Alright I'm probably going to finally buy that S&C cardigan. It's too bad I live in Canada and I get raped on FX, taxes, and duties LOL but that didn't stop me from shopping at NMWA before!

Does anyone have a pic of the "grey mix" cardi? Also, I know it runs big and I think last time I asked here it sounded like a M would be the right size for me? 6'2 180 slim. I don't want a baggy fit but don't want it to be tight either.

So... I've recently started doing brand mega-review threads on Reddit.

Last week we did Drake's, people had some things to say -- not much, but some.

This week we tried Camoshita. People want to hear about it, but it's a bit of a ghost town -- nobody has a ton of experience with the brand. So I figured this was a good place to ask -- what can you tell us about Camoshita? Feed the hive-mind!

You're correct about the spelling of the brand. YK wanted his brand to have an international/European ring so he used C instead of K.

I think that's an important part of what Camoshita is about. From the very start, YK conceived the brand as something that he wanted to sell outside of Japan, outside of the UA store network. In a sense, that's an experiment for UA and YK - they didn't have a brand to wholesale like that. Beams (UA’s arch rival) developed a couple of wholesale brands for the international market but UA never did.

So everything about designing and marketing Camoshita was done looking outside Japan : size ranges, showing at Pitti and NY, working on Western retail schedule... the other Japanese brand that we carry that has this approach is ts(s).

It’s worth noting that many of the styles that YK designs are drawn from his own clothes (bespoke and vintage finds). Also, credit is due to Hiro Tarao who develops most of the designs and styles in the collection, from YK’s direction.

My appreciation for Camoshita is very much because of his color palettes and the incredibly tasteful eye he has for fabrics and colors. Many are custom developed (fabric mulls don’t make those shades of ochre and mauve...) which invariably adds to the cost of the clothes (again, not dissimilar to ts(s))

Any specific questions that you wanted to answer?
 

Thanks SF (a new me)

Whoa my Camo herringbone pants came in from the sale and it's pretty rad. The fabric is sartorial but it's like a casual pair of pants. Best of all, it's unlined and machine washable! I can def see it working in both CM and SWD outfits

Finally got my Moscow. $1600 was too steep for me but my eye just kept coming back to this aubergine colour over and over. I imagine this fabric won't run again and this was going to be my white whale if I didn't get it while the getting's good.
This is a great coat. I've gotten many compliments on it and I have the plain blue color. I wear for both dressy and casual occasions.
