Translation – Mina December 2014, Masuda Takahisa – “Massu Styling” Volume 3

We’re back with the third volume of Massu’s popular personal clothing series! This month’s theme is knits, giving us an image change from Massu.


Even though it’s only the third volume, I was given a knit theme. Impatiently, I was like “ah, I don’t have any knit items!” But all in all, I had some unexpectedly! LOL First of all, I brought a bunch of different kinds of knits. In three different ways I styled the same hat and pants combination. Which one do you guys like the most?

The knits are from these brands, from the top of the page down: Maison Martin Margiela, Sasquatchfabrix., and LABRAT.

The Margiela Knit is a shape that I normally don’t choose, but in the store I fell in love with it at first sight. Out of all the clothes that I have it’s the most “Honor’s student”-like. After seeing the picture taken of this on me, I thought I want to wear knit a lot more! For a date, this knit would be good. Yea.

When you first see the striped knit you might think it’s kinda gaudy looking, but I really like the shape of the turtleneck and dolman sleeve combination.

I think that the detail on Paisley knits is interesting. I would wear it casually when I go to meet with a friend.

To me, knit items aren’t as much as a daily item as sweat is, but wearing it all now like this was nice! Makes me want to wear knit more now. Also, the hat that I am wearing now I wore a long time ago on Music Station! It has a seasonal restriction, but every year I wear it tons. I wonder if anyone noticed??


*Disclaimer* I am still actively learning Japanese and this translation is not perfect. This translation is as direct of a translation as I can make it and I took some liberties as a native English speaker to make it flow better in English, as some things don’t translate well into English from Japanese.

    Massu should definetly buy more knit because it suit him perfectly. As expected he needed to add a really funky accesory XD lol. I love it ! The hat give some pep to his outfit. The school kind of knit is really classy with the pins ! I think it might be my favorite knit with the red and black stripped one. The red and black one seems to be perfect for cold season, warm and fluffy.
    I want to go shopping for boys clothes now XD …lol.

    Thank you for the translation !
