Shinya Hasegawa, founder of Battenwear is a Japan to New York transplant having spent four years working under Daiki Suzuki, designer of Engineered Garments, takes his inspiration from the active wear of the 1980’s. With most pieces being made within walking distance from their studio, Shinya’s attention to detail can’t be denied. Battenwear combines the details of form and function with the modern appeal of a more slimmed down, sportier take on vintage classics.
