Here’s another installment of some Japanese-English I heard recently. “ペアルック” or matching clothes in English is often used to describe a couple who dresses in matching fashion. While I understand the Japanese-English, I’m sure if you said it to a foreigner, they might just look at you with a strange look. Another example is “リサイクルショップ” or secondhand store or thrift store in English. While recycle shop totally makes sense, again, it’s a word we just don’t use in English. There are plenty of recycle shops in Japan, but you’ll only find secondhand stores in other countries.
