Uncle Sam is one of my favorite Japanese web shops. Though I cannot read Japanese, I frequently visit the site to check out the shop’s style blog. While I don’t recognize most of the brands on offer, I take inspiration from the shop’s artful presentation of snout to tail, total clothing ensembles. Someday, I hope to assemble a cleverly layered outfit worthy of Uncle Sam. My three zones of aspiration include upper body layering, accessories and the key interface of sock, shoe and trouser. Here are some recent looks that I’m admiring.
