Even if you’ve never stepped foot in the Land of the Rising Sun (highly recommend that you do) you’ll know that the Japanese fashion scene is unlike any other. While most people like to focus on the out-of-this-world costumes and Lolita dolls that are the norm on the streets of Harajuku, their more casual men’s streetwear looks are just as impressive.
With an Americana-inspired focus, they wear all the things you probably already own – logo sweatshirts, workwear chinos, utility jackets, vintage tees and more – but what sets their aesthetic apart are the finishing touches, like the shoes they style them with.
Details are never overlooked – sneakers feature bold logos or prints, stitching and laces are often done in contrast colours, and socks are worn to be seen, whether they’re styled with pant cuffs rolled or with sandals.
Get inspired and add these designs to your rotation this winter.
