Konami Tries Its Hand at Metal Gear Solid Fashion

The Peace Walker inspired clothing is surprisingly stylish, but unfortunately, it's for men only.

Dressing up like characters from the Metal Gear games is about to get a whole lot easier, following the announcement that Konami plans to release a clothing line passed on the PSP prequel Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

The line, which will be available online in the US and Canada on April 11th, includes a couple of t-shirts with Peace Walker and Fox Hound logos, as well as jackets, trousers, and hats lifted straight from the game itself. The clothes look surprisingly good; so good in fact, that they're the sort of thing you could wear in everyday life without drawing any funny looks. Unfortunately, all the clothes are designed for the male Metal Gear fan, so the ladies are out of luck. Hopefully, Konami will rectify this soon.

The clothing line is the result of a partnership between Konami and Musterbrand LLC, a global licensing and merchandising company based in New York. Careen Yapp, Konami VP of Acquisitions and Franchise Development, said that the success of Peace Walker had allowed Konami to go beyond what it would normally do with a Metal Gear game. In a press release, Konami indicated that this was just the beginning of the line, and that more clothes would be added quarterly, and around special events during the year.

There are no details available on how much this stuff is likely to cost, but chances are it won't be cheap. Some of the range is really rather nice though, so it might be worth saving up your pennies.

"Metal Gear Gear?"

That looks really awesome! I would also wear all that stuff shown in public as just regular clothes. I hope that these aren't a limited print

what no Eyepatch or Bandana?

Ron Jeremy probably sells ones in his infomercials

I totally want that Foxhound shirt.

I'd buy the hat. Definitely!

Still waiting for Octocamo. Of course, if anything like that came out, it would have to have a warning label about putting it in microwaves (the darkest warning label since the Superman cape one warning you that it doesn't allow you to fly).

I like that coat, so I do...

but frankly if a mass Effect hoodie costs like sixty squids, I shudder at how much Metal Gear fans will be being fleeced.

I like the pants, shirt and hat, but I DO WANT that jacket.......

please dont be a limited run, and please let them be reasonably priced, I have a Levi mil-hat like the one here that I only paid $12 USD for, and I would probably cry if I need to spend ~$150 for everything.

but in the end.... I love metal gear so much that I would have to buy it, guess I wont be eating for a few weeks ._.

Not really to my taste, apart from that shirt and possibly the hat (for my non-afro periods), though it better come in Euro medium and not have a cosmically high price tag.

MOAR!!!!! xD
let the chickas have some fun too though!

I want the cargo pants, the cap and the FOXHOUND shirt... Hopefully my measly salary can afford it.

...I'd like to have a few of those...

Sneak Suit, or I aint buying shit.

I'm waiting for the Gray Fox suit

With the new Metal Gear Solid line, you, too, can look like a bland, khaki-wearing Korean commando.

I have to say, I think the STALKER: SoC clothing looks better.

OH GOD YES!

I'll take one of everything!

I like all the shirts and the jacket, but I wouldn't mind a different colour to the grey and a orange fox logo...and maybe for them to come out in ENGLAND *RANT*

Being a complete MGS nerd, this made my day.

Or at least, it would have done, were they available in the UK.

Also, until they release Revolver Ocelot's jacket I'm not going to squee.

Yeah, I bet all the ladies are really looking forward to the MGS Bra and the zipperless flight suit.

Fits perfectly when you think about it. No cookies for guessing why.

Crawl in the ventilation shafts a few times and you'll gain access to their line of women's underwear.

I think the jacket alone is going to run from more than 150.

Nice shirt and cap.

Wait, why can't women wear this? The coat might be a bit loose around the shoulders, but I don't see why they can't wear them. I guess it's not very sexy, I suppose... I guess women's clothing is required to be sexy.

It's more that women's clothing should really fit properly. It's not that women couldn't wear any of this stuff - obviously they could - but the cut of the clothes is for men.
