92, which equates to approx. 17-36.5. The size you're looking for is fairly unusual. I typically need around a 35 sleeve, and my neck size is 15.5. My size is fairly easily found. I don't believe the company offers any free alterations, but they have a custom program that seems suited to someone with your non-standard dimensions.post #1525 of 15876/4/16 at 8:59ampost #1526 of 15876/4/16 at 9:15ampost #1527 of 15876/4/16 at 1:50pmpost #1528 of 15876/5/16 at 1:57pmSpex is correct that most of the basic stock fabrics start at $180 and I think that's how they advertised it for a while, but there are now about 5 or 6 basic fabrics that they offer in MTM for $130 per shirt iirc. They are noticeably less nice than the stock fabrics, but a good bet for a casual button down.post #1529 of 15876/6/16 at 4:29amQuote:Originally Posted by Rusty

This makes sense, as in Japan they have 2 price points for MTM - ¥120 (approx $120 USD after tax) and ¥180 (approx $181 USD after tax). All of the Oxford cloths are ¥120, but interestingly, so are most of the Thomas Masons. It seems the higher priced fabrics are their "300 Club" fabrics. I can't be sure that this corresponds to what the NYC stores would charge.post #1530 of 15876/12/16 at 7:32pm
I have the long-sleeve pique polo in white. The fabric is very thin and light. I absolutely love the collar, which has a sculptural quality and is very elegant, both with a jacket and without.
I wish the grey were still available in medium but it has been sold out for a while.
