Not only have Tokyo Art Beat released a couple of new shirts, they have reduced the prices too, by 500 yen (about $5). They are now sold for 3,500 yen. I still think they could drop the prices a little more but I understand the cost issues. From my own research it seems to be impossible to get tees printed as cheaply as in the US. Tokyo Art Beat uses Sweat Shop Union and while you can get tees printed for cheaper elsewhere you also have to look at the quality aspect.
The two new t-shirts are not bad. They have introduced the option of neutral colors for those of you like me, who wouldn’t don the bright pink and blues. I appreciate the concept and the detail in the designs of these shirts but as shirts they are definitely not a must have item for me. Although that might be different if I saw what they actually looked like. For those of you who want to stand out from the crowd with some limited edition fashion though it might be just what you are looking for.
