Bounty Hunter is a perfect example of how numerous Japanese brands appropriate a very specific aspect of American culture, filter and warp it with a unique perspective, and create something even better than the original. Bounty Hunter started as a Harajuku toy company in the 1995, and as their toys found an audience, founder Hikaru Iwanaga expanded to tees, hoodies, and other necessary basics. The clothes reflected the same attitude as the toys: what happens when children go punk? The simple formula of infusing American punk, rockabilly, and motorcycling culture into a Japanese toy brand has resulted in a brand that consistently puts out awesome clothes that are as badass as they are fun.
