    I saw that jacket on the rig by the door last week. It is INSANE.

    It's funny I just got my hands on about 10 of their old catalogues from the early 2000s and have to agree that things were a lot less tame then. The level of quality hasn't changed but the the overall vibe has. These days it seems like it's mostly sportcoats and woven shirts. I've always been most drawn to their sweaters and outerwear.

    For real. The way the staff tells it, it sounds like the conservative direction isn't down to a shake up with the design team or anything like that; they're just getting older and their tastes are changing. Who knows if that is true, but it would make sense.

    Speaking of sweaters, I got to see pics of a few of the pieces that are coming down the pipe this winter and there are a couple knits that look really promising, including a hand knit cowichan. Price tag on that one is going to be bananas, I imagine.

    It is INSANE. Amazing. Beautiful. It is also $7200. Even taking full account of everything that was said about manufacuturing processes and quality earlier in the thread, this is COMPLETELY INSANE. Have they only made 3 of them or something?

    Have you seen it in person? I would never buy it but I would argue that it is more art than clothing and people pay a lot more than that for art.

    No doubt. And I would buy it and wear it and love it - could I afford it. My view of 'art' like this is very much influenced by my wife's Japanese attitudes to craft more generally: it should be used. Sadly, in this case, I will never get the chance.

    NickPollica,
    Are those Eidos Morgan cords?
    Funny thing is, my story parallels yours, but the Morgan pants are sold out in my size (32) at Unionmade by the time I saw it last month. And I've been searching for something similar with no luck!

    Yep - that's the Morgan in indigo corduroy. Sometimes RRL or Mister Freedom runs indigo cord but they tend to be style more like workwear.

    Quiet on here again...anyone up for a trade? I have a couple pieces from last season that I am realizing I probably won't ever wear, one of which is this:

    It's waxed cotton, lined in wool and denim. Made in Scotland.

    This jacket deserves a good home, but I am unfortunately not the one to give it the love it needs.

    What are the chances there are a decent amount of fakes up on g-railed/ebay? Bought this little number (https://www.g-railed.com/listings/3840408-45rpm-45rpm-Snap-Button-Shirt) and see it is shipping from Malaysia.

    Also the other 45 rpm items are selling rather too cheap perhaps? Doesn't help several other sellers seem to have the same detail/pay/ship info as well.

    New lookbook for summer 18 has been up for a little while. I'm liking the new off-the-cuff direction of the photography.

    I kind of want to be this bald gentleman-artist when I grow up...

    The women's side gets the more interesting fabrics and prints as has been the trend, although this piqued my curiosity:

    Also, for anyone still following this thread, does it kind of seem like they are slowly replacing the men's stuff with their new unisex 908 line?

    Just came across this thread, I recall the nice corduroy jacket back then when I got a chance to shoot 45R shop in Tokyo. Roughly in 2014 if I remember correctly. Thought it might be the one @NickPollica was talking about.
