We're not sure when the whole Japanese selvedge denim thing first started getting warm (Evisu circa 1996 maybe?) but we're pretty sure that RMC were one of the first to put kimono threads in your back pocket. Prohibit designer Kyohci Kanasugi and Martin Ksohoh (RMC) cooked up their newest collaboration one afternoon in Tokyo last year and have basically split their true blues down the middle. One pocket gets the Prohibit treatment and the other is Kangi characters (in the RMC tradition) of one of four gods: success, happiness, prosperity and long life. Kinda like good luck charms for your ass.
