One of the biggest anticipated collaborations on the Kitmeout forum has been the potential for Hidehiko Yamane and Martin Ksohoh to unite their Evisu and Red Monkey brands in a fashion extravaganza. As we all know Martin Ksohoh spent many years working with Evisu before launching the Red Monkey Company brand, so the history and affinity is certainly there for a partnership. Is it time for fan action? Let’s urge both companies to create a small collection by emailing them both with our ideas.

Another new MKWS Worker Style Denim dropped last week. They are all Made in Japan using premium 14oz Unwashed BLACK SUGAR Salvage Denim. BLACK SUGAR is a type of cotton thread which is had been not bleached or dyed, so the color is darker and more solid than INDIGO.

The inner layer at the waist & bottoms come with printed Tsunami Wave design which is visible and cool when you roll up your denim.

Kitmeout has received an exclusive sneek preview of the forthcoming Red Monkey Company denim and apparel collection.
Rumour has it there will be both an evolution of the world-renowned and widely emulated Red Monkey style in addition to a significant deviation from tradition resulting in a collection of innovative and mind-blowing designs.
Martin Ksohoh continues to be the most innovative fashion designer in Hong Kong x China,
building on his unrivaled experience and deep understanding of Eastern fashion and tradition, and his open-armed exposure to Western style and culture – SOHO HK!
Here are a few shots taken from the Fashion Takeover Red Monkey Fashionshow courtesy of G3 jewelery. The show featured a number of Martin Ksohoh’s exclusive Red Monkey denim designs and caused a stir with the ladies in the audience.
In 2002, Martin began working with engineered cotton harvested from a farm in china. The unique yellow fibre creates a very special hand feel and colour shade when woven and dyed with the indigo rope dying method. As demonstrated by the institute lepine in paris more than a decade ago, this cotton fibre allowed new processing methods to be done that were not harmful to the environment and also introduced a raw denim that retained the characteristics of rawness on the outside while the inner surface is plush, smooth and unlike any other raw jeans found in the market place.

Kitmeout user shares 2 year old well worn RMC jeans. Notice the red logo on the leather patch. Authentic RMC only have a red logo. This red logo is a good identifier as a number of fakes have black or blue logos. The other way to distinguish real from fake is a lot of fakes just have RMC in the logo and are missing the all important Martin Ksohoh beneath the RMC which is probably because the fakers find it too expensive and difficult to print the small letters on the leather patch.
It’s official — Red Monkey Company changes nameÂ to RMC Martin Ksohoh. To help prevent any confsuion all Red Monkey Company jeans are officially branded RMC Martin Ksohoh. Kitmeout has been reliably informed that any jeans branded RED MONKEY COMPANY after 2005 are fakes. Martin Koshoh only made limited runs of 300 per style of RED MONKEY COMPANY jeans in 2005 and since 2006 has branded all his denim and apparel RMC Martin Ksohoh and this is now the official brand name. So beware of any post 2005 jeans branded RED MONKEY COMPANY – They’re fakes!
