It's around 2006 that i've met with Rin Tanaka for the first time .For those who still don't know [anyone !?] Rin is the author of "my freedam" books and creator extraordinaire of the now trendy"Inspiration" show. Rin kindly asks me if i was interested in sharing some pieces from my collection for some of his up coming books.Back then,i had no idea that i'll later start my modest block,so didn't mind that much sharing some cool vintage and the idea of being part of such project,kinda porn for vintage clothing collectors,sounded fun to me....So one afternoon,Rin came to my studio and shot for what felt like an eternity to me,asking for leather jackets, ,ww2 jackets,bowling shirts,denim and so on...the result,i've found it in my mailbox later,it was 2 samples of "my freedam" 5 and 6 .
the jacket featured today,was part of the collection shot by Rin that day.No bragging here,but when compared to the others in the book,as 90% of them are wool or cotton,i still feel lucky to have found such a gab jacket .what's even better to me, is that the rabbit's paw was original to it. As usual any info on the club are welcome ....cheers
