As long time readers know, it’s tradition for us to debut a new shirt at each JCCS. This year we’re paying homage to the rich car culture of Japan with the JNC Kaido shirt.

Kaido means “street” in Japanese, as in “kaido racer.” Street racers can take many forms, but one uniquely Japanese style is that of the bosozoku, the notorious car and bike gangs that gave us sky-high takeyari exhaust pipes, bubble flares, and tsurikawa. They were not only identified by their slammed sleds but their rijento, or “regent” pompadours as well.

And for those who don’t read Japanese, the kanji, the JNC Kaido shirt says “Tokio” and “Los Angeles” on either side, with nosutarujikku rengo, or “Nostalgic Alliance,” around the Imperial seal in the center.

White/Gold ink on Black, JNC sleeve logo in Red. Available in sizes S through XXL.

As usual, we first dibs come to those who visit the JNC booth at the show.

    Would love to rock this TEE but I don’t wanna be the “fat guy in a little” status.

      I’ve bought alot of shirts from the JNC shop and they’ve all been really good quality! I’m kind of in between a medium and a large, so the slim-fits I will generally order a size larger, but that’s just me. The printing seems to be very good quality!

    Are these going to be skinny fit also?

    I really like the design of the old-school wheels t-shirt. I wonder if they’ve considered printing stickers of the design. If it was in a triangle with a 90deg corner it would go nicely in the corner of a window.
