    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Damnit I wish I hadn't missed the patchwork western shirts. Anyone got a line on a size 4? Maybe size 3. Been on a western shirt kick really - anything besides plain chambray/denim.

    The webshop still has the darker ones in a 3 and 4 (very slim fitting by the size guide - too slim for me :( ) http://www.kapital.jp/e-store/detail.php?id=KOR508LS59&key=5246&category=55

    There's a nice NOS Kountry one on yahoo: http://zenmarket.jp/auction.aspx?itemCode=m154867729 (reliable seller).

    and a sz3 gingham if you want to go really western for peanuts: http://zenmarket.jp/auction.aspx?itemCode=f131932328

    Hey I was curious if there were any other Kapital stockists in the US, other than Unionmade and Blue In Green Soho?

    Standard and Strange carries a few things on its site and possibly more in-store.

    They definitely carry more in store than they list on their website. The one time I stopped in they had some ring coats that I don't recall ever seeing on their website.

    Cotton Sheep in Hayes Valley carries Kapital as well.

    If they've still got them on their web site I'd check on Kapital.jp - their measurements have always been spot on in my experience. From memory though they were quite small fitting this season a Size 4 was 110cm/43" chest. in the ones I looked at (they measure total circumference rather than p2p). I always check individual pieces - I've got Kapital jackets in a 3 that are roomy and 4's that are really snug.

    ^Thanks, the S/S 14's that I tried were tight not only in the chest/shoulders but also the sleeves !!

    Found some measurements and 3 may work. Am a true 40 US and need 18" in the shoulders to wear as I like...

    First world problems......

    Enjoy

    What we have in-store - right now, we've got one size 3 ring coat in black twill, a few shirts, a boro document case, and a lot of Cisco in indigo and in century. The ring coats didn't last long enough in any quantity to put online.

    do they have a red cast to them? or is that more the product of the applied filter?
