    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.

    Haha, I searched Google for "ninja shirt" and this is the first thing that came up. You don't need a shirt with a ninja on it, if you just walk around wearing this all day...

    I should try that at work.

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

    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.

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