On Japanese Amazon I found some Boglioli shirts for $100. Good deal?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So, I live in the Kansai area of Japan, and at my height it is very hard to find an appropriately sized shirt off the rack. I typically go with online shopping, sticking to Brooks Brothers who kindly ship to me, but today I came across some really cheap Boglioli shirts on Amazon. Since I know this brand is never adjusted to the Japanese size (long torso, short arms) I'm confident they will fit, but I wonder about how reasonable the price is. Looking on mrporter the typical shirt goes for about 30,000 yen, but these are apparently marked down from 43,000 yen to 10,000 (about $100 USD). Here are some images of the shirt I'm looking at (it says it's a casual shirt next to the Boglioli name):

This is another one I really like:

Any info on how good this deal really is would be appreciated. I can't find these shirts anywhere else so they may be a bit dated, but if they look good and fit well I could not care less.

They are a decent deal.  Not much more to say about that.

If you are in Japan, I'm pretty sure you can get Kamakura for much cheaper at one of their many shops.  They are very nice shirts.

I'll check it out! I love Japanese clothes, but I'm really tall and big in the shoulders/chest so it's a nightmare finding my size.

If you don't mind waiting a month, for about ¥2,000 more you can get a Kamakura MTM shirt, according to their website.
