The Japanese publication Men’s Non-No shows, in its January 2010 issue, that you don’t need a scantily-clad babe on the cover to sell magazines. Cartoons can be just as attractive. The latest issue sports a cover illustrated by manga artist Eiichiro Oda (尾田 栄一郎) of One Piece fame. The featured character is the pirate Monkey D. Luff (also known as Straw Hat Luffy), the lead from the said series. He wears a colour-blocked jacket by Sophnet, one of Monocle magazine’s favourite Japanese menswear labels. Manga fans will argue that Monkey D. Luff does not need such fashionable gear (he becomes a superhero not unlike Mister Fantastic when he eats the ‘gum-gum fruit’ that lend his body the properties of rubber), but even cartoon characters do need the occasional sartorial makeover. Son Goku (Dragon Ball) next?
