Kamakura Shirts Blue OCBD/AmericanaPosted: July 16, 2014
I read about these shirts on Put This On and wanted one, though I wasn’t able to make it to the Kamakura store in New York until recently. It is amazing. You should really go. There are rows of neatly folded shirts in bright colors and many sizes. There is little else. Impeccably dressed young Japanese men wait with a tape measure, and a burning enthusiasm for Americana. It is like a neo-con’s wet dream– servile Asians with a deference to all things old and white. I also like luxury though, especially when it comes for $80.00 a shirt. Plus, I decided long ago that it was dishonest not to dress like the Ivy League parasite I am.
The shirts are cut very slim. Maybe even a little too slim. I always take mine off and change into a t-shirt when I get home. I never want to go outside in anything else.
