Old thread >>10013935It's the dawn of the new school year and Sakura. Discussion of nanchatte fashion goes here.
Is the discord still a thing, any links?
>>10145891This. I also really want to join some servers because these nanchatte threads are so slow.Also, i search for some nice blazer but not short one, crotch level like on pic rel and full length sleeves, any links? Taobao, aliexpress etc.
anyone have pintrest boards they’d like to share?
I’m starting to think im getting a too old looking for nanchatte. It’s been my go-to look since middle school (10+ years ago, god kill me) but I’m starting to feel the hurt that I might need to move on. I don’t think you can age well with it since “school” is so internalized even if you just try to look at it as “preppy”. Anybody got any more mature pics? Preferably with thigh highs still.
>>10152227Hey! I remember that girl before! Got any other pictures of her?
>>10152227Damn you were dressing this way all the way back in middle school? What did your friends and classmates think of it?
>>10152246(It’s actually a selfpost but I didn’t call it lol, and yeah I believe I saw this coord in a thread before so I consider it my best one)>>10152251Obviously I looked bad since I didn’t know what I was doing til college but in middle school-early high school I had three “coords” I can remember:>hot topic pleated skirt with huge black ribbon on a necklace chain (the classic)>red skirt and tie set that were definitely higher quality costume pieces >black skirt worn overtop a white cotton lace skirt complete with black and white striped stockings so I could be like Misa from Death NoteBut I actually dont remember anyone saying anything except my band director who dubbed me “Living Anime Character” when he gave a title to every member lelI just called it “school uniform” clothes
>>10152281Seriously! Her coords are so cute! I wanna see more from her!
>>10152227If you don't look old there's nothing wrong with dressing in nanchatte in mid twenties. (Assumed your age from you being in middle school 10+ years ago, sorry if I'm wrong) >>10152281None of these outfits sound like nanchatte to me though.
>>10154615I’m really not that good especially compared to the other, more active girls but if you actually want to see, I’m ann_without_wings on insta. fey.chu, ferdverel, etc. are better though haha...>>10154626Yeah I’m soon turning 26 and I feel like I’m showing it. I might only last another year before I feel fully uncomfortable dressing like a high schooler. I found one of my old HS pics. It’s the least shitty of the proto- “nanchatte” fits I described lol. I wish I had the same passion for clothes then as I do now and had found tips online on how to fine-tune a proper coord, when I was in the prime for wearing it. Oh well I guess time stops for no one.
Which stores should I check for loose socks in Japan?
Was searching through aliexpress but the selection looks iffy. Any recommendations for buying uniforms to look like a delinquent? Going for the sukeban deka look.
>>10158806I didn’t look purposefully for them but the only time I saw them was at a little 3-pair-for-1000円 sock store in an indoor mall. Not the chain store called kutsushita but it was basically the same. Like the equivalent to a sock corner in a low end department store in the States. Sock stores like that are probably in every Japanese mall. This one was EBeans in Sendai if you happen to be there. >>10159296Honestly just making your own seems to be the easiest way of getting sukeban and gakuran unless you want to pay Mercari SS’s. Could get one of the costume ones and take it apart to use the pattern if you’re new to sewing.
>>10158806I heard Paris Kids sometimes carries them but their stock changes wildly
>>10145891>>10147155The discord is still a thing, although it's a bit quiet lately. https://discord.gg/5DGQxnhmu again if the link is expired by the time you see this>>10152227I feel you. I'm 29 now and I feel like I'm just about starting to get to that point where maybe I should stop. But I also love all my clothes still and I feel like I look fine in them so idk. Maybe it'll naturally work itself out and once I stop looking good in the clothes I won't want to wear them and won't miss them.Regarding more mature styling: it's kinda hard if you're still wearing a short skirt. I find that eliminating either one of the defining schoolgirl traits (either the pleats or the plaid) helps a bit. More fitted blazers instead of shapeless blazers, generally more tailored stuff, oxford heels instead of sneakers, etc. kind of helps I think. and longer skirts help too, though then you can't really wear thigh highs anymore. Pic related was me trying to do more preppy and less nanchatte, though how I successful I was I leave up to you to judge lol. I wish my vest was made of a thicker material. >>10159296Here's a taobao listings for a long skirt: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=521770079524 https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=522979856108beyond that idk.
Do you think this blazer would work in a nanchatte outfit? I have been wearing nanchatte for a while now but I am a total noob when it comes to blazers.
Over the last few years ive put on a bunch of weight due to medication. maybe one day if i can get off meds i'll be able to loose it, but as of right now im struggling to admit that im both too old and too fat for nanchatte, and that I need to give up on j fashion alltogether. I want to wear cute clothes but i cant find any american brands that make cute stuff.
>>10160815You are probably fine. There are a lot of overweight people in J-fashion that do just fine. The important thing is to be realistic on what looks good on you. Buy stuff, try it on, if it looks bad sell it. If it really bugs you that much lose weight. You can lose weight on medication, it is just harder. If it is medication for depression or anxiety (been there) it will help you in more ways than one to exercise. Do your best, anon.
>>10160013The link's expired, please post a new one!
Are there any people who combine nanchatte with punk elements?
Does anyone have any examples of mature nancatte? I feel like learning about this fashion at 34 was a mistake. I don't look extremely old, but I could never wear this and look how I did 10 years ago.
>>10145460do you have a favorite place to buy loafers from? i'm having trouble locating comfy-looking heeled loafers that don't cost a fortune.several people have recommended bodyline or cosplay sites to me but i'm wary based on bad experiences (packages taking longer than 3 months,etc).
>>10167408Unironically thrift stores, since there are a lot of barely used real leather ones there for some reason. People have a lot of work shoes they replace on a whim all the time I guess. In lots of fun colors too.
>>10162077I'm interested in joining too but the link is expired again. Could you post a new one please?
I got a bag from my boyfriend and I wanted to build a nanchatte-ish look around it. Does it look okay? Or do I need to change a few things?
>>10168295https://discord.gg/3y9uECI know it's slow so good chance you might not see this before it expires again lol. But I'll keep reposting as long as there's interest.The server has been quiet, but the weather is shit and thus I have zero motivation to dress cute when it's still too cold for it (it only got as high as 7 C today...wtf, it's mid-May).
>>10168528This would be incredibly cute. I hope you post a coord shot.
>>10168528Are you going for nanchatte or cosplay? because if the first, please forgo sewing derpy ears to the beret.
>>10168650I will! Thank you for your opinion.>>10168653I kind of wanted to make a Pom pompurin based coord so I thought the ears would be a cute extra for the outfit, I’ll just give it a try and see how it looks though.
>>10168528Bruh don’t listen to >>10168653sew on the ears if you want, it would be cute af and still nanchatte
>>10168653I also think the ears would be dumb. It’s already recognizable as the character without going into gijinka territory.
>>10168933I'm not that anon, but I think it's recognizable enough without the ears. The ears would make it a bit too cosplayish to me, as well.
>>10168933I think the ears will look weird on the beret.
>>10175288I like this
Do you guys have any links to pleated skirts that are cheap but not total crap and dont show your butt? I am having some trouble finding, thanks
>>10175287Ok does anyone know who this girl is/went by online? I'm a little late to the jfashion game and i feel like I cant figure out who this chick is.
>>10160013i love her bag
>>10160013That's a man
Anyone know where I could find a cute and colourful cardigan like this?
>>10183839While Milklim has colourful clothes, they don't offer anything even remotely like this. I don't think I've seen a single cardigan from them.
>>10168528>>10168650my pompurin items have arrived, unfortunately the cardigan's colour ended up a lot more peachier than expected so I might order the yellow one and pray it'll arrive before the con.
>>10184427aw still cute but good luck! would love to see it w the more yellow one
What're you supposed to wear underneath a gakuran? Just a plain white long-sleeved shirt? Do you not wear a tie?
anyone where to find seifukus inspired by the older style (long skirt and all)?
>>10188999A gakuran? Usually a button up and a white t-shirt
>>10168528I vote no ears on the beret as well. The brown beret matches with Pom Pom's little hat so I think it's very cute as it is.
>>10189667Maybe Bodyline still has one ?
>>10168646Post link plox? and please for the love of god edit the settings of the link to never expire
>>10183830Oh fuck. I recognize that backdrop. It's probably mezzo pianowarning: ageplayI know this word gets thrown around to refer to anything childish, but I'm talking some serious "girls-peeing-in-diapers" type of thing.>the clothes/aesthetic is cute though
>>10160013Honestly this is a very good not super school girly look w/ elements of it still. I look older so I wouldn't want to wear a full school girl outfit. I appreciate this a lot.
>>10191111> ageplayHold on is this a fetish wear brand? Because fetish clothing tends to be either amazing or awful with little in between
>>10197105Cute>>10199502I looked at the website for it (メゾピアノ)。it’s just children’s clothing. So, not sure if I’d be willing to wear or not, personally.
>>10199527It's cute but it's tripping me out to see these little white blonde haired blue eyed children wearing Japanese styled clothes.
Can i have a link to the discord that actually works?
>>10199527>$100 baby clothes>$1000 randoseru
>>10199502>>10199527Anon was mistaken, this picture is from a loli fetish cosplay group/brand and the clothing is (probably) from Mezzopiano. I think they do make some shirts and other clothes, but these girls also wear things from actual kids brands. Check @otonajyojifuku on twitter if you’re curious, I’ve seen these people at an event in person and it’s definitely bizarre.
>>10200406>#大人なのに女児服着てる>Despit being an adult but I’m wearing little girls’ clothesLol wtf

>>10201848This is a cosplay of the girls summer uniform from Free, but still it’s workable.
>>10201847How are these? Anybody have them?
Recently went looking for some summer inspo and wanted to share
I noticed not much sailor uniform collars, do people prefer point or sailor collar?
>>10200406how was I mistaken, adults that are wearing mezzo piano are definitely in it for the fetish aspect, it's why all these girls are fucking showing off their diapers after their coord shots. the actual BRAND isn't a fetish thing but if you search it >>10200412 are the kinds of pictures that show up
Decided to stock up on ties and ribbons from the bodyline sale
If you visit korea, I recommend to go Dongdaemun. 1st floor of Migliore has school look shop. Most of clothes are 'K-POP stage costume' style, but you can find cute stuff.Disclaimer: I'm not expert of this style, but random korean live near dongdaemun happen to find group op people who love this kind of cloth.
>>10204048Sorry for drop location. This shop is located right next to escalator. It is easiest shop to find in dongdaemun.
Does anyone have any Taobao nanchatte recommendations?
>>10204543Hug Sunshine tends to be the number one recommended store on Taobao, low price and decent for beginners>>10204046Ooh looks fancy! I love that pink blazer
>>10202035Late reply, but they're make of the same fabric as their long sleeve school shirts. The white is a little see through if you wear a dark bra, so I'd recommend a tank top underneath.
>>10204046>>10204047Oh god this looks so nice, i like a little bot more ”costumey” uniforms, does japan have any places like this?
>>10207949A lot of cosplay shops in Japan should have AKB inspired uniforms, which are more cutesy and costumey. The entire top row of the first picture looks like stuff you could find in Japan
>>10208140Forgot to add, this seems to be a korean brand that does a lot of school uniform kpop costumes. Does anyone know them?
Can I get people's opinions on the quality of Bodyline's bows? I like the designs as well as the low prices, but I would rather not wear it if it looks very cheap.
>>10210310I made an order of them here >>10202919 if there's any you like I can post a review when they arrive.
>>10210586Thank you, anon! I'm mostly curious about the bows that come from the sets (like the bottom row, middle picture) since they are a bit more expensive. The ones being sold separately are so cheap, I'm probably just going to go ahead and order them before the sale is over.
>>10210619I have a few bodyline skirt sets including costume657 (most of the ones I bought were older/off the site now) and the fabric used for matching bows are generally made of the same fabric as the skirt. The bow with costume657 is thick material, not shiny or thin, but I've had full uniform sets (top+tie+skirt) that were thinner material, again same as with skirt. I think most of the skirt sets on the site now are the more thick, higher quality ones
Does anyone have any experience ordering from seifukudoncky? It looks like what they sell there are parts and sets of actual school uniforms, rather than just imitations, but as a guy most of my options coming from nanchatte brands are limited anyway (understandably, since there's not really the market for it). To me this looks like my best bet at getting something that's realistic and looks good - I was just wondering if anyone here had past experiences with them and could vouch for it or warn me of any pitfalls. I get that the girls' uniform parts are about twice the price of the guys' so I'm not seriously expecting anything in response, but I figured I'd ask anyway.
>>10213446Not sure about seifukudoncky, but if you're interested in more male nanchatte options taobao has a lot of uniform pieces
>>10217231Taobao has a lot of good stores, but I've never been able to figure out how to work the site. I guess I should just lurk their general thread for a few weeks to see how other anons do it or something.Either way, thanks for the inspo dump (assuming you're the same person who did it), maybe I'll see what I can do with the gakuran I already have while figuring out how to order things from China.
>>10217538Use Google Chrome to browse (automatically translates), use the dictionary to copy and paste translated search terms. And use the store spreadsheet to see what existing nanchatte stores people have linked.Using an SS is fairly straightforward - go to their site, submit links to what you'd like to buy, and pay the SS.
Dumping some street kfash styled nanchatte. I think these kind of looks are really cool, but it's debatable whether or not they fall under nanchatte seifuku?>>10217538Glad you liked the inspo! Some taobao stores do international shipping now, but chances are you're better off with an SS. The taobao general has a helpful guide linked, but feel free to ask for help here navigating nanchatte stores
>>10218506I too wanted to say thank you for sharing all those male nanchatte pics! They're so adorable.
>>10218582>tfw no nanchatte bf to have matching uniforms with
>>10218582Ayy I'm glad! Matching nanchatte is the dream
Any kogals left in the wild?
