Swung back through the Armoury Westbury today so I could try the Grizzly again in a larger size, and so that @upsett1_spaghett1 could see the J-24.
I totally appreciate it! Damn, the J-24 looks awesome. I think that might have to be my 30th Bday present for myself.

Also the Grizzly is just spectacularly cool. Every pic, it grows on me a lot

My dad doesn’t care for style but he has an eye for quality. When I talked to him earlier today he was wearing a UES ultra heavy flannel I gave him after it didn’t work out for me. I think I’ll be fine too.

Paul Newman repro lol

What's the name for this style of shorts? I had a similar pair with the small pockets on the thighs I found at a thrift a long time ago and have always wanted to replace them but haven't had luck.

I think trousers with front pockets are called Bush pants. Those shorts are definitely cut offs.

Michael at The Armoury sent me this scan of an old interview with Hitoshi Tsujimoto taken from Inventory magazine, Ryan Willms' now-defunct enterprise. It's the most comprehensive article I've yet read regarding the brand. I especially like the part where Tsujimoto paid people to improve on Christopher Nolan's work.

Really nice read. I do wonder how the company will continue now that his son is running it. Not sure how long ago Tsujimoto retired. The impression I had from one of the staff in the Tokyo shop was that his son wasn't nearly as interested nor invested in the brand which is understandable. The brand has such a large footprint in Japan I'm sure it'll be fine, but outside of leather jackets and maybe a few other select things, theres not a lot in recent seasons that I've lusted after.
