obviously off-topic, but it seems like at least a few of you would know - any recommendations for forums (other than reddit) to research moving to japan?
Find someone who has lived in Japan longer than 5 years (most people don't stay longer than that). Someone who's not an English teacher, and especially someone who's not on a business visa.

I'm not one to help, I found an indigo kathmandu shirt on sale in my size and couldn't even help myself.


Incoming today. It's raining Kapital this week.
The Kathmandu shirt is great. Love that thing. I have it both in the short sleeve and long sleeve versions (and in white!) and love it. Good pick up buddy!

Yeah I snagged a white short sleeve one on the cheap from grailed. Super cool. The indigo long sleeve one is like next level though, really cool buttons and that armpit pocket is great.

Agreed. But the pocket and buttons are basically the same on the white and indigo, amirite?

Hmm mine has some really neat blue buttons that weren't on the white. I should take some photos.

Funky buttons not to be found on my white one. I really dig the blue one. I know it’s minor, but a really cool touch. Love when Kap pays nice attention to detail.

Oh jealous. I don't have the all white stitched buttons like that on mine. I do have the top one though. :)

do folks remove the tag right under the leather Kapital belt loop patch? it seems that a few photos online show it still there on worn pairs

I took the patch that was lightly stitched into the pocket, but am going to leave the one under the leather belt patch. Looks like it's meant to be there.

@tdes81 are the measurements for the kathmandu shirt pretty accurate? I take it you got a size 4 (and wear large in 18 east)? Around 23.5" to 24" chest and 19" shoulders?
