The last stretch before we get into Japan's infamous summer heat, we welcome the arrival of a slew of late-Spring items. Included in this week's drops are shirts from Japan Blue and Momotaro, as well as two new shorts being added to the mix.
In a market that is saturated with a plethora of generic check patterns we see, JB has managed to up the levels with their blue and yellow check work shirts. While unique in their color scheme, the pieces remain super versatile as daily wear garments through the seasons.
And as that heat approaches, JB's new Aloha Shirts will ensure you've got that well needed room to breathe.
Not only do we love the classic pineapple print motif, it's upon closer inspection of the fabric that we can truly appreciate the textured subtlety of the fabric that this garment is cut from.
The intricately woven dobby cloth is a real standout fabric for this season, adding that well deserved layer of texture to an already stellar shirt.
Cut in the same Aloha shirt silhouette, JB's Indigo dyed Paisley Jacquard fabric features a mesmerizing combination of texture and indigo hue.
As if we don’t already obsess over the fade results from conventional Indigo fabrics, Japan Blue's latest indigo dyed jacquard weave will without a doubt prove to fade into something special over time.
Summon your inner Joe Exotic this Summer. Momotaro have conjured up a beautiful Indigo Leopard Print Jacquard fabric harnessing full on Tiger KIng vibes. While not only a clean aesthetic, the fabric is wonderfully airy thanks to the unique jacquard weave.
Brown tagua nut buttons help highlight this unique fabric impeccably.
The Peach Boys also get into the shorts game this season, with two fire fabrics landing coming through the doors.
Starting with another indigo-dyed banger, these lightweight shorts feature two combinations of dobby sashiko fabric, completed to perfection with the eponymous GTB (Going to Battle) painted lines.
Another welcomed addition to this year's selection is Momotaro's 10oz. Selvedge fabric, featuring their GTB lines and peach rayon tag.
Cut in a roomy mid-length silhouette, let those legs breathe this Summer while sticking to the Selvedge style.
Finally, from the sword-wielding Osaka brand comes their latest denim work hat featuring their slubby 16oz. Geisha fabric.
Taking cues from the jeans featuring this fabric, Samurai have added the traditional "Plum" branded buttons to the adjustable headband...
...as well as the yellow chainstitching construction featured on the brim.
The new items go live on 5/14 @ Midnight (JST)
