2nd Snap



—01. Spread from Snap edition; featuring 'Outdoor style'.


While Free & Easy still is probably the most famous of the Japanese fashion magazines in our little world, 2nd has quickly become one of our favorites. The content is often a bit more focused and sometimes a little nicer put together, but it is their special edition books like the Red Wing version and now the 'Snap' edition that I really like. The latest special magazine features street style shots from all over Japan. Showing shop keepers, random people on the street and a couple designers, it definitely is a great way to see some interesting outfits. Whether inspiration for getting dressed or finding a specific garment, its definitely a great issue to have around.

Another fantastic papers that I picked up. Want to know what the shop assistants at key Tokyo shops were wearing? From Beams, Nano Universe, Ships and United Arrows this edition covers them all. Highly Recommended.

Not too sure if Inventory stocks Men's Fudge. That's another good one to keep an eye on.

Does anyone know where I could buy magazines like 2nd, Huge, Honeyee, and Free & Easy in New York?

Is there a Kinokuniya Bookstop in New York? If they don't stock the mags, surely they can order them for you.

There are a bunch of big news stand-style stores in Midtown that get all of them.

Could you be more specific - only going there for a few days, so I don't have time to go around.

"I don't understand this down vest trend."

It's simple, warm, practical, and references the style of classic mountaineering (Japanese like their mountains).

All of the people pictured seem to have the look of a toddler after he's done something clever.
