When my son showed me the Kyoto Village website my gut instinct sensed a scam . All the clothing was described as being made of "premium material" without any details of what the fabric actually was. The slashed prices seemed to good to be true (and they were). However to my 18 year old son the site looked legit and he was excited at the idea of being able to purchase the Wanshi Gekyu Men's Sweatshirt for $29.99 reduced from $274 for his birthday. I should have been firmer because I was right !
The "sweat shirt" is aptly named because despite being described as light and breathable it was heavy ,shiny, thick and so plastic feeling that it makes polyester seem eco-friendly & drowning in your own sweat is a distinct possibility. I'm sure I could fry an egg on it ! I do not believe anyone could actually wear this shirt.; aside from the fact it is simply the most ugly garment I have ever seen ; its plastic heaviness in an Australian climate would kill you even in the winter. You would over heat in seconds
Not only that but I am certain that the garment is so combustible that it wouldn't even be safe to wear it near a heater or anyone smoking !It isn't worth any money. I have NEVER seen any fabric like this ever .... I wouldn't even donate it to a charity shop because of the serious health and safety issues .
The shirt is clearly different from the one pictured which is black inside (this is white )and has a visible label (when the garment received has no label). The Numasaja Men's Watch also similarly reduced in price from $239.98 to $24.99 (weirdly on special today for slightly more at $34.25) ,was absolute rubbish with no working cogs and none of the described "high quality metals" and actually had a bit of tape holding the insides together at the back. The bukawagasi-mens-shirt reduced from $123.00 to $34.00 had an image that was slightly blurred and was also made made of hideous fake plasticky fabric despite being described as being made of the best quality fabric and precision tailoring !
This is a rip-off of the worst kind because teenagers and young adults are more likely to be influenced by the fake price slashing and edgy "street-cred" marketing ! These clothes aren't wearable and therefore will just create more junk & waste to end up in landfill ,polluting our precious planet.
