Anyone own anything or know much about this brand ? Saw some of their stuff on oipolloi earlier and thought the jackets looked really nice but a bit pricey.

Very good choice for a mid-tier priced traditional workwear brand with top-tier construction. The designer (Daiki Suzuki) and backing (Nepenthes) is Japanese but the company is based in NYC (where they manufacture their goods). I own several garments and the construction is excellent. Fit is somewhat boxy and materials used often intentionally rough; EG is more about wool than silk. I recommend their flannel shirts, belts and outerwear the most.

I know it's stupid, but the models put me off the clothes.

Yep - I'm a fan, quality is superb, fitting is quite boxy on some of the shirts, typical relaxed workwear styling. Spent a small fortune on the S/S09 range, so yes quite pricey. Highly recommend the shorts and the popover shirts, Jackets are spot on too. Work shirts are very roomy across the chest/body, had to tailor mine in and shorten the tail. Sizing is pretty much regular to your normal sizing however each piece can differ slightly.

Not many UK retailers: Online …..Belfast Bureau (highly recommended), Oi polloi, HIP Leeds, Garbstore, Start-London.

also worth checking out their other label Nepenthes as well as Needles & SouthWest8 here:

http://www.nepenthes.co.jp

A good US source is http://www.odinnewyork.com but you will need to use a suitable proxy, *see the definitive list thread.

and there are plenty Japanese etc…….

http://m-a-p-s.jp - have a good range and suitably modeled.

also a good display of their range here:

http://www.northrim.cc/style/index.php

http://www.eggplantjp.com/index.html

and one of my fave's:

http://www.doo-bop.com

You will also find a good deal of info on Styleforum.

Prefer what I've seen from Woolrich to be honest. Jacket's quite similar anyway.

Just email odin, their online shop doesn't handle it, but they ship to the UK, and the staff there are really helpful with extra pictures / measurements.

Must have changed their tune as a couple of months ago they refused to do international ordering over the telephone.

a bit conflicted about this brand, just copped my second andover and love that jacket to death, i've found deconstructed well fitting jackets in this pricerange are extremely difficult to find, most other stuff they do leaves me completely cold, eighter cause of fit or because the details feel to gimmicky
