Nii's list of essentials brought it to my attention. The price is very low and I assume that Brooks Brothers isn't bad quality (maybe that is a bad assumtion). I'd love to hear your thoughts. It would be my first light-weight jacket and therefore probably the only thing I could wear comfortably in the very hot Japanese summer.

Brooks is generally decent quality and style, particularly if you get a good price. At least in the picture, that jacket looks fine. You should try it on if you have the chance. I agree with Larson McCord, the bonobos jacket is ridiculously short. It also has too high button stance for my taste.
Any suggestions for a simple leather coin pouch? I know in the US you may not have much use for them but here in Canada we have $2, $1, $.25, $.10., $.05, and $.01 coins. I usually dont bother carrying anything smaller than $.25 coins but it would be nice to keep all my change in its own place in my front pocket. I dont like wallets with coin pouches built in sinc they feel too large. Any suggestions?
