Didn't you hear? Sega T-shirts are trendy now!

This is pretty old-ish news, anyone who follows Sega related stuff around to no abandon like I do (or just anyone who visits gaming blogs in general) may of already seen these fancy Sega T-Shirts from Japan that are now being sold on London's oxford street in fancy pants clothes shops are generally infested with trendy skinny types with jeans down to their toes. Now you may just end up seeing them walking about with Sonic, Virtua Fighter characters or House of the Dead Zombies hanging from their scrawny hairless chests.


If you decide to hunt these down, you can grab them from a shop called UNIQLO, who have about three stores on oxford street alone, and they'll set you back £13 each or 2 for £20, which doesn't seem like a bad deal for tastefully done game shirt designs with brilliant blocky polygon blokes on them. You can't miss one of these stores as it has huge manga art on the windows at the moment. Of course, you could always just buy them online if you don't want to go mincing around London. More after the jump.




With this and the classic Sonic the Hedgehog line of stuff going on this year, there seems to be quite a lot of loving for Sega going on around here. I for one welcome a craze of Sega branded retro junk, after having nothing but Nintendo stuff in stores for years on end.


Thanks goes to Perks for the info and photos.saves me the effort of awkwardly snapping photos when no one is looking at me wondering how sad I am taking photos of t-shirts containers.


Speaking of fancy designer Sega t-Shirts, another load from japan can now be bought online from a site called King of Games, and these ones are even more "retro" than the Virtua Fighter ones, based on games like Outrun, Fantasy Zone and After Burner. They're quite a bit more expensive at £24, though they're rather funky, although the After Burner design is a bit cack. Gotta love the Master System theme going through out these ones.

Oh, don't worry, I had my friend with me who was all too happy to point out the sadness...

I went in that shop last month and they had Kimba and Astro Boy tshirts in these pots. No Sega stuff though.
