From soft tailoring to jumpsuits and outerwear, there’s no limit to the power of pleats. What’s more, after a year that forced us all to take a hard look at our wardrobes, streamlining for utility and comfort, the fuss-free yet high-end nature of Homme Plissé Issey Miyake makes it an invaluable asset for modern style.

Since the Japanese label has risen to the top of our style priorities, we thought it was only right to take a closer focus on what you need to know and where to buy Issey Miyake.

When was Homme Plissé Issey Miyake founded?

After around 25 years of research into pleating, Issey Miyake founded Homme Plissé Issey Miyake in 2013, the male arm of Issey Miyake Pleats Please which launched in 1994. Defined by its undulating textures, the collection relies on the forgiving characteristics of pleated clothing. The wrinkle-resistant, quick-drying, fits-all lightweight fabric used for Issey Miyake pleated pants was chosen to liberate the way that men dress.

How much is Issey Miyake?

As noted, Homme Plissé Issey Miyake deals in all sides of men’s style. That means that you can bag a pleated T-shirt or accessories for around $150. On the other end of the spectrum, Homme Plissé Issey Miyake coats and jackets range from $500 to upwards of $1500.
