I swear Cospa will be the death of me, with all their character goods that I want to buy. :/
Pictures first, other thoughts and notes below.
Caption: The shooting star motif in BRS Blue is the major point of interest, and it’s abstract enough to avoid identifying you as a hopeless otaku. For better or worse, the badge will be hidden by your belt.
Caption: Star-shaped rivets are a really nice touch; a tiny but unmistakeable detail. The top button of the fly is plain, I think it would’ve been nice if were detailed or special in some way.
Caption: The bright blue contrast stitching looks great against the dark wash of the denim, and is used everywhere.
Caption: The checkerboard motif on the pocket linings is a bit of hidden fun.
Caption: Detail of the badge on the back of the waistband.
Caption: Breaking chainlinks are stitched into the back left pocket, subtle enough to go unnoticed by mere mortals.
In all, very nice (as you’d hope for about 16,000yen before shipping). Guessing the correct size is always a bit of a hit-and-miss affair, I think I got pretty close.
The waistband feels a bit wide, it’s not touching my body at all. It is sitting about right on the hips though, so I blame my skinny waist. The belt will fix that, but it’ll be stiff for a little while.
