The mythical brand Kapital has finally arrived stateside thanks to old school New Yorker, Pete Arbelaez and his incredibly curated Los Angeles based shop Craft. Another victory for the west coast comes in the form of one of the most interesting and forward lines from Japan. Craft carries several hard to find favorites like Norse Projects, Universal Works, Perfecto Brand by Schott, Farm Tactics and Red Wing.
With Craft's emphasis on American workwear and tailored classics, Kapital takes things a step further. For those unfamiliar with the brand it's Gypsy, Indigenous, Americana workwear inspired from the Japanese point of view. The photos and lookbooks really don't do it justice. You have to visit Craft to see the clothing in person, feel the fabrics and see the incredibly cool design nuances.
