Reader Claire sent us this awesome photo of “24th Century Casualwear” that is basically 100% perfect. As she explains it: “I met all the basic requirements: asymmetrical hemlines; color blocking; secondary colors; inappropriate fabrics (the top is made of wool felt); and weird straps that don’t serve an obvious purpose.” This color story of dried-blood brown, deep mustard, and Eddie Bauer 1997 Hunter Green is absolutely something we’d see on one of the Enterprise’s non-uniformed denizens.
I also LOVE the little “purse” she made to go with it! Claire says: “I designed the labels on my computer and had them printed on bumper sticker stock; the black lines are Chartpak tape, which is what they used to do all those lines on props and sets on the show.”
A+ COSPLAY, CLAIRE. You are ready for a casual coffee date at Ten Forward.
Shigesato Itoi’s company, Hobonichi, is mostly known overseas for its quirky but versatile daily planner, the Hobonichi Techo. Another major product is one less familiar overseas: the haramaki, or belly warmer.
As this old but informative PingMag article points out, the haramaki was once strictly functional underwear that had a grandpa-image similar to yellowing long johns. In 2001, Hobonichi reinvented them as fashion items to layer with your clothes.
You know those everyday momentary chills you get when you bend over and your shirt rides up a little? Gone. I see London, I see France, I see someone’s wearing a super handsome belly warmer over their pants. Studies have proven that wearing this thick, extra layer around your stomach keeps the rest of your body warm in the winter. It’s also great in the summer when trapped inside all day under a blasting air conditioner.
Before and after wearing a haramaki at room temperature.
The 2014 Summer collection includes three very special designs created in collaboration with Nintendo. One design stars Mario, and two designs feature Mr. Saturn from EarthBound.
*Designs are reversible
While the sizes were designed around the relatively smaller body of Japanese people, the terrycloth material is incredibly stretchy and large enough to fit most westerners. You can wear it directly over your skin, over an undershirt and under your shirt, or completely over your shirt.
You can find size charts and ordering instructions here.
Brilliant, I say! Or rather, not “brilliant,” it’s “dark,” yessiree. Dark and scary and… who am I kidding.
