Is the Video Games Shirts Industry Set to Get Bigger?
The video games shirts industry is showing good growth and has now become a separate entity to video games. Because of the rising popularity of the shirts and t-shirts plenty of manufacturers who produce the games now also produce a number of spin off products including clothing. Also bona fide fashion manufacturers and labels are seeing a rise in the number of video game shirts that are being sold in all demographics mini nes. It used to be that only spotty teenagers would wear these shirts but now it is the case where the video game shirt is now trendy! And because of the new designs and fabrics that are being used, even the fashion conscious are wearing them. This trend is set to continue, as well as mass market designs are being produced from mainstream retailers. This means that other markets and niches are opening up for video gaming shirts, including funny video games shirts, retro video game shirts and game over shirts.
There are also special limited edition designs available to buy. Because of the limited availability of these shirts we will soon be seeing collectable video gaming shirts in the near future, well that is if they are not already here. Imported designs from the far east are very popular in the rest of the world, where the logo or a certain iconic phrase from a game is written in Japanese. There is a certain kudos in wearing these shirts as most of the games tend to come from Japan. These are seen as authentic and the real deal.
There are now different types of manufacturing methods to create these shirts which are sold through out the internet. Not just through video game retailers. Fashion retailers now have their own line in video game shirts so it will not be hard to buy a shirt.
As this trend increases, the market will get bigger and bigger, more companies will get involved and the designs will get better and better. With more choice out there, however this does not always mean more quality. But the designs that we are seeing so far have been fantastic. Some online retailers which specialise in video game apparel, even offer a service for fans of this genre to submit their own designs, this means, designs wont be left to a few designers but will be in the hands of the people who have made these shirts popular in the first place, the customers.
The most popular shirts have been the game over t shirts and some of the retro gaming shirts such as space invaders and pac man. Well if you still don’t believe me, take a look on the internet or in the shops nearby to see the multitude of shirts available. You will see video gaming shirts every where. What all these shirts have in common, they all tend to have a simple design, capturing an iconic image from a game, it seems the more simpler a design, the more popular the shirt. Video gaming manufacturers have licensed their product to many different fashion retailers.
In summary what we are now seeing is a rapid growth in a market that has been adopted by a number of related industries.
