Wacko Maria Fashion for Men
We'd bet you don't have much mustard in your wardrobe, but Wacko Maria 's sweater is here to make a strong case for the warm golden tone.

Wacko Maria 's 'Kurt' trousers are the kind of pair that would look cool with a simple tee and sneakers â" the Japanese label even refers to them as the 'skate pant'.

Though the conservative design of this cardigan belies Wacko Maria 's subversive spirit, the 'Guilty Parties' embroidery at the back hints at some edge.

Japanese brand Wacko Maria is in serious danger of transcending its cult under-the-radar status. Still, the collective prefers a subtler approach to branding. Rather than a logo, the embroidery on the reverse of this substantial cotton bomber spells out 'Drunkard's Dream - Rock Steady', a reference to the founders' other venture - a bar in downtown Tokyo. This piece wouldn't look out of place on one of the establishment's patrons, but the generous padding and the thick ribbed trims make it warm enough for winters across the pond, too.
