    Has anyone attempted the darkside of fwk?
    Does daiki really cut/shape these items differently for women? Is this a viable option for the smaller men amongst us?
    If so, any suggestions as to what 1 2 or 3 correspond to in mens sizing? (Blazers & outerwear)
    If not, sorry to waste everyones time, regardless of their familial relation to mr suzuki.
    Thnx

    imho I dont think they're cut exactly the same, maybe some items are but the ones I've tried not really and a size 2 = slightly roomy xs, size 1 = really slim and a bit cropped xs, size 0 = foggettaboutit

    Hey guys just wondering if anyone has tried on/bought both the LDT jacket and the uniform serge bedford this season? Just wondering what the comparative fits are like? The large LDT is a perfect fit for me, but I had to size up FW12 for the knit bedford.. Have been eyeing off a navy bedford for a couple of seasons..

    Thanks in advance

    Has anyone dealt with Bodega or French Garment Cleaners? According to Nepenthes they both ordered a piece that I want so I emailed them both a couple of days ago but haven't heard anything. Just wondering if they are always this slow to respond to queries?


    The Bureau and Kafka have this piece in the size you're looking for.

    I'd ring up FGC, its a small store that does most of their stuff in person, might no be best via email.

    Bodega has a webshop,
    http://shop.bdgastore.com/collections/engineered-garments



    The silhouette is very similar, if not a more pronounced triangle shape or simply narrower shoulders, but I found the garments mainly had a smaller width/length ratio, for example once I found the fwk size that fit similar/equivalent to my normal eg size in the chest, I realized the body length and sleeve were much shorter than they would be on my normal eg size, therefore have to size up and then it starts getting a bit roomy in the chest and still just barely there on the sleeves, make sense?
    So I guess if you're under 5'6" and have short arms it might be worth a shot, otherwise I'd want to try it on first or make sure theres a decent return policy.

    The Bureau has a sale around Christmas - at least they did last year. I think Kafka stuff goes on sale later than that (perhaps Jan or Feb) but I'm not sure about that. You may want to keep an eye on the item in question, EG can sell out of a popular item completely before it ever goes on sale these days.

    Changed my mind and grabbed the LDT vest in Navy Windowpane instead of Grey or Charcoal. It just might me more versatile in that color.
    Thanks to the posters who replied previously

    I managed to find the Matt pant I was looking for, but I'm feeling a little less confident with sizing given how slim it looks on some of the models. Would anyone know where I can find some reliable thigh and waist measurements for a size 32 and 34 Matt pant? it seems to jump quite a bit in all the Japanese sites I've checked. Or anyone here with these sizes care to chime in?

    Also, were there 2 types of Olive in the heavy twill, or is it just the different pictures that make some look olive brown and some look olive green?

    Cannot help with sizing, but there are two distinct Olive fabrics/colours:

    1. Olive Reversed Sateen. Used also on Cinch pants and Fatigues this season. Greener in colour.

    2. Olive Coated Heavy Twill. More brown in colour.
