■ About the author
Rintaro Tanaka Rin Tanaka Born in Yokohama. At the age of 20, he entered the world of magazines as a critic of black music. After graduating from university, he worked at an advertising agency for four years before moving to San Clemente, California in 1998. Since then, I have been spending my days flying around the world with my camera. In 2003, he started self-publishing "My Freedamn". Released worldwide, each issue sells 10,000 copies, which is unusual for an expensive book.
The rock'n'roll fashion that was born in the United States in the 50's will be featured in the next two works, "My Freedamn! 6". First of all, "My Freedamn! 5" this time is a special feature that explores the "roots of rock'n'roll fashion" before Elvis Presley appeared. Introducing rare embroidered sportswear, cowboy fashion Western shirts that continued until the early 1950s, pre-war denim fashion such as Levi's and Montgomery Ward, and the world's first huge studded belt. In addition, 17 skull jackets, which are famous as the “ultimate second-hand clothes”, are gathered together in the “bad fashion” that appeared during the Korean War. Bike fashion before the movie "Rogue" includes leather togs, Peters, rare pre-war jackets, and engineer boots. At the same time, we will introduce plenty of vintage Mexican rings, whose prices have skyrocketed in the used clothing market these days.
