BEAMS RELEASES A SHINTARO KAGO T-SHIRT

My friend Moni posted on Twitter some rad apparel news. It seems that our man Shintaro Kago has joined the ranks of other creators (most notably, Uncle Umezz) by being honored with designer T-Shirts by BEAMS.

The first Kago shirt (made in collaboration with the design studio whiteFUCTORY, which appears to also be doing a shirt with VICE. The shirt is about ¥5,600 and only available at their shop and online for folks living in Japan. You can check it out on their site. Looking forward to more designs in the future?

with a simple product you can copy a drawing and print it on yr t shirt.
costs; 5 $ copyright, who cares.

@hema: also true :)
I don't think i'd shell out for a simple shirt like this re-using a previous image-- unlike the very design-y UMEZZ beam shirts, which i would slap 1000 babies in the face for!

The only thing that comforts me - plus the fact the shirt is now sould out - is the incredible high price they were selling it :/
