Two shirts are collaboration items from Wacko Maria with DJ Harvey and Bob Marley respectively. The sweatshirt by Kunichi Nomura’s Mild Bunch has DJ Harvey and Keb Darge’s names printed above their logo.

These three shirts are rare vintage items from the 50’s. Mori’s favorite open-necked design: Star of Hollywood, Gordons, and Del Mar (from left).

Mori’s sound system set up in the back of the shop. The speakers from Western Electric are from the 40’s, and the vintage monaural Altec Lansing Technologie power mixer and pre-amplifier are from the 60’s. Before Mori goes on a DJ set, he often makes his selections here.
