We try to prove how transparent manufacturing processes (consumers) are going to be able to evolve the vision of a permanent brand as a storyteller.

Personal impressions

I also went to both stores and tried it on. The quality was wonderful, the fit was very comfortable, it was simple but cool, and there were many clothes I like. However, I remember that this knit cap was sold for $ 95 in US and sold at the store for 11,000 yen in Japan.

Apart from the core fans who come to buy this story, I think that if it is a general customer, you may buy similar products with similar brands like Patagonia for half price. I got it. The new adventure of Kellytarer, as you can sympathize with the brand concept, keeps an eye on it.
