Unfortunately these images aren't the best from Reinforce but we can get an idea of what's coming from the spring season from Junya Wantanbe. I was really a big fan of a number of the fall collection pieces from the tradition trench to the varsity blazer (which fit me perfectly). I honestly hadn't really got into the collection too much, mostly because of price and availability. Now I know a couple stockists that I can locate the line and also how well it fits, so the sad thing left to deal with is the price. I like the navy blazer with the metal buttons shown here for spring. I worn a similar jacket, alhought much worse cut and design, back in high school since we had uniforms. I actualy used to not buy my own and find used ones laying around, and when I could I would wear one that fit far too small in the arms and length. I'm not claiming to be on the Thom Browne steez since high school, but something about the cut of this blazer is reminiscent of those days and something I wouldn't mind playing with again.

I was recently contacted by somebody out in Olso, Norway who said they had an agency. Now it sounded a bit vague at first, no offence, but after a quickly replied email, I found out a bit more. It turns out that that their agency, Blender, distributes some of the best brands to folks in the Scandinavian area. Also they have their own store called Secret Society. I went to the blog for the store and found pretty close to a dream stock list. Visvim, Margiela, Common Projects, Arne and Carlos, N(N)ine, Junya Wantanabe, Comme des Garcons and more. The tiny picture of the store looks nice but it's hard to get a good look. Anyways not that there are hundreds or thousands of readers living in Oslo that don't know about the shop. But for the rest of us, it is definitely another spot worth checking if there is a CDG Man piece or perhaps a pair of Visvim Shaman FBT's I've you've been looking for.
