Replacing Do yoko chichigawa

i’ve been wanting to change the leather loops (chichigawa) on my Do since my first exam last year when i almost had a wardrobe malfunction. luckily it was at the end of the test before one of the loops came loose.

i put it off because it seemed to be such a chore, but after doing it once, it’s really not so bad.

note: the ends of the loop are held in by tension. it is important that you tighten each of the four ends separately and that you leave enough of the ends after trimming so that they do not slip out of the knot.

i got my replacement chichigawa at which comes with tapered/precut ends.

New item, digital proofs

just received the digital proof of the keep calm design on American Apparel 50/50 Girly t-shirt. this will be available on the following sizes- M, L, XL (which i’ve been told will fit S, M and L sizes as these tend to run one size small).


a limited number of size M American Apparel 50/50 Jersey shirts have also been ordered. this will fit size S.
