    Actually I received a hello kitty handkerchief as a gift when I was in Japan last time. It was brown and as masculine as it could be, lol. I don't use it. :(

    I've been wearing hello kitty underwear for years so this is a non-issue for me.

    Thats a good strategy. You're putting the vibe out to all the young japanese ladies. Does it work? :)

    The Japanese are an amusing bunch. If I had any sense I'd move to Japan.

    I'd rock it. Then bust out my Honda scooter and roll around town.

    Think about it - big guy on a Harley - yeah, whatever - everyone has em today.

    350 pound guy in a hello-kitty tee-shirt wearing a hello-kitty helmet, on a SCOOTER. Now THAT is something to be afraid of.

    B/c who is more likely to snap and go postal? ;)
    :D

    My daughter has a Hello Kitty from build-a-bear. However, I don't think I will be wearing any Hello Kitty stuff :D

    I have had a couple of girlfriends in the past that were obsessed with Hello Kitty. I have bought gifts for them from Hello Kitty Sanrio stores in the past and I still can't get over the funny feeling of walking through the mall with my oversized Pink Bag full of Hello Kitty goods. I wonder where Sanrio intends to sell their mens line of Hello Kitty goods. I can't picture myself buying stuff for myself at Sanrio's stores, it would just not feel right regardless of how masculine they may be.

    I'm sure Sanrio may find a niche among some metro sexual teens and 20 something year olds but I think it's a stretch in the US market. I can see it working in Japan though. I guess Sanrio has exhausted options in marketing the trademark to girls and young women as they have put their trademark on everything possible and I mean everything, so preying on young men seems to be their last frontier for growth.

    Didn't they already try this with Badtz-Maru? ...Apparently that didn't work.

    Actually, for most guys attempting to pull this look off, I'd wager it's pretty much "Goodbye P***y"

    no way, my girlfriend looooves Hello Kitty, that's all I got her this holiday season.

    My friend and I love Hello Kitty as well, I almost bought him a Hello Kitty bass, but it was too much money.

    As long as you could pull it off (wearing Hello Kitty guy stuff) and you were around people who weren't homophobes (it's just clothing), you'd probably be knee deep in Kitty :)

    In Japan? This'll probably actually sell. They love this kind of stuff.

    However, I suspect the Japanese execs to be completely flabbergasted when it doesn't sell in the US at all.

    Well shoot, now that they explained it was a more rugged, masculine hello kitty, that makes all the difference. Here Kitty kitty kitty...
