Our genius eastern brothers, the Japanese, who for quite a while have been leaders when it comes to streetwear have just invented something that will make you track-suit-lovers spoil your synthetic little track suit pants.
An actual track suit (emphasis on the “suit”) has been made in corporation with ASICS, retailer keisuke kanda, and clothier ANREALAGE. Featuring proper suit accoutrement like lapels, pocket square insert, ties, button-down shirt, and a tailored cut, this collection definitely straddles the link between sportswear and office attire. While it is a bit more of a satirical take on the idea of sportswear and casual wear becoming one (as mention in this previous post), split into individual items such as the shiny black “salaryman” sneakers the idea is pretty damn cool. The pop-up shop is currently open in Tokyo until the 25th of September and you can head over to the official project website for more details.
