heat wave? not for the person next to you!

I stumbled upon this article over at the Times, and immediately wanted to see about acquiring one of these air-conditioned outfits…

Employees of Japanese power-saving goods venture “Kuchofuku”, meaning air-conditioned clothing in Japanese, wear jackets which have cooling fans on its back for air-conditioning at the company’s headquarters in Toda city, suburban Tokyo on July 12, 2011. As jackets go it looks far from fashionable, but its Japanese maker cannot meet sky-rocketing demand for “air conditioned” coats with built-in fans. Kuchofuku Co. Ltd — whose name literally means “air-conditioned clothing” — has seen orders soar amid power shortages in Japan after the devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Down here in Texas, you can get a sunburn just driving to the grocery! I can sweat my makeup off quicker than you can say, “maybe it’s Maybelline??”

I’m not sure how fashion forward these things really are, but when it comes down to it, comfort trumps fashion, right??

Right?…(chirp chirp)

BAH! I couldn’t even say that with a straight face. I mean, who am I kidding? I wear six-inch platform clogs to work and am consistantly cold in my office due to the frigid air conditioning blowing over my bare arms…because who wants to cover up their fabulous Ikat print tank top with a frumpy sweater?

Regardless of the desire to go out and purchase one of these suits, the article is rather interesting…so check it out!

happy reading!

hearts and hugs,




  1. bahahaha, what will they come up with next? all the random articles of clothing or items that just seem so space age, always come from China or Japan… the clothes might have to wait, but if the shoes get cuter, i might jump on the air conditioned shoes bandwagaon… http://www.mobilemag.com/2011/07/26/japanese-come-up-with-air-conditioned-shoes/

    • WHATTTT??? okay, i’m gonna have to get a pair…the jacket reminded me of a windbreaker I used to wear back in the early 90’s…the sort of puffy look, like i had a fan blowing on the inside…oh wait…haha

      why do the asians always come up with this stuff first???
