Gents,

This is my first picture post, so don't be too hateful if my post is in bad form. I've not really learned how to use the "spoiler" function, and I don't really know when it is proper to use that function.

I found these sitting next to a pair of Ballys loafers, and a pair of Florsheim Imperial tassle loafers. I copped the Prada, and the Imperials.

I think they're real. I could be wrong. Comments from sharper eyes than mine would be most welcome.

Pick this up to wear this fall.  

 

Looking some info from the japanese designer/sw peeps about this line.

Google/ebay don't seem very informative, but it seems well made and sort of "fashion-y."

 

Let me know if it's just the stafford of tokyo

OB shorts are a grail find for me; I've been eyeing up a pair for a while now, just haven't sprung for a pair yet...if only those were a 32!

Your Google-fu is weak, grasshopper! (and probably your Japanese too... :) )

 

Junko Koshino is a seriously respected Japanese designer for women and men. That could be a good find for the Japanese designer enthusiast or collector if it's in top condition - although I'm not sure about her different lines and their relative quality. There's a brief recent bio here: http://www.fashionencyclopedia.com/Ki-Le/Koshino-Junko.html

I got about that far, wasn't sure if it was more like LRL or RRL.  I couldn't find any mention of that particular line.  But it does seem to be towards the "uniforms" end of the spectrum

I can search a bit more for you in Japanese later when I get time, if you like.
