hmmm I was looking at this https://item.rakuten.co.jp/kind-u/8055000139337/ actually. It's linen but no idea
also this https://item.rakuten.co.jp/jumblestore/2334451134914/

I wish it was easier to do returns and stuff but most shops on rakuten dont accept returns really. It's kinda lame, although ragtag does allow it but there is none at the moment I think
You might already know this, but if not the the 2nd one is from 2nd street, and if you get a 2nd street members card which is free, and use their website to order things to try on at the store nearest to you, free of charge. I used to do it all the time. DM if any questions.

Did not know that actually! I'll contact you, but that sounds like a great idea. Im trying to get some more Linen, Japanese summer can be absolute shit. I'll go ask about it at the store maybe and make a membership card while I am at it.

Picked up the Sumi Ink Three Pocket. After seeing how much it was bleeding I decided to give it machine wash on gentle, in a net, and with no soap. I wish I had pictures to show how it looked before but it changed dramatically. I'm not super happy with the way the back looks specifically, but I dig everything else.

I'd definitely recommend a hand wash for anyone who picks up one of these pieces.

Here's a couple more in slightly different lighting. The back isn't nearly as white as the photos above make it look.

I try to avoid machine washing any EK. I did it once to a pair of blue hemp twill pants (the same that's released this season) and it just ruined the feel of the fabric. It's a pain ********** with the tees though with how often you have to wash them.

Lol after one day of wearing my indigo big shirt I had blue all over my hands and the shoulders of my white tee I had underneath. The indigo washed out of the tee, but there was no doubt about the bleeding.

I hand wash woolens but just do a delicate cycle with no spin on EK cottons, linens, and hemp and never had an issue. That said I stay away from anything that's really delicate so take it with a grain of salt.

Yeah, I've machine washed some other hemp and cotton pieces of his with no issue. I should have known better with the dyeing process used on this piece, though. Oh well! Luckily it's still very much wearable and I'm happy with the piece.
