    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Usually pretty high armholes, slim chests, and tight calves, but it varies piece to piece. A lot of the outerwear is pretty reasonable, though the skinny pants are off-limits to all but the stringiest of the bean-people. I'd stay away from the tailored pieces as well, unless you're after a mid-2000s Hedi Slimane look. A couple of the pant cuts are quite nice with roomy thighs and a sharp taper, however.
    They do outerwear VERY well, especially compared to similar military-inspired outerwear from brands like Attachment, wjk, and Rick Owens - warm thinsulate linings and strong, dense, water repellent fabrics that are sometimes lacking from the aforementioned brands. It's not "luxe," but it'll keep you warm and dry.

    Highlights:

    Cotton mods coat

    Melton wool parka

    Slim jodpur jean. I really like these, excellent if you're looking for a minimal jean with a high rise, decently sized top-block, and nice slim leg.

    Wool gingham flannel with a hidden placket, long body, and stand collar. Cool layering piece

    A guy I know had his clothing shop completely burgled for Folk clothing 3 times, someone must be selling it as a retailer or online otherwise it makes zero sense.

    I remember we've discussed that mods coat before @nicelynice. It's so good... I was looking on rakuten for a while.

    They pop up quite a bit on Rakuten but differ on details every season. A couple of them have details I'm not in love with, but for the most part they're very solid pieces.

    thanks nn. that melton parka looks really nice. I also like their mohair knits which looks a bit more generous in sizing.

    I don't know these Japanese brands, but from what I saw, the price range and aesthetic are very similar to Acne. Much easier to find in the west, and no imported mark-up.

    Luxury shop, they have mens, kids and home stuff as well.

    That add reminds me of ********* ads from back in the day.

    I'm getting in from Vermont that morning. Hopefully will be able to do 15h but if not I can easily meet up with you guys later if need be. Cambridge is good with me. Back Bay too. I'm flexible.

    Skip the tie bar, but tie eight or nine pocket squares together and stuff them into your chest pocket. Then, when the moment is exactly right, pull the pocket square out ... and keep pulling and pulling and pulling. Like a magician.
