BATHING WITH THE APE PART 2

BATHING WITH THE APE

What was your first purchase? How did you get it? (eBay, BWS, etc.)

ENGLAND

ROB
A couple of fake items from eBay: t-shirts and a sweatshirt. My first legit piece was the APE HEAD and cross bones full zip hoody. Bought through Anjinzuka whilst he was in Japan.

WAYNE
It was the large Ape head cross bone hoody. Still a striking piece in my book

JAMES
I purchased a college logo T from eBay which turned out to be fake. After this experience I only wanted to buy directly and for Japan retail so it took me a while to get my first legit purchase, which was a pair of Bapestas from the Harajuku BWS. They were the Halloween Mummy versions. I remember them telling me that it was the last pair of only 2 size US12 they had received. I kept them until they literally fell apart haha.

BATHING WITH THE APE PART 1

Welcome to BATHING WITH THE APE.

This initially started as a post where I wrote about my feelings towards possibly the most famous streetwear brand of all time, A BATHING APE. This would cover from the time I discovered the brand, enjoying the heydays, and what I think about the company now. After writing for a while I realized that there were plenty of other people that had gone through the same thing as I had so why not turn this into a bigger event? Why not indeed.

So, spread over 6 parts, here are the insights, thoughts, experiences, and opinions of some of the good people that I met of the years that I spent Bathing with the APE.

FOLK DEVIL - OUTFITTING OUTSIDERS

I discovered FOLK DEVIL on Instagram not long ago and was instantly drawn to its great selection on images on its account as well as this great but simple first issue T.

BENCH MADE SPIT REIGNS GINZA

I have been a fan of GROK LEATHER for a while now but have never gotten around to visiting his workshop so when I was last in Tokyo I made my way over there on the first day.

Situated in Ginza, the BENCH MADE workshop in located in the same arcade that Porter Classic is. This makes for a great opportunity to check out these two awesome places at the same time.
