    I also forgot to mention that if you previously purchased a styleforum hoodie for, I believe, $65, I will take $25 off of your first order. I don't want people to feel cheated since it is now almost half the price [​IMG]
    I think the MJK corporate slogan should be "We hate money; would you like a hug?" Seriously, excellent stuff and unreasonable prices. Your stuff's generally far from my aesthetics, but if I had money right now, I think I'd be throwing it at you anyway on general principle.

    The Italian linen hoodie jacket is great for spring. I had the sample in my hands, and was quite tempted to, ahem, "lose it", only to find it for spring... The fit is relaxed but slim, the way a light spring jacket, especially in linen, ought to be.

    The construction and materials are as good or better than a good part of most of the higher end designer companies out there (lots of similarities to Marni and Margiela pieces), the main difference being that the zippers in those companies tend to be Lampos or Riris, not accessible in general except through custom order, and MJK uses YKK zippers. In the diffusion category (where lots of us uy, very few companies (Rogan, w+h/Wings & Horns, and Acne are the only ones I can think of) use trims of that quality.

    Nah...I changed my mind. It's just too hot.

    Does the grey have a blueish tint to it or is it just the photos?


    Yes, the gray does have a blue cast to it...

    The racing jacket is amazingly cool and I like the asymmetrical hoodie, as well (wish I had ordered it when it was still available in brown). I really need to get a better job so I can actually buy stuff instead of just staring at photos of it on the Internet. [​IMG] Good luck!

    We will probably be offering brown as a color option for our knits in the next month or two.

    Thanks for the well wishes...

    I nearly wet my pants at the sight of that racer jacket...

    As for the knits, they're cheaper than AA in the UK. Think I'll have to pick up a couple of hoodies, and get a job asides from being a wannabe property baron for that jacket.

    I can't tell from the pictures, but how thick/warm are the hoodies compared to a standard cheap brand like AA?

    All our knits are lightweight. They are all made from 9.5oz organic combed cotton jersey...

    is it just me or do the measurements seem a bit odd? I usually wear a medium (~38 chest) but, comparing the measurements of that linen hoodie jacket to my french F2 that fits me quite well, I'd need an XS or S..? also, hope you don't mind me posting this here (from sufuuu) [​IMG] [​IMG] looks badass [​IMG]

    I really like that t-shirt too, is it another of your friend's prints?

    Ott, I'm a 39 inch chest, and usually wear a medium as well. I just bought the small Linen jacket sample. The one in the pic. MJ (the Jordan of small, independent knitwear!) shipped it out just a little bit ago, and I'll post pics when I get it. That should give a pretty good idea of the fit when sized down one.

    I'm still disappointed he didn't call his line J. Krell.
