Hey guys, really wondering what the name of this type of style/look/AESTHETIC(sorry) is?
I know you guys probably think Superdry is dumb bullshit made by British guys trying to make some fake Japanese style profitable, but I'm sort of into the retro look of it, mostly the vibrant/contrasting numbers or Japanese characters on the sleeves or breast or something.
Anyway, I'm thinking of making my own vintage-style Japanese design (Racer/Motorsport or otherwise) into my own long sleeve shirts (preferably long sleeves that go just past the elbow)
Just kind of want to know what that would even be called, pretty tough defining that aesthetic in my opinion.
Kind of think the jacket from Drive (Sukajan Jackets) or Akira aesthetic. Mostly just Japanese
Any ASSISTANCE would be cool, but also talk shit or discuss if you want, that'd be cool too.
(tl;dr pic related, type of characters I want on a custom long sleeve shirt/jacket, along with my own design, would like name of Japanese Moto-Racer aesthetic)
It kind of reminds me of bōsōzoku subculture, but I'm not sure if there's a name for the fashion. Still, I figure it's a good place to start. You also might want to look into Take Ivy and Miyuki-zoku for more vintage Japanese style, even though it's more preppy than biker. Lastly, if you don't understand Japanese, you'll be better off not messing around with katakana and kanji on clothes. Best of luck.
Pic related, ordered this and having it tailored at the moment.

not bosozoku enough.
I wouldn't suggest Take Ivy or MKI. I mean, they're not bad, but you can definitely get more interesting and better pieces on Yahoo or Rakuten. Just learn about customs and taxes in your country and go for it.
Btw. if you don't even share 10% of a similar life-style, then don't do it... You personality plays the most important thing here.
Ah, I was talking about the Take Ivy book and the Miyukizoku subculture, not the MKI store. I figured OP might like some more Japanese 1960s inspiration. For actual pieces, yeah, I'd recommend Yahoo Auction too, even though it's a pain for people not living in Japan. And I agree about the lifestyle and personality points.

I paid 100 dollars for the jacket and ~80 for tailoring. These kinds of jackets are always really loose when you get them. If you want it to be wearable and fit well, you're going to need to tailor it afterwards.
I have this and it fits really fucking big but I like it. ~300 on rakuten.
How legit is rakuten? I wanna buy this hat off of there but between the talk of them being niggers and stealing personal info and all that i'm hesitant, but it's a good price and it's out of stock on the actual brands website so i'm torn.
i dont get what you mean
do you mean something like this?
