With the release of our latest Catalog, Diamonds in the Rough, the folks over at Stylesight once again honor us with their kind words and recommendations! They have been very loyal and dedicated followers of our catalogs and brand, and we can’t feel honored enough for their consistent and timely follow ups to our catalog releases and other news.
Please take the time to read their right up as well, as they give much deserved recognition to our photographer, Eric Kvatek, Free and Easy, for their behind the scenes shoot and magazine spread, and the entire catalog production team.
In preparation for some unprecedented changes to KAPITAL’s presence in Okayama and Kojima, there are some big changes going on with the Okayama store and its schedule. As KAPITAL seeks to open new up new doors and expand further and further, we have decided to converge our Okayama store into a special Weekend Only Outlet Store, presenting all of our seasonal items with special prices to our beloved customers. Hours and hours of preparation have been spent to shift the Okayama store into its new style, but all preparations have come to an end for this very first weekend!!!
Please check back regularly for new updates with the store and please view the schedule below for April!
In March 2013, KAPITAL held the first ever (to be annual) UNION SPECIAL Masters of Hemming contest.
Eight fierce competitors, representatives from various KAPITAL stores, gathered at KAPITAL home grounds in Kojima to compete for the coveted first ever Grand Prize and Title.
They practiced and honed their skills and then took the spotlight one at a time in front of KAPITAL’s master class professionals, seasoned veterans of the first ever KAPITAL Factory, and, the President himself – TH, who stands second to none when it comes to precision, speed, and aesthetic beauty in his hems.

The three catalog releases each year for KAPITAL are pivotal points in the year and the release is looked forward to by not only our loyal customers, but the entire KAPITAL team as well. There are many that give an arm and a leg to be able to witness the catalog shoots. Not only is each shoot located at a carefully selected location by our super combi duo – Kiro and Eric, but the team of assistances, designer’s, stylists, models, and support staff, are all hand selected from various places around the world.
Other than the generous off shots posted by Eric himself on his private blog, there are basically zero sources of information pertaining to the behind scenes of the KAPITAL catalog shoot… until now. With the timing of the release of the most recent catalog – Diamonds in the Rough, KAPITAL worked alongside Free and Easy to release a twelve page spread in the May issue giving insight, depth, and quality information behind what goes into a KAPITAL shoot. In addition, KAPITAL’s beloved new Century Denim is featured in time with our Spring LEGS store Hanami event (taking place today, March 30th).

Come on down!
A preview of the A/W 13 collection – a “close-up.”
The Japanese version of Valentine’s Day and the respective White Day that follows baffles some foreigners. In Japan, on Valentine’s Day, women give chocolate to men. This is seen as a chance to tell that special someone that you have had feelings for them, and you let them know by giving some “maji-choco” or “serious chocolate”, chocolate that conveys your true feelings. For all of the other male friends or male co-workers, “giri choco” or “obligation chocolate” is given. Department stores are swarmed with girls and women scouring for just the right assortment of chocolate and various boutiques and stalls promoting their special “Valentine’s Day” chocolate packages.
Because Valentine’s Day is for the girl to give chocolate to the guy… the boys must have a day to return the gesture, and that is where White Day comes in. Exactly one month after V Day, on March 14th, the guys give back to the girls. Generally, a guy is supposed to give back double in value what he received one month prior. Of course, not only chocolate, but other sweet little gifts are more than ok, if not expected.
It is quite a fun variation to the western Valentine’s Day culture and searing and splurging for just the right gift can be quite fun. Which is why we too at KAPITAL want to help all you fellows choose something special for your lady!
