Ok, I figure you guys are definitely the crowd to ask..

I have an unhealthy obsession with ninjitsu (as well as some other japanese stuff like anime, manga, RPGs and pro wrestling...I'm a freaking nerd, sue me), as most men of uberosity typically do. Are there any "high-end" streetwear brands (perhaps coldrice can help me out here) that incorporate ninjas into their design? C'mon, decapitation on a shirt would be 7 kinds of awesome.

As awesome as ninjas are I'm afraid they've become rather cliche.

I should try that at work.

And if my boss gives me any lip, I'll kick him in the face.


So I take it there's no hope? I was looking for something similar to how skulls and crossbones have been infused with style/fashion/whatever but obviously not to the nth degree.. didn't expect Dior ninja embroidered jeans but c'mon, throw me a frickin' bone here people.

The main problem is that it is nearly impossible to convey the bad-assedness of a ninja on a t-shirt. Most of the ninja t-shirts you will see are "cute" cartoon ninjas, which are not really ninjas at all, only a mockery of ninjas and ninja culture. This is unacceptable. People have been killed for less. The only true ninja t-shirt that effectively captures the true essence of the ninja is a plain black shirt that conceals the knife in your waistband. The ninja is there, you just cant see it. If you look too close... fup! you get a knife in the eye. People who put a picture of a ninja on a white or light colored shirt have obviously never encountered a ninja. Ninjas don't hang out in bright areas with no cover. It is only a weak ass poser pretending to be a ninja. So if you ever see one of these shirts, let the person wearing it know that he has a weak ass poser ninja shirt on, just in case he/she isn't aware. And then...fup! Stab them in the eye... Sorry if that doesn't really answer your original question.

Here dude, instead of a shirt with ninjas on it I made you a ninja victim shirt.

It actually does as a friend and I had this discussion long ago - that a ninja would not wear anything indicating he was a ninja for the world to see.. because that would make it more difficult for him to kill people. This further confirms that for me. Thank you.

<goes to polish throwing knives>

Does Red Moon make throwing knife sheaths? C'MON!

Ok j, that is slightly freaking humorous - I'd buy it.

You do realize this site is about, mostly, clothes obsession.

Overcome the denial. Ain't nothin' not nerdy about spending a couple hours a day online reading about clothes.

i meant this specific thread about ninjas and ninja wear. And it's practicality in sneaking up on people and killing them...!

I'd sleep with both eyes open tonight, if you know what I mean.

I've watched a few of his podcasts - they're hit and miss.
After much deliberation, I've decided to cease my search for ninja clothing that is not intended for stealth. All input is appreciated.
