As the world becomes more globalized, Asian clothing brands are expanding their market reach by foraying more into the Western market; Japanese clothing brand WTAPS unveils jacket styles to help draw in fashion-conscious consumers with designs that are inherently traditional.

Including a traditional Hanten in the collection, the three jacket releases by WTAPS help to merge Japanese clothing with modern style aesthetics to help make the customs more translatable to those who aren't situated in Japan.

Created with extra padding to be warm enough for Western winters, the jackets from WTAPS are an example of how clothing styles are being updated with North America consumers in mind to help expand market horizons and increase the global economy.
