    probably the most difficult part for any online store who just start, perhaps a show case in Brooklyn/Manhattan some time?

    Spoo is the man. Always the first to big-up his brethren, from when Vanda started to now Ikire. He gets my vote for model citizen. Wale, I'll pull the trigger on a square soon.

    Love the look of some of the jackets, and a great story for the brand- hope it does well.

    One question which may be more my ignorance than anything else; for the measurements I'm not familiar with "chest to lapel edge" and "chest to break" as opposed to "pit to pit" chest measurements on jackets. Could you explain how these are taken (and/or provide the pit to pit measurements?).

    I'm also assuming the back length measurements are from the bottom of collar. Would you consider offering your jackets in short sizing as well as regular and long?

    I'm drooling over that blue jacket but probably can't justify getting one because I really wouldn't ever get a chance to wear it, but I'll definitely be buying a pocket square or two. (Hey! I actually got around to making a post!)
