Few things are constant in this world: change, scientific laws, and people wanting to wear clothing with their favorite characters on it! It’s the easiest way to show your love for a character who means a lot to you and makes you instantly identifiable to other members of your fandom. When I wore an Attack on Titan shirt and Survey Corps cape to Universal Studios Japan, I made a lot of new friends that day who were also fans of the anime. It’s super effective! Without further ado, here are some anime streetwear brands with high-quality anime clothing!
Fun fact: The brands below sell clothes that are perfect for conventions, but subtle enough to be worn daily so you get more bang for your buck. They’re definitely not as showy as cosplay, but are just enough to show your fandom spirit!

6Portals is an up-and-coming anime streetwear brand that opened in April of 2021, just this year! Also based in the UK, it features several colorful tees on its website inspired by a wide range of anime: from classics such as Studio Ghibli films to old shonen anime and new shows too!

Notably, it doesn’t just feature characters posing. The store also sells T-shirts of iconic anime moments, such as Goku vs. Frieza, pictured above. Perhaps they’ll release a line someday called Top Ten Anime Betrayals or Tearjerker Anime Moments. Who knows? We’re keeping an eye on this young brand, and seeing if it keeps up to date with the memes or skews towards older, nostalgic anime fans.
Talister Paris is a clothing store based in Paris that sells anime-inspired T-shirts and accessories. While they may feature iconic anime characters, the art is drawn by the studio’s own artists, so each tee has an original design.
Personally, I was blown away by some of these shirts, especially the ones that resemble Japanese paintings and woodblock prints. Their sakura onahami print has large cherry blossoms frozen in time, while their Koi design features a carp jumping out of the water – definitely drawing from the myth of the koi fish that turns into a Dragon. With Vaporwave designs that call to mind the majestic sounds of Tokyo citypop, this brand is definitely the most colorful ones on this list!
Their accessories such as caps, stickers, and water bottles have a very sleek and aesthetic minimalist style that anime fans will be sure to appreciate! I strongly suggest you go window-shopping through their website just to indulge in a visual feast of designs.
Crude Clothing is a UK-based apparel label that uniquely designs Anime inspired embroidered streetwear.
Crue Clothing features a huge range of embroidered Hoodies & Sweatshirts from shows such as Attack on Titan, Berserk, DBZ, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, My Hero Academia, Naruto and Tokyo Ghoul (to name a few!)
Alongside their anime inspired clothes, they also sell Rapper inspired embroidered streetwear.
Ramu Clothing is an anime streetwear brand whose owners are huge fans of Naruto! The website header features Naruto running in the grass a la anime opening, and the majority of the shirts are Naruto-themed. If you love Naruto, Ramu clothing is the store for you!

The anime apparel shop with the cutest logo award goes to Geek Lord! But do not underestimate this little bunny because he is an artistic mascot to be reckoned with!
From the pink and dreamy Coral Dream hoodie inspired by Sailor Moon to the fiery Apocalypse jacket, this store sells everything you could ever want as an anime fan! Geek Lord has original concept designs drawn by in-house artists. Unlike the other stores on this list, it also sells vintage manga. Nope, not on a T-shirt. The real thing! If you go over to the website’s “manga/art/media” page, you will find their collection of anime, manga, DVDs and VHS from the 90s through the 2000s.
They also sell artistic military jackets, Japanese-style Hawaiian shirts, long sleeve tees, and more! As an anime clothing store, you’d be surprised at how much items they’re really selling.
AnimeBae is your one-stop-shop for “minimalistic anime inspired streetwear clothes.” With their hentai hoodies (or flannel), sad boy shirts, and Lewd Girls line; they’re a lot more mature than the other brands on this list. Don’t let the name and its pastel pink logo fool you! While its designs are a lot more subtle than the forever-memed “ahegao hoodie,” it does feature scantily clad anime characters.
For those who love kawaii, worry not! They also sell I’m Baby tees and cute pink caps. However, most of the designs really do lean on the edgy side, as their accessories Heartbreak Necklace and Sad Gang chain necklace demonstrate. Surprisingly, they also sell rugs and face masks! Go check out their website, it’s definitely an interesting ride! Based in Canada, AnimeBae definitely knows how to leave a strong impression.
Kaomoji’s tagline is “wear emotion” and surely, that is the focal point of their designs! With a shirt that shouts “BAKA!” they really know how to get their message across. Their adorable Kaomoji hats are must-haves, and they even have a face mask with the Kanagawa wave! But not all of their work is about emotions. They also have a hoodie that features Kizuna Ai, a popular VTuber! Kaomoji also has a collection that depicts anime tropes such as the tsundere, yandere, kuudere, and himedere.
Imouri is a Clothing & Lifestyle brand based in New York, modeled by Imouri-chan herself as seen in this graphic T-shirt! The store’s items are inspired by elements from anime and other Japanese aesthetics such as ukiyo-e and more. The brand also hosts a secret anime club with Discord giveaways, insider info, and hang-outs as well as an Ambassador program! This is definitely one of the most social anime apparel brands.
Out of all the stores on this list, Imouri offers the most variety in clothing! They have crop tops, sports bras, shorts, jogger pants, sports tees, and more alongside the usual hats, hoodies, and T-shirts. Their “stressed out” hat and Yaho! iPhone case have very cute designs, and will definitely appeal to anime fans. Personally, the UWU beanie left me unable to stop smiling. Additionally, the brand sells meme hoodies like their “Omae wa” hoodie – bound to earn laughs from fellow anime enthusiasts.
Aside from clothes, Imouri also sells water bottles, art prints, stickers, duffle bags, and SKATE BOARDS! A lot of the Imouri-chan prints sell out quickly, so one has to reserve in advance to get them.
Founded in 2015, Imouri was started by one guy named Ryan who wanted to make subtle anime T-shirts for himself. In 2016, he mustered the courage to make his store public and the rest is history! Imouri’s signature red color scheme, quirky designs, and trademark poster girl Imouri-chan definitely help the brand stand out among many anime apparel stores online!
