    Hell, I would just buy a first class ticket straight to Tokyo, hire a translator, walk right into Desolation Row and announce "ONE OF EVERYTHING, please."

    No need for a translator to ask for this :D

    Edit: Hell I would be there and help you if needed just to see you place that order!

    Anything I eventually decided was not to my taste would be donated to starving orphans loitering outside the gates of Pitti Uomo

    Would probably stop at Mister Freedom on the way home, after sleeping off the jetlag at Chateau Marmont

    It probably won't work because they are usually low on stock on almost everything. The proper way is ask them to send everything in the next season to you when they are ready.

    Right, not like if I had some money and wanted a new jacket but if I had Bill Gates money. An amount where money becomes a sort of abstract concept.

    Korozen, also known as the 'dye of the sun', was the color for formal royal garments during the Heian period in Japan. It had incredible color-changing characteristics, much like an opal, with a base color of madder red which shifts as light moves over it. The technique was passed down generationally from artisan to artisan, but was eventually lost to time.

    Yusai Okuda was the one to finally unlock this mystery in 1990, at the Yusai Dyeing Laboratory in Kyoto. He founded that laboratory in 1980 after studying painting; engraving; and both Western and Japanese garment design. At this lab, he was able to recreate the Korozen dye in a modern form, calling it Yume Korozen, or "Dream Korozen".

    The Real McCoy's is only the 3rd company allowed to use this dying technique, and they chose to use it on their flagship A-2 flight jacket. The result is the most limited edition of a jacket that is already tough to come by due to the atelier-built nature of the product. The color is hard to pin down, starting as a red and then showing yellow highlights in bright sunlight

    Cool. Now if they could only unlock the mystery of how to make wool coats that don't suck, everyone would be happy.

    This site is deep in $300 pants, $450 truckers, $1,000 boots,and $1500 leather jackets on the regular. We’re swimming in marketing bs.
