The brain-child of Ei Publishing’s Atsu Matsushima, editor of both Clutch and Lightning, the monthly magazine started in 2012 in response to a demand for more information on vintage collectors and their lifestyles. Clutch finds the people who push fashion and style forward and introduces them to the world. Moreover they have introduced many people in Europe and the USA to previously unobtainable Japanese brands that, unknown outside Japan, have been making superb replica, vintage inspired clothing and objects for many years. Clutch also focuses hard on custom bike culture and is the hub of a cultural exchange between the Japanese scenes and those in Europe and the USA. As an expert in all things in the realm of Japanese vintage Mr Matsushima is second to none and his Clutch magazine is fast becoming a cultural ambassador for the Japanese denim and work-wear industry. In short, if you want to see incredible and creative vintage lifestyles, amazing bikes and clothing – go get Clutch. Twice a year Clutch is twinned with Men’s File in the same cover in a super-large bumper issue.
