The tokusatsu merchandise roundup for the transition from March to April 2021 features new merchandise from the Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and Ultra series.
Rider Jump! Rider Kick! Starting the roundup, we have the Kamen Rider x Harold’s Gear DG Tachibana Racing Club Pit Shirt. it is a pit shirt made by the well-established motorcycle wear brand “Harold’s Gear Designers Guild (HGDG)”. The concept was started from “What if Harold’s Gear was asked by an independent work called “Tachibana Racing Club”, led by genius engineer Tobei Tachibana, to wear official wear for the pit crew?” Kamen Rider No. 1/Takeshi Hongo’s occupation is a scientist and an “auto racer.” As proof of this, the Kamen Rider-driven super machine “Cyclone ” is decorated with the mark “Shield (Escutcheon) T and R” that symbolizes the Tachibana Racing team.
The company asked Mr. Akihisa Ito of “LEFTY TRICK DESIGN”, who is a member of the Harold’s Gear Designers Guild and handles graphics for many race machines regardless of motorcycles and automobiles, to design this shirt. Mr. Ito boldly arranged the design of the Cyclone. Based on the characteristic red shape line and slightly beige body color, the symbolically large Tachibana logo is featured on the back. An embroidered patch is on the left chest. The “Snack Amigo” logo on the right chest. The Tachibana logo is on the left shoulder. The Kamen Rider 50th anniversary logo is on the right shoulder. The buttons are designed with playfulness everywhere, such as the Showa classic cat-eye buttons. The shirt uses a material that can be worn both as an outing wear and as room wear. As a result, the fabric used for the pit shirt this time is surprisingly soft to the touch and can also be used as room wear.
Kamen Rider celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2021 since the program started in 1971. With the greatest respect for the work “Kamen Rider” that has fascinated fans for half a century, the graphic designer of a real race machine full of love for Kamen Rider worked on it. The company hopes that fans will continue to use it for a long time. The shirt is made of 100% polyester and comes in sizes M (Length: 73 cm, Shoulder width: 45 cm, Bust: 110 cm, Hem width: 90 cm, Sleeve length: 24.5 cm), L (Length: 76 cm, Shoulder width: 48 cm, Bust: 116 cm, Hem width: 96 cm, Sleeve length: 25.5 cm), XL (Length: 79 cm, Shoulder width: 51 cm, Bust: 122 cm, Hem width: 102 cm, Sleeve length: 26.5 cm), and XXL (Length: 82 cm, Shoulder width: 54 cm, Bust: 128 cm, Hem width: 108 cm, Sleeve length: 27.5 cm).
