Good evening. This is Ikeda.
It's the last day of May.
Every time we reach the end of the month, I become acutely aware of how quickly time passes.
The forecast also predicts that the rainy season will begin this weekend.
Please excuse the rain.
I hate commuting in the rain, I hate it.
I hope it will be a rainy season with less rain.
Lately, with the rainy season just around the corner, there seems to be a lot of disturbing news.
Now that the coronavirus has calmed down, I hope there will be more good news.
Are people who commit such acts unable to view things objectively and only think subjectively?
I'm writing something that sounds like a criticism, but I can't help it if you say that I only consider the selection criteria subjectively.
Of course, I will continue to select things that I think are good, not only subjectively but also objectively.
While it seems like I'm only writing about things I subjectively want to write about, such as how early the time is, the rainy season, news, and selection criteria, today I'd like to introduce YASHIKI's Tsubomi Knit Polo.
It is a gentle item that is not subjective at all, but is viewed objectively.
The overall image is, as the item name suggests, cherry blossom buds.
For some reason, the kanji for ``bud'' looks very cool.
Again, this is just subjective.
Putting that aside, this is a representation of a cherry tree whose buds are starting to swell and change color, giving it a faint red haze.
Again, this is subjective, but when I tried to imagine it, an emotional scene came to mind.
The cherry blossoms have a somewhat hollow atmosphere.
The buds are expressed on the center and side parts of the body.
Here, the embossed pattern of the pique stitch represents the buds, with smaller embossments in the center of the body and larger embossments on the sides.
By doing this, it is possible to express the way the buds swell from the center of the body to the armpits.
I'm running out of ideas.
I can't think of anything like that, that's normal.
I'm in a state of praising you, but I'm trying to catch myself.
Between the center of the body and the side part mentioned above, there is a pattern with vertical diagonal lines running from the shoulder to the hem.
This diagonal line represents the gentle sunlight of spring.
Now that we are entering the rainy season, I feel nostalgic for the gentle sunshine.
The size is just right and the silhouette is loose, and the sleeves are about 5 or 6 minutes long.
I feel like the ribbing on the hem is a little tighter than other items, but that might just be my imagination, so I just took it lightly.
The fabric used is 100% cotton, which is safe and stable.
Furthermore, since it has a pique weave, it feels good on the skin and is comfortable to wear.
Plating knitting is also used for knitting, but among the selections, orange is the only one, and the other colors use single-colored threads.
Just because it's not plating knitting doesn't mean it's a negative element.
Three colors are selected: Kelly-green, Orange, and Greige.
Is Kelly-green the one that is typical of this season?
Orange has appeared in previous seasons, but it has an image that remains very popular.
Greige has a color that makes you feel more warm, which is very nice.
I have the green one, but I don't have anything close to the other two colors, so I'm delusional and assuming I'll buy it, so be careful.
Polo shirts tend to look dull, but in YASHIIKI's hands, it's amazing how they can turn out to be so elegant.
This is all subjective, but when it comes to YASHIKI's SS items, I think of them as knit polo.
If you ask me, it's a polo shirt, but I think it's full of YASHIKI style, with elegance added to it, and a kimono pattern as a Japanese element.
The above was super subjective.
It seems like he is admonishing us that if we don't look at things objectively as well as subjectively, things will go in the wrong direction.
I have listed a lot of subjective things, but please try YASHIKI's Tsubomi Knit Polo, which has a very good finish not only subjectively but also objectively.
