Support Your Inner Snake With Surprisingly Stylish Metal Gear T-Shirts



Many videogame-related clothes are what you could call tacky at best, but these Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker T-Shirts are actually kind of cool-looking.

I have to admit, when I think about official game-related apparel, the first sort of thing that comes to mind is clothing like the MGS: Peace Walker T-Shirts [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/93412-Marc-Ecko-Creates-the-Worlds-Ugliest-Halo-T-Shirts] created by Japanese clothier Uniqlo are actually ... kind of cool.

Personally, I think that my favorite is Che Guevara T-Shirt [http://www.uniqlo.co.uk/catalogue/men/ut-metal-gear-solid/421776-red-metal-gear-solid-printed-ss-t-shirt-i] that is a favorite of college students everywhere.

The shirts aren't too pricey at all (just under $20/£13), and can be either ordered from the online site or from the Uniqlo flagship store in Manhattan's Soho district [http://www.uniqlo.com/us/stores/ny_soho_store.html]. One is probably much easier than the other.

"I died fighting capitalism so that a bunch of college kids could buy a t-shirt with my face on it."

These shirts look great, if I owned a portal to Japan I'd go buy one.

HE STANDS FOR FREEDOM! SILENCE YOU DOG!

OT: The one with the businessman and his cardboard box is awesome.

those look surprisingly stylish. I like the 'Incinerate' one from bioshock better though.

Huh, they're pretty cheap. Worth a buy? Maybe. I have far too many shirts and far too little money though. I need my Marvel TPBs more than I need clothing!

[sup]Or hot water and food, for that matter. Spider-Man Noir just looks too good to miss...[/sup]

Except it's not Solid Snake...
Big Boss' other code name was Naked Snake.
my bad
and it being code for naked snake works even better in the double-entendre.

Like I enjoy telling them: "Che Guevara would have you shot for wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt."

well you were both right if you think about it as they are technically the same person (due to solid snake being a clone)

These printed t-shirts are really cool, UNIQLO have made some great collaborations over the years, particularly when it comes to their UT t-shirts
