How I Style Menswear with Yuzen Leather Osaka



Do you know that I am wearing this leather blazer, which's originally designed for men? Yes, that is right, I love wearing menswear, and I don't really go to the women's section at H&M, or other retailers anymore. While, I was traveling in Osaka, I had an opportunity to meet the owner of Yuzen Leather, the handcrafted bag brand from Osaka, Japan. Not only we were talking about the inspiration behind these beautiful handmade bags, but also getting to know the owner of Yuzen Leather. As mentioned in the previous post that I love meeting new people, so this was one of the days that counted. Especially, I have always wanted to know more about Japanese fashion industry, as well as, the local/traditional fashion sense! It is totally different from others!





Here at Yuzen Leather, it is the family business. From the design to the production, everything's run under the family members. Just look at the zodiac details on this blazer! How amazing it is?! 

Therefore, I wouldn't hesitate to put it on my off-shoulder dress, and these go-to ankle boots, which I literally wear almost everyday. The thing was I loved the fact that this masterpiece could completely change the vibe of my outfit. With just the satin dress, I looked a bit feminine due to the off-shoulder pattern. However, the blazer was somehow switched that vibe to the street grunge style. As you know, the urban grunge style is the personal branding of The Equinox Fashion. So, as one of the Thai fashion bloggers (แฟชั่นบล็อกเกอร์ไทย) This is what I called the 'personal trait' which makes me look different from others. 


How was the quality? It's the hand-made piece, so it was on absolutely point.

  1. What a man can do a woman can definitely do too, if not better even. You rocked that jacket! I love the slightly loose fit on you, the prints go perfect with your edgy styling.

  2. What a cool blazer! I recently enter to the mens section to check some clothes, at the end I bought a tshirt for a 12 years old, and I love it, but I think your styling it's def better than mine ♥

  32. I love men's wear, too, but unfortunately the stuff is often too big for me ... your blazer definitely is a perfect piece and it is so cool how you styled it!
