The Japanese have quite a knack for copping classic American sportswear and lending the looks back to us in better condition than we’d carelessly left them. Bedwin of Tokyo’s line for Winter 09 mines the best of blue-collar workwear and the chic of collegic co-eds, then pops in a So.Cal. skater-punk slant to punch things up. Risk-free basics are well accounted for (university cardigans, tapered chinos, thermal henleys) while those seeking more daring duds will get their kicks through Bedwin’s over-the-knee knickers, canary-colored pea coats, and Dr. Dre-style shirt jackets in quilted flannel. With such a wide range of references, everyone from Dartmouth profs to Dogtown punks will find something of themselves in Bedwin’s offerings.
