Hirogato = tightshop? Any reviews and opinions?

Postby secretfascination » Mon Dec 07, 2020 1:23 pm

Hello everyone. I'm new here but I've been trying to find a community in an attempt to find high quality zentai (other than fets fash). (A little offtopic but is there a list/search function that I can find of other peoples' reviews and communities?)

I came across [url]hirogato.com[/url], and I've placed an order for a basic shiny spandex catsuit, and upon payment completion the processor indicates Stefan Engelhardt - SKR*tightshop.net.

Now, I'm doing some extra due diligence and those names have cropped up before, but in reference to tightshop - and it has me worried. Even the sizing is exactly the same.

Is hirogato masquerading as a different front, even though the commenter from their YouTube profile claims to be Hiro from Osaka? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-3umtqn0FI&ab_channel=CeleneNox

Does anyone have any experiences of: firstly, hirogato service, products and quality; secondly - if they are indeed connected to tightshop - should I attempt refund/dispute? Thanks

I've made one order from Hiro Gato in late 2019 which was shipped directly to a model.

I paid through PayPal and the recipient name was weird there too, it was a different person with a German surname not Stefan. (Tightshop was German and also owned the tightfun .de domain)

The order hadn't shipped after a month. I contacted support and was answered by another different person with a German surname.

I got tracking info... Was expecting it to say Germany at this point but no, it appeared to originate in Japan! I forgot to ask the model if the package really seemed to be from Japan unfortunately. When it arrived the suit was well-constructed and the fabric (regular shiny lycra) was very nice. Unfortunately the mask option was a Japanese single-panel style that's very prone to crushing noses. The neck was a bit shapeless. This was surprising because the rest of the fit is very good. Their crotch zippers are also very long, probably 12" compared to the typical 6" or so.

I reckon your stuff might be late but it'll probably ship. Which IIRC was typical tightshop, up until near the end. Since they're still actively adding new garments and materials it's probably safe for now.

I was going to buy some of their bodysuits, but in the last few months they started putting that stupid cat head icon on everything. I don't want that on a piece any more than I'd want a "morphsuit" logo. Funnily enough, will be sticking to Fets Fash.

(I wonder if the "Gato" is in Hiro Gato because it's the Spanish for cat but also sounds like a Japanese name.)
