Collection: Rats



RATS was born in downtown Tokyo by founder Mano Katsutadashi in 2004.
Mano's influence on the underground culture and street style of Tokyo is undeniable having flourished during Harajuku's infamous 80's and 90's, running the streets with his 'Gamblers' crew and opening his own bar Hide and Seek where Urahara pioneer's such as WTAPS' Tetsu Nishiyama & Good Enough's Hiroshi Fujiwara would frequent.

Now nearing 20 years since it's inception both RATS and Mano are revered leaders of the Tokyo scene sharing the streets and collaborating with long time friends in Neighborhood, WTAPS, Undercover & more.

RATS is simply the reflection of Mano's philosophy and the way of life he leads. Tokyo style.
