Macross clothing

81 posts in this topic

I suppose this is the best place for this kind of thread since it should be about clothes other than cosplay items.

I saw this jacket this morning. Don't know if it's been mentioned elsewhere. It looks like it is designed to be worn by a bike courier or something. I see a port for a camel-bak hose, and pockets on the sleeves with see-thu panels for a map or directions perhaps. A very sharp looking jacket any way you slice it.

over-drive-inc.com indicated they can get stuff like this if you see it. You will need to inquire with them. No guarantees, but they mentioned they would look into it.

See, that jacket looks hella cool, but for $34,400 yen, that maybe a bit too much. I do like it though.

I want one.

I must have one.

I must get a job, so I can purchase one!

Now, if there's ever a chance of getting a SMS feild jacket, I'd be set!

The music jacket is linked on that page and I think that looks cooler.

I saw somebody wearing the music jacket at the launch event and it was hideously ugly.

They all look like fanboy designs. The music label one looked better based on the concept art but I guess with most things they didn't translate well.

It looks like a snowboarding jacket. I assume it has the rectangular clear slots on the sleeves to put your lift ticket in.

I couldn't wear this around town, but I'd definitely wear it on the slopes!

looks cool,but not something you'd wear just out and about, looks like something you wear in a pit-stop or like Optimator88 said when snowboarding lol, which i would wear it for that aswell, I like the back of the jacket the best,looks cool.

That jacket is up on eBay right now.

I like the sleeves a lot. But the rest of it is kinda...uninspired.

For $500.00 (opening bid), I think I'll pass.

From now on I'm hijacking this thread! B))

You see, I have a question about a Macross t-shirt I'm interested in. Namely this one: http://www.toylet.net/4531894347316.html

I just wonder if anyone has real pictures of it, as that's the only one I can find and I doubt it's accurate. I would be very happy if anyone could post some pictures. :)

Why would you doubt that the pic is accurate :blink:

I have one and that's exactly what it looks like.

Well, that picture is just an overview of the pattern; it's not of the real t-shirt. You can't see details like the texture of the fabric and print, or it's actual color and dimensions. And then I just assumed there could be some differences.

But if you have the t-shirt, could you please take a picture of it and show me?

It's a Cospa T, so if you have any you'll know what the material and print is like. For dimensions check out cdJapan.

No, I've never seen a Cospa T unfortunatly. What's special about it? Is it good?

Since there aren't a lot of Frontier shirts widely available, I decided to make my own.

Nice shirt, did you do the shoes, too? If so, did you do it through one of those custom shoe sites? Good match on it all.

Actually, the bootleg Merrell shoes were already like that when I picked them up. I needed some new rubber shoes and I originally planned to get a black/gray pair when I spotted these.

BTW, the shoes cost me $10.

Does it really matter how much a person posts? I would much rather see "hey thats great" one liners, that are positive than negative bullcrap such as this.

I have several of the Macross shirts, and I must say, I love all of them. So much so, that I'm almost afraid to wear them and wear them out.

I bought two shirts at Frank and Sons, $30 each. I love them.

I love those shirts, and I think I have both of them. I have a pretty decent shirt collection of these. Good buy at F&S

My only piece of Macross clothing is an XL Fire Bomber T-shirt from Cospa.

Was lucky to spot it in Amiami for 50% off since these licensed shirts really cost a lot, considering that there are other people who can make customized shirts for way, way less.

I got this from Malaysia Fans Of Macross, a gathering of Macross lovers in Facebook.
