Atsui Tokyo - Official Affiliate thread  

post #1 of 225
Thread Starter 
I'd like to welcome Atsui Tokyo, a boutique specializing in Japanese streetwear, as a new Styleforum affiliate. Labels difficult to find outside of Japan, like Man of Moods and Mister Olive, among others, are featured. I think that slimmer guys are going to find this store a godsend.

The online store is at www.atsuitokyo.com

Jay is offering a 20% discount on regularly priced goods. Please see the website or PM him (he will be posting shortly as "Atsui") for details.

Cheers,

Fok.

I'd love to hear any experience people have with the brands featured here. Some of the stuff looks pretty cool but it's hard to tell if it lives up to the pricepoint.

I have handled a few pieces from Mr. Olive and Man of Moods. The quality/construction was good, the pieces fit great if you are in favor of a slim silhouette. Overall the labels seem to warrant the price as they use pretty decent materials and the designs are wearable but not pedestrian.

What - exactly - is cutting edge about this website's fashions?

Hello, this is Jay at Atsui. We are excited to be a part of the forum.

We offer 20% discount to all styleforum members on regular priced items. You can get this discount by telephone, e-mail, or on our online shop.

Via our online shop, when filling in your last name, type your last name, followed by a hyphen (-) and the words "Stylef" to get the discount. For example, if your last name is Smith, type "Smith-Stylef." We will go into our system and manually give the discount.

For those visiting our physical location in Seattle, please say you are a styleforum member at the register for the 20% discount (please do so discreetly).

We offer free shipping on domestic orders of over $100 after the discount, otherwise $10 flat fee will apply. For overseas, free shipping on orders over $200 after the discount, otherwise $30 flat fee will apply.

Please PM or e-mail me directly at jay@atsuitokyo.com with any questions.

A lot of what makes the styles carried at Atsui different from things you can find at most American and European stores is in the materials and the details. For example, I tried on a Man of Moods blazer over the weekend that is meant to fit super tight so that a pattern of square and circles stands out when you stretch an arm forward. Or, there were a pair of highly distressed Man of Moods jeans that, when you look at the underside, you see that both the warp and weft are dyed blue, so the wear pattern is actually a 3 dimensional dye job using a caramel ink and then a darker ink. There was also a hoodie made of a very spongey ramie/polyester blend that was very interesting.

The trims and construction of the pieces tends to be top notch as well. For example, the Mr. Olive zippers are all riri.

A lot of these details are much easier to see in person than over the web.

Atsui Tokyo is almost 1 year old and we are beginning to celebrate with our first Anniversary Sale which officially begins on Saturday June 7th. The best discount we have on summer collection items is the standard 20% discount, but there are many previous season items that will be discounted between 20-75% off. We are really busy preparing for the sale and discounted prices will not start to appear on our online shop until after the weekend. I want to give everyone here first shot so if there is anything of interest, PM or e-mail me.

Atsui, regarding Fok's comments below about details and materials easier to see in person, would you be able to post pics of said features on the website? Most of the pics that are up show how the items fit, but the details can't be seen. Closeup shots of what makes each item stand out would be very helpful to those not familiar with the brands.

Much respect Fok; you are one of the smoothest operators on the internets.

And it's probably still not enogh for me to recant my philosophical opposition to pre-distressed jawns, but this sounds goddamned incredible:

Timpoblete - Thank you for the advice.

We unfortunately only have 4 photo spaces available on our online shop, but we do post more close-up detail photos and include further information about the product and designers on our blogsite, www.shopatsui.blogspot.com. We will work on posting more photos of close-ups and details in the future.

If anyone is interested in detail shots of a specific item, please PM me and I can post here on this thread.

I didn't have time take photos, but I want everyone to see this denim Fok is talking about. It is spectacular workmanship. This Japanese site has some good photos. Check the following link, http://www.matou.jp/SHOP/M08SPT12ST.html

Here is the item from our online shop, http://shop.atsuitokyo.com/scripts/p...detail&SKU=601

Our item is #601, Man of Moods "Used" Straight Selvage Denim. This is how the designer explained the process to me. The denim first goes through a blast process with the use of sand particles followed by a Bio wash to eliminate any roughness on the surface. Then it goes through a mulit-dye process where the underside is dyed dark blue and the front surface is then "over dyed" with a beige color to create the vintage look. The denim is then given dimensions by adding the whiskers and wrinkling.

Sorry for the wait. I have taken some pictures of the MofM denim Fok has talked about:

Hey Jay, my stuff just arrived, thanks! Now boys, I ordered a Mr. Olive b/d shirt, the one in the link below in size medium and it fits superb but a bit tight in the arms so please be careful what sizes you order because these things really run extremely small. I might return it for a large but I'm not sure yet since these shirts are suppose to fit tight. http://shop.atsuitokyo.com/scripts/p...detail&SKU=625 I also ordered this Mofm t-shirt in the link below in size 3 and the fit is just right, no complaints..... http://shop.atsuitokyo.com/scripts/p...tail&SKU=330.1 For reference, I'm approx 5'10 150lbs.......

Rocks- What size do you normally wear in tshirts? Does that tshirt you bought still fit drapey like on the model? That's one of the items i was most interested in. Thanks.
