The Japanese line Whereabouts just sent around pics of their F/W 09 collection, and they would appear to be fully in the grips of our favorite decade, the 1970s.

This woodsy look was what caught our eye most immediately, but there are also Bjorn Borg-ish v-necks, velvet blazers and something that looks an awful lot like a leisure suit. The look isn’t a full blown trend just yet, but with a few sunglasses and little help from Scott Sternberg, it will be soon enough.

A lot of good stuff has come out of Japan recently, but they haven’t had much in the way of suits. Until now, anyway.

Our friends at A Continuous Lean tipped us off to the Japanese brand Whereabouts, currently on shelves at L.A.’s *H. Men*.

Free of the pop-art touches we’ve come to expect from the land of Mario, Whereabouts seems content with thin lapels, tasteful tailoring and impeccable fabrics. The look has served them well in Asia: they’re stocked in more than 20 boutiques and department stores in Japan, with four more locations in China and Korea. In the States, however, the label's still under the radar.
