The world just doesn’t seem as big as it used to. With cheap airfare meaning dreadlocked students can ‘find themselves’ for less of their parent’s money then ever before, and video-calling no longer being the preserve of 60’s sci-fi, the distant and mysterious shores of Japan aren’t quite as distant anymore.
But what’s this got to do with clothes? Well we’ve just got our mitts on a container of Journal Standard fresh from Japan. Operating from a smattering of stores all over Japan, only recently has Journal Standard been available outside of Nihon. Like all the best Japanese brands, Journal Standard take classic designs, like the Breton striped jersey or the 60/40 parka, and hone them in with super-attentive attention to detail.

Staying on the ‘Japanese brands that re-design western classics’ theme, we’ve also got some great new shoes fromWeaver Moccasin. Designed in Japan but made in Portugal by expert shoe-crafters, Weaver Moccasins are based on the much sought-after designs of a certain Staten Island Hip-Hop group's favourite Somerset shoe brand.
