NEXUSVII VLACK Vintage | Skull Ashtray

NEXUSVII was one the first brands that I gravitated towards when I started working at HAVEN. Tomohiro Konno’s take on classic military garb were, and still are heavily rooted in contemporary functionality, ergonomic design and quality craftsmanship. Though they’ve experienced a lull period in recent years, the brand still remains as one of the more unique labels that came out of the Ura-Hara movement. On my most recent trip to Tokyo I had the chance to visit their store in Shibuya; a modest sized space carved from concrete sandwiched in between a busy coffee stand and residential apartment building. What caught my attention was their curated display of vintage objects and ephemera, and this skull ashtray in particular. The staff wasn’t sure where it was sourced from but had told me that they had acquired a set of 3 which were allocated to their other stores in Chiba and Kanagawa. I regret passing on this purchase now, but you might still have some luck acquiring them online here.
