Worlds Biggest Vending Machine – Delivers T-Shirts

Japan Uniqlo ut

UNIQLO UT, a massive Japanese T-Shirt brand has just opened an entire store which is essentially a big freaking vending machine. Set in Tokyo’s Harajuku district, the “shop” vends T-shirts in tubes, like tennis balls.

The big question is what are the t-shirts like? Well may I say rocking:

Uniqlo 72

Uniqlo 75
(yes this one is done by Mr Tezuka, the creator of Astro Boy and father of Manga, they have a whole section dedicated to him)

Uniqlo 73

And can you believe they have 167 Pantone colors? WTF, why do I feel the US is lagging behind the Japanese in T-shirt technology, are we not taking t-shirts seriously enough here or what?

    When I went to a Uniqlo shop in the Ginza district I wasn’t too impressed, I couldn’t find anything with an image on it (just the pantone tees, and a similar deal with outerwear), but this seems entirely different, and uniqlo are cheap too!
