    this thread is pretty much dead, wich I don't mind too much, glad the DJ-hype is over...

    but I'm wondering, did anyone buy the Kurashikan shirt?
    I just got mine today and this is something else, blew me out my chair...

    it feels so thick and heavy, has a really nice 'texture' to it and a nice color and details
    this Kurashikan is just as inspiring as denim is, also, nice bonus, the sticker that is made out of Ghost's drawing of DJ-san...

    pictures will follow tomorrow ;-)

    I also got the shirt Tiro. I was hesitant at first, but I am glad that I did get it. It is like nothing I have ever owned. It is hard to explain.

    tell me bout it, I'm still not sure if I should consider this a shirt or a jacket...
    it'll soften up after a wash tho, I guess...

    I soaked my western shirt recently with my skulls. It definitely made it a lot easier to wear since it drapes better now.

    I soaked mine way early on, the fit and feel of it is a lot better and is breaking in nicely.

    It fits you good, Tiro! :)

    To be honest, I'm glad to hear that the shirt is thick than you imagined because I wanted to wear it as a jacket for a bit chilly day.
    And I'm glad I ordered one size bigger than my actual size..... :)

    thanks sensei :-D I think it'll look even better when it's been washed an ironed cause now it's pretty much 'oddly' shaped by the folds in it...
    well, I'll see what it does, if it softens and drapes better, it might be functional as a shirt, but as it is now, it's def. a nice alternative for a denim jacket...

    That is a sick looking shirt Tiro! You can almost feel the quality just by looking at the pics.

    Soaking doesn't get rid of the starch that much if you don't agitate the fabric -like hand washing.

    qouted for truth, washing is much more effective for starch removal
