Thanks, Beats.

It's a pretty big day for me getting a plug in a British national newspaper.and one of the respected ones at that.

 

No way! That's brilliant.

 

Picked up some Bybeatle last Saturday, hours before I went on holiday. First thing I did on my return was to give them a soak. They're just drying in my back garden. Pics to follow...

I'm very excited to get my pair, thanks a lot to all involved! (Just hoping I can find the correct size - my thighs don't seem to allow to go for my usual 34  :ph34r:

I can't believe the FH jacquard hoodies didn't sell out immediately.  I have the black one, it's literally the greatest hoodie I have ever experienced, and I will wear it until it explodes.

its the $$$$

 

hoodie looks awesome and i'm sure the quality is amazing also, people just have a hard time justifying that price for a hoodie. Jeans, yeah, people wear them everyday, way easier to justify.

 

hate how Japanese clothing lines are so much more expensive in USA, etc. They seem so much more affordable in Japan. Thus, Rakuten is my friend even though i hate that i can't support Rivet and Hide and Self Edge more.

 

btw beatle, Shirts look real cool! and good price!

I understand your point but I feel I should give a considered response to this comparison.

 

The high inbound shipping costs from Japan to the Uk, the 12% import duty, 20% sales tax, free shipping to the customer, and high London rents will easily explain the mark up from Japanese retail prices. Photography and the rent of this thread are other costs that bring these clothes alive to a wider audience who will never be a customer.

 

Most Japanese stores operating through Rakuten and other Japanese sites do not offer returns and refunds as i do and  can be nearly as expensive as a foreign dealer when you factor in shipping and customs charges into the EU at least.

 

Bringing these brands to the UK is really exciting for me but has not been easy . The easy way would have been to stick to brands closer to home who offer better discounts to retailers than the Japanese by about 20%

But my love is for these really special labels from Japan & US; a passion many share on this forum. It's a slow build but the support so far has been very encouraging and much appreciated.

It works both ways Jcohen.

 

Have you seen the equivalent prices for English or US made goods in Japan? As danny says- once customs, tax, rents, and the pounds of flesh that various bodies take from you are factored in the relative costs has to be much higher.

 

Simple economics im afraid.

^Exactly.

 

Being a whisky fan, I think I'd suffer as much trying to get good malts in Japan for reasonable prices as I do now trying to get japanese denim. (Although I also buy japaense malts for high prices, so I loose in both directions :ph34r:).

I've recently been talking to a Japanese agent about trying to sell some of my bags over in Japan, but once they've added shipping, customs, tax, their own costs and factored in a mark-up, they come out at almost double what I charge for them over here.

 

It's a big shame, but I can see it's just not practical for them. They need to show some real dedication to turn a decent profit, as does Danny. It's not easy money. Certainly not in this economic climate.

I don't want to spoil the surprise. Needless to say the usual insane quality is matched with some great designs including an indigo hounds tooth, native check,  and a blue sawtooth. A few non flannel shirts from TFH too.

Thanks again to all involved! i just got my pair (superfast shipment!) and really love the whole constuction, fabric, smell, patch etc. However, i'm not yet 100% sure about the fit - will take pictures later. For the moment - big thumbs up to beatle and the whole R&H crew!

 I jumped in them from my most comfy and wide pair (Samurai 500XX) and they are unsoaked and stiff as hell. So I feel like I can't bend my legs properly, besides that everything looks fine to me.What do you think?

Fit's well and it's not too tight in the thighs/calves area, which is good.  Looking forward to seeing your evo process.

Thanks y'all! I found new favorite details - the croth reinforcement and the swen in belt loops. Fantastic. And the patch is the best I've seen on jeans yet.Super smooth, thick and the embossed lines are so detailed...great!

Compared to my 710 the measurements are pretty similar, a tad smaller in the thighs, so I'm glad I sized up. This gives me hope I can wear these well postsoak, when the stiffness has gone.

 

I will hold out the soak until the weekend, as I'm super stressed at the moment. See you ;)

      Cleaning out my closet for stuff I don't get to wear as often!  Willing to accept offers.
      1. Himel Bros. Brimaco Raider Cafe Racer - $1750 plus shipping
      This jacket is absolutely insane. Tagged size 36, fits like S. Made with 100% genuine Shinki tea-core horsehide that will gradually fade from deep black to a gorgeous brown as it ages. Weighs in at around 5 pounds and is built to take an absolute beating. Deadstock Lightning zippers, bi-swing back, and of course the absolutely unparalleled quality that David Himel is known for. If you know leather jackets, then you'll know that this is the creme de la creme. Retails for $2450.
      Worn lightly and still has plenty of breaking in left to do. It's a shame that I have to sell this as it's just slightly too small for me. Would totally be interested in trading for another leather jacket of similar quality in a larger size.
      Description from Himel's website: 
      "The Raider jacket is an homage to one of the greatest café racer jackets ever made. Brimaco or British Mfg. Co of Montreal, Canada designed this iconic jacket in the 1950's after attending motorcycle races on the Isle of Man. The jacket has a distinctive British feel with a longer straighter torso and a simple clean back with bi-swing expansion gussets and a long chinstrap. We own so many originals of this great design that it barely required any tweaking, and this model uses our limited supply of original 1950's and 1960's Lightning zippers."
      MEASUREMENTS: 
      P2P: 20" 
      Shoulders: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.5" 
      Back length: 26.5" 
      Front length: 24"

      2. The Real McCoy's M-422A Flight Jacket - $1150 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/mcslLUs7SuOKnR9V2Rdf[/img]
      Absolutely stunning M-422A flight jacket from The Real McCoy's New Zealand. If you know The Real McCoy's, then you'll know that everything they make is of the highest standards, from the material to the construction. This jacket is made with the finest goatskin and mouton fur and is built just impeccably. Faithful to the original details, but superiorly made.
      Measurements: 
      P2P: 21" 
      Shoulder: 17" 
      Sleeve: 24.75" 
      Length: 25.75"
      3. Needles/Nepenthes (Engineered Garments) Horween Shell Engineer Boots, resoled by Brian the Bootmaker - $1500 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:0/resize=width:1100/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/ePB7rWcfRrKeG75LT7SO[/img]
      Needles (Engineered Garments) Engineer Boots made with genuine Color No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan in tag size 9UK. I'd say they fit pretty TTS, although there is plenty of room for one to wear thicker socks.
      These were picked up from the Nepenthes shop located in New York City. Needles is the sister company of Engineered Garments (both owned by Nepenthes). This pair has also been re-soled by Brian the Bootmaker (Role Club) and converted to his signature hand-welt. They're really fresh too - worn under 10 times. Truly an amazing pair of boots. Shell cordovan engineer boots are pretty hard to come by, especially ones made with Horween (most other shell engineer boots are made with Shinki cordovan).
      4. The Flat Head 6002W Type II Jacket - $350 plus shipping
      https://dfqickngpn7t8.cloudfront.net/AJdAgnqCST4iPtnUxiGtTz/cache=expiry:max/rotate=deg:exif/rotate=deg:90/resize=width:1100,fit:crop/output=format:jpg,quality:95/compress/RINrxGgSFazJbCpUp1cI[/img]
      Classic Type II jacket by The Flat Head in their Pioneer denim. Gently worn, practically new. Retails for over $500 at Self Edge.
      Size: 40 (no such thing as S/M/L) 
      Front Length: 24.5 
      Arm Length: 34 
      Shoulder: 18.5 
      Pit to pit: 20.5
      5. Evisu No. 2 Type I Jacket - $130 plus shipping

      Pretty sweet Type I jacket by Evisu. Sick details all over, well worn and faded.

      pit to pit 21.5 inches 
      opening 19 inches 
      sleeve 24.75 inches 
      overall length 23 inches 
      shoulders 18.5 inches
      6. Iron Heart Indigo-dyed Waffle Work Shirt (IHSH-96) - $225 plus shipping

      Worn a handful of times, not really my style. No damage and in excellent condition. Fits excellent as either TTS or slightly tight as it's a slim fit with a hint of stretch due to the waffles knit pattern, though it's 100% cotton. Shirt is sold out in this size last I checked.
      Beautiful indigo dyed waffle fabric that we think will age amazingly 
      Black cat's-eye buttons 
      Chain stitch run-off 
      Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads 
      All felled seam construction 
      Rinsed, so there should be no appreciable shrinkage 
      Model Sam wears a Medium, Giles wears X-Large in this shirt (rather than his normal Large)
      Measurements direct from IH: 
      Shoulders    17.2 
      Length 27.8 
      PtP    21.5

      I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with 3Sixteen. They are based out of NYC and have a decent clothing line that will now add this SL Series denim. Looks like they put together a decent product. The SL-100x (Indigo) and the SL-200x (Black) are constructed of unwashed Japanese selvedge denim with each pair is cut and hand sewn in the USA. Details include custom gunmetal rivets and shanks and aleather patch is handcrafted in Portland by Tanner Goods. Releases later this month. More pics here
