No, unfortunately not yet.
Maybe there will be a variant that appeals to me. So far, I was too thin and too monotonous (from the pictures). Probably I'm just spoiled by Shinki, Vicenza, Comipel and Horween. But who knows ;)
I very nearly ordered their Rough Wear, which was a spot-on repro of an original that they had been sent, but I put that on hold as I've already got a jacket order from Aero on the way and realized I was just trying to make the wait go faster. 😂

Anybody else think these chest pockets are placed too high? That irks me.

I feel like this is one of the many cases of something sized for small Japanese man, on whom those pockets would actually appear lower on the chest, and shouldn't be sold in the west at all except there are enough weebs with money to burn that it'll happen.

Every jacket is a loss. But I can afford it. I make stupid money so I don't mind it.

Flip process: Buy jacket, come up with some ridiculous reason why I don't like it, try to sell it for a phat discount, take reasonable offers just to move them quickly, move on.

Ledger: I paid $XXXX on that day. I sold for $XXX on this day. Write it down. Keep receipts.

Profit/loss: I don't wanna think about it. But there's no way this is remotely profitable. Fortunately, my income has a lot of head room profit-wise so these losses are just less money I'm going to pay in taxes.
Do the lords work and plz buy something in a xxl. Just to see if the oversized look works on you.

He'll call your bluff and get an XXL from Japan, which measures 40 across the chest. (I have many such "XXLs")

Offf. I know, in Japan I'm like a 6xl, if such a thing even exists.
