The latest arrivals from Master-piece

Trailblazing toward that ethos of producing some of the finest luggage goods and functional garments in Japan, Master-piece lives up to the reputation with the most recent additions to their F/W 2022 lineup. Kicking it off with a banger - leave it to Master-piece to conjure up a leather backpack that will stand the test of time. Crafted from high quality Japanese cowhide, the surface of the leather is dyed and pigmented to give a natural color and sheen prior to the waterproofing process. 3M's SCOTCHGARD® waterproofing agent is considered one of the best on the market, with the brand confident enough to put their product's reputation on the line. As such, 3M have conducted extensive tests on the coated leather to ensure it is water, dirt and oil resistant.

Also coming in from our Osaka-based friends is Master-piece's collaboration shirt with one of the most quintessentially English brands that have a rich history spanning back longer than most clothing purveyors. Aquascutum was founded in 1851 by John Emary in the Mayfair district of London. Shortly after its founding as a tailoring company, the brand developed water-repellent fabrics and trench coats that were worn by British troops in the Crimean War and World Wars I and II. In 1976, Aquascutum introduced their club check pattern that would become the brand's icon. Since then, the brand has been patronized by celebrities and popularized by youth culture. Master-piece celebrate this revered British brand's heritage with a shirt that combines the iconic club check pattern with functionality and modern aesthetics. With backpack wearers in mind, this particular piece features ventilated back construction to alleviate the stuffiness felt when carrying a backpack for long periods of time. The "Coolmax" mesh lining excels in moisture absorption and is quick to dry, combining perfectly with the relaxed aesthetic of the garment to reduce overall skin contact.
