There is so much right with this video on Sakamoto Denim from the early 1990s: the music, the video transitions, the direct translation of business Japanese terms into English. It's all worth it, however, for the debut of "silk denim" suits at the very end.

Warning: The video is a little patchy at the beginning.

Daisuke Kawasaki — founder of legendary independent Japanese music magazine Beikoku Ongaku — has written a novel called Tokyo Fool's Gold about a fictional 1990s Shibuya-kei-esque band Silver Machine.

In celebration of the book, select shop BEAMS made a tour T-shirt and tote bag from Silver Machine's (fictional) 1990 "From Here to Eternity" tour.
