    +1 at least on the Vintage Ivy. I guess it fits someone perfectly, but if I size up it's bigger than I'd like.

    Are there troll bots on g r @ i l e d ? Two keep submitting offers and when I accept they disappear for a while, then come back and submit same offer. one has recently switched locations from US to UK.

    what's going on here :paranoia:

    Seeing your post, and being in Midtown for one more day, I swung by the shop on Madison today to give Kamakura a look. Wound up buying two shirts and some socks. TLDR: I'm impressed.
    Been a while since I bought a BD shirt off the rack.

    As for sizing, it depends on which shirts you're looking at. The purely casual shirts that run in S, M, and L are generally sized for people of smaller statures and, for my build, the L would require too much alteration to bother with.

    However, the numerically-sized shirts are really great for the price point. Chest fit was dead on, arms were a bit slimmer cut than more traditional brands but not overly fitted. Unless you're quite jacked, I wouldn't worry about the arms. One gripe is that the length of the shirts allow them only to be worn tucked in, but I suppose these are the dressier options (though they come in more casual prints as well).

    The material is what swayed me though. Love that Japanese fabric.

    I received the same message on a pair of Margiela sneakers I have for sale, for some stupid reason I decided to answer him and contact him via email. Guy sent me a fake paypal e-mail "confirming" payment to my account and then insisted on mailing me saying he had made the payment and asking me to ship the sneakers "ASAP"

    His delivery address was on Nigeria, Google Maps says it's some sort of consignment shop, too bad there's no street view.

    Anyhow, pretty entertaining. If he had put more work on the fake email some people might fall for it.

    You would be surprised, people still fall for Nigeria letters and mails saying that their CC has been tampered with, so they need to send the info.

    That feel when your boss puts a pen mark on your SLP bomber and says "oops, can I clean it with some water?"
