    ts(s)

    ts(s) is a Japanese brand by designed by Takuji Suzuki, the brother of EG's Daiki Suzuki. It's a mix of Italian tailoring, American workwear and Japanese styling. The quality is unbelievable, with interesting and inventive details. The price is rough, but there's lots of opportunities to pick up pieces at a discount at the end of season.

    Sizing

    TS(S) sizing is numerical.

    1 = 36
    2 = 38
    3 = 40
    4 = 42
    5 = 44

    In my experience, shirts fit true to size or slightly small - the fit is boxy and can be slim in the shoulders. Jackets usually fit at least a size small. Pants can fit true to size to a size big, depending on intended fit.

    I recently picked up these pants:

    [​IMG]

    F/W '13 - wool 'sweatpant'.

    100% wool, side welt pockets, no back pockets. Fabric is extremely warm and drapes well, with a bit of stretch. Doublefaced with a black backing and a marled dark grey front. Button-fly with a drawstring waist. Size 3, fits a 40.

    Terrible fit pic:

    I got them on eBay, haven't seen them at any Western stockists so far. Unfortunately most stores don't pick up ts(s) bottoms.

    Nice thread (and long overdue actually)

    Yoox always seems to have one or two random ts(s) jackets at absurdly low prices.

    Reviving this thread but not with anything terribly interesting. Trying to figure out what season these are from but can't find any info online, maybe you guys could shed some light. Linen/cotton blend.

    Seeing that the list of stockists in the first post is out of date - I guess it didn't do too well for a number of stores in the past - I've been trying to compile a new list as I've gotten into the brand in the past few months.

    Here's what I've come up with after a Google search and some luck:

    Antonia
    Digital Mountain
    Green Angle (email orders + PayPal only for international orders)
    Magasin
    Meyvn
    Mindtrive
    No Man Walks Alone
    Norse Store
    Unionmade
    The Bureau Belfast

    Haven doesn't officially carry the brand anymore but some leftover stock from past seasons is in their sale section. I'm not sure if it's the same case for Trunk Clothiers or Jack Straw.

    I'll try and keep the list updated as long as I can. If I'm missing any notable retailers, let me know!

    I also took a look at the upcoming FW16 Season lookbook on ts(s)' website and this is now the one piece I really, really want:

    A reversible shoulder zip-up pullover jacket? Please tell me somebody will be ordering this in!

    I like the brand, but the prices are all over the place. It really is potluck. You can get a handknit sweater for $1200, but at the same time, a scarf for $130, and then a coat for $700. Every time I check a ts(s) price, it is either sticker shock, or a really pleasant surprise. Makes it hard to buy for a retailer, I think. I feel that Robert Geller (a line I personally really like) can be that way as well. The variation in pricing makes the brands hard to place for both retailers and end customers.

    I once had a conversation with a buyer at a ts(s) stockist. He told me that while he loved the brand, it just did not sell until final markdown. His buys were pretty solid as well.

    That's a damn shame. I imagined that that happened with a few other stockists as well.

    It seems as if the brand didn't really catch on in North America. I don't think there's even a stockist for it in Canada anymore.

    I just took another look at the F/W 2016 lookbook and I'm liking it more and more.

    Here are the images from the lookbook, for anybody who's interested. You can cross reference each numbered image to the corresponding number on the list to identify the pieces being worn.

    Here's the list:

    That shoulder zip-up pullover sweater jacket is calling for me. I pray that the potential sticker shock doesn't scare me too much.

    I'm curious as to what No Man Walks Alone (@gdl203 , @conceptual 4est ) and Meyvn will be carrying this season.

    We try not to get too influenced by look books when we make our picks. We pick what we like the most in person. Often, we prefer a different colorway than what the brand is showing on look books. For example we got the coat in look 8 but in the colorway of the jacket in look 1. We got the coverall from look 7 but in the red stripe option.

    The herringbone trousers and green flannel popover are also highlights IMO, but not look-booky, I guess.

    We also worked with Takuji this season to do an exclusive re-edition of the quilted blazer from FW14, in three colors.
