He then launched a digital monthly publication, Rough UK, a style, arts and culture digital platform.

In 2015, the Tokyo James fashion brand was born, crafted for “modern men who want simplicity with an edge.” As the brand has grown, the designer continues to put an emphasis on traditional techniques and clean lines, as well as silhouettes that maintain consistency and lend to wearability.
