Hmm gotta find a stockist, I live in Kyoto. We don't get as much cool shit as Osaka or Tokyo in second hand stores, and return policy for most places online are abysmal. I want to try stuff though so I'll search around and see what I can find. Jackets and shirts are easy, pants can be a pain though.

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 in the ass with the tees though with how often you have to wash them.
