UNIFORM | Horse Blanket Research Wraps

Maybe we need a new category called "worth flying to Japan for" because there's a list piling up on my computer. Topping it are these Horse Blanket Research wraps that are hand-made from wool in Japan's Aichi Prefecture. I can't tell you much beyond looks, mainly because most of what I've found is in Japanese or poorly translated English, but if you can find a website that will ship to the U.S. (this online retailer may be a possibility) these guys fetch around ¥25,000, which converts to about $240. I love how versatile and functional these pieces are, but mostly how they remind of the American West...leave it to the Japanese to totally nail the Americana aesthetic.
