    I wanted to start a new thread to get everyones input.

    My goal as an affiliate is to bring the Japanese labels that interest everyone here. So tell me, what do you want Atsui to carry? Do you want us to carry more repro denim or more collection. I will be in Japan next month and I am willing to talk with anyone. Tell me what labels you like and why and I will meet them.

    More and varied denim. I'm not sure what the arrangement BiG has regarding US distribution, but I'd love to see some of those brands on the west coast.

    Is National Anthem a Japanese brand? I think it might be an EG-type deal where it is Japanese, but it's actually made in NA. Anyway somebody posted some examples of their workwear stuff earlier and I loved them.

    Cross-posted from the Japanese Style thread. Should be here.

    1. White Mountaineering. Camping inspired.
    2. Post O'alls. Recently covered in ACL.
    3. Haversack. Recently covered in the Sartorialist.
    4. Sassafras. Gardeners inspired.
    5. Naval and Mountain Research, which had a recent thread with lots of interest pop up on SuFu.

    Maybe a little more along the lines of what you're already carrying: Zucca

    shop: http://www.hmr.jp/user/BrandTop/ZU?svid=2 and

    I recently picked up a s/s shirt of theirs and I have to say it's one of my favorites.

    I'd say Silas. It's a bit worse than what it was some years ago, but still good.

    Loopwheeler and PBJ are definitely good additions to that list. Been meaning to get an LW sweaters for a while now.

    +1 on NA and also LOOPWHEELER. Got one of their sweat shirts and the construction is AMAZING.

    Kato brand S/S 08. Kind of workwearish. I don't think any affiliates carry them (if they do, someone clue me in as I'd like to check them out).

    It'd be nice to see Kapital and Johnbull, don't know much about the others.

    Fairly sure PBJ is BiG exclusive.
