    I hope not. I wouldn't recommend insulting a Dutch person about their cheese to their face.

    I don't understand...I wasn't being rude, I was merely stating facts!

    Besides, the Dutch are notorious for being "DIREKT"...aka, straight-forward, to the point of being rude. Even more so than Germans.

    Or are we talking about some imaginary Holland, where people don't smoke 200 cigarettes a day, where they eat only fresh lean meats, fresh vegetables that taste like heirloom organics like eaten by Mrs van Buren, and the finest Gouda cheese....where children speed skate on frozen canals in the winter while playing hide-and-seek in the windmills and the fragrant tulip fields in summer, where handsome perfect-figured 6'2" Greek God-bodied men in white shirts, Incotex pants and braces, wear wooden shoes while doing country dances with buxomed blonde maidens wearing that ridiculous black-red-and-white driedl-like thing..

    Which is weird because Jun himself is not a small guy. Daiki Suzuki and his bro who designs ts(s) are likewise pretty big dudes. Of course EG makes a reasonable XL

    More 'workwear' (horrible term but it will have to do) inspired collections do seem to cover the larger sizes better. At 6'1" a 43" chest and 36" (on a good day :embar: ) waist I'm at the extreme end of many designers ranges, and beyond an awful lot. I know mid-40's flabby English men aren't probably the key target audience, but there are a lot of younger fitter guys much bigger than me.

    They fit kinda weird IMO, at least the 5-panels. I tried one and it sat way higher on my head than an EFF 5-panel. Ended up returning it.

    In Amsterdam I see some of the "biggest" people in the sense that they are both tall and large, viking invaders tend to be taller than me however a lot of them are rather slim/athletic while many Dutch are built to throw tree trunks in their spare time.

    They're also responsible for this masterpiece.
