The founder of new Seattle clothing line Buki helped start Cutter & Buck and reinvigorated menswear for Tommy Bahama. But Buki doesn’t look back — in fact, it sees itself as the wave of the future.

Joey Rodolfo’s line is extremely composed in both design and color palette, letting its fabrics do most of the talking. Wanting to create technical clothing that is not athletic, or even athleisure, Rodolfo worked with a Japanese technology company to create what they call Kinoki-3.0. The fabric treatment provides stretch memory, body-heat regulation and moisture wicking — all in fabrics you’d want to wear to work or out on date night.

Check out the technology in person at Buki’s pop-up shop, opening Saturday and running through the end of the year, at 1826 Sixth Ave., Seattle.
