A Tokkōfuku is essential for the Mad Max Street Style. Tokkōfuku translates to Special Attack Uniform. That means any clothing/gear you wear for combat. Even if that means bombing the kanjo. Sometimes they may look plain, but wearing it shows an image of readiness and preparedness to get dirty if your car breaks down, and/or to show that you take your work seriously with pure passion. “I put in work so much I never take it off” -type of look.
Originating from the days of WWII fighter pilots of Japan, some add slogans referring to the past on their Tokkōfuku. Many pilots of the past would carry charms and amulets with them as well…
With the various colors that members of PVTANTRA have, we commonly go with the Navy Blue boiler suit. The color represents the working man, especially the blue collar field. Also, oil stains and dirt hide pretty well with this color.
Real G shit:
Miura-San wears a plain jumper with little to no patches and slogans on it. Because his skills and knowledge speaks for him. Let yours speak for you as well.✌️🙏
In my early days of PVT, I was just Max (not even Mad yet). Like in the beginning of the first film, before he tried to take a vacation… then things started to turn him MAD.
Being a Road Warrior is having little to no ammo yet still carry your gun, and use it as a melee weapon… even willing to use your teeth to rip off an arm. Having bad shot gun shells and still somehow find a way to make use of them.
This is a state of mind, a mentality. It’s all part of the MAD MAX STREET STYLE.
Dirtiness is a natural sign you’re a true wastelander in heart. An attribute to the Mad Max street style.
The article mentioned BOB Racing. Them cats are OG’s. Ran on the kanjo before Civic’s.
The lives that used to live in those days are pure nostalgia. Some people live in that state of nostalgia for the rest of their lives. Kei Miura for example, “in his yellow afro and ripped jeans, reminiscing about the ‘yancha’ bosozoku past that he’s never fully outgrown.” Along with many Kanjozoku & Bosozoku. That type of nostalgia enhances their wellbeing. If you have that type of nostalgia, never lose that. Never let nostalgia become a form of depression. Always be inspired, not tired.
Look back at your life 10-20 years ago. Were you who you are today? Or are you different now? What ever it may be, it couldn’t have happened any other way. As a kid I had a dream and that shit came true. I’m living it right now. ✌️📿🙏📿
Special Attack Uniform. The clothing that many Bosozoku wear.
Some folks are Bosozoku “enthusiast”. I say enthusiast because they aren’t full fledge Bosozoku, but a hooligan one way or another. The ones who are like that may not rock a complete Tokkōfuku with phrases and symbols, but may wear a coverall to represent what they are about (kanjozoku’s & Kei Miura for example). I fall into that category as well. Over the past 12 years I have accumulated quite a few coveralls along with vintage ones from the military. Whenever I go on a PVT run I wear one; an act to bomb the night.
One thing is many Bosozoku drive cars. It’s quite uncomfortable (I can drive with them on but don’t prefer it) to drive in boots, especially a manual car (Nike SB Dunks is my choice of shoes for my Tokkōfuku). From my research I found out which boots, particularly with Kei Miura, wears. They are Red Wing Engineer boots. And from reviews they are quite comfortable and easy to drive in!
Time for some custom work on the coveralls so they can be certified Tokkōfuku… Stay tuned!
