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

image

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 horribly ugly Halo T-Shirts from Marc Ecko. But these MGS: Peace Walker T-Shirts created by Japanese clothier Uniqlo are actually ... kind of cool.

Personally, I think that my favorite is this one, if only because it's such a (almost certainly deliberate) hilarious send-up of the iconic Che Guevara T-Shirt 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. One is probably much easier than the other.

A favorite of college studens who have no idea who Che Guevara was or what he stood for.

"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 models have no idea what MGS is. I hate models.

The tees look pretty damn cool though :D

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

Che-Big Boss-Guvera o_o

I'll take a look at these shirts later, they seem to look nice 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!

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

Wow, those shirts are pretty amazing

that looks awesome
I want Big Boss t-shirt

I could imagine walking down the street with a t-shirt that has BIG BOSS boldly printed on the front.

Hehe, pretty cool merch...I would love to get one if I ever get the spare cash! Especilly the Hugo Chavez-eqse one

Who would not want solid snake on your chest?

well there is a double-entendre right there!

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
