Staying Warm, Looking Deadly: Modern Samurai Jackets

October 12, 2016

These are the modern Haori jackets sold by Tokyo-based clothing store Trove. They cost around $285 and are made to resemble the jackets worn by samurais over their armor during the Sengoku Period between 1467-1603. And now I'm going to wear one during the Shitass Period of 2016 while swinging my samurai sword in the yard. My neighbors will probably think I'm weird but I don't care because they're all a bunch of jerks anyway. "They're the jerks? You let your dog shit in their yards and don't pick it up." That's not my dog, that's a stray. We just hang out sometimes and chase squirrels together.

Keep going for several more styles, I also want the hakama pants in the last photo. And the New Balances.

Thanks to Christina, who also thinks I'd make a great geisha.

    even if gw does let his dog shit in their yards and not pick it up at least he isn't letting his cat out to murder helpless creatures in your yard and leave them to rot. it doesn't even kill em right so they're just dragging the upper half of their body in circles. it's horrible :(

    Looks like crap without the armor underneath. Anything looks better with armor. http://i.imgur.com/lZcG3hA.jpg

    when will fashion designers learn that all we really want is a kickass suit of armor?

    Kinda looks like a posh-ish homeless person. I think it's the New Balance shoes that give it the vagrant flavor.
