The Otokodate were gangs of tough and fearless peacekeepers, originally formed to protect ordinary townsfolk against the abuse of lawless low-ranking samurai groups.
These heroic outlaws made their living from gambling and were reckless both in love and in combat.
Sticking up for the little guy, the Otokodate quickly became heroes of the commoners, protecting their neighbourhoods from the injustices of the powerful.
For Autumn/Winter 2017, EDWIN pay homage to the Japanese brotherhood with the Otokodate Print Tee.
