Kobayashi Setsumasa founded his first label General Research in 1993. In 2006 Satsumasa changed the name to Mountain Research which reflects his love of the outdoors and creative research method and philosophy. Each season, he heads to the mountains to clear his head and draw inspiration and direction for the new season ahead. Consistently utilitarian, Mountain Research is inspired by military, naval, mountaineering wear and workwear.
