Me too, Virgils are quality but the 73 is numero uno - makes it even better that it gets less attention.

I am not talking about the SS13 linen version but the SS13 cotton damaged one (which uses the same fabric as the Chino noragi)

I just purchased a brand new with tags and packaging etc. olive FW12-13 Kilgore in a size 1 for retail (40,900 yen). Measurements are as follows: length 66.5cm, width 49.5cm, shoulder to cuff 61cm. As mentioned previously in this thread a few months back, I tried on a size 1 and 2 in F.I.L. Singapore, the shoulders were a little tight on the 1, but in retrospect probably more down to the stiff canvas cotton material; size 2 on the other hand was too big, especially on the arm length.

For reference I'm a size 1 in everything bar the first version of the Deckhand where I'm a size M and the Record jacket from 2006, which I purchased in a size M (before they started rolling out "small" men's sizes).

I found the shoe profile of the 73's a little bulky for my taste and couldn't decide what trousers/denim to wear them with so bought and then subsequently moved on 2 pairs in the end. Lovely boot just was not convinced, slimmer Virgil profile I liked much more when worn.

Anyone ever bought direct from http://www.conceptshop.com.hk/? Will they ship internationally or do I need to use a proxy?

does anyone know how much stock varies depending on locations?

for example, the amdo tee is supposedly releasing on the 22nd, but Sendai store won't have a 4/5 so Tokyo is going to be checked. Does Tokyo have more inventory or does it just random what stores have certain sizes, because usually 4s have been secured without a problem.
