has anyone used a proxy service for Real McCoys Japan to the Uk recently? I am struggling to find what I want through any of the proxy sites I've found on here. Keen to pick up the Joe McCoy's 30s Deerskin leather jacket. Many thanks, Josh

I wrote to RMC UK and they were able to get anything I wanted from RMC JP and sent it to me in about 2 weeks.

Could I get some advice on John Lofgren lasts please? I have a pair of moc toe boots on the 130 last and wondered how the service and combat boots on the 120 last compare. Go with same size? Thanks in advance.

The sizing advice from s&s has been spot on for me. Half size down from brannock for the m-43 and engineers, and I'd go with a full size down for the combat boots

I will only tuck in a part of the shirt (left or right side). My t-shirts are Reigning Champ and on the longer side so they typically peak out the bottom, but I tuck in a side a bit so it's not uniform all around. I do like the t shirt to show at the bottom of a sweatshirt to add in some color.

I’m sure you’re right but please could you elaborate?
We'll, on its own I prefer to leave the T untucked as I don't have a gym bod and unless one is doing manual work it seems a little cosplay-ish to me. If wearing an overshirt or jacket I'd much sooner tuck the T.
I'm guessing my opinion would be a tiny minority here.

I've tried the tucked t look and mostly feel goofy wearing it that way. I know it's the usual look for repro style but at least for me, not living in a big city such a ny, can look cosplay as noted. I do however wear t's that are shorter, maybe 1-2" below belt line which gives a similar silhouette and works well with higher rise pants.

Should’ve mentioned all my T shirts are on the shorter side.

I tuck in everything wether button down shirt, or t-shirt. Only exceptions being gym clothes. I would honestly feel weird if I didn't tuck in at this point, but I'm definitely full repro day in and day out for the most part.
