I am sure Concept Shop had 15 year anniversary party tees about a year ago.

Although Bape might have started fully as a brand in 1993 in Interviews Nigo has acknowledged, that he used to do tees that he made himself out of a little store at the start of the 90s.

Perhaps this is when he really considers it starting.

The tees they had were from the 15th Anniversary Party though.

With a Barcode of 15 on the back.

Bape started with hand screened stuff by Nigo in 93. He opened a shop in harajuku around then called Nowhere, which is where the Nowhere Ltd. thing comes from inside bape stuff on the wash tags.

Sure I know that but he has said in interviews that he produced tees a few years before 1993. It was only when the line of tees he produced became sucessful that he opened a shop called Nowhere in 1993.

I am sure this is the front of the tees:-

There were two styles with a barcode on the back.

I may well be wrong on the dates though :)
