circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

AMEKAJI x KAMEN RIDER: Kazuraba Kouta

Today’s street fashion lesson is about Amekaji (アメカジ) style! Amekaji is short for American casual and is modeled after American brands to create a relaxed look. This style has a wide range of subsets: Western, Surfer, University Student, Worker, Military, and Biker. The style tends to flux depending on the area and subset specificity of the brand. The most popular Amekaji look of today has a somewhat relaxed, natural feel and is popular among men right now.
Kouta from Kamen Rider Gaim is a good example of Amekaji style. Let’s take a look at the main items in Kouta’s closet:
- button-down western shirts
- thick jeans
- chino pants
- leather jacket
- varsity jackets
- padded vests
All of these items correspond with an Amekaji look and have a very relaxed, outdoorsman type association. The colors and patterns chosen also affect the look. Kouta most often wears toned down, warm earth and jewel tones along with neutrals and patterns like check and plaid. Here is a small list of some Amekaji brands that includes some you might even know: L.L. Bean, RalphLauren, Eddie Bauer, and GAP. Although this list is short and there are many more brands to discover, I feel the brands chosen give an easy understanding of the general Amekaji look. And in case you were wondering, yes, DOARAT is also considered an Amekaji brand!

I found this really well-made Gaim music video on Niconico, so I reprinted it to YouTube. Check it out. If someone knows the song, I’ll credit that too.
The title of this song is Strength by abingdon boys school (English translation here)
