I’m not usually one for yawning on about the traditional filmic touchpoints of blokishness. Yes, yes Goodfellas is very good. So is Raging Bull, The Deer Hunter and Apocalypse now. And yes I’ve seen Hearts of Darkness, and yes isn’t it weird seeing a drunken Martin Sheen goaded by Coppola etc.. etc… Everything’s been said about this stuff. But it’s not every day you discover a Japanese, shirt-based homage to Quadrophenia. It might not be your flavour, it might not be mine, but it exists. And it’s a shirt. And it’s got Quadrophenia on the back. And sometimes, I just like the smell of that in the morning.
Nope, I’ve never heard of Geruga, or The Original Geruga Brand, as they bill themselves on their site. They appear to be another workwear through an Eastern lens ensemble, but no less interesting for it.
If you take a look at their dealers, they appear to be pretty much exclusively sold in Japan, certainly no western representation that I can find. Which would certainly make a UK wearer of this garm pretty rarified. Course, you’d have to go through a proxy service to try and get your hands on it. But then, I can’t see an issue like that getting in the way of an ace face like you.
