Anna Sui x Leg Resource Hosiery Fall/Winter 2010...
Anna Sui is huge in Japan and her style fits right in at home with a lot of Japanese trends. However, her stuff is quite expensive, so getting a taste of it in your wardrobe isn’t the easiest. That’s set to change however, as Anna Sui is collaborating with Leg Resource for a line of hosiery that showcases the designer’s unique flare for prints and colour. The collection will...
Buffalo Bobs Triple Lucky Bag -- 21,000円
If this is your style, it’s a pretty good deal. Currently Buffalo Bobs has a collaboration going on with two other brands and they’re offering six items for 21,000円. This won’t be in stock for long, so get it while you can here.
These aren't "visual", they're shit.
Do you wear these? If so, stop it. What did your legs ever do to you? I’ve seen more than a handful of misguided visual-kei fans wearing stuff like this. I will say this as someone who wore these roughly five years ago: they are awful. If you think these are visual kei, you have not seen what a visual-kei band looks like since the early 1990’s. Because this is what they look...
Buffalo Bobs Engineer Boots
I have been trying to buy these kickass boots for roughly two months now. Sadly, they only exist in sizes 41 and 43, and I’ve never seen the 43 in stock. If you’re a size 41, you’re in luck: they’re available right now for 19,950円 at Marui or the official Buffalo Bobs Rakuten store.
Sleeveless hoodies are great for the summer; the air is able to circulate around your arms like a tank-top, but the hood gives a visual detail that prevents it from being boring when worn alone. You can also throw them under a jacket on a warm, rainy day. Rider-style Sleeveless Hoodie by Custom Culture. 9,975円 at Marui. Leopard Print Sleeveless Hoodie by Tornado Mart. 13,440円 at Marui. I...
Brand Focus: Tornado Mart (トルネードマート)
Brand Focus is a recurring feature in which we provide an overview of a single clothing brand. Anyone who knows me knows I am a Tornado Mart addict. As in, roughly 80% of my wardrobe comes from them. It was a no-brainer to do my first Brand Focus on them. Founded in 1993 as the first brand under parent company Spic International (lol), Tornado Mart is a men’s brand made famous by...
Mail Order Japan →
Mail Order Japan is a Japanese shopping proxy (a service that buys items you can’t order yourself) that I’ve been using for 8 years. It’s run by an awesome guy named Azuma (what a sick name; I have verified this is his real name). They have a live bidding system for Yahoo! Japan Auctions and you can send them a request for any other Japanese web shop and they will order it for...
Welcome to HA·RA·JU·JU!
Welcome to HA·RA·JU·JU, an experiment in writing about Japanese clothing (and other cool stuff that fits in with styles here) without coming off as a bunch of raving Japanophile lunatics. Hopefully it goes well. This site is for both men and women, and doesn’t specialize in any specific style, so lolitas, gyaru, himegals, hosts, manba…ers? (well, ok, not manba) and whatever are all...
