Japanese artist Bathing Ape (BAPE), has selling a T-shirt formed into a Blade Runner Gun and these have been showing up on ebay recently. Not sure what the shirt looks like opened though.





They seem to be coming out of the UK. I would love to get more info on them, but I haven't found it yet.

hey guys, I've been searching high and low to what is actually on this vacuum Bape t shirt? is it just the gun design that is on the card in the cellophane? love to see some detailed pictures if anyone has opened it to see what it is?

I found one photo, which displays the two variations. However, the photo is at low resolution. As background, these t-shirts were exclusive to Mowax Records Japan office in 1997/1998.
See https://www.instagram.com/p/BnGJHT2giNv/

The t-shirt on the left appears to have Darth Vader shooting a blaster. The rainbow t-shirt in on the right has two of Futura/UNKLE’s pointmen. So apparently neither blade runner shirt actually has a blade runner print on it. See the following page for close up photos: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b513421406

Btw, the yahoo auction description reads as follows:
“a bathing ape x futura james vs nigo t-shirt size L

There are some signs of wear, deterioration of the print, and some light stains, so please judge the shirt by the images.
The original was a compressed t-shirt, so wrinkles remain on the tag.

The size is
Length: 66, Body width: 53, Shoulder width: 52

This is a james (lavelll) vs nigo compressed t-shirt, released in 1997.
This is a very cool t-shirt with futura artwork on the front, sleeves, and back.”
