Since its inception, Post O’Alls’ style remain unchanged - authentic in details and construction, distinctive in eclectic mix of various styles and fabrics, some adjustment if desired, with original characters built-in - and always rooted in vintage work clothes and other functional garments such as military outfits and outdoor garments, which were all evolved from work wear platform.
Takeshi Ohfuchi, the designer, has huge respect towards anonymous American vintage work clothes designs, especially from 1920~30s which he considers the very best - a great marriage of old-world craftsmanship and then emerging Machine Age inspired American industrial design. He believes many of the great American original designs have emerged and flourished in that era.
By wearing those vintage pieces daily since early 1980s, he became naturally aware of beauty in their patterns, unmistakable designs, and unique fabrications - the elements which make them so special and eternal - and the essence was thrown into manufacturing of Post O’Alls.
His original concept of Post O’Alls was, and still is, to create vintage-inspired but practically new clothes which could match his love - superbly detailed and beautifully constructed vintage pieces.
