    Ahh, was wondering what happened :( Hope the future holds many dogs for the Van Burens!
    I had dogs all through my childhood but can't responsibly own pets living abroad, live vicariously through internet dogs. First thing when I move back home I'm adopting a black lab!!

    Is Synthese going to hang out with Stanley and Mrs van Buren? When will the day come for me?


    Speaking of dogs, I don't have a dog yet...but next door's Rufus is very friendly and often comes over....and has taken to both my twins, and a particular spot in my house. This was a couple of months ago:

    Jil, Raf, Prada, MJ, Lanvin sometimes

    Separate RFT: unlike Junya and Thom Browne, Nick Wooster does not seem to know how to make a wacky patchwork jacket that's wearable, let alone desirable.

    You can check out Kamakura, I believe they make pants in Japan.

    For plain trousers, if you don't need luxe, I'd head to Club Monaco or the closest equivalent.

    People seem to recommend Uniqlo for cheap button-ups, sweaters, and pretty much everything but trousers (hah). Might be worth a shot? I don't have any experience with Uniqlo, though, aside from one Jil/+J blazer.

    Since you're in Japan, try Attachment (not even KKA)?

    Thanks, I think we have Club Monaco here. Wish there was a J. Crew. I'll check out Kamakura as well. Uni-qlo dress pants are sadly subpar - really cheap fabrics. Dress shirts are too, but that doesn't seem to bother me as much.

    Someone at a store said Incontex is good as well. I might just get another pair of Comme des Garçons Homme Deux, seems like a waste to go there and get the most boring pair of pants.
