    I was a lurker for a little in the other thread. I've spent at least $3500 buying these clothes used and my wardrobe might be a third complete. yay

    @wormwood Julius? mine looks a lot like that anyway

    the 7th anniversary one? that's what mine is from. Used to be "gold" but it was super faded when I got it so I just dyed it black.

    ahhhaha yes, damn. was looking for it for a few years and finally found the one, though one of the best fitted Horikawa's pieces.

    btw just grabbed the gold one from Isetan collab. could you shed some light on how it could fade with some aging?

    I got mine used so I'm not sure about the fading process but the usual stress areas were quite faded and more of a light tan than gold, also all the metallic bits came off except for the upper shoulder. Chest and back also had black dots around the seams which I assume was from stretching.

    Zam Barrett has a decent hoodie that is pretty similar to that one @sinnedk

    Not sure how artisanal you consider kka, but they make cool hoodies. There are some for sale at archive as well. Cheaper than the devoa, but still pretty expensive for a hoody. If you could fit into a size three you could might be able to find one in Japan and proxy for cheaper. KKA's wool-cashmere flannel is very nice.

    Thanks I'll look at some kka.

    Honestly don't care too much about artisanal, mostly want a hoody that works with ccp/ma+ at a decent price

    Zam's has vertical pockets, gloves

    [​IMG]

    KKA fleece has very similar shaped, raw hem, no gloves and pockets with the diagonal interaction with the side panel seams

    The KKA wool cashmere one looks pretty sweet. I'm not personally a fan of the finishing band on the lower body just due to the fact that I wear lots of longer shirts underneath my jackets but if you're going to a cleaner look with a normal length shirt and your RO Detroit denim or something then this would work. It is shown with the longer top underneath here and I think the band is fighting with that.

    The fabric would be considerably more lux than the current Zam options. He has made wool ones in the past too but not this season.

    i'll always be a wings+horns tiger fleece dude (I wanna be extra comfy if I'm wearing a hoody in the first place) but the WJK heavy jersey hoodies are my favorite in that line:
