1/8 Takamura have produced a new bronze version of their popular Chamarra Trapecio jackets. These still have the perfect fit which our clients loved last year and they're finally available in bronze. We've also received a small restock of the black version of this jacket.
1/8 Takamura is a brand which we've been carrying at Self Edge Mexico for over four years now. The brand is owned by a young Mexican designer from Mexico City by the name of Guillermo Vargas. His great grandfather was Japanese, hence the name of his line. Most of his collections over the past few years have been for women yet recently he's starting to do more garments for men. We hadn't planned on bringing the collection into our four stores north of the Mexican border, but this jacket was too good to pass up.
The fabric is woven at a small mill outside Mexico City and it's all cut and sewn in-house at the 1/8 Takamura studio in Roma Norte, Mexico City. It's a fresh design and from the initial reactions we've gotten from our staff and clients at our stores it seems the jacket is a hit. Helps to see these jackets in person as some of the details/lines are lost in photographs. These are available now at all five of our stores in four colors, bronze being this season's new color.
