    Hi StyleForum users!

    We’re back again with more helpful tools to make your shopping experience more enjoyable. Today, I wanted to put together a list of Japanese Streetwear brands and their associated search terms in Japanese, so you can optimize your search. All of these link to Yahoo Auctions.

    1. KAPITAL
    2. visvim
    3. cav empt
    4. Wacko Maria
    5. UNDERCOVER
    6. NEIGHBORHOOD
    7. Yohji Yamamoto
    8. Engineered Garments
    9. NEEDLES
    10. WTAPS
    11. FACETASM
    12. KURO
    13. A Bathing Ape (BAPE)
    14. Commes des Garcons
    15. mastermind
    16. NUMBER (N)INE
    17. TAKAHIROMIYASHITAThesoloist
    18. Junya Watanabe
    19. White Mountaineering
    20. nanamica (also where you find a lot of TNF Purple Label stuff)
    21. Evisu
    22. Issey Miyake
    Note: You might be wondering why some of these use English search terms -- I used the terms that returned the most relevant search results, and for some of them, it was the English names :)


    If you would like to narrow your shirt, you can tag these on to the brand name in the search bar. So for example, if you’re looking for a KAPITAL shirt, it would look like “キャピタル シャツ”.


    [​IMG]

    1. Shirt シャツ
    2. T-shirt Tシャツ
    3. Coat コート
    4. Jacket ジャケット
    5. Pants ズボン
    6. Jeans ジーンズ
    7. Shorts ショーツ
    8. Shoes 靴

    You can always use Google Translate if you’re looking for something specific and would like to narrow your search down. Also, if you're looking for something and can't find it, you can always reach out and ask us to help you out.


    Please let me know if you find this useful, and what other tutorials or help you would like to see! :)

    Hey guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend. We’re back again with a label that we’d love to introduce called 08sircus. Has anyone heard of this brand? It was founded back in 2009 by designer Kiminori Morishita, with many of its designs taking on a clean, minimalist aesthetic. Think Japanese simplicity and craftsmanship in one.

    If you are a fan of Japanese denim, odds are, you know of Blue Blue Japan. The denim powerhouse has just dropped their lookbook for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2019 season, and we’re excited for it to hit stores!

    Hey, thanks for the question! It's a great one, and we've looked around for you.

    If you're looking for new leather pieces, the below sites stock them. You can order them through us by copying and pasting the item URL here.
    We also found some options on Yahoo Auctions:
    and Yahoo Shopping has a few options for Fine Creek as well as Y2 Leathers.

    If you'd like to do your own searches, here are the brand names in Japanese.

    Fine Creek Leather (ファインクリークレザーズ)
    Y2 Leather (ワイツーレザー)
    Blackmeans (ブラックミーンズ)
    ADDICT Clothes Japan (アディクト クローズ)

    Please let me know if you need more help or if you're looking for a specific item!

    Engineered Garments’ latest collaboration sees them reimagining the classic checkerboard design Vans is popular for! The shoe, produced under the Vault sublabel, is heftier and features a leather embossed checkerboard. It’s available in 4 colors (classic black/white, all black, all white and all red) for JPY 14,000.


    What do you guys think? Something worth picking up?

    visvim has just released a new FBT! Looking almost like a classic FBT moccasin with brown vegetable-tanned cow suede uppers, Vibram soles, and more, the distinguishing factor is the gorgeous decorative footwrap.

    If you’re interested in getting this for yourself, you can pick it up for a sweet JPY84,000 right here.

    Hi folks! I’m back today with an updated (and alphabetized!) list of Japanese brands to shop. I’ve added some lesser-known brands for you to check out! Let me know if you like any of these, and I’d be happy to look for similar stores.


    We’ve also updated our first post with a list of store tutorials, the above list, and blogs! If there’s anything you think would be useful to be included, let us know :)

    Lastly, we’ve shared this before, but we’ll share it again. Here is one of our favorite tutorials -- it’s 5 Handy Tools To Find Japanese Products! It’ll be useful in helping you find some amazing deals on your favorite streetwear.

    It’s almost the weekend! We're back with another Japanese streetwear brand that is a little more obscure but has a devoted fanbase. MUZE debuted in 2013, with head honcho Hiroshi Shibahara and lead designer Masatoshi Ishida.

    Here are some of our favorite pieces currently available on their webshop.
