    Think of it as a jacket then [​IMG] It is about as heavy as many spring or lighter fall jackets.

    Fok.


    That's very true...And I just may doing that to convince myself, heh. We'll see how much money I have left over after buying some winter jackets/Christmas shopping :)

    Amazing Piece. Saw it before it left and have been waiting to order one up. I knew the price when I saw it in person and think it is WELL worth the price of admission.

    Cheers to Ryan, Sam, Fok and Raan. This thing is rad.

    Liked the piece a lot. Thought of buying it, but it is a little bit outside my price range for now. Congratulations!

    Thanks for the kind words Chad. Let me know if you need any artisanal Wisconsin cheese for the holidays.

    Thanks for all the kind words.

    For all those who know Fok, it comes as no surprise that every detail in this piece was carefully considered. The end product is a wonderfully edited piece focused on fit, fabric, and quality production. And yes, lots of overnight shipping for approval from everyone involved.

    I think the price is legit. Compare this to dry black coated jackets (e.g. Nudie) and this piece seems like a steal. Limited production, editioned, Italian milled fabric cut and sewn in the USA, and extremely wearable and versatile (shirt? jacket? you decide).

    I'll be taking pictures of mine later today. You'll be able to see the slight patina developing. Exciting.

    Wow, this shirt is fantastic. Hopefully, it hasn't sold out before I can afford it.

    Cheap ass. Spend less on alcohol and more on clothes.

    I've got the same question on this that I do on all the shirts from 'streetwear' brands. If the makers are going to cut them in 1/2 size or less increments (+1" in the chest per size increase) then why bother with the standard XS-XL sizing? The XL's are mediums at best in traditional sizing, so why call the shirt bigger than it is?? Doesn't seem like it would help them to sell.

    Not really a complaint btw, I'm just curious as to the rationale.
