Along with video games, manga and anime are the latest geeky pursuits to hit the mainstream. You see YouTubers racking up millions of views from analyzing and reacting to them, rappers name-dropping and quoting them in songs, and even high profile brands collaborating with some of the most popular franchises. But if you want to keep it low-key while still fire bending, there’s always a custom shop that can cater to your tastes. Shops like the dope Sagesone. I keep missing their drops, but I can’t hide their skills from the world forever, so here we go.
Sagesone modifies sweatshirts and hoodies with woven patches featuring scenes from manga and anime. All your favorites are here, from OGs like Akira and Neon Genesis Evangelion to new kings like Jujutsu Kaisen and Kimetsu no Yaiba. However, as with custom products, these are very limited and sell out very quickly.
Thankfully, you can commission Sagesone to make an item just for you. In fact, your patch doesn’t have to be from a manga. It can be any picture, as long as it’s not too dark. Sagesone also recommends images with lots of contrasting colors for the best effect. Finally, this being a patch, expect that the finish will have this pixelated comic book look. That’s part of the appeal anyway.
Sagesone’s custom sweatshirts and hoodies start at $70 (USD), while the limited drops they release vary in price. Head to their store for commissions and keep an eye on their Instagram for their next drop.
