    there used to be some kapital discussion on sufu, but mostly about the denim though. I also used to be super interested in the brand, love alot of the lookbooks and so on, but never got around to actually order anything.

    Was Kapital really popular on SuFu in the past? Where did people get it from?

    And your images are broken for me :-/


    Unfortunately, never popular enough. I started the thread when I received a pair of their jeans, but the brand never really picked up there. Probably too advanced for the very conformist, very boring SuFu users.

    I have a few pieces that I had to have proxied, and except for a store in San Francisco that sells their jeans at insulting prices, I don't think the brand is available outside of Japan.

    OK good to know, thanks for that. Yeah I'm not too interested in the jeans so I'll hit up a proxy if the time comes to pick some up.

    Also, does anyone have any info on the source of this image? Is it from a lookbook? Style blogger? forum poster?

    Some good budget tees from our fun brands on Yoox:

    [​IMG]

    Penfield $32



    And these are all promotional items from some event that I didn't bother to look into but I'll link to them anyway since they're pretty cool. all are $55

    White Mountaineering



    [​IMG]

    Undercover in Black and White


    [​IMG]

    Hysteric Glamour - probably my least favorite of the bunch


    [​IMG]

    Wacko Maria - I really want this one but it's only available in Medium. Do you think since it's from a Japanese event the medium will be closer to a US small?

    Also they've had them for a while but they have shorts in the UC forest print for $195, unfortunately the smallest size is a 3.

    I wish I could wear capes and cloaks, especially unknown pleasures capes.
