Funny English (Sexy)
Japanglish is sometimes a bit provocative
There are many examples of strange English in japan, as well as the rest of Asia. Strange English is found, in fact, on signs throughout the world. But some of the most strange English is found on t-shirts. I wonder who writes the copy? Many of these provide the foreign visitor with a great laugh, sometimes worth bringing back home!
I saw this on mannequins in Shinjuku today. Actually, there was a beautiful young woman looking at them moments before I took the photo, but I didn't have the heart to photograph her. Apparently, these are "new arrivals," so I suppose it isn't likely that we'll be seeing very many young ladies wearing "Ripe Banana" shirts around town as yet.
Titty & Co.
Titty & Co. is a popular brand among young women. Their flagship shop is in the Shibuya 109 building - the fashion capital for young women in Shibuya, Tokyo, and beyond. They've been around for many years, but other than shots in the store, I had not had a chance to photograph anyone carrying a Titty bag or wearing clothing emblazoned with its logo. I have seen women wearing logo t-shirts before. I don't know if they are aware of its implications.
