post #136 of 159
Has anybody seen the "O Project" stuff outside of Japan? Being that it's mostly one size fits all I'd like to find somewhere closer in case I need to return it.

I've been following the launch on Instagram, so far it seems like it's Japan-only. I'm definitely tempted to proxy one of those hoodies though.

Thanks, that's how it looks. For whatever reason since it's still all made in Belgium I was thinking it would be available elsewhere to. I want the ballon pants.
Also, Coverchord has most of the line so there's no need to proxy, they ship worldwide.

literally just had a conversation about this line with Pietro via email this past week.

it sounds like it might find its way west eventually, they're just in the developing stages and are keeping it Japan only for now.

JJVE handles design & development, and their Japanese partners [literally called 'O'], are handling sales & distribution.

if enough of us western retailers bug them about it i'm sure they'll start letting us distribute it out here - but it's no surprise they collaborated with a Japanese company for this project as JJVE has really quite a following out there.

That would be dope if you guys carried it. I'm not as into it as the mainline stuff obv but the knits and balloon pants (unless I am just being presumptive and they are truly called Baroon pants) look good.
post #141 of 159
oh we'll definitely take it on AS SOON as it's available to us.

i'm a big fan of well executed diffusion lines, and knowing Jan-Jan's penchant for picking perfect fabrics, combined with his ability to design my absolute favourite basics [his jumpers are just... perfect] - i'm just drooling to get my hands on something like this.

would work as a fantastic introduction brand for our local clients, who are obviously a little shocked by the sticker price of what we do, but are slowly [& surely] developing a taste for what we carry regardless.

Yeah there's also a full size run of the entire line on eBay being sold by a Japanese seller (or at least there was, seems like a bunch of the sizes have been sold). I'm either going to order from Coverchord or wait and hope that Calculus get it (bigger sizes please!)

ooh thanks for pointing this out!

i want the knit sweatshirt, knit cardigan, knit tunic sweater, and the balloon trousers... can't afford all of it right now though... :/

i'm just obsessed with JJVE's patterns & fabrics, need to do some hands-on "research" on this ASAP.
post #145 of 159
Let us know what you get @curiouscharles!
And if anybody sees the grey knitted sweatshirt in L (or XL if it exists) please let me know.
post #146 of 159
having a hard time deciding, really don't have any spending money right now but i might still grab a few things.

will certainly update you if i do with a detailed report!
post #147 of 159
Alright well shit, I ordered the black balloon pants so we'll see how they go, I'm worried they'll be too small in the "one size" for the intended fit but measurements on Coverchord look alright.
Still need the knit and the mesh tank (if you end up being able to stock them PLEASE pick up L's in those and I'll pay up front/pre order/whatever).
post #148 of 159
yeah i want to at least try the black knit, just can't decide on sizing.

i'm presuming this size scale is graded towards the japanese market, but i'm typically an S in JJVE.

plus measurements are useless for such garments, and i'm obviously not going to get any customer service from an Ebay seller, UGH.

edit: looks like this seller won't ship discreetly either, definitely going to have to hard pass on any of this. :/

Does anybody know what trousers these are?



It's an 80/20 wool/poly blend and they are called "ridges", but as far as can tell the ridges had slant pockets and these have patch pockets. It also looks like these have a cuff at them hem like the track pants so I dunno.

Looks like they're Trousers #28, same as these but in a different fabric.
