The finnish guys that run Lean Garments are closing shop and the last batch of BD shirts are reduced to 50 (plus shipping). I own some of their numbers from past seasons and the quality is top notch. These last ones are apparently made in Portugal, with the usual Ivy details (locker loop, back collar button, box pleat), mother of pearl buttons and a thick oxford cotton (linen in some cases) and come in white, blue, grey and red/pink. The main drawback for me is the collars, that look smaller than the previous ones. Anyway, a quality shirt for 50 is a good deal, IMO.

On the Supreme cardies, it looks like it's part of their spring/summer 2017 collection (the current one is full of abominations).

Among a lot of crap-looking clobber, there's a nice 60s-70s retro undercurrent through the whole collection, with the cardies the outstanding examples. A pity some of the clothes are ruined by ubiquitous logos/branding and/or garish colourways, but hey, it's a skaters' brand after all.

I concur the green cardie is a thing of beauty, but I like the rest too, especially the white/grey one:



Some other nice bits and pieces:







On a quick research it seems that Supreme brand is a global "fashion" phenomenon nowadays, the streetwear brand that every upmarket designer wants to be associated with; the hype would explain the high prices, even second hand.

When are you in NY Syd?
Are you solo or with family?
Doing sights or shopping (or both)?

Cheers, Rod. I'll be there from 15th to 20th december, with my younger brother. I hope I'll have the time for basic sightseeing and some shopping.

That'a a lot of jumper.  I'm not sure that it is overpriced, not saying it's cheap, but manufacturing great quality knitwear in Europe is a costly business, I know.  ;)

That's why I've used the term "expensive" instead of "overpriced", Adam. I think it's a fair enough price tag, knowing Saint James' quality is top notch. But with the impending NY trip I need to save money!  ;D

Famed breton tops' maker Saint James introduces a mod-friendly twist in their last collection: 100 % wool & made in Brittany, of course (another for the "sales' wants" list, as at 135 it's still a bit expensive):



This "rugby" version of their iconic pull ain't bad either:
