ever noticed that japanese designers always come back to military themes over and over again and that they do it loads better than the americans, the british, the italians, or the french? from camouflage, to naval uniforms, to flight jackets, to the iconic trench coat, those japanese sure know how to deconstruct and reconstruct all our western fashion archetypes. i reckon its one of the advantages of being an outsider looking in. which works well for me because i've never met a piece of clothing with epaulets i didn't like.
