  1. What about Jeans Jackets ....

    I wash and hang dry, so I suspect there might be some final bit of shrinkage that I haven't managed to squeeze out of them yet. It's hard to say for sure without me actually putting them in the dryer, but I'm already happy with the way they fit, and I don't mind waiting for them to dry. I like the sleeves to just hit the wrist and the body to end around the bottom of my belt; the size 40 would have been better for layering but I prefer not to cuff my sleeves. Fullcounts are nice as well but you can't really go wrong with either of these brands. However, the reason I've bought so many Warehouse jackets is because I was blown away by the accuracy of the details when comparing one of their repro jackets to the original article in their store. They had a vintage 213 jacket hanging there for reference and they kindly allowed me to compare it to the repro piece they made. Needless to say, aside from the banner denim, all the details were virtually identical, stitch count and color, even the asymmetric and slighty skewed pocket shape. It might be silly but I was so impressed that it convinced me to buy the 213 jacket rather than the WWII jacket I originally had my eye on.
  2. What about Jeans Jackets ....

    The Warehouse jackets do shrink quite a bit. I have three of their jackets, all in their banner denim, and they shrink about one full size. I tried on a one-wash size 40 in their Tokyo store and found it to be bigger than what I liked, so I went with a size 38 and it fit perfectly. I'm also a size 40 in Fullcount's non-slim cut denim jackets; I don't own any but I did try some on in the Harajuku store. I think the shrink estimates Warehouse gives on their website are pretty accurate, though they probably will shrink more with frequent drying.

    It looks like Warehouse is going to use DuckDigger denim in their standard cuts for Spring '17. https://www.instagram.com/p/BOXLyQjlU3_/?tagged=warehousecompany
  4. That's a real shame. I find that I size down for most of Warehouse's jackets and shirts, including their Duckdigger and Heller's Cafe items. I have three of their denim jackets in a size 38, while I'm usually a 40 or even 42 for other brands. Have you checked the measurements yet?
  5. Warehouse released some new denim coveralls recently, and some are blanket-lined. They're not exactly chore coats but maybe it's worth a look. http://www.ware-house.co.jp/?mode=cate&cbid=1641906&csid=2
  6. The Flat Head

    W just means it's been washed by The Flat Head, and the R means it's a regular fit. The WR shirts will fit slightly larger in the chest and shoulders.

    Hey SLAB, I just checked the Warehouse webstore again and it looks like they did a small restock on the 1105s. Now's your chance to order them.

    It's also the 13.5oz banner denim, so there will be shrinkage.
  9. Warehouse

    These are 1105s from a few years ago, but they're available in your size. Non-wash: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/frisbee/item/10004696/ One-wash: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/frisbee/item/10004694/ The details aren't exactly the same, and I'm not sure what kind of denim is used either, but if you can't find a pair from this recent release, then I suppose this older pair might be worth a look.
  10. Warehouse

    I'm pretty sure they're all sold out at this point, I don't think they were available anywhere but the Osaka store and the online shop. I'm suprised they went so quickly, but luckily I had them pre-ordered over a month ago. As soon as I saw them hit the online shop I sent an email reminding them I hadn't paid the invoice yet, twice. I'm pretty glad I bugged them about it because I just received them yesterday, and I now see that most of the sizes are already gone. Try emailing the webstore anyway, maybe they have some left in the physical store.
  11. Shoes that look better with age...

    I'm so sorry for the negative rep, the trackpad on my Macbook's been acting funny and it clicked on it by accident.
  12. Pure Blue Japan

    My memory's kind of hazy so forgive me if I'm wrong, but I remember it being a looser fit with little taper, so it probably is the 005 cut. And I'm pretty sure the denim is PBJ's standard denim as well. I haven't been in Taiwan for a while, but that pair of jeans has been on their shelves for at least two years now.
  13. RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    710s are unsanforized so they will shrink more than just 1.5 inches in the inseam. If you want a 28.5 inch inseam I'd suggest you go with the 31 raw.

  15. You always get the best exchange rate when you use a debit card to withdraw money from an ATM in the country you are visiting. Obviously you also have to take into account your own bank's related transaction fees, but it's still generally cheaper than buying currency from an airport or bank. Most bank ATMs in Tokyo don't charge their own transaction fees, and 7/11 definitely doesn't, so I think using your debit card is the best way to get cash, since the exchange rate you're going to get is more-or-less the inter-bank rate. Of course, if the yen continues to rally like it has been doing these past few weeks, you might want to exchange for some now, just in case.
