Scandanavian breakfast at Broder

Now I'm hungry.

Wait! What is Scandinavian about that breakfast? As far as I can tell there is no fish, no coarse wheat bread with goat cheese. That is 100% American and, though it looks divine, looks nothing like any Scandinavian breakfast I've ever had...

So that Filson jacket actually fits true-to-size, or does he normally wear a medium in other brands? I was considering getting it, but figured I would be swimming in a size small. (Great blog, btw. I've been reading it for a while but have never commented.)

No, I'm 6'2" and 175 pounds with long arms. The Filson small shouldn't fit me as well as it does!

Ha, I should have known. Hoping that a size small Filson would fit my frame was wishful thinking on my part. What I don't understand is, how do they sell this stuff to people in Japan? Surely they must size smaller for that market?!
