Gocho Moto Jacket
I needed somewhere to shoot the Spring ‘20 styles for SWB and my mind went to the rooftop of the Techwear Intern office. As always, they were super supportive and gave me everything I needed to shoot both the editorial and product shots. Once the shoot was done, I took a peek at what they were working on and they showed me some leather from one of the suppliers they were working with.
They showed me everything they had from Ecco Leather, the highlight of which was a grey, perforated cowhide. The way it was perforated made it move and have properties like mesh, WHOA. I couldn’t stop gushing over the hide, so the Intern guys being the rad dudes that they are, just rolled it up and told me to go make something with it. Thanks guys!
“Gocho” in Japanese means Corporal; the badge of which inspired the design on the back. Why Corporal and not General? We all have to start somewhere…
