post #14071 of 19153

I don't think it's been brought up before on this thread, but does anybody have any experience with Kamakura shirts?  They're an ivy-obsessed Japanese shirtmaker who have recently opened a shop in NYC.  I took the plunge($79/shirt) on a green/white striped OCBD, and for what you'd pay for a Brooks Brothers, you get a better collar roll, better cut options, and exact measurements(i.e. 16.5/33 as opposed to S, M, L, XL).  Really high quality shirts...

  Beautiful heavy but breathable oxford weave, impeccable stitching, and collar that roll like butter.  Only downsides are no locker loop and it's only a 2-button collar so no third.  Back yoke stitched at the top, and the Tokyo Slim fit has darts in the back. Their cuts are New York, New York slimfit, Tokyo(what I have), and Tokyo slim fit.  

  I ain't working on commission or anything, but I was pretty blown away by the quality to price ratio of the shirts.

  Anybody else take the plunge?

Clouseau.The article by Gary Oldman was a great read for me ,we are the same age so i could see many similarities ( ok i dont play the piano or support Millwall ) with his clothes in the 70s and working/saving to buy them.Today i got that Paul Smith navy blue jeans belt that you put a picture up of many pages back,it is really good quality and i got it in a sale for half price ! thanks for the information....any ideas for a white,slim fit short sleeve button down ?

I think too this Gary Oldman's interview was really good. His evolution (on the clothing style subject) is interesting. But of course we don't have the same budget (& renown) as a famous actor...  So it's pretty difficult to always wear the last Paul Smith suit...His insights too were interesting, and rang a bell on several subjects we discussed here.

 

On short sleeve button down i won't be very original. I recently bought a white slim fit Ben Sherman ("soho fit") i quite like. Button down, but with a small collar. No chest pocket or back pleat. So it is quite different to a regular Ben Sherman. With a modern twist IMO. Bought it during the sale. Was cheap. Nice fit.

And for the price of a Brutus Trimfit but made for the normal-cut fellow, and won't disintegrate. Bulletproof shirts.

It looks like they're quite a bit more expensive now that the company's been sold! 280 quid/480 bucks for a 'Cuta?! The price has literally doubled. Anyroad, here 'tis:
