From their humble beginnings as a storefront and fly-fishing outfitter in Sapporo, Japan, to their evolution and global acclaim as an official clothing label, Kaname Nagaoka’s South2 West8 has always been, first and foremost, a leisure and lifestyle brand centered around Tenkara. Meaning “from the sky” or “from heaven”, Tenkara is a traditional, minimalist form of Japanese fly-fishing requiring only a rod, line and fly. So, of course, dressing appropriately for the activity is key.
Now part of the enigmatic and diverse Nepenthes brand umbrella, South2 West8 still specialize in the appropriate apparel for that weekend fishing trip, but now that their utilitarian style has transcended the streams and been championed by fans in both city and country, the brand has expanded its scope to include some more modern designs in its collection... still inspired by the simpler side of life.
The Classic TENKARA PARKA Has Been Improved So That The Sleeves Can Be Removed And Attached From Last Season, And Its Presence Has Been Further Enhanced. A Fishing Jacket Designed For Traditional Japanese Fishing, Tenkara. Equipped With Various Pockets Designed In Three Dimensions And Various Sizes And Shapes. Flap Design With Velcro And Tab That Makes It Easy To Open And Close The Pockets Even With Gloves On. In Addition, A Vertical Zip Is Attached To The Main Pocket, Making It A Functional Design That You Can Put Your Hands In From The Side. The Lining Is Fully Meshed To Maintain Comfort Even In High Humidity Conditions. Also Includes Rod Holder And Removable Hood. From Actual Fishing To Town Use, It Is The First Place To Support Any Condition.
