Be a Fundoshi Model


Yukie Kaneko is a graphic designer who has been specializing in modern takes on Japanese family crests. For her next project, she’s designed a collection of fundoshi, a traditional type of Japanese “underwear,” similar to a loin cloth, often worn during festivals.

She’s currently looking for non-Japanese men to model her fundoshi collection, and so needs your help. The photo shoots will be done in Tokyo, indoors and outdoors, by fashion photographer Rie Sahara — she took the shot above. No compensation, but it should be a fun few hours, and you’ll get some prints.

You can contact Yukie directly by mail. She also has an online shop selling some of her designs.
