The American architect Louis Sullivan once made a statement. “Form Follows Function.” What we strive for is the “Fabricate individual function”
as we don’t design through decorativeness, but device forms through personalities, imagining to reach new realizations and discoveries.
Our brand name O8 derives from the phrase in Go, “Okame Hachimoku,” which means a third party can determine the pros and cons of matters better than the players.
We develop craftsmanship that suits various users using the expertise cultivated over the history that has continued for over 100 years.

SWIPE HEAD

OH

Round or square face type.
Because the head is large, wearing a hat without volume will make a
face look bigger. For this reason, we designed the panel with volume
and the brim round and wide.

U

A face type with a short height from the eye line to the top of the head.
Due to the short height of the head, the depth of the hat often does not
fit. The height and volume of the panel are adjusted, and the brim is
designed to be short and stiff.

Y

A face type with the crown of the head protrudes and tapers toward
the chin. Selecting a hat to match the crown of the head will make the
head look bigger, so we designed a hat with less volume on the sides
and a shorter and softer brim.

I

Thin and long face type. Because of the small head and narrow face,
wearing a tall hat will make the whole face look longer, so we designed
the panel to be shallower and the brim to be sharper in impression.
