Comfort food-themed apparel is so hot right now. Last year, KFC melted the internet with the launch of its chicken-inspired clothing line. Taco Bell quickly followed suit with a nacho cheese-charged Forever 21 collaboration. Milk Bar then partnered with Madewell on some cookie-themed t-shirts and bandanas. And now, Japanese fashion titan Uniqlo is dropping a line of ramen-themed graphic tees inspired by actual noodle parlors.
The shirts feature logos and insignia from Setagaya (based in Tokyo, with locations around Japan and New York), Menya Musashi (Tokyo), Ebisoba Ichigen (Sapporo), Afuri (based in Tokyo, with two stateside locations in Portland, Oregon), Hokkaido Ramen Santouka (locations throughout Japan), and international chain Ippudo. All eight tees have ramen-themed graphics on the front and few of them also have artwork on the back. They’re each priced at $14.90. It’s too bad the company didn’t ask former model and Instant ramen-enthusiast Danny Bowien to sports some of this attire... although he has perhaps moved onto more covetable brands since his Uniqlo days.
Uniqlo’s special edition apparel tends to sell out fast, so if you fancy any of these tees, it might be worth placing an order soon.
