    This is a large, the shirt fits pretty slim.
    Anyone know if they ever do sales or discounts?

    Sleeves are "short" on work shirts (relative to say, dress shirts) so that you can work with your hands without the cuffs constantly getting in the way, or more disastrously, getting caught in a piece of machinery and taking your arm with it...
    In other words, the shirt looks correct, nice find!

    Good point! Might pick up another shirt the next time Rakuten does free shipping or other special offers. Right now I have 130 rakuten points which means I get 1% off my next shirt purchase [​IMG]

    Ruffy D, shirt looks great! Nice pickup! Thanks for the pics. And the fit looks very good.

    I don't think that sales on the Lofgren goods are very likely.

    You are making me think I left Japan too soon! Very nice!

    Thanks Kashiwa! I wouldn't have noticed this shirt if meso hadn't brought it up.
    Have you received the pre-ordered boots yet?

    Oh yeah, you definitely left Japan too soon! Winter is upon us, and where's your watch cap and thermal shirts?


    Not yet. They are scheduled to arrive late December early January. Rest assured. There will be photos!

    Directly en route, or making a detour through the fine suburban paradise of Kashiwa?


    Are you talking about these?

    Tried em, but don't remember exactly. They are definitely a fuller cut, higher rise pant, so I'm sure they'll be closer to the bellybutton. The fabric is superb! Think John said it's 15oz.

    Here are some fit pics at Mushmans, but unfortunately Fujita-san is sagging his pants in the photo......
