Sonic Clothing of the USA- Modern Page 26
|This page should have 2016 through 2018 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 seems to be producing less, but newcomer Bio World is making more. 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. However, it should be noted that Kohls, JC Penny, Hot Topic, and FYE are also getting into carrying Sonic shirts. GKWorld may also be getting into shirts as well!
You can also shop at the Sonic Gear Clothing Store. .(Gear store actually has a ton of stuff, about 2 pages of it, but it DOES rotate & sell out.

|The Sega Shop website is bringing Knuckles tees to the table in 2018. They are in adults sizes only, but are 25 dollars each.
The first is an all red tee with simple white crescent shape on the chest so that you can be like Knuckles too! This is a fun cosplay / subtle design shirt that only a Sonic fan would recognize. It's a good idea.
|It also has a counterpart sweat shirt over on Winter Wear. The 2nd is a gray tee with silly slogan. It uses the nwe forward facing classic Knuckles stock art & has "School of hard Knuccks" written in a circle around him with a 1994 year plate below his feet. It's a wacky play off of 'school of hard knocks' phrase.|
|A combination item!
Funko brings a combo item to store shelves in the summer of 2018. These arcade cabinet shaped boxes contain a tee shirt & Funko pop Sonic figure. The 'screen' for the arcade shaped box has the modern logo, but a picture of Green Hill Zone. The front of the box has a picture of which tee you get since it can't be seen in the package. The back shows you which figure, and it is finger-waving Sonic.
|The shirt itself is black with primary colors all-outlines design. It has Sonic's name, a row of rings & some 'floor' for him to be running on. However, the image on the tee is of funko pop styled Sonic so his head is super huge and he has the strange looking eye type. Photo by Taaron|
|The Sega Shop released these 6 tees for Sonic Mania PLUS in the summer of 2018. They're mostly just variants of eachother, but the Plus cast makes for a cool & colorful design. The art here is shaded & Mighty & Ray look really good and classically styled. (even though all the art here is technically neo-classic)
The first tee is the odd one out, and it is called "Tails vs A Chili Dog". Why is he having a fright while holding a food? The art is from the funny, silent Youtube Mania cartoon that was used to promote the game in several short installments.
|The characters were simplified with a unique looking funny style. The next design is the Mania Plus cast on blue, gray & white choices. (But why are there 2 blue choices?) The last tee uses the geometric circles/squares 'box art' background, with the logo & Plus cast. Each tee is about 26 dollars in the SegaShop online store. They are all adutls sizes.|
|This shirt is only available at Pacific Sun / Pac Sun!
It's a store generally found in shopping malls that has fun tees, shoes, school bags & other accessories. Sometimes they will obtain an exclusive item...and this one is quite nice! It uses the Sega CD era Japan art for Sonic in a sort of '3 point' stance looking concentrating. He's on a black/white checkered background, surrounded on 3 sides by Japanese words. The top word is his name. But what is the left edge word & the bottom word? (Write in if you can translate for credit!)
But look there in the bottom left corner, there's a little circle containing cute neo classic waving Tails. Everything here is in full bright color. The Tails detail is small, but the orange adds a fun splash of color to the design. This is an example of a nicely designed tee that doesn't resemble anything else while still being classically cool. This is an adult size item in 2018.
|This tee is only sold at Forever 21 stores!
This is a women's sizes tee (so, could maybe fit anyone) and it's called the "Sonic Tunnel Tee". The graphic has perspective grid lines in black on the white shirt background to create a square 'tunnel' that looks like it goes through the shirt. The characters are also drawn at different sizes to enhance the perspective and try to make it 3D & different. (It works, no other shirt uses this effect) Sonic is running in front, Tails is flying after, Shadow is shown (unusually!) hover-skating along & Knuckles is running in the back. There's Japanese text at the bottom that spells out "Sonic the Hedgehog" in a simple line font. Photo discovered by Pichu97/Charlie
