contemporary leather meets samurai style. the designer, takayuki kato, studied with a traditional japanese armorer. now he makes super supple men’s leather jackets, boots and accessories, plus armour. the crossover pieces somehow work and anything can be made to order in leather, suede, python or croc. check out the full set of samurai armour in black python.
