    Some of those Guild of Crafts models cross the line into Bad Taste That Only The Rich Can Afford. I think they are the only maker on this thread who I don't like that much, and they are by far the most expensive of the bespoke makers in the Tokyo area at least.

    I believe they have a small RTW range, but it is only sold in the Osaka shop, there is a few in his Japanese website.


    Really?
