This is my second post related to Women in Clothes (Blue Rider Press), a new book about women's relationship to clothes edited by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton.

As a contributor to the book and longtime resident of Tokyo--one of the most fashionable and fashion-conscious cities in the world--I started thinking about Japanese women's attitude towards fashion and wanted to know.

You probably already know this well Peter, but many of the traditions of Western Dress (and British formal wear in particular) were introduced during the Meiji Restoration ( – ).

During this period, thousands of foreign advisers were hired by the Japanese govt. to modernize everything from field artillery to ice cream production. Many Japanese men’s magazines cater to a mature audience, leaving few publications that draw in somethings too old for teenage-facing mags, yet without the dough to afford the luxurious sportswear found in ide Popeye, EyesCream fills this niche, and is the more streetwear fashion-forward of the two magazines.

EyesCream emphasizes the artistic, creative side of streetwear. We spoke to the book's author, W. David Marx, about the early days of Japan's fetishization of Americana style, its influence on modern-day streetwear culture, and how Japanese and American men's.

The history of Japanese traditional clothing is somehow the history of the development of kosode. In the result of the penetration of Buddhism and the system of Chinese government into Japan, there were adopted rules on the clothing of aristocrats and royal officials.

The clothing was classified into ritual, royal and working. The Great British Sewing Bee is the official tie-in to the first series of this popular primetime BBC TWO show.

The book is accompanied by a pack of five full-size pattern sheets, containing a traceable pattern piece for every piece needed to sew the garments, so you can get stitching straight away.

This is a list of pornographic magazines (or erotic magazine, adult magazine) — magazines that contain content of a sexual nature and are typically considered to be pornography. For inclusion in this list, pornographic magazines must be, or have been, widely available as a printed publication and contain hardcore or softcore images.

Book rights, and especially eBook rights, can be messy. UK publishers can’t just start selling books in the US, and vice versa. For most modern books by big authors, you’ll see the hardback and eBook versions being published at pretty much the same time around the world.

For older books that were released before eBooks were a big deal, and for smaller authors with publishing deals, however. The effect, then, is of a classic 20th century menswear aesthetic that, when viewed from a distance, seems American—but when viewed up close is far more Japanese.

The name Beams Plus may ring a bell to anyone who takes an interest in menswear, but probably means little to the rest of us. But, in fact, Beams is regarded as one of the most successful fashion brands from Japan, with over stores spanning nationwide.

Japanese fashion designers first made a splash in Europe 30 years ago, but Tokyo’s talents and streetwear styles are the next big thing in modern menswear. Adam Welch reports. This is a list of magazines primarily marketed to list has been split into subcategories according to the target audience of the magazines.

This list includes 'adult' pornographic magazines as well as more mainstream ones. Not included here are automobile, trains, modelbuilding periodicals and gadget magazines which happen to have a predominantly male audience.

With so many to choose from I've almost certainly missed many out. Below are my top 10 books set in Japan." 1. The Tale of Genji by Shikibu Murasaki. Genji is the son of a Japanese. A Johnny-come-lately on the fashion circuit, this used clothing shop in Shibuya’s Fire Street opened in Septemberselling a range of vintage menswear.

Boarding houses were common in most US cities throughout the 19th century and until the s. In Boston in the s, when the landlords and their boarders were added up, between one-third and one-half of the city's entire population lived in a boarding house.

Boarding houses ran from large, purpose-built buildings down to "genteel ladies" who rented a room or two as a way of earning a little.

During the half century from toJapanese children’s literature often served as an allegory of empire, educating youthful readers in particularly Japanese ideas of imperialism. This essay focuses on retellings of Japan’s most popular folktale, Momotarō (The Peach Boy).

In Tokyo, it is not an uncommon sight to see respectable employees on their way to work in the subway reading a manga comic with sexual content."The thing with menswear publications," sighs Paul Lawrence of London's vintage specialist November Books, "is they mostly all say the same thing whether pictorial histories or rulebooks.
