Title: All things WTAPS./108th entry「No super natural powers」

Once the exhibition is over, it is straight to catalog making.
Also around the same time meetings with magazine people start
to release what we want to convey towards each vector.
No need to mention how time passes by so quickly.
When claiming you have something you want to convey
you have to understand what you want to convey in an objective way.
This is probably true about anything.
And I feel it is something that goes without saying.
But, how it is good and what is good,
needs to be explained properly;
to make something together is a difficult process.

That is why really anything is like that. Any kind of thing.
Also this happens to be something so difficult too.

Title: All things WTAPS./107th entry「Let's take a break」

The staff dealing with WTAPS are only a few.
Working beyond barriers.
Many various things.
The pattern maker thinking of the daily menu.
Production using a sewing machine for minor fixes.
Press becoming the designer's assistant.
It would be terrible if one person ends up missing,
so it is always serious business while lending a helping hand.
That is why
even I, the director, is serious.
Buying joke good and playing pranks.

Title: All things WTAPS./106th entry「Thread patterns」

Out of this season, the pants which has the most skinniest sizing
with rough repair mods to both knees, random stain mods,
and three dimensional whisker mods; this is a piece clad with the true essences of modified denim
where the stitch work is also something noteworthy.
By using 2 colors of threads that are a different thickness, a contrast is created,
and by further usage of red cross stitches and bar tacks,
the finish is something truly eye-catching.
And of course, on the side, the now standard embroidery can be found.
Stitching on material which shows a wide range of expression through modifications.
Material and stitching;
please experience the feel created by each different thread.

The more you wear them, I feel that you will be able to see a different face.

Title: All things WTAPS./105th entry「Nice season」

It has become warm lately.
When going out and even when indoors, being lighter
feels really good.

Just a little more ahead, shorts and sandals will start to do their part.
Once you wear shorts, you end up wearing them until it becomes chilly
and sandals wherever possible…

Cool biz has been said for a while now
and since what you wear are few, many things become more apparent.
It will be unfortunate if you look all whatever
so it is best to be squared away, body and soul.

Imagining of the summer ahead
doing this and that for it while thinking;
actually, right now is the nice season.

Title: All things WTAPS./104th entry「Bum flap」

JUNGLE.CHOPPED are the short, cut off version
of the 6 pocket BDU trousers JUNGLE.STOCK.

For the 08SS season it was spec'ed with a fastener on the back body
and for the 11SS season under the name RUGS
it had small cloth patches layered on the knees and hips;
specs like these have been introduced
and the seat portion which has become standard over the last couple of seasons is a spec that has been chosen like the above.
If you look closely, the extra material on the seat portion of 6 pocket BDUs are based off of the center with a round shape towards the left and right going down to the crotch but the JUNGLE.CHOPPED
has a seam running from the waist to just above the crotch area
made with an image of having a separate bum flap hanging. 

The spot item tiger striped version which hit the stores the other day
are spec'ed as such and the solid version coming soon
emphasizes this portion even more.
