We’ve already shown you staff kits from the likes of Berlin’s The Store, London’s Goodhood and Vancouver’s Livestock, and now we turn our attention to Japan-bred NYC menswear outpost Nepenthes.

Nepenthes’ diverse repertoire of hard-to-find streetwear labels skews towards functional garb with a flourish. Expect to find glorious utilitarian offerings from Japanese mainstays like Engineered Garments, alongside independent art and fashion tomes as well as debut collections from emerging fashion talent from all over the world.

This ultra-trendy menswear destination also has branches in Japan, but for those Stateside, its New York outpost is conveniently located if you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe arsenal. If you’re nowhere near NYC and simply on the hunt for some off-beat inspo, then take note of what Nepenthes’ staff are wearing below and follow the store on Instagram to keep up-to-date.
