Nice Rural, I'm quite partial to the olive myself. What size did you end up getting? 1 I'm presuming?

I was joking, the material is too floppy to be that. Not sure of it's purpose.

You'd be in real trouble if the majority of Fuk liked it, as you'd have to buy it then.

That blue is nice, is it the lighting or is that the true colour?

re: buttons under the collar…

It may not be the most exciting answer, but apparently they're simply a decorative touch on the Visvim version. According to the FIL staff, they were on the original piece that Nakamura used for inspiration. Apparently the buttons on the original were there for the attachment of a hood. I guess it would be buttoned to the underside of the collar and sort of sandwhiched on with the other flap of fabric.

Mystery solved…maybe?

Makes sense. That was my initial thought. A good would have been a nice optional extra IMO.

Looking at it again though…when the collar is up, the flap opening is on the bottom. Then of course when the collar is down, the flap opening would be on the top. That would make it awkward for a hood attachment if the hood were to be sandwiched between the two pieces of fabric. So with that said, the buttons may be for a hood…but what's the flap?! Unless there was some I'm thinking the case is not closed yet…
