Description


Takara (タカラ) was founded by Yasuta Satō in 1955 as Sato Vinyl with the motto “playing is culture,” and one of his first successes was securing the license to produce a line of popular American dolls for the Japanese market. In 1960, they changed their name to Takara Vinyl, though this new name would be shortened to simply Takara in 1966. In the ’70s, Takara exploded with new products, ranging from actions figures to transforming robots. Over the following decades, Takara would continue to grow and thrive through an increasingly convoluted chain of licensing, evolving, and re-licensing of toy franchises, some of which remain near impossible to unravel even today. The 2000s proved to be a difficult time for the toy maker, one that led to a merger in 2005 that would eventually see the brand disappear from the market.

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
