The Shogun robe is limited edition. Only 30 are being made and each will go for about $500.
â€œShogunâ€ is the name of the collaboration between young, innovative design studio Form Us With Love and prestige manufacturer of cotton terry, PellevÃ¤vare. The result is a limited edition of 30 exclusive robes of terry strategically reinforced with cotton canvas. â€œThe inspiration derives from the Japanese medieval warriors and their protective outfits. We wanted the user to feel like a general, stepping out of bed, putting on his weekend uniform and start plotting strategies for the day.
I managed to ninja my way into the warehouse and steal one, and I'd like to think I look better than that pasty Martin Sheen lookalike in the picture. The robe definitely helps me get in the mood to "start plotting strategies for the day". This morning I woke up, planned a sneak attack on a bunch of pancakes, and utterly destroyed them. Then I proceeded to prepare for a much more difficult battle -- a platoon of Wild Turkey. I'm halfway through and I'm afraid I'm losing the fight. I can't see straight anymore and I think I cut myself with a steak knife trying to stab the bottle.
Several more closeups of the robe after the jump.
