“If it doesn’t exist, why not bring it into existence?” This is what the creators of the Samurai Armor Hoodie asked themselves when they couldn’t find a version of medieval knight hoodies based on traditional Japanese armor.
The question then became, if they made it, would people buy it? The answer is yes. Tokyo Otaku Mode released a limited number of hoodies in 2015 for 32,000 Yen in Japan and the run quickly sold out.
Now faced with a product and a demand, it’s all become about supply and how to make more hoodies, more efficiently, with better quality for a worldwide audience. That takes money.
To that end, they’ve launched an Indiegogo campaign to help make it happen. The hoodies come in three different colors with all kids of awesome details.
