March's final issue ^^


* good music SOULS pants (by SOULSmania)
link: http://soulsmania.com/newarrival/new10.html
price: 9345yen

SOULSmania is a famous brand among funk and soul admirers in Japan. All logos and models are usually based in late 70's black culture.
The item Tsuyoshi is wearing are the sweater pants from last year collection. It's written "GOOD MUSIC" in the butt. XD
The remake for this year's collection is a little bid different, with different colors, but the idea is pretty much the same.
If I had money, I would buy one too XD

* stripes jacket (by adidas)
link: http://page9.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k112102037
price: 33000yen

Damn I hate old clothes cos they're always out of the official sites, then there's only auctions left to get them -_- Anyway, this jacket is a classic, isn't? So cute! But so expensive...

* classic vintage 3 leaf logo t-shirt (by adidas)
link: -
price: 14000yen (average)

You might think "Oh. that usual t-shirt. that's so... common."
But behind every single model, there is always a story to tell.

A curious fact is that Run DMC started to use the 3 leafs logo adidas back in 1980's, since then, it became a classic!
It was because of Run DMC that adidas is today famous as it is. The rapper also turned popular their sneakers!
This is a classic 80's vintage golden-metalic model that was reissued back in 2007.

* Tref Tee ObyO (by adidas originals by originals)
link: http://www.styles-ad.jp/
price: 4095yen

another important point is that "adidas Originals" is the reissued models of adidas when they were using the "trefoil" as their logo from 1972-1996.

If I had to pick the greatest store in this world... it would be Styles (linked up there).
This is the most amazing store ever. They love adidas so much, and you find unique things over there.
By the way, if i'm not wrong, Tsuyoshi has been there also, in one of his Shindoi's. If you have time, check their homepage, it's pretty nice!!

* Skull Funk t-shir (by BEAMSSouls)
link: http://www.moderntimes-co.net/SHOP/m2914.html
price: 4410yen

Used on Gekkan Kaze to Rock photoshoot back in 2007.
It's interesting to see how Tsuyoshi also tries to express himself not only through music, but also through his clothes, that's a fact. XD


* MOTOWN Block T-Shirt
link: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RETRO-T-SHIRT-motown
price: US$15 (average)

Unfortunely I couldn't find exactly the same model, I believe Tsuyoshi made this one by himself using silkscreen (we all know he loves to make his own t-shirts and tanktops)

Motown Records is a famous label of Funk, Hip Hop and Soul music.
It is REALLY famous. That label was responsable of big names like Michael Jackson, The Supremes, Stevie Wonder and others.
This year, they're celebrating their 50th anniversary!
and to start a good week, found these ones a couple of days ago (not tsuyoshi related, though):

* Nike Terminator Premium QS
link: http://cgi.ebay.com/Nike-Wmns-Terminator-High-Premium-QS
price: US$130 (average)

What do you think of it? Would you wear it?
It has a funky aura... lol

The Nike Terminator was the first real attempt that Nike had into the basketball world. When Michael Jordan first signed the now legendary Nike shoe deal back in 1985 Jordan first wore the Nike Terminator and then came out with the Air Jordan 1, which borrowed a lot of elements from the Nike Terminator.

Since then the Nike Terminator has taken on many different variations and editions.

Well, this is it! Did you like it? (am I doing right? XD lol) ^^

O god... I would LOOOVE to have that adidas-jacket. *_*

And those nike terminators are extremely stylish. The colour's awesome.
Lol. First I wanted to write 'BUT THEY'RE SO EXPENSIVE'... but I actually own shoes that cost approximately the same, so... xD

Thanks for doing this by the way!
I can only imagine how hard it must be to find stuff Tsuyo wears...
Izukuraizukura on March 29th, 2009 09:39 pm (UTC)
I wish I had the money & confidence to wear some of this stuff. xD
Korrumkorrrum on March 29th, 2009 10:24 pm (UTC)
The stripes jacket looks so cool. ^^

Alone those clothes are not so special. But the way Tsuyoshi combines them with other clothes, that makes his style truly unique.
Hikariihikabunny on March 29th, 2009 10:34 pm (UTC)
Man, it's so amazing how you can go through his clothes like that. It's really impressive and this is really amusing. Thanks. XD

You're really resourceful with fashion sites...hehe I never even heard of those sites too. ANd does Tsuyoshi loves adidas???

And thanks for the 2nd issue!
☆☆☆: KinKi: Tsuyoshi Guitarneocopasetic on March 30th, 2009 02:41 am (UTC)
I've been waiting for this post, seriously! I love all of his clothes and now, thanks to you, I can make a list of my faves and buy them when I'm financially able!

ALSO! Kudos for the throwback to Run DMC!!! Because Run DMC, I wore nothing but Adidas for YEARS! I have my same classic pair for six years now. Adidas is really my favorite big brand, for sure!

I'm deff planning on getting the Nikes! They're pretty rad, but I have small feet, even for a girl... we'll see, I guess!

Thanks as always, and keep up the good work! I LOVE your posts!

XD This has been awesome to read. Looking forward to the next issue! *_* That skull funk shirt is always a temptation when poking around auctions, but I guess it would be pointless for me since I'm not a real fan of funk. Just Endli FUN9 XD.
akani  304: jfcakani304 on March 30th, 2009 11:40 pm (UTC)

This was great again!
Can you perhaps tell me where I can find a moderntimes shop? I'm sure it is on teh page somewhere, but I'm not finding anything I can read...
RinRin Live Action~honeyswallow on March 30th, 2009 07:56 pm (UTC)
Ah, found it xp Stupid me, it's in Takasaki. Argh, what a pity, that's too far xD
akani  304akani304 on March 30th, 2009 11:39 pm (UTC)
lolz XD

do you live in jp? ^^
RinRin Live Action~honeyswallow on March 31st, 2009 10:27 am (UTC)
Nah~, but your posts came at the right time, I'll be going there for holiday in two weeks xDD I won't have time to go up all the way to Gunma, that's why it's too far.
akani  304akani304 on March 31st, 2009 05:41 pm (UTC)
if you have time, go check NUDE TRUMP's vintage shop, in Shibuya!
It's REEEEALLY cool XD and Tsuyoshi loves that store...! XD
RinRin Live Action~: Eita - wheee manhoneyswallow on March 31st, 2009 06:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the tip. Dude, I just googled it and it seems a lot of people who know what they're talking about recommend it xD
akani  304akani304 on March 31st, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)

it rocks.
Marianameni on March 31st, 2009 02:39 pm (UTC)
Starting a Tsuyo fashon corner is an absolutely awsome idea (definate add). It would be absolytely awsome if you found some of his hats too @.@ Anyway, great job, awsome idea. i'll definetely read ^^
akani  304akani304 on April 12th, 2009 09:19 pm (UTC)
thank you ^^
Γειγαreikoistic on March 31st, 2009 02:46 pm (UTC)
This is so cool. It makes me feel like buying a few of those Adidas shirts now. XP
akani  304akani304 on April 12th, 2009 09:19 pm (UTC)
XDD me too!!
jandethjandeth on April 1st, 2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
btw, there's a socks shop in Harajuku, Takeshita Dori called Mighty Soxer, you probably know it. It's the first socks shop at the beginning of Takeshita Dori. Tsuyoshi bought a pair of toe socks from there, during his private time.

If I remember correctly it was the socks from the top row, left side

*random, useless fact*
akani  304akani304 on April 1st, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC)
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa are you serious?? I REMEMBER THAT SHOP XD LOL
my friend would take me there every day to buy new socks (and I would end up buying more leggings XDD)

but i totally thought it was a girls-socks only o_____________O
weird XDDDDD
jandethjandeth on April 1st, 2009 05:03 pm (UTC)
it's kind of unisex, but I think mostly girls buy socks form there, but really dunno.

I think it was sometime during last spring, before May that he bought those, since those were still on sale when I went there last year May and heard the story from a friend who works in that shop, though she doesn't work there anymore, but anyway.
*I still might remember wrong how the socks looked like, since it was last year, but I'm almost positive it was those socks, colour I'm not sure, but I think one of the pairs was gray-ish*

MAS ISSO CUSTA MAIS QUE DO QUE A MINHA BUNDA (Ou do que eu pagaria por um tênis no meu atual estado econômico xD).
Za Boom!gummykid on April 2nd, 2009 12:59 am (UTC)
Sorry I didn't comment sooner. This is a great idea, fun to look at the pics and love the little history lessons too. (For me it's like nostalgia since I remember the 80s stuff from the first time around. XD) Yes the sneakers are seriously cute - good luck grabbing a pair!
