    Doesn't all SF members wash and hang dry their shirts then steam press them afterwards? 5 shirts eat up about 1.5 hours Sunday mornings


    I too wish they open up store in the west coast (San Francisco) so I can try them on. Really unsure about measurements.

    Two are solid, the other 3 are different types of stripes. 75% of my shirts are blue (solid, stripes, or check) though.

    Nope. Just ordered online. I measured my bespoke shirts in cm and matched them up. If anyone is having a tough time with sizing when ordering, I highly recommend using cm instead of their converted and rounded measurements in inches.

    Has anyone already received the Ivy Chambray and could post some pictures?

    I'm waiting to order them also for sizing doubt, I don't know if I should order M in New York or L in Tokyo, probably I will order both.

    I think the convoluted measurements help keep them more exclusive. :cheers:

    BTW: y'all need to follow them on Twitter. I feel bad they only have 49 followers.

    for kamakura if it's a S/M/L instead of a neck size, then i think it would work with casual

    The Kamakura casual shirts (the knits, the Ivy, etc) are sized S,M,L...so yes, the knit is casual...it actually looks great untucked after it's been washed...more of a summer thing, obviously..
