(FOR SALE) A Pair of 1998 General Research ‘Parasite’ Multi-Pocket Overalls.

General Research is a brand deeply rooted in the creation of practical lifestyle garments. Founded by Setsumasa Kobayashi in 1994, the brand´s short lifespan as General Research was changed to Mountain Research in 2006 due to copyright infringement. Despite having no formal education in fashion, Kobayashi has built a vibrant career, spanning more than 25 years in both accessories and clothing. With a highly conceptual lens on fashion, it is no surprise that nature is deeply woven into Kobayashi’s DNA. Splitting his time between Tokyo and his isolated retreat in the Nagano mountains, General Research’s design inspiration comes largely from Kobayashi’s hands-on experience facing the wilderness head-on. As a result, the functionality of the garments created for General Research are built to meet the needs of any outdoor enthusiast, while remaining just as appealing in appearance.

This particular pair of overalls from Kobayashi’s infamous 1998 Parasite collection is a prime exemplification of his skill in fusing pragmatic outdoor-wear and style. With a heavyweight fan cotton build, these overalls feature the signature Parasite pocket detailing down the entire back, this full jumpsuit features a mechanic-pouch front for ease of access and adjustable straps that allow for the shape to be altered to the wearer’s proportions. This piece is a size medium and is in amazing overall condition with minuscule wear. Here is the opportunity to purchase a truly incredible piece from Setsumasa Kobayashi’s legendary career at his past label, General Research.

Size: Medium

Styled with a pair of ES Accel Pro Low Top Sneakers.
