    It is pretty funny. Of course, if we printed a design mocking Japanese in a similar stereotypical way, it wouldn't go over too well.

    Mockery of Japanese people is pretty common... so I'd say were even.

    Oh, one last thing. McDonald's is *huge* in Japan. I wouldn't be surprised if the D'aRtisan shirt was just mocking McDonald's in general, not necessarily American.

    Just a heads-up in case anyone is interested. My brand new Pure Blue Japan AI-001's are for sale in the buying and selling forum. A bunch of pictures too. Just didn't fit. Here's the link: http://styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=15804

    That d'Artisan shirt is priceless! Where'd you find it? I'm searching on rakuten to see for myself and have a bit of a chuckle. [​IMG]

    i may have to take advantage of mr cxr... need to think it over a bit...


    Woah... that IS nice, I don't think I can pull it off though (yes, I am a boring old codger). WHat is it, linen, cotton, synthetic?

    Does anyone know anything about the fit of Alfredo Bannister shoes? Do they run big, small, normal? I'm looking at these in particular.

    What size shirt did you get? And what do you normally wear in AA?
    I know someone going to Hong Kong, so I may have them pick me up a SD shirt at Take 5.

    Some more pig porn:

    Medium, generally. I've only worn pre-printed AA shirts I've gotten as freebies, but I imagine they're not much different than the retail ones. These are both mediums, the raglan fits nice, the tee is slightly smaller than Im used to but not bad assuming I don't wash it. I'm 5'10 fyi

    hey guys, yes i'm on vacation now. sorry about the days before- my wireless dropped and it was a pain in the ass to get internet access- and try to answer emails at the internet cafe as i couldn't pull up my price list. i should be good in a week. i'll move to osaka probably but doing my service should be fine from there...
