Emil and Sandy Corsillo, the brothers behind The Hill-Side series of accessories, turned their appreciation for hardwearing goods and awesome materials into a full-on retail store about two years ago. Since then, they've done a series of collaborations with companies like Gitman Vintage shirts and Rancourt Shoes, but they've also established the shop as a go-to spot for awesome, obscure Japanese brands. Stock up on goods from the likes of Kapital, Battenwear, and Blue Blue Japan, while getting a look at gear from other cult brands like Arpenteur, Folk, and soft hemp tees from Jungmaven. Don't forget to grab an Astronaut Ice Cream or Mast Bros. Chocolate bar for the road.
