Editor’s Notes: For its latest capsule, BAPE has tapped cartoon icon Popeye the Sailor to join ranks with its Baby Milo and Ape Head graphics. Introduced as a comic strip character in 1929 and becoming a much-loved cartoon later, Popeye was our parents’ best bet at getting us to eat spinach when we were kids.

The drop features a selection of T-shirts and hoodies bearing Popeye (and his beloved Oliver Oyl), complete with sailor’s cap, smoking pipe, and signature can of spinach. Across the capsule, BAPE's own iconography is given a Popeye- and sailing-centric makeover.

Additional items include a number of accessories such as a plushie and keyring, as well as a clock and tote decked out in panels from the original comic strip and Bape Ape Head branding.

For those interested, the BAPE x Popeye collection will be available at all BAPE Japan stores from June 30. Let us know if you plan to cop in the comments below.
