Titty & Co Tokyo

ティティー&コ—

Titty Japan


Lumine Est is an 8-floor fashion building that is one of the main players in Tokyo's Shinjuku shopping scene.

I was there on the weekend looking for a decent bakery (none to be had there, but some good ones in nearby Takashimaya), and my eye alighted on the above sign advertising the B1 floor shops - drawn to it by the shop called "titty & Co."

Japan is well-known for its zany English, but a women's clothing store with a strip joint name? I'd expect to find something like that over in the red light district of Kabukicho, not here.

Titty & Co. is a clothing store for women selling attire that is not, actually, very "titty" at all. If anything it all looked a bit on the cutey, punky (read "flat-chested") side of fashion. You'd expect a name a little more on target than that from a shop whose parent company is called Precision Co. Ltd.

However, they seem to be doing fine. According to Titty & Co.'s website, there are no less than eleven stores for the brand, in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo.

What? So there's something wrong with being flat chested? Disgusting. Why can't you Japanophiles write something without being sexist douchebags?

Hi Buffy, this post associates a lack of buxomness with being young, i.e. cuteness, youth-fashion. There is nothing here that could be construed as criticism or dislike of small breasts. The fashion on display in "Titty & Co." did not feature the kind of dresses that accentuate breasts - that's all.
