They’re Grrrreat!

I’ve never bought anything from A Bathing Ape before, but their collaboration with the Hanshin Tigers definitely has me wishing I could visit the Umeda Hankyu store later this month, when an exclusive collection of co-branded goods will be released there. The Hanshin Tigers are one of Japan’s oldest, best known and most popular teams, playing in the Central League. The word “Hanshin” combines kanji (Chinese characters) from the names of Osaka and it’s neighbor city Kobe, thus encapsulating both cities, and the team is located pretty much in the center of the two, at Nishinomiya. I was lucky enough to go to high school in Kobe, and spent lots of time in Osaka too… Visit Freshness for tons of preview pics.
