    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.

    They're both amazing, especially the jacket, which fits great, is super-warm, and is obviously going to last forever.


    That's a nice jacket but anything with ribbing isn't going to last forever (at least you'll have to replace the ribbing at some point)

    being 'Made in Japan' is a good point, of course that can be all over the place but it's a good start. They have high aspirations, considering they were a printed tee shirt brand at the beginning, but don't we all? [​IMG]

    If you buy an outerwear piece, get it from a place with a good return policy. I've salivated over many of their jackets, and tried quite a few on in person. Their fits and patterns seem to be all over the place. In some jackets, a Small is loose on me - in others a Large is skin-tight.

    I'm a huge fan of their styling though.

    The things I've tried seemed pretty consistent... weird.

    NDG is an ok brand, nothing exceptional style or quality wise, and I think that the MIJ hype isn't worth the pricing.

    Who even carries this stuff with a decent selection? Who puts it on sale?

    Kiosk78, a UK retailer, had a decent selection of their S/S stuff that got marked down a fair amount not long ago.

    I'd like to buy some of their knitwear, but I wonder whether military surplus gear which NDG pieces are based on would be a better value. I'd expect the quality to be good and the cuts to be good, considering that most guys in the military are in good shape.

    Costs will continue to rise. Inflation is much much higher than CPI, especially on commodities.

    sorry but i don't think you understand economics very well

    I would say that NDG rising costs are because of growing popularity more than anything

    From 2006, still my take on it. If you read the thread you'll see dodonggho (sp) saying he'd never wear a leather shirt in reference to my carpe leather shirt, he probably owns two by now. Jet also talks about coping CDiem boots and I know he did a couple (?) months later. You can also see how a lot of people weren't as desensitized about pricing as they now are (I call it reasonably priced for what is is and some reacted strongly against that).

    For those who don't live in ny, you should try to find a proxy during sales seasons. (There are a few members who do nyc pick up for a fee on sufu). You can find some great deals at 70% and last seasons stocks. Last week, they have the nylon helmet bag from ss 08 on sales for $50. i went back today, they jacked up the price to $93. Also their lower level is awesome. a few weeks ago, they had common projects, p. ervell, boO on sales for 60%/70% off.

    boO style is so preppie for work and hangout. the style is very NYC!

    personally, i dont think they fit asians very well. theyre either too big or too small. the shirt sleeves are reallie long too. i like boO nevertheless!

    They have a women's line, some of the jackets and shirts fit men well as they're meant as a sorta "girls dressing in boys clothes" line.
