    September, for $79 USD. Depending on the exchange rate, you may be able to get them cheaper than in Japan (¥7900 yen)

    Cyc, what size do you wear for an Epaulet OCBD? Aside from a bit lighter fabric is the quality comparable? Cheers.

    Sept is soon enough and f they stay at 79 on the US side I'll probably just pay that. Unless you telling me Japan has great sales or JPY is going to rally ...

    edit: touch screen type fix always introduce some random non existent word...

    Anyone tired MTM? Want some new shirts with a damn 34.5 sleeve length. That is literally the extent of my mtm needs with regard to the tokyo slim ; - (

    You can't get a 35 sleeve in your collar size? A half inch sleeve length (especially a half inch too long) doesnt seem worth the MTM upcharge.

    A tailor can shorten the sleeves, no?

    Medium. Yes. My only quibble is that I tend to wear OCBD's untucked usually.

    I was in the store yesterday and handled a sample of the chambray shirt. It is a heavy, denim-like chambray. Not what I was hoping for but I am sure a high quality.

    New ties in the shop, nice woolen checks and solids.

    I just checked out their MTM book. Some nice stuff in the Thomas Mason book including a white Royal Oxford. I would prefer an off white Royal Oxford though.

    Any details about the MTM process? You take the plunge?

    No I didn't take the plunge but the process looks pretty basic.

    180 for MTM is hard sell, though I am sure some would take the plunge, and does a review for all :nodding:

    wow, that would be like 59 USD, extremely good pricing (if they maintain that), I would probably be taking between S and M (though I am taller than the model and a bit slimer than he is)
