    Any Japanese stockists that sell Kapital and ship internationally? I'm enjoying browsing through some of their more recent pieces, but the mark-ups from buying through UK/US/CA stores seems ridiculous. It doesn't look that dear in Japan even adding on tax and shipping.

    You can buy straight from kapital if you use Zenmarket/ a proxy!

    None that I've been able to find, your best bet is to proxy

    Jonathan at Bandana Almanac works for Kapital and is happy to proxy stuff. I've bought stuff from him. The proxy fee is really minimal and he can help with sizing advice.

    There are a couple of great looking knits from the lookbook that are absent from the kaptial webshop and every western stockist.

    Is there any compelling reason to get nicer/more expensive basics (I'm thinking of t-shirts specifically) other than the ethics of how they're produced?

    For example, my favorite t-shirt is an H&M Divided v-neck - it fits me fairly well (compared to other shirts I've tried at least), it's cheap and thin and not 100% cotton so it drapes on my body nicely, and well, it's cheap. At $6, I could go through 4 of these for the same price as a nicer $24 t-shirt from another brand.

    On a related note, I've been meaning to replace my t-shirts recently and I was wondering if anyone could suggest any brand with a more aggressive taper for t-shirts. My problem is usually that the chest is too tight but waist/stomach is too loose.

    Well, in their defense, companies much better positioned to do so also got on the boat super late. Nike, for example, was outplayed by Lululemon, and I think is still struggling a bit with womens', having allowed a much smaller company to muscle in on their womens business.

    Apparently Nike women's wear hired one of Acronym's first designers as their head of design. I'd like to see how that goes, or apparel in general, with Nike.

    @Mulan Michaela Sachenbacher? I was wondering why the new women's line that nikelab put out looked so cool

    oh ok cool thanks @sipang

    nikelab womens collection are leaps and bounds beyond mens collections, hopefully releasing the sneaker (nikexacr) means that they'll take more risks with the clothes in the future, because last fall and this spring acg was pretty boring, it didn't even look like spring collection sold well

    Might need this, too. I've gone from basically a 0" drop (yes, that's right) earlier in the year to a 9" drop. Pretty much all of my tees are really baggy in the body, but about right in the chest, so sizing down isn't a viable option.
