Sonic Clothing of the USA- Modern Page 34
|This page should have 2019 through 2021 Sonic clothes.
With the 'Boom Ban' gone, the USA can branch out into modern style Sonic stuff again. Watch for great new stock art (From Sega) to appear on these shirts. 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.

|This tee is a little strange...but there's sure not been anything like it before.
It's a white tee with a Sonic face on it but...he's all the way at the top of the tee such that the ears go over the shoulders. He's forward-facing too, and the sleeves are blue so like..his face is the sleeves also? Or the spikes? And the head is just hovering there/there's no body or anything, just white tee material and then the full color modern logo in the bottom corner. So anyone wearing it it would look like their head was kind of growing out of the Sonic head? This odd-it-tee appears in winter 2021, but where?
|This is a kids tee, but does that mean it goes up through 'teens' too? It's a light blue color, with the slogan "Game On!" written in a retro-sunset type font. It has getting ready to run classic Sonic, and a checkered ring for the background. Within the ring are horizontal stripes in red/yellow/white. It's meant to have a bit of a retro arcade style feel to the whole design, and it does succeede. This is probably an Amazon 2021 item.|
|Now, here is something new: A "Tee 3 Pack"
While socks and underwear are in multi packs a lot, this is a first for shirts. These can only be bought as 3 of them like this all at once in 2021. The torso part of each tee is themed to the color of the character, and the face has no outline for a little of the design theme 'the item is the face' that companies sometimes like to use (to good or ill effect hmm)
In this case you get neoclassic Knuckles, Sonic & Tails, all with forward-facing faces. The art for Knuckles shows him as pleasant/normal which is unusual no matter modern or classic. They have the lesser-used 'cheering Tails' face, but without the body/cheer pose on there it loses some context and may come across as yelling a bit. Sonic/forward facing is very standard. The Sonic & Knuckles shirts have charcoal collars and sleeves while the Tails one uses a lighter mottled gray. (Why? Did the dark color appear to dull the yellowish orange too much or something?) The sizes on these are LIKELY to be kids, but do they go up to teens so more people could choose them? How much are they & where do you find this 3 pack?
|Not since the days of Topheavy tees have fans been able to enjoy foil designs for shine on their shirts.
This one brings back the gold...using shiny gold foil for the running forward Modern Sonic & the modern logo at the top. The shirt doesn't slouch on the rest of the design though, it has scattered & somewhat various light blue-on-darker-blue modern Sonic line arts. These appear to cover the entire fabric for the rest of the shirt. They are done in a close enough color to the shirt fabric itself that it does not appear to make the design busy.
What company produces this? Where is it sold? You can write in for credit.
|Bio World continues in winter 2021, with what is probably a kids/teens size tee with the slogan "Gotta Go Fast". It features a fun neoclassic jumping Sonic in front of a rectangle background. The rectangle is half red, half black/blue checker. There are black lines & a checkered bar on the 'gotta go' area, to make it like a raceway/finish line type look. The shirt itself appears to be a slightly mottled dark blue color, which is used to color the Sonic art so that he doesn't use ink on any part that is blue.
This MAY be one of the first uses for this neoclassic art for him. It's a good one too, and a good choice to set him up in an action/fun pose like this. Classic Sonic is great, but the over-use of art can lead designs/shirts to look boring or 'already have something similar'. This new art should help to avoid that. But where is this sold?
|More of classic style Sonic & more of the "Gotta Go Fast" slogan, but this time in a sketchy format. This very pale blue adults size tee has a theme of sketchy art. The slogan is stamped-style in varoius fonts with 'stamp texture' in red, partially over the art. It then uses only black ink on the pale tee to create the design. There is a Green Hill scene with the iconic palm trees & checkered ground. However, when they apply the Sonic (likely neoclassic running) he's super big compared to the background. He is made of line art, and the blue/black areas are filled in with sketchy type scribble/hatching lines. The over-all effect gives it a sort of pencil art sketch look, which is something nice and pretty different. There's an "S" in the corner and below it a star bumper in a circle. Where is it sold?|
|This 4 panel shirt is for adults!
Another good design in sizes that will fit anyone. This has a fun 4 panel theme going on. The front of the tee is divided into 4 sections with one as spatter black on blue, one white with the full color logo, one with arms crossed classic style Sonic & one dark blue panel. The collar color matches the dark blue panel.
The art may be classic, but the panel look keeps the shirt fresh and interesting. It's listed as 'mens' but there's nothing particuarly men about it. How much does this cost and where is it sold?
|Target comes up with a rather unusual 3 Piece Set in 2021.
This is the Boys or Girls Kids Jogging 3 Piece Sonic Set. The name's a bit long, but it's interesting to see them throwing "Girls" in there because for whatever reason, it rarely happens. The choices are a bit unusual as well, because the yellow tee gives you a solo Eggman item (rare already) perfect for Eggfans. It says "Dr. Eggman" at the top and then has a hashtag below him in aqua and pink. But what is it? The factory photo always has the 2nd tee covering the word. Looks like #YOU ? But why? The other tee is white with a blue color/bluescale modern jumping/hand up Sonic on a pink palm tree stencil/spray style background. It has "Let's Roll!" slogan in light green at the bottom. The shorts are a mottled medium gray, with just the modern word Sonic up the side of one leg, kind of small. It's great that there's unusual color use going on, as well as a Sonic element on each item. This set is online at Target, as well as should be in stores. It's about 22 dollars.
|Here's the 2nd known Sonic swim-shirt. It's made of a more than usual sun-blocking fabric that dries quickly. Wearing this while swimming is supposed to help prevent sunburns (and look cool). It is more money than a usual tee though, it could be 19.99 at Target in 2021. It's in the kids/teens section, but how big the sizes go is unknown.
It has a white body, blue collar and red sleeves. The design is classic forward-facing Sonic with a background of blue & yellow cubes. At the bottom under his feet is written "SonicSpeed". It doesn't do anything new or wildly different, but it's a solid enough/primary colors type design if you didn't have something similar already. But, it is good to see Sonic on a diverse range of things.
