(FOR SALE) A Spring Summer 2002 General Research Series 2 ‘1013’ Fishing Multi-Pocket Cargo Jacket.

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 jacket from Kobayashi’s Spring Summer 2002 collection is a prime exemplification of his skill in fusing pragmatic outdoor-wear and style. With a heavyweight fan cotton exterior, this jacket features a traditional fishing-pocket layout on the front, equipped with several storage compartments, varying in shape and size. Accessorized with D-ring hooks and rustic gray hardware, this jacket fits an oversized medium and is in pristine overall condition. Here is the opportunity to purchase a truly incredible piece from Setsumasa Kobayashi’s legendary career at his past label, General Research.
