http://swagger-co.com/”>SWAGGER co-founders and designers Hidehiro Iguchi and http://freshnessmag.com/tag/takeshi-osumi/”>Takeshi Osumi (also of http://phenomenon.tv/”>PHENOMENON) were once members of the now-defunct Japanese hip-hop group http://shakkazombie.com/”>Shakkazombie. Though Iguchi, also known for his MC moniker Ignition Man or Iggy, has put down his microphone, his respect for the culture has not faded one bit. In working with Ricky Powell, he, too, decided to select photos of legendary MCs, LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys. Rather than leaving the photo print t-shirt blank, additional gold chain graphics decorate the neckline, paying tribute to the 80’s. These t-shirts are available for pre-order at http://zozo.jp/_search/search_result.html?p_maid=1&p_ptype=0&p_keyv=ricky+powell”>ZOZOTOWN, with official release scheduled for mid August.
