    Yeah I was looking mainly for the paisleys. At the price they are going for I'm definitely getting one or two immediately and probably more when sales start

    Good work by Daiki. But I think last year was better.

    Items I'll buy for now.

    Beautiful scarf that is, already placed my order.

    And this work shirt.

    And then 2 fatigue shorts. But probably there will be much more.

    Oh I love EG.

    Haven't seen much EG 2012 available elsewhere yet, definitely haven't seen a navy Douglas. When you find it....get it! I picked up my khaki one the other day and absolutely love it, fantastic shirt.

    Yeah I did, they are my local store so anytime they have an EG piece I want that is where I get it.

    Awesome piece. Can you give me a brief description on the shirt? Thick? I reside in Australia and the climate here is HOT.

    It's thick for a SS shirt I'd say, which is one reason I like it. It's obviously designed a little bit as an overshirt or a light shirt jacket (and styled that way in many of the images I've seen of it). I plan to wear it as just a shirt though. I don't think it will be too hot for summer myself, but I also don't like real thin and lightweight shirts. I prefer something a little more substantial and that is one reason I bought it. It's also a weight that i can see myself wearing all four seasons which is something else I prefer. Outside of a couple flannels and a couple lightweight summer shirts I do have, almost all my shirts are suitable for four season use.

    The shirt construction is fantastic. It has cotton lining all through the shoulder section and the elbows, it has on interior button pocket (like you used to get on the WWM Cruiser shirt when Daiki was designing them) plus all the outside pockets. The elbow reinforcements are very nicely finished and not left rough like the workshirts....which is nice since the sleeves are designed to be rolled up which will show the white cotton lining there. The sleeves feature a one button cuff and a two button placket going up the sleeve, this to is done to facilitate easy sleeve rolling without it getting too tight on the upper arm.

    Fit is generous, much more so than their workshirts this season. I'm usually a large in the workshirt, though this season even those are getting a little too snug. The Douglas in a large fits great and can easily be worn over another shirt or by itself. I could have sized down to a medium except for the chest/shoulder fit. It's also shorter than their workshirts, which I really like.

    That is all I can think of now....let me know if you have any specific questions, happy to help if I can.

    Slide, thanks for the detailed info. Everything you described pushes this shirt towards the top of my list. I was hesitant with the khaki. I loveee the dk navy because the dark color shows the stitching well. I might have to lean on the khaki though. It has a more summer feeling.

    Yeah, that is what sold me on the khaki. I didn't want green because I have a few pair of olive green pants that I like to wear and while I think a khaki/khaki or blue/blue combo can work, I think green/green is hard to pull off without looking militant. The navy looks great but seems like a very hot color choice come summertime. Khaki seemed perfect for the best versatility.

    Inventory and Mohawk have a few items up, definitely not their full orders.

    The Japanese sites have some stuff as well.

    Has anyone ordered from these Japanese sites ('Doo Bop, Eggplant, Basies)? Any recommendations? Experience? They always seem to have the 'good stuff' and wider range. The yen has always been the killa for me.

    I have ordered from doo-bop and silver and gold. Both are excellent in service and the shipment arrives in a few days. The only problem is your gonna have to pay $100 or so more for whatever your getting, I usually order if only available in Japan and you really really want it.
