Cult Tokyo label 45R lands in London

Cool, clever casualwear

Founded in Tokyo in 1977, 45R is a made-to-last casualwear label with a well-worn, wide-cut aesthetic, that puts hand-sewing and hand-weaving front and centre. Outside Asia, it has three shops in Paris, three in the US and has just opened one on London’s Brook Street. Exquisite indigo pullover shirts (£650) seem almost vintage, as do the blue and white linen Kasuri overshirts (£710), which look like they’ve been washed hundreds of times, while the denim Painter trousers (£540) are like much-loved and many-times‑repaired favourites.
