Shop Coat / K-1 / 01
"I found piles of military wear. How should we use this material? After a great deal of thought, I decided to make uniforms which can be used at shops. I hand-picked the best material from the piles and tried to classify each piece by type and by size. However, the sizes were too scattered to divide up this way. Even on items with the same design, the length of the sleeves were not uniform. Length, body width, all lacked uniformity. I finally decided to size them using the chest measurement. Because as long as the garment fits in the chest, everything else will fit fine. Let's leave it to the person wearing the garment to decide how to dress it up. The garment factory has told me repeatedly that "it’s easier to produce with new fabrics". We are not necessary to create if making with new fabrics. I believe there is a possibility to make the best use of us by doing inefficient things."
