Kamakura Opens Its Online Shop
Kamakura just opened their online shop. Of the slim-fitting oxford cloth button down shirts I reviewed in our series, I thought Kamakura’s was the best one. Timothy Kojima – a sales associate at the company’s store in NYC (currently their only location in the US) – tells me that the shirt they sent me was one of their New York Slim Fits. You can get a sense of the cut by checking out the measurements in my reviews.
Kamakura seems to have two general models: a Tokyo model and a New York model, both of which come in a classic and slim fit. The Tokyo model, as I understand it, fits slimmer in the torso and shorter in the arms. That means a Tokyo Classic Fit will be slimmer in the body than a New York Classic Fit. However, Timothy tells me that the Tokyo Classic Fit will still be fuller than a New York Slim Fit.

Absolutely lovely time at the @clubmonaco beach shop tonight.
Another new pocket square in the Put This On shop. This one from vintage Indian silk, in vivid spring colors.

Now in Shop: Acquired Taste Magazine Volume III
Just added five beautiful new squares to the Put This On shop. I’ve found that listing short-run pocket squares is a wonderful stress reliever in the middle of my “real” work day. All of these are vintage fabrics, and all in relatively small quantities. One of these, we’ve got two of. So, as they say, get ‘em before they’re gone.
Thanks, by the way, to folks who’ve been tweeting @PutThisOn about their favorite and most coveted designs. That’s what passes for consumer research, around here.
