Wants & Desires | Traditional Weatherwear x To Ki To

Jan 29th, 2010 | Categories: Wants & Desires | by Michael Williams

The more I see from Tokihito Yoshida, the more I am amazed by the man’s work. Most will know the name from his highly sought after collaboration with Barbour on their Beacon range, but on top of that he designs a full collection of his own and various other side projects. File this under the category of various side project.

To Ki To teamed up to design a collection with Scotland’s Traditional Weatherwear and I have to say the stuff is damned good. My personal favorite has to be this Blackwatch plaid nylon jacket. Having seen the Barbour Beacon coats, as well as the To Ki To in real life, the level of detailing is first rate. The only problem I can find with the Traditional Weatherwear x To Ki To jackets is the fact that they are only sold in Japan. Here’s the product page (and they’re sold out).

    Eehhh…Not feeling this. It’s the plaid. Nah, don’t think so. I would however be more than happy to pimp most of what he’s done for Barbour.

    Not feeling it either. Too fitted, too short. Blackwatch is a traditional pattern best suited for traditional cuts. Much prefer the Hickey jacket over this.

    For me, it goes against the grain…. its like someone trying to fool you into something. Bad idea.
