And what about this washed denim Sukiyaki Western shirt from Kapital? Maybe together with that cord trucker? 🤔

I own a persimmon version of this design and would recommend it for all the cool little details and ways to wear it. I'm not super hot on this washed denim version but if you do pull the trigger I'd recommend buying slightly oversized so it looks less comical if you decide to wear it wrapped around.

I think the sukiyaki shirt is very cool.

I ordered the sukiyaki coverall a few months ago, but ended up returning it because I did not love the fit and I probably own too many coveralls to begin with.

Agree it should be a bit oversized/loose otherwise it will look like you lost some buttons and are clumsy with a stapler.
Cool piece though.

I want another 1 or 2 knit polos.
I have a Lemaire shirt sleeve and long sleeve from the current season and have been wearing them both a lot, especially the short sleeve.
So I’ve been trying to find something similar for a while.
knit fabric
Ideally a zip placket, or a longer placket or even a full placket.
something with a retro vibe.
I am open to any recs people may have. But so far these are on the short list.


if anybody has experience with any of these or tips for something else please let me know.


so far I’m leaning toward one of the top 2, but not sure I can find the first one in my size.
The Yuri and Yuri ones all look nice (pic 3 - 6) too, I’d never heard of them before so I have no idea what they’re like or what size I would be.

I like the neutral coloration and simple but appealing textures of the first one and the similar one right above the Etro polo, but they both have buttonless split collars which are a dealbreaker for me.

The Etro paisley would look better in a different colour IMO (especially green), something about the little flecks of purple and yellow looks off with the blue tone.

Of these, as-is, I would probably go for the zig-zag #2. Out of curiosity, is it Missoni?

The second one (zig zag) is Christian Kimber.
I don’t mind the open collar, but I see your point, i never fasten a polo to the top anyway.

Orley, which is a defunct brand, used to make excellent polo knits (and excellent knits in general). Fit was always TTS, but slim. You may want to see if anything ever shows up on the secondary sites.

Well thanks everyone for chiming in. I honestly can't say wether I think the shirt is pure genius, pure madness or maybe both. Or if it's just plain bad. Maybe that's come il faut with Kapital...

Anyway, I feel somewhat strangely drawn to it. So maybe the only way to say is to get it and see if it sticks.
