I thought the international store used to do over 138 is free shipping, so not too hard to hit

Kamakura shirts closing its US operations
It's doing great in Japan (or was in March when I was last there). I think a lot of this has to do with the changing formality of the US workplace. Sure, Ivy / retro enthusiasts may like the collar roll, but that's not Kamkura's main market, which is simply shirts for work. And while the average Japanese salariman still does (even with 'coolbiz' etc.). Americans don't wear those kinds of shirts for work so much any more.

They will soon. The age of the suit shall return.

All DTC casual-wear brands will be purged in a great and righteous fire.

I have dreamt it.

Commentary from Nature:
total mass of microfibres introduced to the environment between 1950 and 2016 to be 4.3 million to 7 million tonnes. ... nearly half of that mass ended up in lakes, rivers and oceans, mostly by way of untreated waste water.

Looking at just that EG fleece waiting for fall to turn as the culprit is only part of the story when looking at micro-fibers. It's an issue but the whole picture is scary.

Yeah, we discussed those topics at length in their thread a while back I believe.

Tangentially related to the fashion industry, but related.

Fall 2021 for things to be in some sort of new normal? Apparently according to astrology (hey, it seems about as accurate as anything at this point) there's not going to be any new unknown-unknowns appearing this year at our doorsteps. So far this year's been a bit chaotic so not really trusting much.

Nobody knows. But nobody wants to admit to not knowing either. For a comparable situation, try looking back at the wartime predictions of when WW2 would end...
