Who makes good band tees? Looking for stuff with a slimmer cut and at least decent material. I've heard good things about Night Channels, but some of my friends had issues with their orders. 

In terms of bands I'm after stuff like Can, Faust, and The Velvet Underground, 

More esoteric stuff like Sun Ra, John Fahey or Pharoah Sanders t-shirts would be great as well

Do you guys think cuffing your pants and rolling your sleeves up on your shirt is too much "cuffing" on a fit?

 

nah du, not enough. cuff the hem on your shirt too. waistband of your pants too, while your at it

Anybody know what moccasin trainers these are? See them on Beams employees a lot too.

This is from an Inventory editorial, the sneakers are credited as Mizuno, but they're actually the Mizuno x Mountain Research collaboration. They also come in a ring moccasin high and low.

I've never used a proxy before. How would I go about finding a proxy that can ship from the UK to the US? 

There's this jacket I want from Weekday, but unfortunately, they don't ship to the US.

in respect to japanese designers like n(n), undercover, julius etc do they only make up to a size 4? i find as a taller guy a lot of print tees and most jackets will be too tight/not long enough. 

 

basically am i ever going to find size 5 tees / jackets

i can't recall ever seeing a 5, and 4s are uncommon (if the brand even made them). japanese tee sizing in general tends to run short, uc/nn included, so you're limited from the start.

julius has done tons of extra long tops, shouldn't be hard to find ones that work.

^I remember trying on sz 5 UC before but their sizing is super weird? (like 3 is supposedly a"medium?")

not sure, someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

yeah, come to think of it i've seen at least one brand that apparently uses 3-4-5 notations instead of the usual 1-2-3, but they still fit like small-medium-large regardless. perhaps uc has done that? (how needlessly confusing.)

if i understood him correctly, he's looking for tops that have a range of 5 total sizes

Size 5 definately exists for UC but it depends on demand from O/S buyers. I work for a store in Sydney/Melbourne that stocks UC and we always order size 5 but very rarely does it go to production so we get very few styles in size 5 per season.

Does anyone know of any longer black denim jackets? More like a thick black denim shirt. Looking for something that hits just about wrist height or higher?

UC's size 3 is a super tight fit s-medium. I wear sz. 2 thom browne and boo, 48 in balenciaga and margiela. UC's sz 3, especially the more tailored pieces, are usually pretty tight. The UC cropped pants i sold to mrip had a pretty generous waist size. 

 

stephan schneider is one of the few brands that does the weird 3,4,5 system.

I got a tee from Nightchannels recently, it's printed on Gildan Ultra Cotton and fits slightly big. The colors on the print came out slightly different than on the site but I dont really mind in this case. Alright for the price I guess, their selection of prints is stellar though, can't find a lot of the stuff elsewhere. Please let me know if you do find some good Can tees, been wanting one for ages.

I was wondering whether most brands distribute their clothes on their own or use wholesale agencies. For example Common Projects uses the 30:70 agency located in Paris for their distribution in Europe. Anyone knows who the biggest wholesale agencies are?
