We Love: Hobo Style

This recent release is only available in Colette (Paris) and select stores in Tokyo but we’re hoping it makes worldwide distribution soon. A book by the founders of Japanese fashion brand Porter Classic, father and son Katsu & Leo Yoshida, illustrate photographs of hobo style, legendary hobos and their artifacts, ranging from items such as hats, jackets, and bags to shaving razors and walking sticks. The book pays homage to the bygone American culture of the Great Depression and contains beautifully depicted patched, repaired and worn-out garments to inspire us all.
