Lawford with a simple white t-shirt.  Notice the stitching around the neck.

I reached out to BoT overnight and got the same response, no international shipping yet be he'd like to one day.
I'm hoping if he hears it from enough different people he'll make it happen one day. ^_^

The Okayama Denim sale got me to finally grab a couple of Loop and Weft shirts. I remember being impressed by them at Blue in Green a number of years ago. 
I picked up the Tompkins knit crew neck sweat in mustard and the twill face crew neck tee in dark cherry. 
For a company so meticulous in their craft, I’m surprised not to see much about them on sufu.

There was a nice pair of Red Selvage there too the other day for just under ¥29k in size 32.

EDIT - and a Type 1 jacket in size 38 for just under ¥40k.

Releasing this time next week. Not cheap and fit a bit too full for my usual taste, but would certainly work for the full ‘n‘ high contingent:

Store photos don’t do these justice. His blog is where the money is:

Judging by the strain at the cinch it looks he’s upsized for max clown fit!

I've been liking the look of these on their IG. As you say Unders, not so much the oversized fit in that pic^^^.

These OG Bros OG-10 jeans would be pretty cool if they didn't have a zip fly. :dry:

Sure, I just don't like zip flies personally.

Pretty. Requires selling an organ, but pretty. 
 

edit- I guess that this is the significantly less expensive pair that they sell.

@lefty Those are nice, but yes would definitely need to sell an organ for them! Tempo brings a nice variety of brands that you usually don't see much of in the States. There's a brand that they carry called Three Kingdom Overalls that have some interesting details. Haven't seen much about them anywhere else though.

Loooove BUAISOU...They have one of my favorite instagrams and frequently show how they grow the indigo, the dyeing process, etc. Also you can get a peak of how their denim will fade as the workers typically wear their clothing while doing all that labor. Follow their IG stories for more!

^Very cool shop - haven't seen that before. Very much in line with their approach.

I do love me some Sassafras - I've got three shirts that I absolutely love to bits. If anyone have a line to getting it from Japan I would be very interested. Kafka carries a decent amount of their stuff but it's limited to certain styles.

Quick update on the Sassafras SF-10484 after a few months' walks and

hikes, as I've just noticed for the first time how much the color of the main fabric has faded over time with sun, sweat, & washes

The last photo shows the hem flipped up, for reference—I think the inside of the fabric is much closer to the original color, and the seat patch and main fabric started off very similar shades

Been on the hunt for a second pair of hiking shorts, recently, and I can say confidently that if I had the opportunity to buy another pair of these (either in the same fabric or different) I would in a heartbeat

Anyone have experience with Belafonte shirts? Interested in general impressions, but would appreciate in particular an insight as to how the neck openings are sized…
