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::
