Sonic Clothing of the USA- Modern Page 13
This page should have 2010 and 2011 Sonic clothes.
The USA is still in the golden-age of Sonic clothing, mainly shirts. Watch for great new stock art (From Sega) to appear on these shirts. Top Heavy, with licensing from ShoPro seems to be producing less in 2011, but is still active. Both little and big sizes will likely continue. Little sizes are still ok to collect, even if you don't fit into them, because you can still fit the shirt into a frame if you like the design to make it like a poster. Primary stores here will be Sears and Kohls. However, it should be noted that Wal Mart, JC Penny, Hot Topic, and FYE are also getting into carrying Sonic shirts. GKWorld & BioWorld may also be getting into shirts as well! You can also shop at TopHeavy Clothing Online now.

Vortex Purple Dark Wisp Nom Shirt These two shirts are 'borderline' shirts, once again from SharkRobot. They aren't particularly licensed/copyrighted it seems, but are also somewhat generic in some way to skirt past that. At left is a "Vortex Wisp" from Sonic Colors (that one that 'eats' stage obstacles & etc when activated. It's basically just a Wordy Hero Sonic Words Shirt
'scary face' though, so it becomes sort of an inside joke on the tee, with the words "OM NOM NOM" written next to it, and some paint spatter effect. The right shirt is "A Wordy Hero" which uses various "Sonic Describing" words colored & shaped together to make a sort of image of him. Notice the expression isn't spot on, and neither are the hands, as official art doesn't seem to have been used for this. The bottom right shirt shows a glow/sihlouette type 'back of classic Sonic' with a large ring, so it's somewhat abstract. These are all creative designs which you can find at Discovered by Taaron Sonic back ring Shirt Design
JC Penny Black Gray Checker Sonic
This black tee is likely to be exclusive to JC Penny stores. It's somewhat 'older' looking with the very much used "grunge checkers" background, this time in gray. The art is very SA1 era as well, with the somewhat-action-posed Sonic quite large on the front. This will be in the boys/teens section, for about 9.99. It appears in winter (oddly enough) 2012. Discovered by Taaron
Sonic Shadow Tails Black Mens T-Shirt Here's an all-black tee with the interesting combination of Sonic, Shadow & Tails (all in their newer poses) with the modern logo. The good thing is, this comes in mens' sizes, so it should fit anyone! But where do you buy it? Stars CG Sonic Character Art Shirt This shirt is "Under Suspicion" found on ebay, and 'available in many sizes' is usually a red flag, but the art has good background, is laid out well, uses the logo & has a copyright on it. But where's the tag? What company made this interesting design?
Old School Sepia / Brown Shirt Top Heavy This shirt is likely a 2010 or 2011 design, and is variation on another seen among these USA Sonic Clothing pages. This one is all sepia tone, on brown tee. It says "Old School" in a somewhat 1970s styled font, with classic running Sonic stock art on arch/stripes. This seems to be meant to give it a look a bit older than Sonic actually is, but thankfully it does not use the 'fake wear' to the design. Note the "Top Heavy" tag in the collar.
Color Changing Sonic T-Shirt Color changing coolness!
Check out this great tee! The shirt is a dark plum-purple color (photographs badly) is it the first dark purple Sonic shirt? That's not all that's new about it though. See how Tails, Knuckles & the "SONIC" word are gray & white? When the sun shines on it, everything changes to the real color! This means the art looks cool both ways, but sun adds a real surprise. This shirt has the sticker (right) on it
Color Change Shirt Sticker Example
somewhere whn you fin it in the store. (usually covers up Knuckles) Is this the first color changing Sonic item? It's certainly the first for clothing. How well does color change ink do when you have to wash it?
This shirt can be found in Wal Mart in winter 2012, and only costs about 6.47! Super bargain...might want to get more than 1. It's in "Boys/teens" but the sizes are fairly liberal. Not everyone will fit into it, but it's not little-kiddie either. The printed 'label' in the back is another of those logo/no-label things so whatever company is doing it sort of anonymously. This shirt is in the SonicGear collection.
Zara Pink Sonic Tee This is a simple & normal looking tee...except for the fact that the whole thing is pink. It is classicly styled, with a large Sonic right on the edge, which is a nice bit of design/helps make it stand out. The logo is on the sleeve, which is another nice touch. This is likely to be a Zara exclusive , which is a clothing store. Available in 2012. Discovered by Taaron 3 Hedgehogs Orange Kids Tee Here's another shirt with the 3 hedgehogs theme (same design too) only this one is bright orange. Likely a
'little-er' kids only size tee. Not confirmed in boys/teens.
Kohls Checker Stripe Tee
This shirt is listed as a 2012 late summer /fall offering from Kohls stores. Their designs tend to be exclusive to that particular store too, though it often has sales/discount mailers, so that's something to look for if you want this tee. It's all gray, with varying size light blue stripes, black 'grunge' style checkered area and turning pose modern Sonic nice and big for the design. It's a tad standard, but a good, solid & colorful design if you don't already have something that resembles it. This should be in the boys/teens section of the store, so it may fit most people. Note the Kohls paper tag & printed tag in the back of the shirt collar.
Speed Player Shorts Set Is this a pajama or just a regular clothing set? It is labeled as a "Sport Set" but since it's soft cloth it could probably be used for both. It has a red top with blue borders that has a nicely shaded neo-classic Sonic jumping, his name in a new font, some stars and "Speed Player" written at the bottom. The shorts are blue with red trim, but don't appear to have any Sonic features on them. This set is from WalMart, and comes in kid sizes from XSmall through Large. Info added by SonicExia
Sound Effects Gray Mens Sonic Shirt This is a men's size tee that's fairly plain & simple. It's mottled gray, with simple red Sonic logo. It uses the old 'getting ready to run' classic Sonic stock art and then attempts to 'decorate' the shirt with little starburst shapes that have sound effects written in them like "Brang, Bloop & Bang". Why?
Sonic was never really associated with being super noisy, or being able to spell out his distinctive sounds. (Getting a ring, etc) Plus, did anything ever actually go "Bloop" in any of his games? It just seems sort of out of place on a shirt. Where is this shirt sold? How much is it? It's an ok shirt if you don't have several similar ones already.
Glowing Lines Sonic Tee This shirt glows in the dark!
Does it look familiar to you? It might, because it's actually a remake of an earlier shirt, which you can see here on Modern USA Clothing. This one is pretty much identical, except for the fact that with this one, they've replaced the hot colored paint with glowing paint for the lines. The little sticker says "This Shirt GLOWS". The tag is odd, in that it's classic Sonic while the design is modern. This is by Bioworld. This can be found at JC Penny in spring 2012 for 9.99. This shirt is in the SonicGear personal collection.
Sonic Blaze Knuckles Shadow Tee
Here's a great shirt for Blaze fans.
Blaze is the only other character other than Sonic to have a full-body pose for this tee. Shadow & Knuckles profiles appear, but they're sort of 'floating' among the colors of the background. The various streaks are actually lots of tiny colored dots that blend the colors into one another. It's an interesting background that brightens up the shirt and helps it stand out. This is available at Sears in the boys/teens area in spring 2012, and should be about 9 dollars. The tag is another one of those 'classic tag with modern shirt' deals that only says 'Sega' on the back. This shirt is in the SonicGear personal collection.
Old Navy Modern Character Squares Tee Check out this great shirt from Old Navy!
It's one of the 2 shirts they started offering in 2012. Old Navy had 'character tees' before, but this is one of the first Sonic themed ones, and it's great. It uses modern CG art for the characters, so all the poses are fresh. Each character is in a colored square, but part of the character overlaps the edge of the square to add interest. Then, since there are 9 squares, there's a great variety for who they feature. You get: Sonic Tails Knuckles Silver Shadow Metal Sonic! Eggman! Big and Vector (interestingly enough). Metal & Eggman are rare to see on tees, so if you're a fan, grab this one! This is at Old Navy in spring/summer 2012 & also likely in the SonicGear Clothing Store as, ON has chosen to sell there, for some reason. (also a recent development...likely a good idea too if a local store sells out)
Original Player Sonic Tee This shirt design is modeled after quite old design, maybe early 19somethings? (not 1990s...19 century) It may be made to resemble the cardbacks of the "Bicycle Brand" playing cards. Either way, it is attempting to look vintage. It uses classic standing Sonic and says "Original Player" as the slogan. Notice the spoke-like design & lightening bolts in the background. This also uses that 'faux wear' on the design. The photo appeared mid winter 2012, but appeared for sale more toward spring. Can this be found in a retail store anywhere? Also appears in SonicGear Clothing Store.
Here's a bright red or blue tee with the newer modern Thumbs-up/leaning Sonic (note the cast-shadow added too!) art with stripes. The stripes are kind of mottled with patterns for interest. The graphic is nice & big so Sonic really stands out. Watch for the quality of the print when you buy. This is by Bio-World (note the shaped tag) and can be found at Sears in 2012 winter for about 9.99. The blue one is a variant, released later. Is it at Sears too? The red one is in the SonicGear collection. Also appears in SonicGear Clothing Store.
Red Stripe Sonic Thumbs Up Tee
Sonic Masters of Spin Collage Stripe Shirt Now here's a shirt that makes use of innovative design. Not content with the 'regular' stock art, this one goes for a collage. You've got Silver, Shadow, Sonic, Knuckles (and for some reason) the Werehog. Each character is in a stripe of color, and only partially shown. A corresponding letter to the word "Sonic" is in matching color above. Above that is the phrase "Masters of the Spin Dash"...which isn't really true, especially for the werehog. (Did Silver ever spin dash? Could he?) The bottom has some checkers & the modern logo. It's def. something different for your collection, and the colored strips make for a cool design.

There is a white one also, available at Target. It does not have the checkering at the bottom. Photo wanted!
