Japan is so culturally voracious, it takes most lines a while to incorporate some of their homegrown influences. Luckily, it looks like the fine folks at N. Hoolywood are up to the task.

This one’s another Wrangler collab, but now they bring genuine East Asian flavor to the cowboy staple, via those imprinted crossbars running up and down the central placket. It’s straight out of a traditional Japanese farmer jacket, but it couldn’t work better in denim.

The only problem? So far it’s only sold in Japan, and we bet it’s a whole lot more appealing to our side of the Pacific.
