Title: All things WTAPS./121st entry「Belting up」

This is my WOLF`S HEAD belt collection.
I call them "obi".
Some are WTAPS exclusives and some are personal
with most having a message or artwork.
To put on at the beginning of the day something that has the creator's spirit in it.
This is a daily routine now that I do not miss out on.

Title: All things WTAPS./120th entry「Polo shirts」

Polo shirts are one of the standard items for summer.
The name originated from being worn while playing polo but originally
it was something that became common after it was suggested as a tennis shirt in France.
That is why it is also known as a tennis shirt.
The shape is always something worn and with a shirt collar.
As it originated from the sport polo, it is a traditional item upper class people preferred
but in the 1960s it fused with the mods culture in England
and attained its current status as a fashion item.
The Fred Perry polo shirt had a strong impression in
WTAPS has different variations available
in the number of front opening buttons, collar line design,
sizing, and colors.
Quite simple, but it is spec'ed so that it is practical and versatile.
Why not find one for this summer?

Title: All things WTAPS./109th entry「Blue skies, white clouds」

It seems the rainy season is over.
Blue skies, white clouds.
I end up looking up and taking a photo.
It is such a season where the sun's rays are hard to feel thankful for
but you feel better than rain falling or cloudy skies.
Doing properly what you can only do during this season
I feel I think this way every year after the rainy season.
It is a short season once it is over
so if you hesitate you are lagging.
I am determined to
go lightly so the heat does not swallow me
and not overcoming the season
but riding it properly.

Title: All things WTAPS./118th entry「GREEN SHERPA」

Including the Sneak Collection,
the spring/summer season delivery has ended
but in reality, summer is coming up.

I receive the items ordered at the exhibition at the time of delivery
but when it actually comes to the time to use them,
there are things that I still need, so I make an additional order.

SKIVVIES for going on a long trip
or a SHERPA necessary for camping
or when frequenting the beach, shorts and the SLIPPER.

The end of the rainy season is right around the corner,
so do not miss out on buying what you wanted
by going over the spring/summer lineup once again.
And, watch out for sudden Sneak Collections.

Do not get caught missing out on what may show up at the store.

Title: All things WTAPS./117th entry「Hot and cold have nothing to do with it」

Okay, all logic and theory aside.

Honestly, there are many things I want to express.

Focusing on the silhouette when worn and making adjustments
getting rid of the hood and simplifying the neck area
taking the height of the collar and face side into consideration

arghhh, I ended up ranting.

Keeping it simple
trying to make possible as many updates
all the passion packed in
the plain look also has depth to it
that is why I
buy the WTAPS M-65 each time.
