Mission to Fedora Loungers: find out who this modern Japanese tailor is. His work is extraordinary. -perenthetical removed-Edit Matt Deckard
Hideki Okisaka's suits are prominently featured at a website that Geo kindly referred us to. It's called www.the30sstyle.com Other than that, I know nothing about him. Do you?
Imagine how expensive he is... the Japanese market for 'rare' reproduced garments is more than most Westerners can stomach.
The excellent factory made Japanese A-2 flight jackets start at around $1200, imagine what a bespoke/one-off/custom, '30s styled suit is gonna set you back...
You can see he uses some Holland and Sherry cloths too.
They are fantastic though, aren't they...
Looking with my good ear peeled.
Yes, the lapels are a bit wide and some of the jackets a tad long, but so what?
If Okisaka made them just a wee bit narrower and shorter, these suits would be ... well ... perfect!
Oh my!!! That's some nicely cut stuff ...

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
Would have replied sooner, but still drooling on my keyboard....
Really like the third one down- the light gray with belted back. Looks like something from Chinatown.
