Easily one of the most gangster suits I've ever seen. Could've worn a better pair of shoes though.

Hi World – people have been asking me about the status of this blog, so a quick explanation:

There is no longer a need for a person like me to hunt images and make an archive of Japanese labels. The impact of these labels is established – many have broken well into the mainstream.

High-craft Japanese labels are comfortable in US accounts. The outdoorsman, railroad, tech sherpa, workwear, punk etc etc etc influences are well represented globally by the Japanese labels that pioneered them.

Mass media (Hypebeast et. al.) and mainstream retail all provide enough of a window – they won’t offer the newest or most obscure, but blogging about this microniche is now less about discovery and anthropology, and more of a trend-hunting activity. It’s better suited to retail buyers and designers. Which are both fine professions, but not my job.

There will always be further to dig though, and without digging, you will not find the #veryrare.

I was sad reading that because it reminded me of this thread and how I wanted to use it to showcase new or obscure designers, not just Japanese labels.  people that don't get a lot of talk on the internet, you know?  I wanted to follow up this post with something interesting and new but I'm just out of it, really.  haven't really been spending much time on the computer crawling around looking for something new.

MS007's young and hungry thread is kinda exactly what you just described.

This could've been a temple to the esoteric and the oddball, soaring to dizzying heights. But instead it's just a ruin crumbling under the weight of its own ambition. Crushed hopes are bitter on the tongue.

You failed yourself. You failed us.

the focus on japanese blah blah blah was just a stab at the forum description for SW&D. but it's not bad that it was taken literally I don't think
