Sonic the Hedgehog Winter Wear - Warm Winter Clothing Page 6
|Still more Sonic clothes to keep you warm.
Sonic sweatshirts/hoodies/long sleeved items used to be uncommon in the past, but thanks to the current efforts of Top Heavy Clothing and Hot Topic, this is no longer the case. Warm weather clothing may be more expensive, but the designs are still pretty cool. So if you've got to go out in the cold, it might as well be with some cool Sonic stuff! Check out the many different designs you can collect here, along with listings of where to get them, if known.

|Here are 6 Sonic hoodie sweat shirts straight from the Sega Shop online. They are basically just 3 designs, and the other is a color variant of the first.
The first is "Sonic Rings & Wings" which is classic Sonic in the winged ring balancing a ring on his finger under the logo. These shirts are either a middle-blue or black, with draw string hood.
|The next style is the Sonic Mania logo with colorful stripe in the background. It can be on middle-blue or black simple sweatshirt color. The last is more subtle with a 'chest logo' for Mania, but it has the blue, red & orange character face sihlouettes under it for STK. This is either black or a very dark navy blue to choose from. Each shirt is about 30 dollars & they appear in the summer of 2018 at the Sega Shop online. (They are exclusives to there)
This is a pretty standard selection. None of these bring anything new to the table, so they're a good choice for a casual clothing person or a beginning collector. The Mania items are nice as a celebration for the well liked game.
|Here's a selection of more creative sweatshirts...thanks to Knuckles!
The first one is all red with a 16 bit style Knuckles sprite (facing sideways/profile which is unusual) & the circular slogan "No Time For Games" as well as S&K's year of release. This one has no hood & is just a long sleeve sweat shirt. The next is a bit of subtle fun that's done pretty much right. It's a red hoodie
|with JUST Knuckles' chest crescent white mark on the front. That's it. No branding or logos or slogans. ONLY fans would know what the shirt was, which is great. It doesn't need anything else. It could also be used as a bit of a fan costume of some kind, when paired with other items like the Knuckles fist plush gloves.
The 3rd is all black with the title "Lock On", which doesn't make 100% of sense with the graphic. It's Knuckles but surrouneded by the chaos emeralds & also his debut year in S&K which was 1994.
The 4th is kind of hard to see, but they've used this graphic several times on other items & it's the "Emerald Club" line art. It's in white for the black tee. It's a decent application for the art & looks good large on the front.
The last 2 are just variants of each other, one white & the other black but with the same army-green color for the text and small graphic. It's a military chevron type thing over the word "Hedgehog In Training". These, of course, are for Sonic Forces where everything seems really wierd and boring and military for whatever reason. All of these are 2018 selections.
|Still more 6 sweatshirts from Sega Shop. All of these are 2018 selections. The first two are the same graphic, just on different colored hooded sweat shirts. The first is a dark navy blue, the second a middling gray. The third is white, titled "Colorless Motion", however a better title might have been 'descriptive words' because that's what the design mostly is. It's a black/white Sonic graphic with words that describe him like hedgehog, hero, fast, winner & etc. Some design effort is going on with it, which is nice to see.
The 4th is "Block Black" & it has character sihlouttes with the eyes set in white ink. (Like the 'in the dark' SA1 preview art) But you can spot Tails too.
|Fifth is a design that started at the same time as Mania, the "Emerald Club" (but it features modern style characters) Here, everything's in green & black, made to look like a poster or advertising sign with Sonic, Tails & Knuckles over the fancy font logo. The last is called "Patchwork Tails", probably because the design is supposed to look like a large patch? (It's not patchy in a traditional sense) The design is clearly trying-hard to look "Japanese" with an all red forward-facing Tails face in the off-center of some red rays in a circle. (Red rays, red circles on white backgrounds are associated with the Japanese flag) It then has his name spelled out in Japanese letters around the right edge. Sure, design work is going on here, but it's a little strange and so is the effect of the forward-face but all set in red. All of these are 35 to 40 dollars each.|
|The Sega Shop online store is going wild for winter wear in 2018.
With these additional 6 long sleeve sweat-shirts, you get an only red & black selection. The first is a Sonic & Tails simple logo black zip-front black jacket type. It has the 25th Anniversary logo high on only one side of the chest. It's just white & not that large.
The next 2 shirts are hoodies, both with the "uprising" side's logo in the middle of the chest. They're just a variant of each other, red with tan logo or black with red logo.
The next two are more subtle still...with just the hero side star hidden among some paint stripes. These are variants also either red with tan star or black with red star.
|The last shirt only comes in black with a darker gray design. It's the Eggman Empire / villain side logo with hidden(ish) villian character outlines & a spray paint/shadowy effect. It's interesting to see how subtle they got with some of these, and then to also find a 'bad guys only' sweat shirt. All of these are 35 to 40 dollars each.|
