I'm looking for a a fitted hoodie with no silly prints or embroidery.

I really like the Mr. Olives on Atsui. What other brands of nice Japanese hoodies are there besides the ones on Atsui (Mr. Olive and MofM)? Is it available online in the States?

Thanks

I would highly recommend getting a Mr. Olive hoodie when you see a style you like. The quality and details are amazing.

Loopwheeler is great as well, I just purchased one for myself on my last trip. It is sold at Ships and Beams which you may be able to get through Rakuten.

Any chance Atsui getting LW stuff in the near future? I know there was a thread started on what we wanted Atsui to carry....

LW is nice. Need to get a black hoodie.

Possibly distant future. I met with them, but it is a very traditional Japanese company and we will need to build a relationship for a while before any possibilities. In the mean time....proxy.

One thing I did learn about Loopwheeler, heather gray and white is softer than other colors. All others are dyed and technically "cooked" which causes them to be not quite as soft. Other colors are good, but I would recommend heather gray or white. You can only tell the difference if you have both side by side, but the difference is pretty substantial.
