Could you imagine if Michael Jordan had a younger brother who was equally as talented, but was trying to create his own lane so he wasn’t in MJ’s shadow? That’s essentially what Takuji Suzuki is doing with Japanese brand ts(s). Many a clothing discussion is had with his brother Daiki Suzuki of Engineered Garments, but he doesn’t let it sway his designs, which are definitely making a huge push in the States as Japanese brands continue to thrive. New interpretations of Americana with elongated flannel shirts and contrast-sleeved hunting jackets make basic, everyday items thought-provokers and topic-starters. Takuji and ts(s) are at the forefront of this new wave American bandstand.
