How come the Hachiko statue outside the JR station is here in front of the shop???


You are right! From now on, you can visit Hachiko statue right here at VANQUISH in Shibuya 109 Men's too!!

The story of Hachiko


Hachiko was an Akita dog and he was remembered for his remarkable loyalty to his owner Mr. Ueno, a university professor.  After his owner passed away, the dog kept walking to the station and waiting for his owner every day until the day he died. Everyone was touched by his loyalty and a statue was made specially for him and put in front of the Shibuya Station.


Hey, if you look carefully, there is one thing that is a bit different from the Hachiko statue in front of the station. So what is it??

The answer is the name!!! The name of the Hachiko statue in VANQUISH is called Pachiko not Hachiko!! Actually Pachiko was designed and made specially for the 10 years anniversary of VANQUISH. The producer of the new statue wants to make VANQUISH to become a famous spot in Shibuya just like the Hachiko statue in front of the station.


Look how detailed and cute Pachiko was made!!

Skajyan @ VANQUISH

Secrets behind the VANQUISH's Skajyan

This black MA-1 jacket looks stylish and cool, right?

Actually it is just the reversed side of the Skajyan we introduced above!! So just one jacket, it can bring you two really different styles!


About Skajyan

Skajyan fashion started after World War II when American soldiers in the Yokosuka area started to get their jackets embroidered with Japanese drawings and patterns. There are, however, two theories that explain the origin of its name. These jackets were called souvenir jackets among the soldiers. In 1960, the name changed to Skajyan. People say it is the shortening of the word “Yokosuka Jumper” and some say it is shortening of the word “Sky Dragon Jumper” since most people got that embroidered on their jackets. (information from youcojapan)


VANQUISH is focusing on the originality of their design, so even the materials they use or the parts that are not easy to see, they try to make the best of everything. This can't be compared by other brands!
