Finally a Japanese magazine for the American market.


It's being called a premium directory for men creating their own style. OWN magazine debuted this week presenting a selection of the cream of the crop brands in a photo-based catalog format, just like our favorite Japanese mags do. Issue No.1 includes photographic reports on brands including: Number (N)ine, Mastermind Japan, KVK, J.P.1920, Libertine, Yohji Yamamoto, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfield, Devilock, Surface 2 Air, Garni, Roar, Buddhist Punk, Cloak, Engineered Garments, Nike, Adidas and Polo.

There's tons of  product shots, detail photos, and fashion photo editorial pages. Features focus on innovative brands and exciting designers along with historical presentations of established men’s brands and pioneering designers. 

The Web site already has an online store where you can buy hard to find items from some of the world's coolest brands.
