I think I'm familiar with scanning now.
I've added some more text in hopes Heavy Tweed Jacket (HTJ
) would like to add some translation. He has already provided me with some great insight into the history of the book. While the photographer, Teruyoshi Hayashida
is credited on the cover of the book --the book was actually authored by three men. Kensuke Ishizu
, Toshiyuki Kurosu
and Moto Hasegawa
. The late Kensuke Ishizu
was the founder of Van Jacket, a Ivy style clothing company and it appears he was the master mind behind the creation of the book. Thank you, Mr. Tweed.
It's no secret that some Japanese are obsessed with the Ivy look. The word "Trad" has it's origins in Japan and I for one think the Japanese have taken care of the style far better than we ever could have hoped. Hardly surprising in a culture where Tradition rules, the Morning Coat is still worn and life is lived and appreciated for small moments. I hope you enjoy this small moment...
