Drawing inspiration from the Japanese light novel series Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor, the long sleeve and short sleeve T-shirts are covered in manga references, co-branding and Kanji logography. Each piece sports FPAR’s signature “FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS” motif, a reference to Rokudenashi with “Union of the Rude People” typography, and dual arm “Rokudenashi Blues” and offshore TOKYO branding. Graphics from the manga series are littered throughout the capsule collection, seeing gangs, eyes and a boxing fight scene taken from Rokudenashi Blues sit alongside the myriad of text.
The short sleeve T-shirt retails for ¥ 7,560 JPY (approx. $70 USD) and the long sleeve retails for ¥ 9,180 (approx. $82 USD). Delivery starts from late May 2019, so head to zozotown’s website now to reserve your limited-edition T-shirt while stocks last.
