最高 (さいこう) - Saikou
Japanese for best, the greatest or finest
Saikou Apparel is Scottish run company directed by Ross and Maizy from a small office in Glasgow. Everything from design right through to postage is handled in house to ensure the best quality product and experience for our customers.
We are inspired by our love of Japanese fashion but grew tired of the extortionate high street price tags. We aim to bring the world our take on East Asian street wear with the quality you would expect but at affordable prices.
SAIKOU X ELECTRIC CITY
In October 2020 we launched our Electric City Range. We were inspired by the bright neon lights of Tokyo’s Akihabara district, its electronic and manga retailers, and of course, the arcades!
We want to celebrate the eccentricity, wonder and excitement of this magical district with our new range. We have brought you a range of T Shirts that capture the themes of Electric City, a range of collectable pins inspired by Gachapon and selection of accessories to allow you balance function and fashion.
SAIKOU DOES SPRING
On April 2020 we launched our first official range for Spring. In Japanese culture the Cherry Blossom, Sakura 桜の花, are symbolic of renewal and new beginnings. Their beauty peaks and then fades in a matter of a few weeks. We want to celebrate this stunning process with fresh limited edition additions to our range to add some lighter tones to our variety of products.
Saikou are embracing the fresh start that Spring offers by introducing lighter zipper hoodies, hats and Tshirts more suited to the fairer climates of the season. We have renewed some of our old ranges and introduced the previously well received Rossboomsocks X Saikou beanies in white.
We hope you are as excited to own some of these products as we are to be producing them. While stock may not last longer than the Sakura blossoms we are confident their beauty will.
SAIKOU X ROSSBOOMSOCKS
Ross has used big companies to distribute merch in the past and was unhappy with the experience. This time he decided he wanted to provide a better service for his fans and ensure everyone involved was treated fairly. By handling all stages of design, using locally sourced printing and hand package every order ourselves we can guarantee that every step from conception to your front door is handled with care and enthusiasm. Thank you for supporting us! Please peruse our selection of limited stock items. We really hope you will love our merch as much as we do. Due to the success of our beanies and hoodies that we launched in December 2019 we will be reissuing them in small quantity in early 2020 - be sure to get them while you can!
