    yeah, prices are definitely up this year but $900 for a parka seems crazy high. I'll be curious to see what everything comes in at once all the US stockists get their stuff in. Shirt prices are up a noticeable amount...hasn't stopped me from picking up a few though.

    start is slightly more expensive than the average, but not by much.
    i like that baker but not sure about the extra pleat in the flap at the back? seems to lead to a strange flare in the video.

    It's crazy how the European shops tend to wear the jacket so short...!!! I love Truman and Baker jackets but when I see so short and skinny: I get mad.

    Thumbs up for the style and look of the Japanese guy: this is how I intend EG!

    i agree the jacket looks better on the japanese guy but it could be that they are both wearing a small and he is much smaller in frame.
    i tried the lansdown last season, small was short/skinny fit on me, while i was swimming in the medium.

    THIS. Don't let the way they look on Japanese dudes guide you if you are 5"10+. These are shorter jackets for sure.

    I think this is the same denim EG used for SS12, just a bit more heavyweight. I own the SS12 Popover BD in this fabric (pic attached) and I absolutely love it - it looks kind of rigid in photos but it the material is soft to the touch, more like chambray, and drapes well.

    I know it's a SS12 question, but where did you buy this from?

    I bought it in a shop called "Natural" in Fukushima. I live in Japan (no worries, not in Fukushima, I just traveled there once to see the aftermath). I think it was a special item made for that shop only.

    Yes, shorter, I agree!

    But I have seen the Truman at Pitti Uomo on Daiki in person and in fact he wear more comfy that the guy at Start does.
    The way how Daiki wear the Truman is more similar to the Japanese guy, except the sleeve that on Daiki does not need to be turned up.

    I think fit is very very important.

    In my opinion this does not involve only personal taste: but how the designer imagine the item in his mind.
    I have talk a couple of time with Daiki about this and he always say that he doesn't agree with some shops that season by season ask items skinny, smaller, too much tight.

    I've understand he think items must be more "regular", the next S/S2013 that I have try at Pitti Uomo is more comfortable, more easy to wear and from my personal first impression it seems that jackets are more better tailored than before.
