Samurai Armor Hoodies Are The Latest Fashion Trend
Samurai armor hoodies are the latest fashion trend coming straight from, you’ve guessed it, Japan! Japanese designers at Tokyo Otaku Mode created the most awesome culturally-inspired clothes possible and want to fund their Samurai fashion line via IndieGoGo.
Their online crowdfunding campaign already raised over $70,000, meaning that we’ll be seeing a lot of wicked samurai armor hoodies on the streets in the very near future.
“The inspiration for this hoodie came to us a few years ago, when we saw an article on the web featuring a hoodie based on a western suit of armor. We thought how come there isn’t one based on traditional Japanese armor?” the designers wrote on IndieGoGo.
“We wanted one so badly that we searched all over the internet, but apparently such apparel did not exist in Japan. If it doesn’t exist, why not bring it into existence?” they said.
After 2 years since they first thought about the concept, their idea is becoming a reality with the help of samurai enthusiasts from all over the world. The samurai hoodies come in three different colors: red, white and black. You can also choose to add your own ‘tatemono’ crests, as the front decoration of your hoodie.
The price of these hoodies were $270 for Early Birds, but they have already been sold out. If you want to get your body inside a samurai uniform, you’d better act fast and get yours for $320 because they’re selling like hot chocolate on a cold day.
