amusing fashion

Spotted in Shinjuku Gyoen:
Pain Scratch Alternative Jesus ???
I'm curious what the rest of the patches said but I didn't feel like sitting there waiting for him to get up. Engrish always makes me smile. Hope you had a great weekend!
More Weekend Snapshots HERE.


  1. hello! maybe it means, "If you are suffering in PAIN, dont SCRATCH your head! Look for another ALTERNATIVE where you can easily find the way out in JESUS!" :)

    Hv a Great Week!

  2. Nice shots :)

    You got a nice blog here. Have a great week ahead!

  3. great weekend find!

    have a great week ahead

  4. no idea what that means, too ...
    but it's a wonderful find, and love the shots! :)
    happy monday

  5. I am not sure if the wearer knows what the patches mean!


  6. Makes me think of magnetic poetry! I wonder what this means to this person. Is Jesus the antidote to pain or is scratching the antidote to Jesus? Hmmm..... Great find!

  7. That's a unique weekend snapshot. I am so nosy that I'd have to wait until he got up to see the rest. Pretty hard to imagine what it could be. Happy week.

  8. Jean Chia- LOL! Nice idea! :P

    Emmyrose- Thanks! You too!

    Ju- Have a great week yourself!

    snippets- it made me laugh so that's always a good thing.

    Grace- oh probably not. English in Japanese fashion is often so funny!

    Sandy- I'd guess that the wearer probably hasn't given it much thought. Thanks for reminding me of magnetic poetry. I used to have some, I wonder where it went.

    Carver- lol! It was time to go unfortunately. You're right, I can't even begin to imagine what the other ones said.

  9. I loved reading Engrish on the subways ;-)

  10. Interesting patches and I think the jeans is cool!
    Thanks for dropping by.

  11. That is quite intriguing. I wonder what it was supposed to mean.

  12. I laughed harder once you told me that was a guy! Hilarious.

  13. I wonder what that was all about!

  14. What a great snapshot. More please. Who knew that random words could be so poetic?

  15. Janet- Engrish is so fun! :)

    Shabem- thanks for the visit!

    Nymeth- probably nothing. Just random words is my guess..

    Kookie- I laugh every time I read your comment! Did you ever see the episode of Friends with Joey's 'man bag'. Tote bags are really popular for men here these days.

    Isabelle- :)

    Alison- your guess is as good as mine!

    Christine- LOL! randomness at its best!

  16. LOL, what a combination of words! Great find, Nat!

  17. Lotus- it's certainly the combination of these particular words that add to the humour. :)
