Yes. It's cool but that figure seems high for an unlined canvas jacket.

I pegged it for a $250-300 jacket at best, but what do I know? Probably cost that much to make

No, it most certainly didn’t

Interesting. The Samurai website has it for $552 or something. I’ll look around at other Japanese retailers

Samurai website is very expensive. Try to look elsewhere.

It’s just that percentage game we suffer - a $500 jacket like that probably cost about (broadly) $100 … the majority is mark up and obviously because it’s done by percentage the cost is grossly exaggerated

I suppose, to be fair to the US seller, they have shipping & import duties to factor in. I'm surprised Samurai is also selling it for $500+.

Maybe they don’t want to undercut their international retailers?

There's still plenty of old stock available on 2ND, Denimio, and other Japanese retailers, but a couple years ago they rebranded and substantially toned down their classic details. I recently picked up pairs of S0510xx and S3000vx in protest.

Thanks, so far from what i have found, these are some of the websites that ship to the states without proxy. are there any others that im missing? they don't neccessarily have to stock samurai or ship to the states.

Samurai S3000vx for Indigo Invitational, one month of wear. These are coming along nicely, the Zero denim fades quickly. Should look great in a few months.
