If there was ever a brand whom I constantly turned to for inspiration on a variety of menswear related subjects, it was most definitely Camoshita. In my opinion, Yasuto Kamoshita is, along with fellow United Arrows mastermind Hirofumi Kurino, one of the most influential creative personas in the current men’s “fashion” scene. Influential not in a hyped sense, but in a much profound and ultimately richer one: his unique interpretation of men’s style explores the core essence of menswear in a transversal manner, superbly merging influences from both Western and Eastern cultures.
His unparalleled knowledge of distinct styles such as American Ivy League and Italian sprezzatura, allow Yasuto Kamoshita to subtly imbue them with a trademark Japanese touch, resulting in a unique blend of garments that exude sophistication the moment you lay eyes upon them. The unmatched mix of graphic patterns, textures, lengths and proportions, along with an inherent comprehension of how formal and casual can seamlessly coexist within an ensemble, is only surpassed by the distinct color combinations on display.
The brand continuously delivers an uncanny color palette, often overlooked by many, out of fear or ignorance… however, when you’re faced with micro patterned maroon polos mixed with mustard jacquard knits and a range of brown, burgundy and turquoise, you can’t help but feel utterly overwhelmed on all fronts: both by his foresighted genius and your inability to understand the full potential of those combinations.

How to keep your tights from snagging, plus the best new tights
It’s that time of year when it’s too cold to throw on a dress or skirt without a pair of tights. When pulling on these delicate necessities, we all know how fragile they are. Lucky for you, we’re sharing six helpful tips to keep your tights in the best shape. Read our helpful hints below and update your collection with the best sheer, knit and opaque tights of the season.
6 Tips to Keep Your Tights from Snagging
1. Keep your toenails and fingernails filed. You don’t want to have jagged edges that could possibly snag your tights.
2. Once you put your tights on, give them a light spray with your hairspray to make them stronger and more resistant to snags.
3. Don’t sit on rough surfaces. Especially if you’re not wearing thicker knit tights.
4. Carry a bottle of clear nail polish in your purse just in case you get a tiny snag. If you do, brush a little lacquer over the tear to prevent it from running.
5. If you’re wearing boots or shoes that rub, make sure you wear socks on top of the tights.
6. Hand wash your tights always. Use gentle detergent if you have it and hang them to dry.
