Japan-based Cav Empt is the brainchild of designer Sk8thing (formerly of BAPE). The graphics and motifs of the brand feature ironic meanings often with wry social commentary in a style that harkens back to early '90s hacker culture. Cav Empt itself is a shortened form of the Latin phrase "caveat emptor," or "let the buyer beware." The Design Lighter T-Shirt, features printed Sk8thing graphic artwork on the front and back with signature Cav Empt cryptic meaning.
