It’s that time of year again and I’m not talking about Valentines Day which is coming by the way. What I am referencing is the A Bathing Ape Pirate Store. For those of you unfamiliar with the Pirate Store, here is a quick run down. Every year, BAPE has a huge sale which runs for at least a week. During this sale, you can get all sorts of BAPE products at discounted prices, as well as exclusive BAPE Pirate Store items which will only be sold during the duration of the sale. Think of it like boxing day for BAPE. As usual with any big sale event, the lines are huge and the stock sells out quick. In order to keep the madness out of the BAPE stores, the BAPE Pirate Stores are always held at a different location in the city. However, this year the UK BAPE Pirate Store is going to take place in the official BAPE Store.
Starting January 27th 2012 and running until February 5th 2012, the A Bathing Ape Pirate Store will be opened in the UK. The location has been released and will be at 4 Upper James Street, London W1F 9DG, U.K. You can call them at +44-20-7434-2541 although you won’t be able to reserve anything. The store will open at 12pm noon on Friday, January 27th so make sure to take the day off and get there early to get a good spot in the line.
There are currently seven different BAPE Pirate Store UK t-shirt designs. The t-shirts are £50.00 for each shirt. The supplies are limited so if you want them badly, make sure to get there early on the first day. You could get all seven for £350 which is a good deal when it comes to BAPE t-shirts.
The current A Bathing Ape Pirate Store t-shirt design styles are:
- White t-shirt with the BAPE Pirate Store logo
- White t-shirt with red font saying Baby Milo with Baby Milo’s head and two cross bones in the middle of the text
- Black t-shirt with Baby Milo’s head wearing a pirate hat and an eye patch. There are two pirate swords crossing each other behind his head and the text A Bathing Ape Pirate Store around the head
- White t-shirt with the BAPE gorilla head logo wearing a pirate hat and two crossbones crossed below the logo. No text on this one.
- White t-shirt with Baby Milo’s head and two crossbones crossed below his head. The text Pirate is on one crossbone and Store is on the other. The text above Baby Milo’s head says Baby Milo and below his head it says A Bathing Ape.
- Black t-shirt with the A Bathing Ape gorilla head logo and two pirate swords crossing each other at the base of the logo. There is text on the swords with one saying Pirate and the other saying Store. The logo is over the upper left chest area where pockets would normally be on a button up shirt.
- Black t-shirt with text only saying A Bathing Ape Pirate Store.

One thing that is very important is that the BAPE Pirate Store sale will only accept cash purchases. This is to keep the line moving as quickly as possible when getting to the checkout. Make sure to get to the bank and withdraw your money ASAP or you will feel mighty stupid standing in the store ready to make your purchase and being told you can’t because you don’t have the cash.
We have been on vacation the past couple months working on some projects but will be back to the full time reporting.
For now, accept this new BAPE Halloween wallpaper as a token of appreciation for your patience.
Enjoy, and Happy Hallowe’en.

I’ve always thought Baby Milo would make a good video game character. Too bad it didn’t happend when BAPE and Nintendo teamed up to release the BAPE Nintendo DS. Well, the wait is over. I have found two flash based games (Sorry iPhone/iPad users). The first game is the Baby Milo Memory Game. The object of the game is to remember a pattern that you are shown. The icons will be shown to you and will then disappear. You need to use the icons on the right side bar and drag them into their proper spots. You will have about a minute to do so, so you must be quick. The game gets harder as you go along. Good luck!

BAPE Gallery – Baby Milo Cosmos Art Exhibiton
You might remember the BAPE Gallery from my earlier post about the BAPE Study Exhibiton posted in March last year (holy crap, I can’t believe it has been a year!). Now there is a new exhibition, which is the Baby Milo Cosmos art exhibit. The exhibit features Baby Milo as an astronaut in space or the cosmos. What is great about this exhibit is that there is a lot of different sized art that can be purchased. Some of the art is huge, and is over 5 feet long, and 5 feet tall, and then some are smaller. So, no matter how much wall space you have; you should be able to find something that fits.
Milo Cosmos Clothing and Accessories
If your not into art, there is also a ton of other BAPE Milo Cosmos items. Currently, the Milo Cosmos themed items are coffee tumblers, clip on mini baby milo character in his astronaut suit, a carry bag, and some awesome looking BAPE cosmo themed iPhone skins.. The BAPE Baby Milo Cosmos clothing items are denim shorts, polo shirts for men and women, and eight different tshirts.
