Apparel from Japan

Postby maichan » Thu Dec 08, 2016 21:31 +0000

Clothing from Japan... show us your apparel, traditional and non-traditional - t-shirts, socks, kimono, yukata, geta, etc...

I'd like to start by showing some of the t-shirts I have from Japan... These all come from Uniqlo http://www.uniqlo.com/jp/
I bought these at least 8 or 9 years ago. Uniqlo usually comes out with new themes and designs every year. These were mostly having to do with old time businesses.

We think this one is for Hoshi Onsen.

Those are some cool shirts! I don't really need even more t-shirts, but I just might be tempted anyway... :o

Here's one I got on my last trip to Japan... I thinks it's been at least 3 years now. I wasn't able to go back to Japan the past few years because of my dad's health.
As the previous t-shirts, it comes from Uniqlo. This one is full of trains... for the densha otaku in me.

I was thinking this layout might look good with death skulls :roll:

That might be difficult. Also, the designs and themes are constantly changing. Everything I've shown so far could be considered "out of print"
I also have some Snoopy shirts, and Uniqlo has a full line of Disney themed shirts, including Marvel and Star Wars.

Here is a page with the various current UT line - http://www.uniqlo.com/jp/store/feature/uq/ut/men/
