    Yeah Koto will last at least four wears.

    IIRC they did denim workshirts a few years back with the EG style red bottom button. I know that's not exactly a huge innovation but still: Shameless.

    oh man. rebuild jacket came in today. way too awesome. this thing is wild and the build quality is top notch. fits surprisingly slim (size small fits like size xs in eg jackets). hopefully some fit pics this weekend. can't wait to wear this to work tomorrow and see what my coworkers say...

    how is the fit on the rebuild shirts? obviously it's going to vary, but in general? are they as slim as the jackets?

    I got a medium from Silver and Gold and it's tiny in the shoulders, big in the chest and short on the sleeves. But I'm guessing they vary pretty wildly. Good luck.

    I find that the rebuild shirts are boxy and the sleeves are short, I have a large and had to get one of the sleeves lengthened (only one though!).

    It wouldn't have been an issue if the shorter sleeve wasn't too short- it fell about 2" short of my wrist and was really irritating so I had panel that sort of matched inserted from another flannel that I bought from a vintage fair.

    Did anyone pick up the MA1 x M65 piece this season? If so, how did you size it/how does it run?

    Fresh kop: just left Nepenthes after scoring this amazing Needles Three Button Loafer Jacket.

    Fabric is gorgeous. Partially lined and toasty warm.

    Wanted to believe I could fit into a medium as the sleeves were perfect but settled for large. Took the hit on tax but they gave me a lovely tote to show their appreciation. I love NNY!

    Looks to be big? What was wrong with the medium?

    I couldn't button it. I'll live with the large for a day and maybe exchange.
