Maya Kai 2 Full Graphic T-shirt

This is another T-shirt that I bought during my latest trip to Japan. It is a Heavy Cruiser Maya Kai 2 (摩耶改二) T-shirt from the series Kantai Collection/Kancolle (艦隊これくしょん -艦これ-).

The design is actually a little different from the other Kancolle T-shirts. Instead of having gradients like usual, this one has a streak of line without any gradients in the background. Perhaps it fits well with the character’s pose. To be honest, it looked a little bit empty when I see it like this, but once you wear it, it looks very cool and colourful.

Like any other full graphic T-shirts, the design is directly printed to the fabric using a DTG (direct-to-garment) method and the result is really great. Instead of having a ‘print-like’ feel like in traditional screenprinted T-shirts, this one is very soft and smooth so it is very comfortable when you wear it. However, the drawback is that the printing, although it will not crack, it will fade away much quicker than those screen-printed ones. Do always wash it with care, inside-out with cold water and dry it in a place far from sunlight.

The resolution of the illustration is also very sharp, as it can be seen from the picture above. Everything about this T-shirt is really nice. One funny thing is that her hand on the sleeves look very funny when you wear this T-shirt. It looked like she just dislocated her arm with her hands flailing somewhere else. But anyways, it is a character T-shirt so for sure that is bound to happen.
