These Uniqlo Japan Shirts Are Inspired by Music Brands

Uniqlo Japan’s Brands-MASTERPIECE collection includes collaborations with Roland, Technics, Bic, Kikkoman Soy Sauce and more.

In Japan certain consumer brands are considered cool enough to wear on a shirt. That was the idea behind Uniqlo’s Brands-MASTERPIECE collection. Familiar brands include BIC, Bianchi bicycles, Casio, Fiat, Kenwood, Kikkoman, Jackson Kelly, Jiljang, Pentel, Pocky, Polaroid, Roland drum machines, Rubik’s Cube, Technics turntables, Volkswagen and more.

Word on the street… wear is that the Roland tee is the best and everybody wants that one. Roland Corporation is a Japanese manufacturer of electronic musical instruments. They are best known for the Roland TR-808 drum machine that has inspired many EDM songs.

However this is an opportunity to proudly display the geeky hipster brand of your choice on your chest. There are not a lot of people with a BIC pen t-shirt in the US, even though we use ballpoint pens and butane lighters all the time. Or Kikkoman, the Japanese version of table salt.

This being Uniqlo, the shirts are priced at a reasonable 990 Yen or about $9.20 (USD) each. If you are an international customer, shipping and handling is ¥4,010, and orders over ¥5,000 ship free.
