I own a few knits by them, typically TTS and really nice quality.

@jtorres94 it's too much. Did you look at the atelier & repairs or 18 east versions? I think blue blue Japan did it too but don't remember how it turned out.

Probably should go with something with less, so Atelier & Repairs is a good direction. Didn't even think of Blue Blue Japan but i know they do patchwork jackets

Junya Watanabe does the best patchwork denim. I don’t mind that FDMTL pair if that is the look you are going for, but might as well go with Junya.

Atelier & Repair does good work also, but more subtle and a completely different aesthetic.

I'm not a stickler for authenticity, but I prefer ones that look a bit more authentically repaired. B-Sides does this for womenswear, and the fits are a bit more high-waisted and cropped. Don't know if they would work in a men's outfit, but you can basically buy used jeans like this at a local thrift, then bring scraps of denim to your local alterations place and have it repaired. These jeans below, which are $350, are basically just recycled vintage.

Thoughts on Nonnative guardian vest in black.





Looks cool in the pics but not so sure about in real life.

@Timbaland I would pass on the NN vest. Seems rather boring. To me, it does not add much to the fits in the photos.

Also, depends if you are a vest wearer. I have a couple of EG vests that I bought with the best intentions, but find I never bother to incorporate them into anything I am wearing.

Thanks, I'm pretty much a t-shirt and pants guy and wanted something else up top for layering. I hear you on EG vest thing, I'd probably do the same thing.

I got this NR Geneve jacket from yoox and it looks like it fits a half size big, but not terrible. Should I keep it? Usually a 42R and this is an XL.
