    I just got an email that their new collection was on their website (www.yokod.com). For someone who hasn't been very impressed with this label since spring of 2005, this coming collection looks pretty awesome. They keep with the tradition of making staples with fleece but instead of just blazers and pants, there are now sweaters, vests, cardigans (I want one), scarfs, sweatshirts, and a peacoat. There is also some amazing looking outerwear and the t's look better than the last two seasons. Too bad there are no stockists anywhere by me to see the stuff in person.

    The email also said that every item from spring/summer is still on sale for $20 including fleece blazers, etc.

    Yeah, that and bigger pictures would be nice. Last time they had a big sale, I just e-mailed Andy and had him put together a grab bag of stuff for me since they were sold out of the specific things I wanted. Now that they have their own store up and running, they probably would handle all the phone/email orders.

    Hmmm... I'm impressed, especially since I thought that they'd really bit it after a very strong F/W 2004-2005 season, and a semi-reasonable S/S 2005 then, pretty much nothing...

    Fleece blazers for $20, huh? How do I get those? At 152 lbs and 5'11", should I go for a small or a medium for a slim fit?

    Hmm... A $20 blazer would do me nice. Did you pick it up from them or had it shipped?

    I had it shipped. It was from a couple seasons ago, so I don't know how it fits compared to the current ones, but a medium fits me pretty well. I would email Andy Salzar ([email protected]) or call the store to see what they have left (718-302-1450). I might actually consider picking up another one since the one I have has a graphic on the back which limits its use. Also, lol at the activeendeavors description:

    Just snagged a black cashmere cardigan and a small grey fleece blazer.
    Not sure how they'll fit but heck $49 shipped. Adam was really quick with responses.
