Engineered Garments may be the best known of the Nepenthes brands, but Needles is the in-house label from Japan that's quietly garnered a dedicated cult following with its kooky take on Old West, military, and athletic garb. Designed by Nepenthes' founder Keizo Shimizu, the brand is made in Japan and is constantly offering new materials and patterns in collections that look like they were conceived of by gypsy kings. It may not be for everyone, but the quirkiness of Needles allows it to escape being pigeonholed into any one category and is exactly why so many guys with unique style love it.
