Not really familiar with the intricacies of Real McCoys distribution but does most/all of their stuff usually make it's way to US retail shops? Dig this rugby but prefer U.S. return option.

They don’t have a US presence outside of Standard & Strange and The Armoury, the latter being a temporary arrangement for now. The Armoury will not be receiving that based on what I’ve recently heard from them re shipments. You can contact S&S to see if they plan to.

Also see top of this thread for general stockist info.

Lost & Found in Toronto is another option.

I dig it too, this reminds me a lot of the color-blocked Gymboree fits I rocked in Pre-Kindergarten (this is not a diss, I was ballin' as a kid). I'll try to dig up a picture

Anyone with sweatshirt experience in both The Strike Gold and RMC can tell me if RMC makes a good product in comparison?

I have several examples of both, both are equally good quality in my opinion. Fabric on RMC is a bit softer to my hand. Biggest difference in my experience is in fit though - Strike Gold shrinks down so I had to size up, whereas RMC is true to size. Also the RMC models I've owned have been slightly longer (accounting for sizing up in the RMC) - so my size L TSGs are slightly shorter in the body/sleeves than my RMCs.

Both are excellent, particularly if you can get lightly used pieces second hand on ebay/grilled (can be had for <=$100 pretty regularly).

Pretty sure I saw an older dude wearing this in the Bronx.

I have been curious about that hunting jacket since it dropped and then sold out at S&S.

It is bold, but from pics, can’t decide if it is the epitome of cool or too carnival-like.

Thoughts?

A bit bold for me to work into my wardrobe with regularity, although I could see it. I do dig the piece. I think the pants + jacket combo would definitely be a lewk.
