When a trademark dispute ended the brand Hoggs, designer Keizo Shimizu introduced Needles as an extension of the store Nepenthes; a second chance at an in-house line essentially. Since 1988, Needles has blended Americana, military and sportswear influences with Japanese textiles to create products both familiar and unique. The brand is particularly known for its 7 Cut Flannel shirts and track pants. In 2018, the brand collaborated with AWGE on a collection of tracksuits.
