The wicked style

Friday, April 28, 2006

I'm in Japan, in the small town of Hokota, about 100 miles north of Tokyo. I'm here visiting a friend who works as an English teacher. She had to attend a work function this afternoon so I was left to my own devices. I wandered around the town, looking at the none-too-plentiful sights. After walking around the main street, and the nearby bridge (with Gaudi style mosiacs), I went to a shopping mall (with 3 shops) where I discovered the basics of Japanese fashion.

The highlight of the underwear section were a pair of shocking pink boxer briefs and a pair of cornflower blue boxers with a deeper blue suedette pouch. Fancy!

Japanese clothesI also discovered this jacket - with 2 zips! And these trousers - with two waistbands! Japanese fashion is amazing!

But I stopped short of buying the boiler suit. In fact, I didn't buy any of these as if this is just what a small-town department store can offer, I'll be buying like crazy when we get to Tokyo and Harajuku.
