Wild Things Japan takes inspiration from the Wild Things USA brand . The clothing offered takes on the heritage of clothing made for the American army, but with a truly vintage style highlighted by the brand. The Wild Things Japan collection, based in Tokyo, goes even further by drawing inspiration from original Japanese style with pieces that are both useful and timeless. The brand's products are made from high-quality materials, which allows them to withstand the most extreme conditions.
To really understand the direction of this brand, we can dive into its history: It begins with two mountaineers, Marie Meunier and John Bouchard, who decide to manufacture clothing for the mountain in Massachusetts. In 2004, they signed a contract with the U.S. Army, which showed the world the quality of their creations and brought the brand to what it is today.
What makes Wild Things stand out is its commitment to using environmentally friendly materials, as well as its recognized durability. This allows consumers to keep their purchases longer, reducing waste.
Wild Things' Monster Parka
The Monster Parka is a long jacket using military PCU (Protective Combat Uniform) equipment and is used as a "level 7" jacket, which means that it is the last layer to be worn in extreme cold. For example, it is suitable for the Arctic climate with temperatures down to -51 degrees Celsius. What differentiates it from the old military jackets is the weight, or rather its lack of weight, thanks to a material that Wild Things was one of the first brands to recognize its importance, the "PrimaLoft", which allows to keep warm even when wet.
Wild Things' Happy Jacket
The Happy Jacket is the little sister of the Monster Parka. It is a shorter jacket created with the same standards as its big sister. This one still allows you to face the toughest climates, but in this one the bottom of the jacket is at the waist, which makes it a little more suitable for everyday combat. The Happy Jacket has a sturdy two-way zipper, as well as two large mesh interior pockets, originally designed to dry gloves while on the move.
