The Salvation Army in Japan is responding to the earthquake and tsunami that brought devastation to the north of the country. Joshua Smith from ( Hydro74 ) has designed a shirt to help raise funding and awareness for those affected by the disaster. The Japanese Kanji on the shirt translates to “Save World Army”

Rebuild Japan Print

Echoing the style of old World War-esque propaganda posters, this print from the artist Slick is yet another way we’ve found that you can help support those in Japan.  The print combines that message-centric style that was common in wartime decades past with a more current day street-art edge.  Each print is signed and numbered and, really the best news of all, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to support the cause.  So, show your support and your style with one on your wall, but place that order soon because there are only 100 and we’ve got a feeling they are gonna go quick. $40

Monocle Support Japan Bracelet
Accessorizing doesn’t necessarily have to mean walking out your door looking like a rockstar. That isn’t always a bad thing anyways, but decking yourself out in skulls and chains is never work appropriate. If you’re looking to mancessorize, a quality bracelet can add just the right amount of style – without putting your meal ticket at risk – and we have the perfect bracelet for you. The Monocle Support Japan Bracelet is produced using leather from tanneries in the Miyagi region, where the earthquake and tsunami ravaged Japan. One side is embossed “Support Japan,” the other “Brooklyn Tokyo x Monocle.” Contrast stitching and adjustable button fastening complete the made in Japan, for Japan, package. One more way to help, and this time you can up your style game in the process. $16
