I just came across this on the glade website, the new HP+ emblem. As a historian with a keen interest in British Heritage this immediately jumped out at me as something which is not commonly seen with Japanese street-wear. However Nigo's upcoming collaboration with United Arrows, Mr. Bathing Ape, is on a similar wavelength taking its inspiration from Saville Row tailors like William Hunt. This could be the beginning of a tide of change from Nippon, where those slightly more up-market street-wear labels start to take influence from W1's finest. Head Porter Plus have created a brilliant coat of arms for the British Cut collection and I hope it is a theme which continues to come out of Tokyo
