Cloth Road (クロスロオド?) is a manga written by Hideyuki Kurata (Read or Die) and illustrated by Okama. Cloth Road is currently 11 volumes in length in Japan. The last chapter of the series ran in the June issue of the monthly manga magazine Ultra Jump.
The premise of Cloth Road is that with the increased miniaturization of computer technology, it becomes possible to integrate computers into clothing, creating clothes which are manipulatable by their wearers. Among other effects on society, this greatly increases the influence of clothing brands, and leads to the development of "War King", an event which mixes elements of a fashion show and a duel, with the models using clothes to fight one another.
