@beautiful_FrEaK yes, I meant to mention this after my order. Apologies. I too received an additional invoice for shipping to US. The complimentary shipping is exclusive to Japan.
@bartlebyyphonics unfortunately, it will be a little while longer before I can post pics. The 38 was too big. I have shipped it back for exchange to 36, but this will take a couple weeks in total, I would guess. I can say that the vest is awesome to handle. The fabric has a nice weight, beautiful color and soft hand. The cats on the buttons are also en excellent detail. I don't really understand how the 38 was too big. I followed measurements against existing garments and have never been 36 in any Japanese brands, but not a problem. I'll just be patient for the 36 to arrive.
