    Carve/Blends in Orange Country, CA has the jackets/shirts but no tights or shorts. Ive got way to much of it now and I still want more. Stupid hype. Jet might know a secret spot or something.

    They are getting the LunarSpider and LunarGlide in the Gyakusou colors. I think they only run them up to size eleven though, which is useless to me. The price point on the lunarspiders (racing flat) is not any higher than the standard model, which makes me want to grab a pair, but I need them in 12.

    wjk check shirt in black (previous one I bought was blue). Fabric and hardware on these shirts is fantastic-- thick semi stiff material with cool looking metal buttons. And more importantly they look good untucked, something that cannot be said for most button down shirts I've tried.

    Yeah, it should be available in the NSW stores. Just saw it at 21 Mercer and the Niketown stores in NY. Shirts, jackets, shorts, but no tights. Give them a call, you should be able to phone order from at least the Niketown store.

    I like Victory Prima Pils a lot, that's what I usually recommend, and I drink it often, although it IS fruitier than the original European pils. Bitburger's pilsner is good--abends Bit, morgens fit. Brooklyn makes a decent pils, not sure if it's seasonal. There are lots of other European pilsners with Germanic names. If you're at a bar and you see one you don't recognize (i.e., not Becks, Spaten, Czechvar, St Pauli, etc.) order it and it will probably taste good.

    +1 on prima pils. Ithaca has a good one too, though you probably can't find it.

    Brooklyn pils is not seasonal. But then again I live in Brooklyn so it's not tough to find Brooklyn brews. Also, if you haven't tried it, the Brooklyn Pennant Ale is really good. It's a little on the lighter side. Goes well with pretty much any food.

    I'm not a big Pilsner drinker (more ale) but I second the recommendation on Bitburger
