    oh we'll definitely take it on AS SOON as it's available to us.

    i'm a big fan of well executed diffusion lines, and knowing Jan-Jan's penchant for picking perfect fabrics, combined with his ability to design my absolute favourite basics [his jumpers are just... perfect] - i'm just drooling to get my hands on something like this.

    would work as a fantastic introduction brand for our local clients, who are obviously a little shocked by the sticker price of what we do, but are slowly [& surely] developing a taste for what we carry regardless.

    Yeah there's also a full size run of the entire line on eBay being sold by a Japanese seller (or at least there was, seems like a bunch of the sizes have been sold). I'm either going to order from Coverchord or wait and hope that Calculus get it (bigger sizes please!)

    ooh thanks for pointing this out!

    i want the knit sweatshirt, knit cardigan, knit tunic sweater, and the balloon trousers... can't afford all of it right now though... :/

    i'm just obsessed with JJVE's patterns & fabrics, need to do some hands-on "research" on this ASAP.

    Let us know what you get @curiouscharles!
    And if anybody sees the grey knitted sweatshirt in L (or XL if it exists) please let me know.

    Alright well shit, I ordered the black balloon pants so we'll see how they go, I'm worried they'll be too small in the "one size" for the intended fit but measurements on Coverchord look alright.
    Still need the knit and the mesh tank (if you end up being able to stock them PLEASE pick up L's in those and I'll pay up front/pre order/whatever).

    yeah i want to at least try the black knit, just can't decide on sizing.

    i'm presuming this size scale is graded towards the japanese market, but i'm typically an S in JJVE.

    plus measurements are useless for such garments, and i'm obviously not going to get any customer service from an Ebay seller, UGH.

    edit: looks like this seller won't ship discreetly either, definitely going to have to hard pass on any of this. :/

    Does anybody know what trousers these are?

    [​IMG]

    It's an 80/20 wool/poly blend and they are called "ridges", but as far as can tell the ridges had slant pockets and these have patch pockets. It also looks like these have a cuff at them hem like the track pants so I dunno.

    Looks like they're Trousers #28, same as these but in a different fabric.

    There's new "O Project" stuff up on Coverchord.

    I still wish there was some actual sizes instead of one size fits all style.

    Jan-Jan Van Essche Project #4 is now available at Suspension Point.

    For Project #4, titled Each One Teach One, Jan-Jan Van Essche contemplates reconstruction and renewal as a creative (and spiritual) process. He celebrates the past while continuing to move forward. A major influence is Boro, a traditional Japanese technique of embroidery patchwork repair, which the designer has re-interpreted into his own vision.

    If you have questions about the designer, specific styles, sizing, or anything else don't hesitate to contact us.

    Shop the collection at suspensionpoint.ca.

    O Project has a website now including a list of stockists...seems like it's still only available in Japan. But might help hunting down pieces for a proxy purchase for anyone who's interested.

    That O project looks amazing. Is pricing comprable with his mainline?

    Supposedly cheaper as it's a diffusion line but yeah it's not really much cheaper.

    I want the turtleneck bad but either it's not made in bigger sizes or nobody buys bigger sizes since it's all in Japan.

    And I'm fully aware how horrible it looks here:

    Coverchord has the turtleneck, lantiki had pretty much everything last I checked too. @curiouscharles had talked about hopefully stocking O Project in the future as well.

    Only just saw this thread but I'm excited to see people talk about O Project. I'm a fan and hope they bring it stateside soon. Couple stockists I like:

    http://fudgeupnothing.com/?mode=cate&cbid=2111614&csid=0

    http://rideal.biz/?mode=cate&cbid=2066582&csid=0

    http://shop.kink-nagoya.com/?mode=cate&cbid=2136372&csid=0

    and Lantiki of course.

    I bought a pair of the O Project balloon pants and a hoodie earlier this year from Kink. I love them. Honestly the quality really isn't too far from 'mainline' Jan-Jan. The pieces may not have as many nice details as the usual collections but it's all made in Belgium and maximum comfy. I love that everything's one size fits all. Couldn't afford any of the knit coats but they're very nice in person, definitely my favorite part of the line.

    I actually didn't own anything from Jan-Jan's regular collections until recently and frankly, I have no clue why I waited so long. Gorgeous fabrics and his stuff pairs perfectly with all of my drapey clothes. Just grabbed a pair of pants from Suspension Point's sale, hoping they fit as well as the ones I already own.
