JQ is the frontman for Nulbarich, a band that has made a name for itself over the past few years as the unique Japanese music genre known as "city pop" has become increasingly popular. In addition to his own band that he produces for, JQ is also active as a singer-songwriter, providing music for some of Japan's leading artists and producing music for commercials. He is currently based in Los Angeles and is expanding his activities from Japan to the world. JQ has many fans both in Japan and abroad, but the reason why he has gained so many followers is not only because of the quality of his music, but also because of his excellent fashion sense. The most important thing for him when choosing his clothes is the culture behind the brand, and from there he considers the balance between the impact of the look, the material, and comfort. All of these elements, he says, are packed into C.P. COMPANY’s clothing.
“Many brands focus too much on silhouette, and comfort often becomes an afterthought. However C.P. COMPANY’s clothes strikes an amazing balance between comfort, aggressive silhouettes, and details. The J-MESH item I am wearing today has a strong visual impact with its small details, aggressive silhouette, and dyeing method, and yet it feels like a second skin that I’ve been wearing for years. Even though the brand has been in business for about 50 years, I think this represents their "taste" that is born from their pursuit of technology and innovation. The way you listen to music changes when you have a clearer understanding of the culture and background, and I feel that fashion is no different. Understanding the history and the culture behind the clothing makes me feel that I am wearing that culture, and that feeling to me is very important.”
