I for one believe Japanese style is under represented in North America. That is one of the many reasons for opening Atsui. When creating Atsui, I wanted to facilitate an outlet in the US for young up-and-coming Japanese designers and carry labels that are at a price range that most people can afford. That is why I have chosen designers like Man of Moods, Mr. Olive, and Stodja. These labels are luxury price points as they are made in Japan, use quality fabrics, and have intricate designs, but still within reach of most people's budgets.
Now, as for sizing, that is always a challenge when shopping in Japan, but most designers will make larger sizing. For instance, Mr. Olive is making XL exclusively for us.
So, give me imput.

I think these would be popular for slimmer individuals. The arms on the jackets aren't the typical large arm holes either, for guys with under 16 inch arms.
Would possibly become popular in Seattle (the rain jackets).
