Noticed in an advertisement for Yebisu Beer is a long-sleeve t-shirt by Julius's basic/sub-brand, MA. The t-shirt has a very recognizable hanging silver bit along the neckline which was used again for a few t-shirts from this season's collection by Julius's mainline. The person in the ad is the very-much-loved actor Tadanobu Asano. Asano has found his way over to the states in a number of exported Japanese films including Zatoichi, Ichi the Killer, Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl, Taste of Tea, and numerous works by the directors Shunji Iwai and Sogo Ishii.
