That's too bad, robin. Then again, any actual MFxJCrew collab seems to be MF stenciling J Crew stuff. With actual MFSC stuff, it's the design, materials, and construction that blows me away. Any stencil is just an addition.

I feel the same. I think MF is overpriced. I like quite a lot of it ....the CPO shirt for example is great, but not 380 bucks great. Maybe I would feel differently about it if I had actually handled it in real life or maybe I'm just not a baller.

That bag looks great. Too bad about the smell/price. Do they display it in store? Did the SA have any comment about the odor?

It's only for sale online. No comment from the SA other than the usual sorry; I also emailed them but their customer service didn't really seem to care either.

Some of those old R&B bags suffered from a smell like that. Smelled like old crayons. And to the guy who said that the CPO is overpriced at $380 - There isn't really another shirt with similar detailing or craftsmanship to really compare to it. I'm probably going to get one soon, as well as a pair of the MFSC jeans. The way I see it, with those items you really get a whole wardrobe in one piece of clothing. I'll probably be wearing them like a uniform for some time to come.

You're right and that probably is a bad example for me to have chosen. However, in the case of some of the other MF pieces, there are products out there that are similar enough to allow a price comparison...for instance Buzz Rickson do a 1943 foul weather deck jacket for about 400 dollars, half the price of the MF version. I think that lack of availability and interweb hype have something to do with the prices they are able to sell at. I can understand why people like the designs a lot. As I said maybe I would feel completely differently if I had actually handled the product. I intend to when I get the chance.

These were posted on superdenim last week:

Riders dungarees $400
mechanics sweatshirt $290 without patch $300 with patch
mechanics shirt $300
leather jacket - plain $1899 with stars 2100 full appliqué $2400
greaser cap $360
backpack $500
mulhulland master $900

Prices will be somewhat less if you order from Japan.

Robin do you imagine the smell would go away fairly quickly? Was that the main turn off or was it more the quality?

A little of both, though if the detergent/dryer lint smell wasn't there I probably would have kept it.

I thought about trying to wash it on my own in hopes to get the smell out, but I figure a $200 canvas tote should be perfect right out of the box.

Really, I don't think anyone should pass judgment on MFSC stuff unless they've seen/handled it in person.

Any chance of the MF deck jacket being restocked?

Not likely at all...

1. Try SENY??
2. Try calling the MF store in LA
3. Here is a 38
4. Although J Crew claims there are more on the way...
