What is Bape?
For those who are wondering and/or just stumble upon this website Bape, or A Bathing Ape is a Japanese clothing brand started by Nigo in 1993. Bape is a very popular brand in Japan and it targets the Japanese youth. Bape became popular in North America (and other parts of the world) because of popular entertainers or celebrities (mainly Rap artist) wearing the brand. Bape clothing are very difficult to find and buy because of limited production and only a few stores exist around the world.
Due to the brand rarity and high demand, the usual cost for a Bape clothing or shoes are in the price range of low to high $xxx (and sometimes HIGHER!). Also because of this there is A LOT of Counterfeit Bape and replica item in circulation. Counterfeit Bape are typically known as "Fape" a combination of the word "Bape" and "fake."
Bape brand has now expanded its market and now operates Bape Sounds, Bape Cafe, Bape Cuts, Bape TV etc. They have also partnered with many popular and upcoming brands and artists also known as Bape collaborations.
