27 Muji Products So Perfect, They Make Us Feel Like Design Geniuses

In Tokyo a couple falls ago, I was having lunch with my brother when I dropped a tiny piece of brown sauce–dipped tonktasu on my shirt. Of course, my hand-eye coordination abysmal, I overcompensated trying to catch it and just smeared it into my shirt even further. Miles away from our hotel, I didn’t want to walk around the entire day looking like I had just used my clothes as toilet paper, so I stopped into the nearest 7-Eleven and bought a simple white T-shirt to change into.

The entire rest of that day I felt like a god. What soft cotton! What neat seams! What stylish design and cut and color! What casual, life-affirming comfort.
