Himel Brothers Leather would be nowhere without the support of friends and our customers. This month with the generous time of Matt Barnes Photography http://mattbarnesphoto.tumblr.com/ , my friend James Thompson, and the excellent team at Clutch Magazine in Japan we are very proud to have this story featured. Clutch is a cutting edge magazine featuring the best of the best of craftsmanship globally. Hopefully there will be an english version coming soon!
One of the most exciting times of the year is February. Nancy and I get to travel down to Los Angeles and Las Vegas and participate in the most exciting happening in the clothing and design world, Rin Tanaka’s Inspiration. Inspiration you say…what is it. Well if you were ever interested in meeting the underground movers and shakers in the design world, the vintage dealers that work with them, and throw in a culture jam of California surf culture, Japanese travellers and designers and store owners and cool music, well that is Inspiration.
This year I am especially pleased as my good friend Eric Schrader from Junkyard Jeans will be showing off all the latest Himel Brothers Jacket models in his booth on the Queen Mary. Also very exciting news , Himel Brothers is featured in Lightning Magazine’s newest launch, Clutch Magazine.Â Clutch’s North American debut will be at Inspiration. So if you were ever interested in seeing an HBL jacket up front and personal and you happen to live in the Greater Los Angeles area, come on down to the Queen Mary this weekend, or make your way out to Project Las Vegas and give us a look
