Mr Sasamoto and Mr Fukushima, Sales Manager and President respectively of Ring Jacket.
Ring Jacket are a manufacturer of off the rack and pattern order suiting based out of Osaka, Japan. I had the great priviledge of working with their product a few years back when we had our stock range made there, and the quality of product is exceptional. Meeting these two gents helped me to realise why.
The famous expression is "find a job you love, and you will never work a day on your life", and with Ring Jacket this is obviously the case. From their own suiting - a flannel db on Mr Fukushima, and a jacquard woven waistcoat and navy hopsack sports coat on Mr Sasamoto, these guys love their product. From collaborations with Evisu and Mastermind, they are also dipping into streetwear, bringing their know how and expertise to a younger audience.
So a trunk show in Sydney for the pattern order line? Who is interested?
