We just finished NY and Tokyo show!
Thank you everybody!!! (Takeshi)
These are my clappy drawings collected at factory…..and forgot about them brought home a while ago.
Some are newer or older…but can’t tell exactly when since many styles are always come back…
Most of them are not for serious use…given with pattern to show cutter what kind of style (roughly)
….so some of them are as loose as it gets…
New idea came out as I was slideshowing them…
Yet some of them happened to be “I did already”….
Since I have been doing similar stuff in similar flavor for long time, I can’t recall all the designs I did before….
So sometimes new model came out under different name and style#…..
Days for sample making….

Some people may remember….that we had only pullover styles in shirts range when we started.
I don’t recall exactly why I did that way…but I remember I was into pullover style since almost nobody was making or wearing back then…and I wanted to see “shirt” as more “outerwear” at that time, so it is a different role compare to today’s Post O’Alls shirt range.
In my personal trend, shirt has been sort of “semi-out” for a while, but start feeling fresh since early last year, I guess.
Image-wise, it is shirt, but more like you wear on top of all, or sleeve visible with vest worn over it…
Anyway, I realize I start feeling like when I started Post O’Alls…
Top of my image list….is various kind of “crafts man”?
Start feeling like to do all denim/navy collection again!

Denim continued here in NYC as weather is nice….
And start feeling like dress shirt again….

That was denim I wore most…in my last trip to Japan.
Here are denims I wore overthere…
Personally, I like to wear more navy/denim range in fall & winter, then more taupe/sage range for spring & summer for last several years…but start from this spring, more navy/denim visible and denim/denim range come back from long absence.
For bottoms, I wear mostly 5 pockets. More stone/sage pants up to early last year, then more denim….yielding to various faded range now.
I heard for some people, denim(top)/denim(bottom) seems difficult or odd.
To me, it is natural or normal since I started that way…back in ’60s.
But it is so rare for me to feel like denim/denim these days…..but started feeling like so again.
I anyway like to wear denim/denim indoor ( my room ) all the time, but I go out denim/denim + these days…

I was trying new styles as usual….but then, I was not ready …..it has been warm for a while, then dropped suddenly and drastically….
Here, my Montbell jacket’s turn…..emergency remedy for this sudden freeze.
Just slip it underneath my Post jackets…..
Then I have to try normal layerings later…
We went up to north of Tokyo…Saitama pref….
Then, on the other side of the planet, in NYC @ John’s office…
Cheers! from Japan
We have numbers of obscure design over the years….
This one is an oddball, I think.
I remember we used military-spec GRIPPER snap fasteners for this style….in the place of our Logo’d buttons.
Unusual pocket layout….reminds me original MATTALINI, but this is older.
We mainly used poly/cotton twills for E-Z Long jacket, but also had a denim version as well…
