I really love all the Sex Pot snaps where there are whole families shopping there.
Is h.naoto still doing custom size or was that just for that one event?
>>10655375Nevermind, found the answer.
>>10655373that is great.since h.Naoto has released some kids' items, i wonder if there will be family snaps for them as well.
this h.Naoto customer snap from this summer is nostalgic as hell.
Reminder that everyone and their mom got summer sales going on.
I really wish ankoROCK wasn't $$$, they just put out their halloween releasehttps://www.ankorock.co.jp/cat/horror_night_girls.html
h. Naoto is opening two "store inside store" next year, first one comes in may
Will the bear photo prints fad ever stop.
>>10669193I feel like LFhas gone downhill since 2016 but that being said I do have that oversized button up with the bondage bear print
>>10669193I'm genuinely getting tired of the bears too
>>10670012Seconded, it is very overdone and cheap looking.
>>10669193I feel like LF is dropping the ball, even ACDCRAG knows the mid 2000s j-punk look is in, they should be bringing stuff like this back
>>10670061I like this, it is super sexy and cool at the same time.
>>10670061>they should be bringing stuff like this backHard to when their original artist has disappeared since 'rona.
>>10670552Can't explain anything beyond that, it's just how it is, the LF staff doesn't know more either because he's unreachable.
>>10670575that's so bizzare. Do you happen to have sauce or is it just a rumor? I'm only asking because I have friends who like LF so i wanted to let them know
>>10670654The source is Listen Flavor's manager Yuu (https://twitter.com/listenflavor777), it's also why the artist (ジーザス師匠) has not been in any of the staff group pictures since 2020.
I'm surprised that Sexpot has so little likes on FB, they post so much exclusive content on there.
Bought a big haul of some sex pot stuff (about 60,000 yen) since they had some good sales, will post a mini review for some gulls when it arrives. I used Zenmarket since sex pot doesn’t allow foreign cards, otherwise I would have used my tenso.As a FYI, Algonquins does allow foreign cards!
Update on sex pot haul: everything is perfect. I got a lot of the oversized things because I prefer the baggy look. The custom sarouel pants are badass, comfortable, and are very easy to wear regardless of size. I think they go from like 60cm - 120cm waist. Only thing that didn’t fit me well was a jacket that was a part of their “underground room” so only available to online shoppers or those at the Tokyo store. I have broad shoulders as a dude so I’m not surprised, but I’m capable of cutting my weight down to properly wear it.They also included a free shopping bag. Anyway 10/10 would definitely buy more.
>>10667399Kera seems to expand its subbrand stores again too.
New LF out once again and this time it's just re-releases.
>>10675682I want top left and bottom right.
these hurt teddy bear motifs really fuck me up. I don’t know why, I just really feel bad for them as if they're alive or something lmao
>>10670055Kinda wish they'd focus on gore bear purses/plushies. Its so hard to find collectable punk room decor
>>10679308They always just wind up looking so overly cheap though. Like I could just make the items with a marker and hot glue or something.
>>10679308Only thing I would have seen like that is bags on TB.
>>10679115I wish I could pull off oversized shirts without looking like a potato.
requesting some peace now looks? Literally never see their stuff anywhere
>>10679444can be solved by wearing something around the waist
>>10679392This is so fucking cute! Exactly what I want. Thanks anon
>>10679481they don't exist anymore so that's probs why you don't see it around but honestly half my normal wardrobe is bpn/pn cause it's cheap and easy to find
>>10679630honestly could go on for days but i'll end here.
Listen Flavor announced its final closure today.
>>10680870>>10680870They won't shut down entirely. Their online store will continue
>>10680983Not like that matters when the majority of their stock was indie brand collabs that are never a thing online.
>>10679633Ah not seen that pic of Teru in years.
>>10679633where did u get these anon?
>>10681761All over the internet. Just Google "black peace now coords" and you'll find shit tons. That and look at BPN tags on various sites.
>>10680983The online store will remain, but they won't stock indie brands there anymore according to Fancy Surprise.
>>10681776>google black peace now coordsyou get 79 image resultswould u be willing to post what you have on mega or imgur?
>>10684902No, I'm too lazy and you're apparently really bad at googling. Stop relying on the absolute top layer of the surface web. Look at actual sites instead of just Google image results. There's a fb bpn account, tags on tumblr, Tokyo fashion, probably insta, etc. None of which will be indexed on Google images. Also, even looking at Google image results if you JUST type in "black peace now" a fuck ton comes up so idk what you're doing wrong desu.
>>10679622Oh I do not like the left one.
seems like dml is hopping on the 00s kera fashion revival boom too
>>10694205and for some reason everyone and their mom calls that style emohttps://harajuku-pop.com/50605
>>10694206>>10694205emo was also a japanese trend, anon. emo means emotional in japanese(actually emo/scene and gyaru took a lot from eachother too)
>>10694212...it even says right in the article it has nothing to do with エモい but エモコア, and emocore sure ain't japanese
>>10694212>actually emo/scene and gyaru took a lot from eachother tooI haven't seen anyone say something this retarded in a while.
>>10694212The only thing both had in common was teased hair and that's it, also emo started in the US and not Japan.
>>10694205emo has been on the upswing in japan for a while - also Monster energy drinks go with the look, for some reason
>>10694320meant to reply to >>10694206the label is getting over-applied now that it is trending. which is perfect for emo

Can anyone recommend brands for taller men 180cm+? I always want to buy my bf nice tops but so far everything turned out way too short at the sleeves despite being "unisex oversize" (Deorart and Nier Tokyo in particular).
>>10697543maybe it's better to look at western brands who do a similar aesthetic.
>>10697559I would have done that if it would exist, but everything for men in the west is killstar tier shit.
>>10670061MOAR like this pl0x
can mall goth be part of this thread?
>>10698217If it's jp brands, sure?

Is punk dead?
>>10680870huh didn't expect that, assumed it was popular
Never visited this general before, really nice style, like it a lot.I feel like it's for cool people though and I'm not cool so probably not for me, but I'd love to see this in real life.
>>10713081they lost their original artist in 2020 and it hasn't been the same ever since with everything being recycled old prints and photo manips. also, the area where the storefront is getting torn down this year to make space for tourist hotels so it wouldn't couldn't have stayed there anyways.
>>10713505>>10713081listen flavor still exists, they're just online only nowhttps://listenflavor.com/
>>10713515we know, doesn't change that they don't have any irl shop anymore.
LF's latest collab is Vocaloid.

I figured this is the best thread to ask....where would the best place to sell old (2013 era) creepy yeha stuff?
Don't know if this is the place to ask, but looking for some dark mori kei inspo, or anything with that kind of silhouette?
>>10722955I will never stop hating that makeup trend.
>>10725208just google strega fashion
>>10718467ah fuck, how did I miss this?
New LF dropped.
>>10707530>I’m a guy so I can’t wear any of it nuts it’s so appealingwhat>>10673481>>10674705>>10679633>>10694532at least 4 guys wearing these clothes itt so far.be the man you want to be. make your own clothes if you have to. goth & punk both have roots in recycling and handmaking clothing. buy some clothes from Japan and then cut out the cool parts out to apply to clothes that fit you, why not? be creative
>>10728837that first one has womanly hips, but who cares, it's a masculine look. go for it, gull
>>10728837you sound retarded.
>>10694205I really like the horns
Just wanted to say i miss darker gyaru, specially Ane and Ora Ora
>>10734686not a gyaru, just noticingthis looks like it has a little overlap with scene. It's funny how very different styles can have similarities. Before you ask it's the hair & collar.
>>10735734anon, you must not have lived that generation. no scene girl was wearing those collars in the US. scene was colorful.also another classic example of zoomers talking about fashions (gyaru, scene) that they don't know shit about. love how vocal ya'll are.
>>10735750are you capable of responding to someone without making a dramatic, sweeping declaration, auntie?
>>10735734a lot of those styles from the 00s were inspired by western fashions from the time
>>10735754anon, you're just a fucking newfag. welcome to 4chan. read/lurk moar before you post.
>>10735750you know scene/emo were used interchangeably right?
>>10735769are you fucking kidding me? are you serious?
>>10735806how old are you? scene/emo was barely taken seriously to begin with. but the only discernible difference was whether or not there was color in the outfit. the music was all the same too, screamo. but i guess you're too young to know.
Sex Pot has an outfit contest going on, hashtag is #セクポコーデコンテスト2022 on Twitter.
>>10735769>>10735833NTA but you must be pretty young thinking that because emo really didn't look anything like scene, you might as well say emo and goth are the same thing.
>>10739620Ok so nobody asked for this but I’m going to provide an answer from the perspective of someone genuinely involved in these communities in the 00s. emo came from the indiekid look of the late nineties (skinny jeans, big belts, striped tops, the iconic hair) mixed with elements of goth (androgyny, dark colours, emotional and often melodramatically dark music) - scene came later and definitely had emo inspiration but was also influenced by punk and gyaru with its bright colors, huge hair, tutus and accessories (and cartoon characters and Japanese influences like hello kitty). Scene music was usually more electronic. An indiekid playlist would be more likely to contain bright eyes and lavender diamond, an emo would have my chemical romance and hawthorne heights, scene was more likely to be a lot more sexual in themes with more techno influence, see blood on the dance floor and brokencyde. All the subcultures were closely related and often resided on MySpace, but they definitely weren’t the same.
>>10739670dropped image but here’s an example of scene vs emo - they weren’t that similar. but it’s not wrong to point out similarities between scene and gyaru
>>10739620they literally look the same minus the colors. same makeup, same clothing styles, same haircuts. and emo/scene girls used the terms interchangeable as well.
>>10739685the music influence is totally different , emo is based on western goth where scene takes way more influence from j-goth, you really must be both blind and retarded to not see the clear difference. even the makeup styles are totally different. and emo girls hate being called scene, you've never met one or you'd know that so please shut the fuck up about shit you don't know.
>>10739689there's no difference in music you retard. holy shit i hate children.
Scene and emo being the same has been a meme forever. They are barely real fashions to begin with, considering both of them started as insults towards posers. I'm in my 30s so I know firsthand. If crazy wk anon is actually older, chances are she's scene still(and therefore autistic)
>>10739690lmao, I am literally 30 years old. they have some similar sounds, scream influence is common in both but scene music is electronic focused, emo music is "traditionally goth" and theatrical. blood on the dance floor vs mcr is a very clear cut example of this.
>>10739685>they literally look the same minus the colorsBy your logic lolita and gyaru look the same too.
>>10739692>being 30s>thinking emo started as insult for posersAh yes, Emocore bannds and their fans started calling themself emo in the 80s because they thought of themself as posers, right.
>>10735833What are you talking about? There was a stark difference in scene and emo people back in the mid 2000s. In fact, the name scene came to be because people would come to hardcore shows just to party, wear bright colors, and ignore most of the subcultures unwritten rules. Obviously most hardcore fans were not happy with this so they started calling attention grabbing posers as "scene". The emo subculture evolved in parallel and was its own branch of punk music. Of course since both genres kind of peaked in popularity around the same time a lot of people dabbled in both communities, hence why as time went on the styles and music did have influence on each other. However, emo looks majority of the time were way more toned down. It included side swept bangs, dark natural hair colors, hoodies, black tees, converse, and skinny jeans. It was also less about how you looked and more music based. Scene on the other hand was more fashion based and the music evolved to be more electronic. It included big teased hair, wild hair dye patterns, neon colors, hello kitty, more skimpy outfits, sharp brows, and whatever was big on myspace at the time. In addition, growing up it always felt like the scene community was mostly composed of popular weird kids, while the emo community tended to attract outcasts and you saw a lot of lone emos. To your average prep though, they were interchangeable but so were goths, rivet heads, and metal heads at the time.
>>10739707plus, not all the music had screaming in it, i.e. not screamo...
>>10739693>emo music is "traditionally goth"Why did you have to insult goth rock like this
>>10739707Lol you just repeated what >>10739670said
Has anyone bought from ACDC rag recently? I made about a $300ish order from them this month and everything got here to the US pretty fast, but the quality of the clothes feel very thin and plasticly. I had a snap on a detachable strap already pop off after taking it off twice. Luckily it was an easy fix, but I cant help to feel pretty disappointed. I'm not expecting anything amazing for fast fashion prices, but still I feel like the quality is a lot worse than most of their western alt fashion counter parts at a similar price point.
>>10741265sounds about right, ACDC rag quality is crap. Wish the western community wouldn't support they so hard. Their clothes literally feel and look like trashbags
>>10741265>but still I feel like the quality is a lot worse than most of their western alt fashion counter parts at a similar price point.That's simply because everything in Japan costs more, including literal trash bags.
>>10741275>>10741267>>10741265pretty sure it was always bad lol. there's select things that are ok
>>10741275Eh like 10 years ago I would have agreed, but most things in Japan have not gone up in price the last decade. They pretty much don't have inflation. Plus, it's not like I haven't bought nicer items from Japan at a similar price point. I'm just surprised by how plasticky and thin their clothes are, and how I've never seen bad reviews from them before.
>>10741283>and how I've never seen bad reviews from them beforethey used to sell on amazon (japanese one, that is) for a while and everything had so many reviews quit it again, so I guess it's because they are mainly sold on platforms where you can't leave reviews
Listen Flavor's manager just announced a collab with Bitch Gold Label, super old visual kei store, as part of their 20th anniversary.https://twitter.com/listenflavor777/status/1507033844956135428

>>10745477>also did sex pot in harajuku shutdown? i thought i heard a rumor it was.yes and no, just like listen flavor the original store fell victim to the tokyo government tearing old buildings down to make space for tourist hotels, but they opened a new one in the moemura buildinghttps://twitter.com/sexpot_tokyo
>>10745514happy to hear they're still in business. since you seem in the know: do you know a similar shop that's just a stones through away from sexpot that's owned by some obaachan that had a wall of damn near every j-rock artist ever? she was always so sweet to me though i could only browse.
>>10741265I have shirts from them, design is really cool but the quality is so disappointing.. dresses are even worse
>>10674705how do yo ueven go about estimating sizes for this stuff when you're a western man (i'm 178cm tall, reasonably broad chest)? is it just trial and error? i guess i wear a men's large in america..
>>10745664AYRT. Get a sewing tape measure and measure yourself. All JP sizes are in cm so keep that in a file on your computer so you can reference it easily. Even if you’re chubby you can fit the stuff, there are some big guys wearing sexpo and ACDC rag on IG. Go for anything oversized, especially shirts since you’re tall and likely have a long torso compared to JP men.Secondhand market for these brands is garbage online, especially in the west, so I recommend saving up and doing a haul to minimize savings costs.
>>10745666thanks, anon! the tape measure is a perfect solution for starters. will do.
>>10745477ill date you anon!
All JP sizes are in cm!!
Sex Pot has started a new subbrand named Poison_Scorpion for jewelry.
Why does Kera keep renaming its stores, it's super confusing.
>>10751821agreed, there is zero difference between their remaining kera store, tyche, and kist. the only expection is tyche maria as its focus is lolita.
What's an item you put off buying forever, that really improved your coords and became a much worn once you finally got it?For me, it's fishnet tights. I don't know why I waited so long to get some.
>>10755473Hair accessories in general (studded hair bands and similar), at this point I feel incomplete without something on my head.
>>10728812god those look so good
>>10679560love it when girls are bottomless in public
>>10755473A cutsew for sure. Made it way easier to wear lolita casually than my blouses. Also solid/nonprint headbows and hair acessories. Way more versatile and offer new ways to coord things.
>>10728812damn love the blue fire one, I like it on her and I'd also like it for me as a guy
>>10755473Smaller brand headbands with bows. I used to think offbrand ones worked fine, but the bows don't quite have the same shape a lot of the time. My most worn headwear is a HeartE black headband with a bow on it.

Sorry if someone already asked that, but any ideas where I could get good quality clothing to build some ouji outfits that could pass as daily fits ?. I'm really looking for solid stuff, good materials.
>>10773815Jamie ANK would have some unisex pieces that could fit ouji, beyond that there is only the usual brands like h. NAOTO and Deorart.
>>10773876Jamie ANK is exactly what I was looking for, thanks you anon.
