I'm not sure about LA, but I think the best in person selection of Real McCoy/Joe McCoy gear is at Blue in Green in NYC.

work took over my life in LA so got no shopping done at all :(

i hear you on blue green it looks an amazing store.

how gorgeous are the horse hide flight jackets lined in red silk?

still they seem to come up very small with the 44" jacket only having a 16" collar

for nearly $2500 price tag that's a long distance high cost fit gamble.

so i'm trying to make an order from vintage paradise in japan through rakuten.

does anyone have any experience of this?

prices are MUCH better than through UK outlets but i'm guessing import duty and shipping will soon rack up.

all information gratefully received - i live in london by the way.

I ordered my Buco J-100 repro through Vintage Paradise.  They were generally very helpful and usually responded to my emails within 24-48 hours.  I'm not sure if it helps you make a decision, but I wouldn't hesitate in using them again.
Wanted to Buy:
IHSH-20 Red (Small).
IHSH-11 Blue (Small).

i ordered the 906 jeans from them and they have indeed been really helpful.

also ordered the buzz rickson navy hook jacket from take off.

will report back when i get them as it will be interesting what tax and import duty add to the cost.

mccoy and rickson are so expensive in the UK.

McCoy and Rickson are expensive everywhere.  Still, you get the quality you pay for.

Looks good.  How does the feel of the material compare to the IH hoodies?

Honestly its like comparing apples to oranges
The IH loopwheel fabric has a realy smooth and uniform feel and its pretty thick . My favourite thing about the IH hoody is the brushed back , realy makes it super warm
The McCoy's loopwheel fabric is soo soft but has this slightly rough texture that i love , the McCoys sizing works better for me  and i love the front pockets , the talon zipper is a nice toutch too

i have this in the red medium and its a lovely piece but i wonder if i just prefer a rommier fit?

meanwhile my first order from japan isn't going well.

i have had some 906 real mccoy jeans on order but they've emailed me today to say they've sent the wrong ones.

annoying as i'm wondering how i sidestep import duty and VAT on something i didn't order?

it was from vintage paradise who have been very courteous through the whole process.

still it maybe makes it clearer why its easier to order from the UK and pay a premium.

thinking of using the money i'd earmarked for the jeans as a down payment on a - ahem - joe mccoy down vest.

i really like the brown deerskin model has anyone tried these before?

I should add that the Real McCoys release both spring/summer weight and fall/winter weight hoodies, that grey is a spring weight from the looks of it, I have the green one myself ...

Hassinator, that deerskin vest has become an obsession to me (I have a preference for the black though), but I cannot find any reliable info on sizing ...

its also beautiful in the black but i'm feeling the winter warmth vibes of that deep chocolate brown.

it reminds me of a timberland jacket (colour) my friend bought back in 1991.

it was the then ridiculous price of £400 but was so luxe it was unbelievable.

i'm a true 38" chest and i'm going to go for the 40" as i will want to wear it over a buzz rickson sweat or cpo shirt.

the red is a winter weight and really well built piece - its clearly going to be around for years.

i got the frogspawn US marine shorts in the summer and they are also ace.

i'd like to get a navy and a grey sweat from mccoy as i like the collar on the diagonal.

is the fade as good as i would imagine when time goes by?
