Sooo... Do you think the size 2 is an OK fit for me? :hide:
Its a little hard to tell the sleeve length (looks ok in the pic) but I feel like that's usually where it gets most noticeably too small. Looks good to me, honestly, but if I were you I'd just like..

give it away to the first person who replied to you.

pic with sleeve length. Might be a touch too small and I might try to stretch them. But then again, it’s streetwear so who cares really? 💪

It doesn't look too bad to me, for me it's just more that with the ribbed cuffs rode up my wrists if it was too short and it physically bothered me a little when mine was a size too small.

Sleeve length is a tad short but it's fine doubt anyone would notice it. As long as you're not a neurotic, OCD mess like me I'd keep it if it doesn't bother you.

I think its fine, and you could always get some funky material and add some extra space if you really wanted. I've done it before but I don't think its bad at all. I wear a 2 in my ring coat and it doesn't bother me at all. I definitely would rather have the one you have right now though.

I'm also digging the boots, makes me want to get some black cowboy boots but I just money down on some of the dumbest shoes I will ever own.

I managed to snag one up from Y!J during the summer. It's actually a size smaller than I would want it to be (it's a size 2 and I have my other RCs in size 3), but I am warming up to the sizing anyway. These are so rare that I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to get it.

I actually thought about you when I purchased it. I said to myself that if it didn't work out I'd PM you and offer it to you. Anyway, if I let it go someday I'll let you have first dibs! ❤
If this was from a couple of months back, I had a feeling that someone here was the person I was going against on Y!Jp.

Low key still salty for losing out but well played

lol! I was swearing at the guy who constantly upped the price. I was actually thinking "I am sure this guy is from SF or something... No way he's living in Japan!:fu:"

Was going through my Kapital stuff and noticed that my Ainu Kesa Cardigan has a white label when the only product image I could find online has a black label. Were there fakes of these made? I feel like these are a bit more obscure than the Tsugihagi Kesa Cardigan, but you never know I guess.
