The “66 Early Period”, Mr. Nishiguchi Wouldn’t Pair It Any Other Way!
Nishiguchi-san coordinates a Stile Latino double breasted jacket and an Agnes B. border T-shirt, against a pair of just-fitting 66 “Early Period” model jeans. This is mix style in Nishiguchi’s fashion, weaving in old items and new. “I pair blue items a lot with faded jeans,” is how he puts it. While it is a simple outfit that narrows down the number of colors, the unique appearance of the vintage jeans brings out an impressive elegance.
There is a bandana folded and inserted into the back pocket. “It’s really the same feeling as adding a pocket square,” says Nishiguchi. In summer, theres more occasion to take off your jacket, however, it’s a stylistic queue that keeps the same aura of elegance in that situation.
The shoes are Enzo Bonafe bit loafers. This standard combination with denim has been known for ages, and is one that Nishiguchi often coordinates with his footwear. Notice how the buttons on his jacket, the bit on his shoes and the ring on his finger are all uniformly gold.

Born 1977. Shuhei Nishiguchi is a Men’s fashion director who is now flooded with interview requests each month from every fashion media outlet, not least of all this one. While a specialist in proposing updated classic style, he also has an apprentice-like passion for vintage, formerly working in a used clothing store. “I see new items and old items on a level playing field,” says the man himself, whose unfettered mixture of both aspects in his styling garners world-wide notoriety. In March of this year he published his second work, “Nishiguchi Essentials 100” (One Publishing Editions).
