Ichiro Nakatsu, an avid collector of vintage denim and military work-wear, founded orSlow in 2005. As a kid, he owned a pair of denim dungarees made from a Cone Mills selvedge denim from the 1960s, the denim had a particular texture and feelings, It was irregular, simple, yet long-lasting.
The experience struck Ichiro and inspired him to recreate products that would carry the same qualities. Today, these qualities can be found in orSlow products. They are built simple, built to last, and built to invoke a unique experience to the wearer.
