Design Your Own Uniqlo T-shirt on a Smartphone App

In welcome news for creative souls in Japan, clothing giants Uniqlo have released a smartphone app called “UT me!” which allows users to design their own t-shirt and have it delivered to them for ¥1,990 ($20) plus shipping and tax.

Only those in Japan are able to actually purchase their t-shirts, but you can play around with the app wherever in the world you are.

Have fun trying your own designs or, alternatively, try this app of a cute girl awkwardly staring at you instead.
