[POST O'ALLS THE SUKIMONO BOOK] Publication Announcement

A book on post-overalls will be published by ``THE SUKIMONO BOOK''. We asked Mr. Harada, a stylist who specializes in used clothing, to briefly review the past 30 years since his debut in 1993.

We are proud to announce that “THE SUKIMONO BOOK” is publishing a book about Post O`Alls. Mr. Manabu Harada, the author of this book did a great job of summarizing brand's 30-year journey.

This book, from the foreword/afterword / foreword and afterword
As the name suggests, this is a playground for lovers. Putting aside fashion, trends, and marketing, this is a book surrounded by things collected by people who love them because they just love them.

As the title states, this is a playground of dilatants, fanatics, and connoisseurs “SUKIMONO”. We seek neither fame nor fortune, nor do we strive to start a movement or fad. We gather together to show our passion in this book because we must, because we are driven to do so.

“Post Overalls”, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, is the first brand archive to be introduced in Sukimono Book. It was started in 1993 by designer Takeshi Obuchi based in New York. When I think about the items that have been made and when, my mind starts to get confused. Collected the best pieces of 1920s coveralls in 1993? For example, in the late 1990s, he created a model of fatigue pants in exquisite different colors.No matter how you look at it, there are many things that were pursued and enjoyed and commercialized more than 10 years ago when they attracted attention in the used clothing market. . I am convinced that Mr. Obuchi's avant-garde sensibilities have advanced the used clothing market in several ways over the past 30 years. The reason why second-hand clothing lovers respect "Post" must be because they feel that way. Lastly, the items I introduced this time are called "Old POST."

This is the first brand archive for Sukimono Book, celebrating the 30th anniversary of “Post Overalls”. Designer Mr. Ohfuchi started the brand in 1993 in New York.

It boggles my mind when I consider the items he created and its timeline. To be gathering good details of 1920s coveralls in 1993 or making fatigue pants with subtle shade variations of the parts in the late 1990s, Mr. Ohfuchi pursued and enjoyed creating items that would be understood and appreciated in the vintage market more than 10 years later.

In this 30-year journey, I`m confident that Mr. Ohfuchi's “ahead-of-his-time” sensibilities have pushed the vintage market forward in several ways. The reason vintage enthusiasts respect Post O`Alls is because they can feel this .

Finally, I would like to call the items introduced in this book “Old POST”.
