US outdoor clothing brand Woolrich John Rich & Bros. has opened its first Tokyo flagship in the fashionable Omotesando neighborhood. In a bold display of brand heritage, the store’s standout façade is painted with the iconic Woolrich buffalo check plaid on top of a replica of the brick wall found in the company’s original Pennsylvania mill. Inside the two-floor space, the authentic, all-American aesthetic continues with a beamed timber ceiling, chunky wooden workbenches and carefully selected vintage props.

Men at Work – Amsterdam

Following major re-structure of the company and brand strategy, Dutch retailer Men at Work is back on form with a new concept store in Amsterdam’s Magna Plaza mall. The spacious basement unit features modular configuration and incorporates many of the unit’s original utilitarian features. Against the pristine white interior, pops of colour come from mid-century style furniture and neon signage. The offer is centred on youth brands, with an emphasis on the category Men at Work was originally best known for: denim.
