Honestly depends on what you're looking for. I haven't really liked the normal blue century denim in the past as it stands out too much, but I think they look a bit more muted/normal. Will be curious how they end up wearing out.

You mean the 123s? I guess youre not a fan of the kakishibu and sumi versions then either...

If anyone has a size 3 bandana sumi jacket in size 3 that wants to trade for my size 4 I’d be down!

I might be interested in your size 4 if you can't find a trade. Let me know.

I’ll probably keep it unless I get a price where I can just buy a 3 directly. It’s just a little long for me is all. But dm me. It still has tags and everything

does anybody know how bad the indigo bleed/transfer on the feather jacket is?
I wore my jacket for the first time the other day and I did get a little bit of blue hands by wearing it. Not as much as when wearing a brand new pair or raw denim or anything, but I guess it does bleed a bit after all.

I hope to get a Boro jacket myself this year. I hope the rerelease the blanket lined model again. I really like the idea of having at least one blanket jacket.

Was lookin around the net for one myself on a whim, and saw one sold on a secondhand site last year for like $400...really hurt.

To be clear, the jacket I was talking about above was the feather denim trucker. I've worn the boro jacket as well and there was no bleeding at all. 👍

I wouldn't want the blanket lined version personally. Where I live it would be too cold for fall and winter and too hot for most of the other time of the year. Also, the blanket lined version would be way too hot to wear indoors as a "sweater". I just think I would get way less use out of it compared the the spring jacket version.

BTW, do they still make the blanket lined ones? Afaik they stopped making them several years ago and now only do the spring jacket version. @BandannAlmanac ?

BTW a few months ago I saw a second hand blanket lined Boro jacket on YJP go for more than the Japanese retail of a new one. So they seem to be very expensive even used. Ymmv of course.

boro this, boro that, when are you going to stop boro-ing money and get a job
The coincidence is that actually applies to me. Due to the pandemic, even though I finally got back to Japan, work has been postponed until the end of the state of emergency. Luckily my wife has been sugaring me with enough money to make food but not enough for boro. She won't let me boro for that...

I probably will end up getting the spring one if they don't rerelease the blanket lined version, but here in Japan it definitely works. Plus I run cold, my ass can wear outerwear until it's like 28 C. I got to save money anyway so I probably won't get it till fall due to the fact that once it's hot, it's only linen/shorts/t shirts here.

I often see certain Kapital pieces sell for way more than they should on YJP like century denim and boro stuff. I don't really understand why since you can easily go to the store or call them and get it shipped from the store too. like century going for more than its worth in store. Is this for like drop shippers or something?

Yeah I saw that one on The Real Real after it sold and was astonished at the price as well. Must really be an exception to the rule since all used ones I’ve seen sell for way over jp retail.

If it feels any better, these jackets run very small so a size 3 wouldn’t fit you anyway.
