Kjeld Duits: @Linda B.: True. To set a high standard on JS, we are actually quite conservative with our descriptions. We follow regular journalistic standards, so if the reporter is not able to determine the brand from an actual label on the item, or a convincing reply from the interviewee, we add N/A to the description. We do make exceptions for specific items that are well-known entities, like the famous Vivienne Westwood skeleton ring. With this footwear clearly looking like Dr.Martens boots, I think we aren’t lowering our standards this time. Thanks again!
Linda B.: @Kjeld Lol, your welcome! I’m a HUGE fan of Dr.Martens!!! Pretty much if you see boots with a sole like this and yellow stitching around the sole, they’re Dr.Martens. :)
Kjeld Duits: @Lnda B.: I was wondering about that myself. Thanks! We’ll go with Dr.Martens, then. I have adjusted the captions.

Elisa: I have that top! Loves it!
Lactose Intoler-Art: @Kjeld- Oh wow! That’s really interesting! I’ve noticed on some street style sites when a brand is mentioned, some people have mentioned the shop staffs name. (For example, it might say skirt-“The Virgin Mary, Ari-chan”). That’s funny! Also…Not wanting to generalize really but have you heard of “electro-kei?” I saw someone interviewed, could have been a word they coined on their own, but I’ve seen some similarities between the style of this guy, wearers of “Candy” and “Wut Berlin.” Omoshiroi ne? haha
Kjeld Duits: @Lactose Intoler-Art: I think Dog doesn’t have its own brand, although perhaps there is a brand with the same name. Emi sometimes takes down the name of the shop instead of the brand, a very common practice in Japan actually. When I hear a name that I am not familiar with, I always have to ask the people I photograph several times if they perhaps mean the store where they bought the item. I have made it a habit to have people show me the actual labels on their clothing, but some items still slip through.
