Image

01. 60% cotton, 40% nylon.

Words

Produced using premium materials and almost always free of embellishment or graphic treatments, Yaeca’s refined, casual apparel feels effortless season after season. This simple, zip-up shirt, made from 60/40 cloth, is no different. A great option for wearing in unpredictable summer weather or on cooler evenings, the functional fabric will add the reassurance one desires, while providing an air of classic, unadorned sophistication.

Sunsea Layered Tank Top

01. Made in Japan.
02. Available in three combinations.

Words

Last summer I got in the habit of regularly wearing tank tops over long-sleeve shirts, I guess as a way to keep the layering alive through the warmer months. Since most of them didn't survive their first tour of duty, the hunt has began again and seemingly ended with this beautiful layered tank from Japanese brand Sunsea.

Digawel Stripe BL Shirt

01

01. Made in Japan.
02. 100% Cotton.

Words

I don't normally give a simple striped shirt a second glance, but Digawel seem to produce one I want almost every spring. They always manage to make a classic item look less like something a businessman would wear and more like something Tracey Emin might paint in if she couldn't find her pants. She'd call them trousers though.

Junya Watanabe Man Panel Trousers

01

—01. Made in Japan.
—02. 100% Wool.

Words

Junya Watanabe has a way of making everything else I'm looking at just that little bit less appealing. I thought I needed a pair of navy trousers for winter, but all the others I've seen pale in comparison to this option, made up of three pairs. Whereas most designers would have struggled to avoid making this treatment look tacky, as usual Junya hits the nail right on the head.

Markaware Inner Down Cardigan

01

01. Made in Japan.
02. Packable.

Words

There's been plenty of globe-trotting ski enthusiasts that have attempted to ruin shiny down clothing for the rest of us, but in similar fashion to when they try to look genuinely interested in art, they have failed. That means we're safe to pick up this beautiful, contemporary interpretation of down clothing, taking up the baton from The North Face Purple Label, who made a similar cardigan last fall.

—01. 100% Cotton.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

This incredible piece by Digawel is one of those miracle jackets that can work with almost anyone's style in one way or another. It's a beautiful mix of modernist and classical elements with just enough singular detail to set it apart from the pack.

Nonnative Doctor Long Shirt

01

Images

—01. Band collar.
—02. 100% Cotton.

Words

This shirt is essentially a puzzle piece for your wardrobe. It can be worn alone, but is also perfect to layer with, revealing itself in smaller, less noticeable ways. The banded top will look great piled under a few of those archaic collars some people still cling on to, while the cotton satin elongated torso will be an interesting addition to the waves of heavier fabric falling over the lower half of a winter look.

Digawel Indigo Dye Asymmetry Shirt

01

—01. Dip-dyed paneling.
—02. 100% cotton.

Words

Mixing panels of fabric and colour is a huge trend in Japanese fashion this season. It makes sense, as the menswear market continues to grow at an accelerated rate, more and more people are looking for a way to distinguish themselves from the pack. As opposed to the heavy-handed application of this technique by quite a few brands, Digawel chose to do a subtle indigo dip-dye, striking a nice balance between new and old.
