    I wish there are more brick and mortar stores in the US that carry them. So before Blue Blue Japan's site closed down, I ordered their Straw Pastoral Hat in size medium. So I got it today after being released from custom and sadly, it doesn't fit. Just wanna give you guys a heads up that it's up for grabs on eBay. It's brand new with tags still attached. I wore it once to try it on and that's it.

    In my experience it has been very, very reasonable - 12- 20$. Of course, the only way to know for certain is to ask them!

    It should be a "Large," but I have no idea how that particular jacket fits.

    The jackets run small through the shoulder, I went the 4 (chore coat) and the fit is fine.......Patchwork is a great get hope it works for you.

    Enjoy

    Unlike the sashiko stuff, this is a very light jacket. I really wanted to grab this when I as in japan this summer, but just didn't have the heft I was looking for.

    Thanks for the info Mom Dieu.
