    Is one able to place an order for a Rainbow Country jacket through one of the Japanese shops? I seem to recall someone doing this once. Wanting one of their jackets but everyone is always 'sold out' of it in my size

    I think you can ask the shop to email you when they are ready for pre-order for the next season but I don't think you can get the shop to immediately order one jacket from RC. You can try writing to RC to see if they know any shop that have the jacket in your size available.

    Mushman and Mirror Ball are major RC dealers who ship overseas. Americaya also has tons of stock but do not ship overseas so you need a proxy and have to pay the 10% Japanese sales tax.

    Of course, @Blackadder beat me to this and has more comprehensive information than I do. I will say that I am pretty sure you cannot do special orders with them. You would simply have to try to pre-order or check the stock from the stockists.

    Mushmans, Mirror Ball, Avenue, and McFly all ship overseas... I think a lot of the others do as well (not sure though)

    I wonder when they will start making larger sizes, say a 44 long, or a 46.

    As mentioned there is Jelado but also Jelado West (Clutch Cafe) in Osaka also sells Rainbow Country so two stores that can shift stock around. They have checked with RC on a jacket for me before so I am sure they would do it for you. Nice people over there.

    McFly is a pretty small shop and not a whole lot of inventory. It is about the size of a decent sized bedroom by N American standards.

    There is Junk-Vintage in Osaka also but they will have used. I was there and they had a great selection in size 40/42 in RC, Freewheelers, Real McCoy ect. https://www.junk-vintage.com/

    Yahoo auctions Japan/Buyee usually has a decent selection of RC stuff too. Check frequently.

    I ordered mine through Mushmans. At the time I reached out to them, all sizes were sold out. They told me that I can reserve one. I had to pay them in full and they were very clear that there are no refunds. I waited 6 months until I got the jacket.
