LOOKBOOK | 19Dec2015: 40 years of Voltes V

Star Wars may undoubtedly be white hot right now but yes, that's a Voltes V t-shirt I'm wearing right there. The George Lucas-created space opera is arguably drowning out everything else with merchandising deals left and right, including several with various clothing brands (and of course I got a Darth Vader t-shirt!).

Meanwhile, the classic party of five anime is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Thankfully there's Giordano to help us relive fun times with Voltes V.

The brand released a couple of unisex tees that come with a special packaging. I got a total of four for me and Kwittiegirl (I thought we could swap shirts anyway). This one I'm wearing here features the cartoon's five main characters who pilot all five ships that make up the super robot Voltes V.

Here I simply wore blue jeans, a pair of black sneakers, and a varsity jacket with my new beloved t-shirt. I know, the title of this post says Dec. 19 and it's only now that I got the time to attend to this.

Cool packaging for the special limited edition Voltes V 40th anniversary t-shirts.

I must admit that the t-shirts are a bit expensive at Php 999 but I got them anyway. Sometimes we just have to really buy things, don't we? Now I'm a happy kid.

Maybe Kwittiegirl and I could swap t-shirts one time.

Happy kid indeed.

All of the characters's mouths are agape, so count me in.

These shirts are selling fast but I think Giordano is constantly restocking, which is why I was able to grab two more. They also have a raffle if you buy two shirts.

Update:
Oh hey, I got to wear one more tee from my loot just recently. It's a black one that I paired with some joggers. Pulling back the hems affords an even more relaxed feel and I think it also accentuates the high-cut shoes.
