Picked up some bits from the Hip Archive/Sample sale over the weekend.
Stepney Workers Club at £10 a pair, and the Filson bag at £10 were the biggest bargains.

Bought a load of shirts that had to go back as the sizing was weird, Mediums were huge, Smalls fit tiny, all had the Japanese store tags on which roughly translated to 50% off. Clearly made for Japan as the styles were unique

Can you easily tell which bits are Japanese? The fit on their sizing is loads better for me, so would be interested in finding some pieces.

Bit late but lots of Japanese RL in Reading Maxxes. Quite obvious as the RL labels are in Japanese (plus inside labels). Nothing amazing but all quite nice, had a camo mac with a removable orange lining for £100 that I would have gone for in my size, was big though tried on an M and could probably get away with that over a tee with the lining removed.

Like those kicks, they were 50 on another site I was looking at, but that price is a definite go, what is the puffer, beams or nanamica?

I wear JMM Yves optical every day. They're pretty much the only piece of clothing that I've ever got any comments from strangers on Smiling
