THE SITE SHORT
orSlow is the brainchild of Japanese apparel designer Ichiro Nakatsu who's unrelenting focus on high-quality fabrics, durable construction and classic styling has made the brand a household name in his native country. His deep devotion to vintage military and workwear products is made clear in the label's stylistic hallmarks, but as the brand evolves, further experimentation with silhouette and fabric choice lends it a contemporary feel that sets it apart from many of its 'reproduction' contemporaries.

CAL O LINE
CAL O LINE is the label of Japanese Designer Toshiharu Kaneko. Since his teenage years, he has been a devoted student of American culture with a distinct love of the outdoors and surfing. After working as a brand designer and director for other labels, he started CAL O LINE in the Fall of 2015, a brand that reflects his own experience, lifestyle, and familiar vintage elements from what he sees as the "golden age" of American culture and the counterculture born in response to it. Through his exploration and tongue-in-cheek subversion of the essential categories of "Workwear", "Military", "Outdoor", and "Uniform", Kaneko has created his own design language that is as playful and fun as it is durable and functional.
