The Red Drizzler

While on my recent trip to Japan for IVY PREPSTER I came across Kakimoto Eiichi (Kaki) relaxing on a beautiful day in the Harajuku area of Japan.  His Red Vintage Drizzler caught my eye along w/ his black & white spectator wing tips.  I really loved his look w/ the beret down to the sachel to the off white Lee Westerner Jeans.  Thanks Kaki for being a great sport!
