Number (N)ine to close it's doors.

“Today we received a letter (an actual letter, so you know it’s serious) from Number (N)ine. It started with this quote: “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.” You guessed it: the Tokyo-based, Paris-showing men’s label launched 12 years ago by Takahiro Miyashita is closing. The fall ‘09 collection—portentously called A Closed Feeling—was the last. The letter went on to say “Over the last decade, Number (N)ine evolved, always forging ahead with a unique and potent vision, to emerge as one of the leading brands of Japan.” - Hint Mag

Say it aint so.

Takahiro Miyashita's Number Nine was one of my favorite brands over the past few years, they made some great product and were one of the brands who opened me up to the Japanese market years ago. It was truly a great run. Be sure to grab those last pieces before their all gone. The final Number Nine collection will be their Fall 09 collection appropriately titled "A Closing Feeling"
