Well, we call them CRUZER….
Here’s a brief progression…
1st version in Black Canvas, early 2000s.
This is sort of forerunner of all CRUZERS, Town & Country.
This reissue is from recent year, but original design was from late 1990s.
2nd version prototype, mid 2000s.
Now leaning towards vintage prewar FILSON flavor…
Like this example must be a good motivation….
The next version.
It now has cape-back instead of large pocket with side entries,
and more vintage FILSON-esque front layouts in the simplest manner.
In melton wool…
Then, from 2010 on to the current, this CRUZER-5.
And its original inspiration…WOOLRICH ( John Rich ) from 1920~30s.
Now, I start feeling like….this kind of relaxing mood…
This example is a FILSON from 1950s, rare variants in 3 pocket front.
Well, then I made a sample like this…
Then, I start seeing how the next one will be… ( Takeshi )
My friend Satoshi ( exact same birthday, year as mine ) introduced me this…..
You MUST see this…..it is just unbelievable for 1973!!!
