TOKYO ZUBON

ABOUT

『ズボン』とは日本独自の呼び名である。

仏語『jupon』= ペチコート。アラビア語『djubba』= 男性が身にまとうゆったりとした衣服。英語『trousers』『pants』と同義語。日本では幕末、大久保誠知が「ずぼんと足に入る」と言ったことから『ズボン』となったとする説もあるが、この語が成立した後に生まれた洒落である。
『ズボン』日本人であれば一度は聞いたことがあるこの呼称、聞けば聞くほど不思議な言葉である。この当たり前で、ありきたりな言葉の意味はファッションに必要不可欠。『ズボン』。なんとも日本らしい言葉遊びの効いた愛称だ。ファッションとは、老若男女ともに着飾り、TPOにあわせた装いをすることだが、それ以前にファッションとは、楽しいことである。西暦2016、ライフスタイル=ファッションと考える。
地球上で生活するすべての人々に、最適で最高の『ZUBON』をまじめに提供いたします。

"Zubon" is certainly a very unique Japanese name.

In French, "jupon" is a petticoat. In Arabic, "djubba" is a loose garment worn by men. In English, the synonyms "trousers" and "pants" are commonly used. In Japan, some say that the name "zubon" originates from Seiji Okubo, from the end of the Edo era, describing them as a garment that you slide into with a "zubon" sound; however, this play-on-words actually came after the name had become established.
Every Japanese person has heard of the word "zubon" at least once in their lives. And the more people hear it, the more wondrous it becomes. So it stands to reason that nowadays this common word has an essential meaning in fashion. "zubon" is a pet name that really encompasses Japanese wordplay. Fashion dresses men and women of all ages, but fashion is not only about dressing people according to a particular time, place, and occasion, but above all it is about having fun. Now in the year of 2016, we believe that lifestyle = fashion.
Going forward, we shall focus on bringing the best and most suitable "zubon" to all the people living around the world.
