    Yeah, I've seen them. I believe they are actually a chinese brand with a Japanese designer. They are certainly made in China.

    I think your Evisu comparison is about right. They have a similar spirit. Lots of embroidery, featuring the Monkey King of chinese mythology, and embroideries based on small japanese prints.

    Sorry I have no pics.
