Almost impossible to find outside of Japan, Corona have been producing some great pieces for several seasons now. A relative hidden gem, the brand makes hunting and workwear inspired clothing that definitely deserves more attention this side of the North Pacific. Exceptional fits, and great fabric choices certainly make them worthy of consideration, and Extra in New York has recently received very limited sizes and quantities of the the Game Jacket in Harris Tweed. The price on these is unfortunately high, made in Japan and imported to the US with the current Yen Vs. Dollar exchange rate does not bode too well for those looking for a bargain, but for anyone with some money to burn they certainly come highly recommended.

Although Koji always has a great selection of Post Overalls and EG pieces, one of the best parts about visiting Extra is discovering what new things he has dug out from the depths of his enormous vintage collection, and then hearing him tell you all the stories that surround the discovery of each item. These are a selection of things that may or may not still be around, but rest assured, if they're not, there's bound to be something else that will catch your eye.
