Kazuo Umezu Creates Some Pretty Rad Apparel With Fashion Brand X-Girl

Are you familiar with any 80-year-old cooler than Kazuo Umezu?

Yeah, didn’t think so.

The octogenarian behind legendary horror manga like Orochi, Cat Eyed Boy and The Drifting Classroom has teamed up with fashion brand X-Girl for a line of jackets, shirts and sweaters based on his manga My Name is Shingo. And man, are they something.

The items, which go on sale November 18, include a coach jacket, knit top, sweat top, big tee, and knit cap, with prices ranging from ¥4,000 to ¥16,000 (around $40-$160).

X-Girl, which was founded by Sonic Youth member Kim Gordan in 1994, was sold to a Japanese company in 1998.

Kazuo Umezu was born in 1936 and is cooler than you.
