Lad Musician

Yuichi Kuroda is the designer behind Lad Musician. Started in 1995, he has clung to the glam-rock aesthetic that originally inspired him. With homages ranging from Robert Frank's film ' Cocksucker Blues' chronicling The Rolling Stones, to The Stone Roses and record label 4AD. Lad Musician's clout in the Japanese fashion world is continuing to grow and expand into international markets as well, gathering a cult-like worship amongst those in the know.

The popularity of this Tokyo-based brand has perpetuated a new trend in Japan in regards to body image; men who want to be fashionable, tall and gangly. Well, I may not have that physique but the cut of their tees fit me just fine.
