NEIGHBORHOOD is a Japanese streetwear brand founded in the Harajuku district in 1994 by Shinsuke Takizawa. The brand produces premium quality clothing using military inspirations and biker subcultures to combine with influences from London punk, and 70s military and technical outdoorswear, always reinterpreted with refinement and highest quality Japanese manufacture.
NEIGHBORHOOD is now considered one of the most influential brands in the modern contemporary style, along with WTAPS, UNDERCOVER and A Bathing Ape.
Takizawa has shaped his brand with the concept of crafting clothes that pay homage to motorcycle riders and their culture—a cultish subculture in its own right. A rider himself, Takizawa’s main hobbies include customizing cars and motorcycles and playing bass guitar in a band, interests clearly reflected in the clothes his brand produce.
