    Favorite Japanese retailer to ship Warehouse to the US? Is the Warehouse website shipping direct to US now?

    Ooe-Yofukuten & Co.

    Measurements look small. Is it typical to go 1 size up? Never owned Ooe's.

    I've been enjoying my RMC 002 Lee's and my 1011 jacket a lot lately, been making me want to pick up more Lee stuff. Would love to get my hands on a 1012 jacket, either from the old Lee Japan run, or this newest WH release. But WH always sells so fast!

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    @Maynard Friedman ! That's the other thing! I fully expect modern s*** to gain some value, but part of me feels that there will never be another 'return on investment' like we've seen with vintage 501s, for example. But who knows, we're only ever the children of our time.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    @peter1 Great story. Likewise, if I were any older, had lived through the 70s 80s, etc. I would've been buying up vintage Levis left and right... The sad part (for me) about vintage clothing is, one wonders if the majority of the 'run-up' in the price has already occurred. Meaning, for younger guys like me, becoming a part of the vintage scene means big $$$, when 20 years ago vintage sweats were 1/10th the cost, for example. On the other hand, if vintage prices continue to rise due to basic economic principles, supply and demand, then the vintage world will become only ever more exorbitant. Is there a point where it becomes so costly, that it morphs into something far unlike what it is today? I do wonder what the future of vintage clothing looks like, insofar as it represents nicely the growing inequality to accessing certain 'paradigms of culture'; furthermore how these paradigms are becoming new forms of social capital, and the clothes not just 'plain old clothing'. What was once an endeavor tied more so to culture/community and less so to capital is now all but perfectly commodified, swirling around in a sea of identity curation for the wealthy. All that said, I still do find 'value' in vintage pieces even at these prices, even though I wish that type of thinking were removed from the equation altogether. It should be noted I write this as someone living on the coasts of the US, though it does seem that in our global economy these prices are a global phenomenon.

    Vintage Sweatshirts

    Russell Athletics 50s-60s single V sweatshirt. Needs a little love around the cuffs, otherwise I appreciate the wabi-sabi.

    Conners Sewing Factory

    Found this CSF chore coat at my local vintage shop. It is unworn, roughly a size 42. Thought I would post here if anyone was interested so I could snag it for them! They are asking $750 USD, though I would assume the price is very negotiable. I have no idea what CSF is/was selling these for. Lovely buttons...

    I am absolutely buying what I assume to be 201 repros. Thanks for the update @Broark
