Yeah I wanted it too but yeah missing the BSPs etc.

If I met Tet I'd probably punch him in the face for letting skatething go 13 years ago and ruining the brand. I saw him in the distance in Aoyama once. I was lining up at Black Flag and he rolled up on his motorcycle 200 metres up the line and ran into the store then ran out again.

My friend (Uparmoured from 5thD) met him in Black Flag once. Said he was kinda tall and goofy and a nice guy, with decent Engrish.

I met Magara this year. Was the highlight of my whole life. HE's a boss. He hooked me up with free CDs from his stash in the back of A1 Store. What a dude. Spoke no English whatsoever, but I speak Jap so it was cool. He told me Masterpiece brand is never coming back though Sad

But you're not raving about Cav Empt (it's a bit shit though)
might be that Tet and skatething moved on from the 90's and you stayed : )

Yeah Shin and Tet by themselves are shit. When combined they form like Voltron and Get deep like Navy SEALS

I mean Helly Hansen collab? Really? I had a Helly Hansen windbreaker when I was 14. I hated it so much and was so glad when I could finally get real brands like Taps, Supreme and Bape. Starter collab I respected, starter was cool because it was official uniform gear for a lot of sports in the US in the 90s, which is a base concept of w)taps. Helly Hansen is so random..their version of the BUDS-V bouancy vest is an obomination. Although the internal collar IS a nice touch. But the pocket and HH branding fuck it up beyond all recognition. FUBAR.

depends on your style

I guarantee you Japs shorter than you were wearing this shit in Lima circa 2001

Perfect combo with same era black BDUs and a nice pair of roughout boots

MVP did nice MIJ ones with the label outside. Could probably get cheap if you hunt.

For my money I get the 100% wool current issue USGI watch caps off ebay. U seen the red cross made WW2 USN cap on ebay currently for like $500 btw?..
