The garments here focus on practicality as well as comfort, making it easy to find clothes for a variety of occasions. There is also a collection of shoes and accessories in the store, so you’re covered from head to toe. In Japanese culture, a man who gives off an air of fresh carefreeness is often described as “shio-kei” (literally, “salty,” as opposed to the intensity of a stronger flavor like soy sauce), and it’s just this type of man with whom URBAN RESEARCH DOORS is popular. Don’t miss this brand if you’d like to try out this kind of “shio-kei”-style fashion for yourself!

Jacob Cohen was born in Pontelongo (Padua), Italy in 1985. The current Jacob Cohen style was formed in 2003, the so-called "denim age."
Jacob Cohen pants have stunning leg lines, with three-dimensional cutting and tailoring reminiscent of Italian pantaloons. These pants make the leg look perfectly slim thanks to careful ironing work that eliminates excess wrinkles and sagging on the inside of the thighs.
It’s with these original features and a commitment to quality that Jacob Cohen express a brand concept that’s entirely unique.
