The story of how we came to carry Neighborhood illustrates why we love what we do. Our Moby Dick of sorts, we’d tried for years to contact the brand before a mutual friend introduced us, and we flew to Tokyo ready to bring back a collection. But no. After the meeting, we were informed that we would have to wait three years, so we returned home empty handed. But true to their word, three years later we received an invitation to buy. The Neighborhood office is full of exotic plants, biker paraphernalia, and whatever founder and head designer Shinsuke Takizawa’s newest odd obsession may be, all of which become references for his unassailably cool streetwear.
