A tacky overpriced fashion by some guy named Nigo in Japan. Bape caught on around the mid 2000s around 2005-2006 in America mainly because it was spearheaded and shown off by guys like Lil Wayne, Pharrell and the whole Hyphy movement. Bape also spawned a fashion that's dead now thankfully and spawned a many imitators using the overdone design atheistic as Bape, on hoodies, shirts, and other shit and sold for less than Bape, to people who couldn't afford it or simply lived in cities with no stores that sold it(almost every American city that's not L.A. or New-York).

Bape further proves that if you slap rarity, a high price, and put the only stores that sell it in famous cities know for status(New-York, Los Angeles, Tokyo) that you can get a few status obsessed assholes with the money to blow to buy something that's just ugly, like most clothing items that cost money, just overdone with a label on every inch of the clothing.

Bape is only supported now by rich hypebeast who want to be urban in the suburbs. Even then, you may find it rare to find a hypebeast who still wants Bape.
Bape is a super tacky dead trend, one of the worst in the 2000s.

A former "cool" clothing brand.

Died out because loser rap artists and dumb white people wore it. Idiots from American and Gaijin who listen to "I THINK I'M TURNING JAPANESE" by the Vapors too much.

It's not even cool in Japan anymore, it hasn't been cool for the last 5 years.

People in America need to get a clue about fashion. America's fashion is years behind European and Asian fashion.

As a Japanese person, I laugh at all these newjacks trying to act cool in their "has been" fashion.

Please I had this shit a long time ago.
You: Look at me in my Bape rainbow hoodie which costs 500 and my shoes that costs 200!!

Me: Baka gaijin ::shakes head::
