bakuto893 is an independent company based in roma born from the passion for vintage of the founder members.
the project begins in 2007 with the first collection made of athletic vintage heather grey jersey and french terry typical of 50’s and 60’s american sportswear.
after a long research across fabric suppliers without concrete results, to reproduce the original heather grey of the last century, we made the fabric by our own starting from the yarns with the final result that bakuto893 ‘melange’ was all made of cotton instead than rayon and poly of the original.
the taste of the brand was already clear since the first capsule collection, 1950’s and 1960’s original sweatshirts repro, basic, pocket or printed t-shirts made with our athletic vintage heather grey french terry and jersey cotton fabric.
following the founders lifestyle, inspired by love for classic cars and motorcycles, by the passion for vintage military, sportswear and workwear clothing, the project has slowly grown joining to the sportwear collection shirts, blazers, jackets and vests all handcrafted by small factories respecting the italian tailoring tradition.
the mood is still the same, jacket and shirt made of high quality selvedge denim and chambrays weaved with old shuttle looms, french terry cotton sweatshirts and heavy weight jersey t-shirt with flavored prints inspired by history icons, motorcycling, military and surf.
we want to sell an emotion, garments that seem to have had a first life, which gives you the same feeling we had finding an original one piece covered by a pile of rags in a vintage market.
the recovery of ancient artisanal details of the past, the continuous search for high quality traditional fabrics, handcrafted tailoring, treatments and washes merges into a heritage style contemporary menswear, 100% made in roma.
