Yanagida Hands On Review

by AndyRocksBluu on November 10, 2012

Hey everyone it’s AndyRocksBluu and I’m very excited to bring you a hands on review on a new clothing brand based out of California called Yanagida. Yanagida better known as YGDA was started as a custom label/trim company and decided to branch out to making their own brand. YGDA have worked with Diamond, Rocksmith, Dope Couture, and tons of other brands helping with their branding, trim and accessories. In case you were wondering YGDA stands for killer whale and has the tag line “top of the food chain”. If you like what you hear so far then Dive into my full review.

Design 3.5 out of 5.0

I like the two designs that Yanagida brings to the table. Both T-shirts are simple and clean graphics. However as much as I like these designs there really is nothing special about it. My favorite T-shirt out of the two happens to be the YGDA logo tee.

Price $32- $38 (High End)

I know the price tag might turn some people away but YGDA definitely goes through hoops to prove that their product is worth the price. YGDA did an amazing job of adding eye-catching details to their products. However you can get a full explanation in the presentation category.

P.S. when I got my package it came with a handful of buttons and YGDA logo key chains. Trust me….You want the key chains.

Quality 4.5 out of 5.0

I’m proud to say that YGDA did a fantastic job in the Quality Category. Both t-shirt’s felt buttery soft and fit me like a glove. Another thing I’m happy to see on these t-shirt’s are woven neck tags. In my personal opinion, I always feel that woven neck tags make a brand look more established.

Presentation 4.5 out of 5.0

YGDA hands down blew me away when it came to the category of Presentation. Each t-shirt came with three hem tags that explained what YGDA stood for and the date the company was started: this added another level of branding to the t-shirts. The good people at YGDA also added cool hangtags and limited YGDA coins that you can collect and trade in for rare limited YGDA pieces!! I personally thought that was a nice touch. This small attention to detail really separates them from the dozens of clothing lines out there.

Overall 4.0 out of 5.0 – Great

Yanagida is a solid brand with a very bright future. I can’t wait to see what they release! You check them out on
