Metal Gear Rising Shirts From UNIQLO
Popular Japanese clothing retailer UNIQLO are launching a Metal Gear Rising line on February 18th to celebrate the release of the game. These shirts are awesome. I love gaming shirts that are really nicely done.
UNIQLO has previously done other really great Metal Gear Solid related clothing. However with their only US shop being in New York City and with many of their MGS shirts hard to find online, you may have a bit of trouble getting one. However, if the rumors are true, a UNIQLO store will soon be opening in Philly.

Studio Ghibli Meets Street Fighter
What would happen if there were an 8-Bit fighter for the NES called Spirit Fighter featuring different characters from Studio Ghibli movies? Planet earth would be way more awesome, that’s what!
Too bad it’s not a real game, but it’s a sweet shirt designed by Drew Wise and you can get it from The Yetee for just $11. Then wear it while you learn how to make a game exactly like this so I can play the living potatoes out of it.

Design Friendwithyou’s Next Shirt
Friendswithyou’s online shop has beed down for a few months now, and they didn’t make it to the Designer Toy Awards, so it’s good to hear they’re still alive and kicking. Blank You Very Much and Friendswithyou are hosting a contest that lets fans create FWY’s next shirt. Just download the assets and template here and get designing. The deadline is November 5.

Swarovski Studded Foxhound T-shirt & Metal Gear Rising Watch
Kojima tweeted pics of the Swarovski Foxhound shirt and Metal Gear Rising ‘Wired’ watch from Seiko designed by MGS series artist Yoji Shinkawa. While the Foxhound tee is a bit too bling-bling for my tastes, that watch is pretty boss.
Fact: Game designer Hideo Kojima is one classy-ass, well-dressed dude.
Case in point:
‘Hitman’ x Complex x Orisue For The Agent 47 Initiative
To celebrate the release of Hitman: Absolution, Complex has teamed up with streetwear label Orisue to produce this limited edition tee for the Agent 47 Initiative capsule collection inspired by Agent 47’s assassin gear and the Latin motto of The Agency – Merces Letifer (Lethal Trade). This tee’s available exclusively from Karmaloop. A Neff snapback hat and Flud watch will be added to the collection later this year. We’ll keep you posted.
Sanrio x Street Fighter Is Go
Sanrio have finally launched their line of Street Fighter shirts and accessories. There are plenty of characters to choose from in both men’s and women’s cuts. I’m having a tough time choosing between Blanka / Keroppi and Zangief / Purin. Also, enter “STREETFIGHTER” (minus the quotes) in the promotion code box at checkout to get a set of awesome pins.
Glassjaw x Stussy Shirts
Stussy and Glassjaw have teamed up to make these two shirts to commemorate the tenth anniversary shows for Worship & Tribute. The shows are at 12AM and 7PM this Sunday. The black one will be available at the show and the gray one will be available at Stussy.com. Each is limited to 93 shirts.
I’m having quite the dilemma. Do I go for a front row view, or do I rush to the merch table to get one of these? I’m going to both shows so maybe I should go for the merch at the first show and the front row at the second.
A Bathing Ape x Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man Collection
You know what’s cool? Crossovers. Batman and Superman. Wolverine and Hulk. Debbie and Dallas. Adding to the list of rad crossovers is The Amazing Spider-Man collection from Hong Kong/Japanese label A Bathing Ape and Marvel Comics consisting of super fresh tees, mesh snapbacks, and a tote.
Bapes Amazing Spider-Man collection drops Saturday, July 14th.
Fall tokidoki Clothes Are Go
It’s not even July yet, but clothing brands are launching their Fall 2012 already, and that includes tokidoki. The ladies made out a bit better that the guys this season. There are plenty of designs that I’d love to have seen on men’s shirts, especially the Hot Tamale one. The men’s cardigan sweater that was in the Fall 2012 preview isn’t for sale yet, but I’ll be picking that one up once it is.
Also, if you spend $75 at tokidoki.it by July 8, you’ll get a free Fourth of July tote bag.
