The Japanese Retro shirt has been designed in the style of old-school Japanese Kaijū or giant monster films, posters, and artwork. As with our Dojo Bleached Grunge shirts, the Japanese Retro shirt features oversized artwork that covers nearly the entire front. This, as with the “Cigar Dojo” logo on the back, is printed through a special bleaching process called sublimation—where no inks are applied, instead “bleaching” the color out of the fabric itself. This allows for an ultra-soft feel, even when wearing in the heat of a midday sun!
This design is printed on a Vintage Black fabric, which is slightly more worn looking than a standard “jet black.” This adds to the retro feel, having the look of an old black tee you may have worn in the sun a few times…
The artwork is highlighted by vibrant Japanese text (also bleached using red sublimation) reading “DOJO” on the bottom and “Never Smoke Alone” on the side.
