Lightning Clutch is made up of Japan’s finest heritage and counterculture publications, with titles including Lightning Magazine, Clutch Magazine, and Men’s File.
There’s a focus on vintage and reproduction clothing, and on the lifestyle that surrounds it. The magazines cover everything from fashion, music, watches, art, design, surfing, food, classic cars, and motorcycles. Of particular interest are Lightning Archives issues, which are the last word in documenting ‘Amikaji’ (American Casual style) and vintage military clothing.
Their issues focus on a specific subject and contain high-quality photography from some of the world’s most highly regarded collectors and collections. The magazines published under the Lightning Magazine umbrella are collectable pieces and are essential for any heritage and military clothing aficionado.
Serving as an authoritative reference point for all aspects of the vintage clothing scene, they’re perfect as a gift or as an attention-grabbing coffee table book.
