How to Dress like a Samurai, But not Act like One
The Samurai is one of the most respected yet feared figures in all of history. These highly trained Japanese warriors would kill you on the spot if you even looked at them. They dedicated their lives to their practice and to their fellow warriors. The entire existence of the samurai is based on loyalty, commitment, and honor.
Because of their legacy of devotion and commitment, the samurai has become a revered image of inspiration. However, many people forget how ruthless they really were. It’s safe to say that you would not have wanted to encounter a samurai on the street. What if you actually made eye contact? In the blink of an eye you’d be yet another victim of ocular malfunction.
Despite their ruthlessness, many people would love the opportunity to be a samurai. Some people even devote their whole lives to the study of the history, life, and practice of the samurai. They live their lives based on the philosophy of the samurai and even take up martial arts. There might not be anymore official samurai left, but there are many honorary samurai around the world.
Dressing like a samurai is a big part of living like one. Samurai were warriors. They couldn’t go into battle in a t-shirt and jeans. They wore a fierce looking suit of armor and carried their swords into battle. When they weren’t showing off their fighting skills on the battle field, traditional Japanese costume took center stage.
If you want to dress like a samurai, there is lots of information about what they wore and how they dressed. There have been thousands of books written over the years about the way of the samurai. You could spend your whole life learning how to dress like one. However, dressing like a samurai in the modern day world could cause people to stare. And you can’t exactly kill people just for looking at you anymore. That would certainly bring your samurai days to an end.
If you want to dress in a way that shows your admiration for the samurai, printing your own personally designed t-shirts is a great alternative to the traditional garb. A good custom t-shirt printing company can print almost anything you want on a t-shirt. In no time, you can see your own personal samurai-inspired designs on every t-shirt that you own.
Best of all, you can have multiple t-shirts made with the same design. You can have enough samurai t-shirts made to give one to all of your friends. If you want to give a samurai sword to all of your friends for Christmas, but don’t have the money to buy all of them the real thing, make t-shirts with samurai swords printed on them instead.
They’ll get a personalized gift from you that demonstrates your enthusiasm for the samurai as well as functional piece of clothing that they can wear on a regular basis. Everyone loves t-shirts. But not everyone loves a ruthless samurai.
