UNIFORM | Kapital scarves


The Japanese have a way of making almost everything consumable so much more desirable and exciting. The American heritage and workwear-based label Kapital is no exception. Their name is derived from the city of Kojima, known as the denim capital of Japan. Kapital has been in business for almost 30 years and makes men's, women's, and unisex clothing and accessories, but I have yet to find any of the women's stuff on the internets outside of Japan. Unionmade carries some of their men's collection here in the U.S. (including a few of the above scarves) and Anthem of London retails a selection as well. As much as I'd love one of their scarves, I'm dying to get my hands on some of their past catalogs, especially Surf Cowboys and Colorado Hippies (!!!). Their women's and men's lines are wild, definitely worth a look online. But seriously, two tickets to Kojima please.

Update: Reader Martha B. of Nibsblog just sent me a photo from a Kapital catalog she kept. Incredible.

The Japanese take so much more care in styling and details and the honoring processes.

I am so crazy about these scarves and that picture is beyond cool. I'd love to hear more about Japanese denim, which I know is a thing but not sure why it's so cool.
