    Do this. I like Jun Hashimoto but I'm not sure if BB1 will approve.

    I wouldn't complain as he's currently one of my favorites. Although I really like the idea of seeing the banner change every month such that over time a wide array of SW&D styles are represented.

    Hah, hadn't looked at anything else on that guy's blog. Only saw that page. The point is that it reads as street wear/designer without being overtly anything. The stuff in that pic is black, but if you disregard the shoes (which I personally think are hideous) it doesn't necessarily read as goth ninja. That pic is admittedly less than ideal, but it reads more as sw&d than the current cover. So does SVB's pick. If you guys want to take pics at jh's booth that would be great too. You know what goes on in here. The point is just reflect that.

    For the record though, I think the new design looks great overall.

    OK, you have to explain this – I'm really curious now.

    im thinking because while jh uses a lot of similar textures and treatments dude isnt afraid of color or experimenting with different styles

    Dude can do this (i'd be very content to own that jacket if it fit me like it fits that model)

    and still make something like this, that could be in any goth ninja's wardrobe

    er... nice analysis, but probably completely offbase. Here is what happened. It's actually pretty prosaic, and honestly, in all the projects I've worked on, stuff usually works this way for the last minute details.

    The Huddler sent us some douchey Diesel like images. I was like "Not on my watch, dudes. So I decided that we should do a collage, like we did for SF10. I asked Parker to mock something up. Parker was like "Um, bad idea. That would be too busy." Good point. Then he sent me a bunch of images. Some (2?) were vaguely goth ninja. I actually liked one of them. One of them was of a RRL Gambler jacket. There was a picture of a dude with jeans and boots, waist down. Then there was this.

    I dismissed the RRL jacket and the jeans picture right away, since Denim is already in the subforum name, and I didn't want it to seem to denimcentric. One of the "darker" pictures was cool. I thought that this was cool too (In the original mockup, with had fewer stickies, you couldn't even see the tie, just the sleeve and the hat. I decided on this one because there was some color, and I didn't want the page to look too drab. Plus, I really like how saturated was the blue in the picture, and I thought that it complemented the colors of the page best.


    Actually, a lot of Brits do a chisel toe - pretty classic, really. For example, the iconic Edward Green 888 last is a chisel toe. The Tricker's Ghillie boot for women (my wife has a pair) has a chisel toe. Those are the two that come immediately to mind. Girling&Gaziano does one as well.


    Well, at the last FW Pitti, he told me he stopped doing WJK because he wanted to do something more casual and wearable and not "so ponderous". And when I pointed out some boots and mentioned that they really resembled the classic C.Diem shape, he laughed and told me that he actually had copied the old style completely, just ripped off his own shit, because he wanted to wear them. Then he added that the only difference was that these were made in Japan rather than Italy. And after a pause... "and they are yellow." He is a serious designer, no doubt. And he knows all about the difference concepts, etc... but at the end of the day, he realizes that clothes are for wearing, and really, for fun. And sometimes, you want to express yourself through clothes. And sometimes, that expressions is just plain "I'm having a good time here." Also, we both joked that I was probably a size 4, or even a 5, for most of his designs, and that he was decidedly a 5 "when they even fit me". Maybe when he was 16, he was moping around being all gothy. But it doesn''t seem the case now, either in his clothes (which have terrific treatments and are very well thought out, especially the outerwear), or his manner.

    Thanks for the honest explanation, although it sounds like I was not completely off base in suggesting that Huddler might want to suggest imagery. Can you share with us these Diesel-like images? I'd be curious to see them.



    In my opinion this nicely sums up the difference between junhashimoto and wjk. Jun is like wjk, but with the serious/dark elements mostly removed and replaced with a more sporty aesthetic. In this sense it directionally represents the antithesis of SZ: less serious, less heavy, less dark, and less full of self importance.

    Brad has expressed disapproval of the sportiness that continues to creep into Jun's collections, but I actually like it. While you can still construct a "goth ninja lite" style outfit using some of the pieces in his collections, the majority of his pieces are no longer like this. I can honestly see someone who wears stuff like Stephan Schneider or forum members such as Hendrix wearing his stuff.

    Perhaps you could do a styleforum exclusive interview with him and post it to the forum?

    Ugh. MofM goose down shorts. I'm guessing they're intended to be worn with leggings.
