− Had you both been dressing in this traditional style since your younger days?
pon： When I was in school, the big thing was dressing up like the students in the Ivy Schools like Harvard or Yale. So when I started to buy my own clothes, I was heavily influenced by those traditional school uniforms from America. That later shifted into the “Hamatora” (a semi-formal classic style of dressing popular in the early 80s) and then I was influenced by pop singer Seiko Matsuda, and her iconic haircut. I would stick to my basic traditional style, but have fun with whatever the new trends of the time were.
bon： My basic rule for picking out clothes was whether I could wear them to work or not. I worked for an ad agency as a graphic designer, so I didn’t have to wear a suit. But I kept my wardrobe sharp, with lots of button down shirts and jackets. Mostly from Uniqlo.
pon： We both try to shop frugally. Even for high-price items, we’ll check on internet auction sites first.

− You posted once that you try to keep your purchased under 3,800 yen, and you try not to buy things over 5,000 yen.
pon： Even at Uniqlo, some of the high ticket items - like jackets - will be over 6,800 yen, so we’ll wait until they are on sale. We don’t want to pay full price for anything, even fast fashion [laughs] We make do with the budget we have, and make full use of weekend sales.
bon： We get asked quite often about our clothing, but we don’t spend that much to look how we do.
− Do you shop online as well?
pon： Yes, and I make sure to double check the size when I do. I won’t buy anything if there is no size marking. I won’t buy anything that I can’t be sure I’m getting my value for.
