Since 2018, Soushio Otsuki has been creating items inspired by the military uniforms of the former Japanese army and
has become a topic of conversation in many fields.
The company expresses military uniforms as art rather than a political message, and has received high acclaim from
overseas as well.
Here we introduce some of the characteristics of Soushio Otsuki’s work.
What is SOSHI OTSUKI?
SOSHI OTSUKI is a Japanese men’s fashion brand founded by Soshi Otsuki in 2015.
It proposes dandyism created by Japanese mentality and tailor’s technique.
It also proposes a mode that can be established in real life.
Starting in the spring/summer of 2018, the brand has been producing items inspired by the military uniforms of the
former Japanese army for three seasons in a row.
The inspiration came from his exploration of the military through the production of the MA-1.
The MA-1 and mod coat are not politically inspired, but rather inspired by the high design quality of details unique
to the former Japanese military, such as pockets with pouch cloth attached and slits designed for sword use, just
like military wear from overseas that has permeated fashion, such as the MA-1 and mod coat.
