Late April Fools: Konami Announces Metal Gear Solid Clothing Line for Men
…Except it’s not a joke, and it’s completely serious. Konami today announced a new clothing line based off designs found in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. While it’ll include some clothing adorned with various Peace Walker images and logos, apparently the line will also feature “coats, sweatshirts, pants, t-shirts and hats, all inspired by clothing worn by characters in game.”
Now, I’m all about looking at protagonists in various video games and thinking, “man, those threads totally look funky-fresh on that hepcat!”, but it’s an entirely different thing wearing them in real life and being proud of it. Solid Snake’s jacket looks downright slick on him, but the look doesn’t exactly lend itself well to a thin Asian manchild with long hair.
No word yet on the official Kingdom Hearts line; rumors are that it’s physically impossible to put that many zippers onto clothing and have it not fall apart.
