RMC takes this shit seriously.
As in the sales agreement around discounting? I'm assuming they have a clause that says one cannot discount. But I also imagine Yoox-Net-a-Porter is large enough to get around it.

I've seen RMC discounted by 10% on European sites before.

Policy is no discounting period. I don't think Mr. Porter was a good fit for them anyway, given how poorly they did on the product copy.

Real talk: do you look at and critique copy from suppliers and vendors? I had an experience writing copy for Yuketen some eight years ago. As a Liberal Arts major I found it difficult to avoid flourish while providing more than dry facts. Of course this means I missed my deadline.

I definitely do. Mr Freedom and Motiv do the best job with giving me everything up front I need for good informative copy. The Real McCoy's will give me everything but I gotta call or email Kento for it.

I like the vest and much more so than the riding jacket in the same cloth.
I like the coat but it is a material and pattern that you can reach your fill of pretty quickly. A vest is a more manageable portion.

Miloh has a boat load of The Real McCoy's in last sizes on sale on Garmentory: https://www.garmentory.com/sale/the-real-mccoy-s/men?scat=779

Note they're in Canada. I'm not sure the statues of import/export duties there, although my J-24L came from Toronto. I believe fees were factored in to the cost there.
