Undercover by Jun Takahashi 2013ss hooded tee, size 2
Up for sale here is a t-shirt from Undercover’s spring-summer 2013 season. Undercover often release musician-themed collections, having also released clothes inspired by the Jesus and Mary Chain, Can, Suicide, Television and others. The 2013ss collection was devoted to the Talking Heads, definitely a classic band and well worth checking out if you haven’t already. The reference here is a bit more subtle than some of their other pieces. In this case, lyrics from the Talking Heads song “psycho killer” are printed on the front pocket.
Talking Heads reference aside, you’ve got a great Undercover shirt here anyway. Color and fabric processing is definitely unique, as is the hood detail. This is a nice piece for layering in particular, and would look very good paired with a long sleeved shirt underneath. Front pocket has Velcro closure and hood has a rear adjustment.
These shirts were produced in very small quantities at the time of release and are very likely not to be released again any time soon. Japanese retail was about $150 if you can believe it. Retail abroad was $200-$250. Get it here for a fraction of that.Size is labeled a 2, equivalent to a small/slim medium. I measure the chest at 19” (although it also has a fair amount of stretch), shoulders at 17” and length at 25”. The shirt comes in used but very good shape with no holes, tears, stains or obvious signs of wear
