    That is insane, I wish they'd make bigger sizes[​IMG]
    I ordered the Medium in the knitted hoodie, but sometimes even the size Large in wjk fits me tightly! wjk is the only brand that I own S, M, and L pieces from. If wjk were to offer larger sizes they would likely only be available outside of Japan and at insanely high prices-- likely similar to what Blackbird or The Archive charges for Julius. But I suspect there is no market for it since the brand does not show in Paris, look avant garde, or distinctive enough to justify this level of pricing in customers minds. That hoodie would cost well over $1000 if sold at a store in the US. Would you be willing to pay that much?

    nice pickup on WJK. Their stuff is incredible value for the price considering the quality - do not hesitate to pick up the Tight Heavy Jersey hoodie if it's an item anyone is interested in, quality on par with the MA+ aviator http://zozo.jp/shop/wjk/goods.html?gid=679490&rid=1011 I just picked up a pair of wjk jeans, will post when they arrive

    i'm not really squeemish about price tags, but i'm having trouble wrapping my head around a cotton hoodie being an "incredible value for the price considering the quality" at nearly $800. i guess it's cheaper if you get paid in yen? i wouldn't argue with someone justifying $800 if they love the design, but for the quality...?

    so... it's like i suggested.. it's just cause of the yen? what's an approximate translation into dollars that's adjusted for the yen killing the dollar right now?

    It fits perfectly, tried it on every time I went into opening ceremony for a couple months.
