The history of WTAPS began in 1993. Tetsu Nishiyama, known simply as Tet, established his first brand - 40% Against Rights in Tokyo at the beginning of the Harajuku Ura-Hara movement.

A few years later in 1996 Tet re-emerged with his new line WTAPS (Pronounced Double Taps) based heavily on military stylings and the outdoors. Tet has been creative director of Black Flag, an a multi brand shop in Aoyama, Tokyo and de-facto WTAPS store. Now known as the GIP store, the WTAPS flagship is located in Shibuya, Tokyo.

WTAPS products are designed according to a philosophy based on the work of traditional Japanese carpenters called 'Miya-Daiku' who are highly skilled workers known for making full use of each piece of wood. WTAPS is widely recognised for its collaborations with brands including Supreme, Stussy and Vans. Most recently Tet has launched new lifestyle brand DESCENDENT.
