So I’m in my house, watching the latest episode of my favorite show, Lost, and it’s all over the place. The weather is beautiful, the walls are clean, and all the people are pretty nice… but it’s all wrong.
And this is a good thing, because it makes us want to look really good. So when we go to look for the perfect outfit, we have to find the wrong one.
In Japan, there is such a thing as a “street fashion punk” person. These are the “cool kids’ fashion,” which is a term used to describe people who are part of a subculture whose purpose is to wear the latest fashions and styles. Japan’s fashion is influenced by the music of the 60’s and 70’s with such artists as Guns N’ Roses, Madonna, and Marilyn Manson.
Here in the US, the street fashion punk is the cool kid who is wearing a suit because he couldn’t get one of the regular ones that fit. His “suit” is a really cool outfit that is way over his head and just fits him. Here in Japan, this is a term used for someone who looks like a guy but is really really short and has acne. Their clothing, including a small backpack, can be a bit on the tight side.
The main game in Deathloop is also about to get on a plane to Japan. Let’s say we want to start playing the game, but for two weeks we’ll be making a trip to Japan, then going around the world in the next two weeks, and then going to Italy next week. As it turns out the two weeks of travel are a lot of fun.
The game has been around the past 10 years, and it’s been pretty much a constant. It’s good fun to be on a plane, having fun with a lot of different friends, especially on stage. The game has been around the past 10 years, but it’s been a bit of a fluke for us. We’re not actually in Japan anymore, but now we can play the game.
Not in Japan. We just finished our trip, and then we have a couple of weeks to go back. We’re not going to Japan next week, and we’re not going to Italy next week. We’re taking off to the Netherlands next week, and then we’ll be back in Japan before the end of October. We’ll actually be in Japan for about two months, and then we’ll be in the Netherlands for about a month.
The problem with a trip to Japan is the fact that, well, everything is so expensive. Although there is a high quality of life in Japan, the high prices make it a hard sell. Not to mention the fact that the Japanese are pretty slow in the use of Western clothing and accessories.
I’m sure you could get a decent suit made there for less than $500. You’d just have to keep it that way.
If you want to get your Japanese wardrobe more in order, I think you could look to the more popular Japanese street fashion punk culture. The fashion punk movement started in the mid-eighties. Then it morphed into a broader style which eventually became known as “streetwear” which is the same thing as fashion punk. But that style has made its way across to the west. The street-style punk movement is based on the idea of “dudes wear their own clothes.
