Dress It Down

The first of our favorite ways to wear a Noragi Jacket, dressed down over a plain white or black tee—timeless and classic. Designed to flexibly work as a light jacket piece, add your favorite pair of shoes (no sketchers allowed).  Our AKASHI KAMA Noragi gives simple, functional, Japanese Streetwear style.

Pair With Lightwash Denim 

Almost nothing is as timeless as a simple tee and lightwash jeans. You can easily wear a Noragi as a casual look in place of a cardigan or standard shirt jacket, over a tee or button-down shirt with a pair of jeans.

As A Layering Piece

All of AKASHI-KAMA’s noragis are made with unique & high quality fabrics from Japan making it the perfect piece to use as a subtle detail mid-layer under a thicker jacket. Our Noragi gold ends (whether tied or left hanging) look great with techwear styled pockets and chore coats alike.

Dress It Up

Pairing a Noragi with more formalwear like a button-down or a tie gives it a whole new aesthetic. Fold over the collar for some extra collar room and pair it with a mock neck for a true flex. Red wine optional.

Add Accessories

Add a wide brim hat or dad hat. Skip the headwear all together and cuff the sleeves with some wrist candy and chains. Or do both.

All Black Everything

Go no-color, keep everything muted, and the Noragi still stands out. Black pants, black Common Projects, and black shades work with a Japanese Streetwear tonal look and premium materials. Our Akashi Kama Noragi Jacket shines as the signature top in a simple fit.  (Also who remembers that Lupe song?)
